Solar ENERGY is the ‘backbone’ of next future energy systems

Solar power is approaching a “crossover point” where it makes sense for investors to back rays over coal, oil and gas,

Amid tumultuous oil markets and tumbling costs as photovoltaic cells are rolled out globally, the value of solar is already evident in the world’s sunniest places,

“I have no hesitation to predict of course in years to come solar will be the dominant backbone of our energy system, certainly of the electricity system,” .

“But in that same period though we will see that the demand for energy double, and I do not think solar can grow from the 1% it is now, to being the dominant force and thereby obviating the need for fossils fuel immediately, but it is going to be a multidecadal transition.”

Oil rout

Oil plunged below $40 a barrel in August, the first time in six years, as forecasts of slower demand growth raised concerns of a prolonged glut.

Lower prices have forced oil groups to shelve over $200 billion of assets. That increases the appeal of renewable energy, whose costs have tumbled in recent years.

Wind, solar, hydro and other renewable sources made up 59% of new power generation capacity installed in 2014. But that year renewables only accounted for 3% of global energy consumption, up from 0.9% a decade ago, according to BP’s statistical review.

The world will burn through the planet’s atmospheric allowance of CO2 emissions to cap within 30 years by some estimates to cap warming at 2C.

To meet that more than 80% of coal, half of gas and a third of oil needs to stay in the ground, analysts say.

If countries are serious in avoiding dangerous climate change, that signals vast fossil fuel investments in coal mines, oil rigs or gas fields will become “stranded”, incurring huge financial losses.

Analysis: A 7-step plan to avoid stranding your fossil fuel assets

 

The company sees energy production soaring from 250 to 400 million barrels of oil equivalent a year from 2010-2050 as its “minimum scenario”, as 3 billion in the developing world move from subsistence to modern users of energy

It has called for a carbon price with five European oil majors, signalling willing to work towards a UN climate agreement.

 

That includes recent drilling in the Arctic, whose production cost could top $100 a barrel, James Henderson at Oxford University’s Institute for Energy Studies told the Guardian.

India has finally begun to make its mark in solar energy .

Significantly, as was the case with Germany, solar power costs have been falling year on year. It is worth recalling that it was Germany  which catalysed this industry worldwide. It began setting up solar facilities in 2001, when installation costs were well above $8 per Watt. Today they are under $1, thanks to the demand volume that Germany helped generate, which in turn saw large-scale production of solar cells. China was quick to grab this opportunity and has emerged as the world’s largest producer of solar panels.
In India, solar power bids invited under the National Solar Mission Phase I offered tariffs of Rs7.49 to Rs9.44 per kWh. But, as each state went in for reverse auctions for setting up solar facilities, costs kept dropping. The solar bids conducted by Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company Limited recently arrived at prices of Rs5.05/kWh. Prices could fall further. In a recent bid in the US, NV Energy, a Nevada utility, agreed to purchase 100MW solar power under a fixed-price 20-year power purchase agreement at 3.87cents/kWh (Rs2.52/kWh).

Rajasthan could push down solar costs even further. After all, this state has the largest potential for solar power in India (see chart). Already, according to BK Dosi, managing director, Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Ltd (RREC), “The state has secured the leading position in solar power with a total generation capacity of 1,167 MW, as of May 31, 2015. Similar trends can be observed in Wind Energy production with a total installed capacity of over 3324 MW.”

As an India Ratings report points out, “Solar power is likely to become cheaper than, or equivalent to, conventional thermal energy prices over the next two to three years.” Solar power costs could reach anywhere between Rs4 and Rs4.5 per kWh by March 2018. This decline in costs, explains India Ratings, will be driven by several factors: (i) a decline in capital costs (solar modules and other balance of plant), (ii) an increase in efficiency, (iii) a shift towards large solar photovoltaic projects leading to the economies of scale and (iv) lower return expectations by developers.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, solar photovoltaic prices have fallen nearly 80% since 2008. Additionally, solar module efficiency has witnessed an annual increase of 3.5%-4.5%.

This may be welcome news, but there are dark clouds that have begun looming large.

Last fortnight, founder, Masayoshi Son, decided to demand a change in India’s solar power policies. He plans to produce 20 gigawatts (GW) of solar energy in India!

But aware of how state government power distribution companies (discoms) — which are mandated to purchase solar power — do not pay on time, he has asked the central government to counter-guarantee payments that state discoms have committed themselves to. The last time a sovereign guarantee was granted to anyone was Enron. Obviously, the current government would not want to do something that has become repugnant to policymakers by now.

Clearly, some kind of escrow arrangement which allows power producers — who have power purchase agreements (PPAs) with state discoms — the first right to draw such funds needs to be put into place. No investor would like to commit himself to investment worth several billion dollars, where the biggest (at times only) purchasers are state discoms. After all, many such discoms have terrible balance sheets, and do not enjoy a good reputation when it comes to meeting their payment obligations.

The other dark cloud is the poor focus the government has given to rooftop generation of solar power (http://dnai.in/cyyp). The concept isn’t new. Israel began doing so since the 1970s — it is mandatory for each newly constructed house to have rooftop solar facilities.

India, with its huge population, has more rooftops than most countries. Obviously, using rooftops in India would make immense sense, because it would benefit many. Its citizens, who allow such facilities on the top of their hoses, would earn some money. It would also reduce the pressure on land acquisition. Most importantly, rooftop solar would also help create huge employment opportunities. Remember, Germany currently employs more people in the solar industry than in the automobile sector.

But then the Indian government has not yet come up with attractive policies to encourage rooftop solar power generation. It needs to announce better financing (priority sector lending, interest rate subvention), improve availability and cost of debt financing, and offer a wide range of net-metering policies.

True, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat are the leading states with close to 30% share (>100 MW) of total rooftop capacity. But it is nothing compared to the 2.7 GW of solar power facilities already installed, or the 40 GW of power being planned. Today, more rooftop solar power is being planned in countries that have fewer houses — Australia where, in 2014, a rooftop solar system got added every 2.8 minutes; Germany which already had 8.5 GW mark in 2015 and has almost achieved grid parity; and Israel.

Unless these issues are addressed, the progress of solar power will be patchy. More worrying, the long-term consequences of ignoring these issues could be very, very painful.

Solar Power Plans In India – Increase in energy consumption

How could the world’s third-largest coal consumer use coal to get more solar power?

India’s government is ordering its state-owned utility, NTPC, to sell electricity from solar power along with electricity from coal-fired power in order to boost solar’s position in the country. The decision, dating back to the middle of July but first reported by Bloomberg, mandates that the utility sell currently-cheaper coal power bundled into one unit with solar power, which is currently more expensive.

This could have the effect of expanding the production and usage of solar power, making it less expensive for distribution companies to bring it to customers. India’s power distribution companies are also run by the government, and had been losing money when buying more expensive electricity and selling it at a lower price.
The other effect, of course, will be the continued use of quarter-century-old coal plants that will get their power output bundled with newer solar plants coming online. This helps guarantee the coal plants’ operation, as well as their carbon emissions.

“These plants are already 25 years old,” Rupesh Agarwal, a partner at BDO India LLP, told Bloomberg. “Will they function for that many more years? Do we need to extend the lives of these plants to bundle with solar energy when solar on a stand-alone basis is becoming competitive?”
NTPC will construct 15 gigawatts of solar over the next four years as a part of this deal.
Coal India, the largest coal company in the world, has seen the value of solar for years — the company has installed solar panels at mine installations across the country.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi committed to 100 gigawatts of solar capacity in the next seven years, which will be a large increase from the current 4.5 gigawatts. This capacity will be an almost even split between distributed rooftop installations (about 40 gigawatts) and larger grid-connected solar farms.
Boosting solar capacity to 100 gigawatts would be hard, as the Indian consulting firm Bridge to India recently estimated the country was on track to install 31 gigawatts over the next four years.

Should they achieve it, this will help achieve the other major energy goal put forth by the government: bringing electricity to the 400 million households that currently do not have it. This means more power, from everywhere. Renewable prices — especially solar — are dropping, which helps those trying to limit the growth of India’s carbon emissions. At the same time, India has become more and more dependent upon imported fossil fuels — including coal despite significant domestic reserves. Recent reports have predicted that India will outpace China in coal imports in the near future.

“Despite its significant coal reserves, India has experienced increasing supply shortages as a result of a lack of competition among producers, insufficient investment, and systemic problems with its mining industry,” according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. “Although production has increased by about 4% per year since 2007, producers have failed to reach the government’s production targets.”
China has committed to slowing and reversing its coal usage due to climate and air quality concerns. A recent study found that over 17 percent of all deaths in China are related to high pollution levels. Yet Indian cities have to struggle with some of the worst air pollution in the world.

It’s not just solar that has a lot of potential in India. A study released last week found that India’s wind energy capacity is much higher than originally anticipated — 302 gigawatts for turbines with hubs reaching 100 meters, compared with the 100 gigawatts previously thought.
The government is also trying to keep energy demand low — last month, Energy Minister Piyush Goyal committed India to replace all conventional streetlights with LEDs within two years. This will cut demand almost to almost a third of current levels — 3,400 megawatts to 1,400 megawatts. Fortunately for them, LED streetlight prices have dropped almost by half in the last year.

Renewable Energy Market India – solar energy solutions in your city

If you search Google for “clean tech” or “clean energy,” you’re almost guaranteed to find an article about India. Every week, there’s news about the country’s ambitious renewable energy efforts and the hurdles it must overcome to reduce its carbon emissions.

India has one of the most aggressive clean energy goals of any nation in the world, with a plan to have 100 gigawatts of solar capacity installed by 2022, which is a five-fold increase from the previous government’s target goal. A large portion of the installations would be through rooftop solar power systems, which is a critical aspect to bringing electricity to rural areas.

There are 1.25 billion people living in India, and the effects of its rapid population growth on the rest of the world will continue to come to light in the next few years. Since the country is such a key player in the climate change conversation, it’s important to understand its renewable energy market and why it matters for the global economy and for the planet.

With that, here are three key things to know about the state of things.

1. India is an extremely attractive market right now.

According to Ernst & Young Renewable Energy Market Attractiveness Index, India is the fifth most attractive market in the world, which is a big improvement within the last two years. India’s push for clean energy comes ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris at the end of this year.Most nations have already submitted their specific climate action plans, and India is supposed to do so soon.

According to the latest data from India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, 4,089 megawatts of renewable energy capacity were added from 2014 to 2015, which is more than 8.5 percent than the targeted 3,770 megawatts. By the end of June 2015, India had 4 gigawatts total of solar capacity. India as a whole has massive solar power potential — according to the National Institute of Solar Energy in India, up to 750 gigawatts — but the breakdown of where that power will be generated will depend on the states.
