Despite its huge potential in a largely agrarian country, biomass lacks competitiveness in India. It is also meagre in comparison with the other green energy sources.
Making coal-based power green
Indian cities suffer from one of the highest pollution levels in the world in regards to air quality. In fact, during the recent Diwali festivities, Delhi breathed in air polluted with particulate matter of up to 14 to 16 times the safe limits.
The key to achieving India’s energy goals
The Paris Climate Change Agreement came into force this year, marking a defining moment in international history. India emerged at the forefront of this development where it pledged to seek sustainable and smart solutions for the future.
Testing For Renewable Energy Installations
For the most part, testing electrical installations that include renewable energy sources covers familiar ground. There are, however, some specific requirements associated with these installations that are likely to be rather less familiar, as Simon Wood of Megger, UK explains.
Nuclear power will help India attain energy security
Developing nuclear energy sources is the only way to bring energy security in India, former chairman of Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC), VP Raja said. He also said with climate change being the most important global agenda, it is important for India to also increase its renewable energy generation capacity.
Biomass plays a vital role especially in rural areas, as it constitutes the major energy source to majority of households in India, but this resource has been small in terms of comparative scale in India, when compared to the other green energy sources.
Why India needs Microgrid
In an era where mankind is planning intra-planetary travel, jet speeds are expected to double, and a click of button is enough to get majority of things done; almost one-third of the Indian population does not have access to electricity
