How can India’s Solar Ambitions Become Reality – delhi gurgaon noida ncr

At the Paris climate talks, now in their second week, the spotlight is on India’s ambitious—very ambitious—commitments toward cleaner energy.

The most significant: New Delhi’s pledge to increase the amount of solar power that can be generated in the country to 100 gigawatts by 2022.

That’s more than 20 times India’s current solar deployment. It’s also more than all of Europe’s solar capacity, and more than half the world’s, as of the end of last year.

The target, they acknowledge, is “perhaps at this point only aspirational.” Meeting it will require some potentially difficult reforms by both federal and state governments.

But the target won’t be achieved only by building the massive solar parks that are the Indian government’s focus today, the authors argue. Encouraging rooftop and off-grid solar projects will help create the broad political support crucial to the solar push.

For the biggest solar projects, which India hopes will account for 60 gigawatts of capacity by 2022, the cost of the electricity produced has already fallen beneath the cost of power generated from imported coal, and could soon be cheaper than power from domestic coal.

Still, solar developers face difficulties acquiring land and getting permissions to build transmission lines.

Deeper obstacles, the researchers write, lie with the utility companies that buy and distribute electricity to homes and factories.
Indian utilities’ ragged infrastructure and financial woes have deterred investment in both clean and unclean power generation. “Even if there is enough centrally generated power to meet on-grid consumer demand,” Messrs. Sivaram, Shrimali and Reicher write, “a significant amount of that power is lost as it travels through troubled electricity grids, and in many cases utilities are not even able to purchase all of the power generated by power plants.”

India’s utilities have racked up $55 billion in losses over the past six years. The federal government recently announced a plan for the country’s state governments to assume the debts of utilities that improve their operating efficiency.

As a backup, so to speak, Messrs. Sivaram, Shrimali and Reicher suggest creating a federally administered fund to buy power from solar generators when distribution companies aren’t in a position to do so, thereby reducing risks to developers.

Such a fund was outlined as part of a 2010 national solar program. It isn’t running yet.

The federal government could also help finance solar projects, the researchers write, by both subsidizing short-term loans and providing longer-term loans directly to developers.

That would be far more cost-effective for the government, according to the authors, than the tax benefits and capital grants currently offered to large solar projects. A currency-hedging facility could also be created to help attract foreign capital.

In rooftop solar installations, achieving India’s target of 40 gigawatts by 2022 would require a doubling of capacity each year. Using solar to supplement diesel generators could make a big difference to air pollution and energy costs for factories and office buildings in places where the grid is patchy.

The researchers note, however, that not all Indian states currently have mechanisms for customers to sell self-generated solar power back to the grid.

Enabling “net metering” would give a big push to personal solar installations, the researchers write, though they acknowledge that cash-strapped utilities may not be so keen to allow customers to zero out their power bills.

However, in a well-designed system, such as those that exist in parts of the U.S., utilities can use compensation for solar to keep commercial and industrial customers from exiting the grid altogether.

Currently, factories and offices in India pay vastly higher rates for electricity on the grid than those paid by homes and farms. State governments restrain utilities from raising prices for these customers.

Reducing subsidies would lift electricity prices and therefore the prices paid for rooftop solar power fed into the grid, making it more attractive for households, too, to invest in their own installations.

The smallest portion of India’s planned solar upgrade is in off-grid projects, which the government hopes will total 3 gigawatts by 2022.

Solar panels and batteries for powering appliances in a single home, as well as “microgrids” that serve a small cluster of power users, stand to bring enormous benefits to the 455 million in India who have limited or no access to the electricity grid, the authors write.

But few of these people can afford even the simplest solar technology, and finance options are limited, Messrs. Sivaram, Shrimali and Reicher write.

For solar vendors, collecting payments from village customers is difficult, and regulatory uncertainties can make developers reluctant to invest in rural places. If the grid is expanded unexpectedly into an area, then off-grid systems are put out of business.

The Indian government also subsidizes fuel for gas lamps, making solar even more uncompetitive.

Mr. Sivaram, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, said reaching 100 gigawatts requires political commitment and smart interventions, not necessarily heaps of new government spending.

“Originally, last year, I thought it was a fake target—an overambitious target that was meant to catalyze progress,” Mr. Sivaram said from Paris, where the researchers are presenting their paper on Tuesday.

Instead, he has found that officials in Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government are “sincere in their belief that they can achieve this goal, and are willing to do what it takes.”

Mr. Sivaram said: “I get the sense, talking to the Modi administration, that this is a super-high priority, if not priority No. 1.”

As ingenious and environmentally friendly as solar energy solutions are, they’re not always as efficient as we’d like them to be – and of course, they’re only generating new electricity when the Sun is out. But an international team of scientists has come up with a new type of energy system they’re calling ‘hydricity’, which combines the power of sunlight with hydrogen fuel.

There are two ways we get energy from the Sun: photovoltaic cells (the panels you see on rooftops) and solar thermal power plants, which concentrate the Sun’s rays, then use the generated heat to warm up water and drive turbines using the steam that’s produced. The latter method captures more of the Sun’s solar spectrum, but is less efficient than a standard solar panel, and can only work in direct sunlight – which is why you only find them in parts of the world that get plenty of sunshine.
This is where hydricity comes in. By combining solar thermal power plants with hydrogen fuel production facilities, the researchers say, efficiencies in both types of power can be improved. An integrated system would produce both steam for generating electricity immediately, and hydrogen for storing it for later use – a crucial consideration as the countries of the world become more dependent on renewable energy.

The team, from Purdue University and Switzerland’s Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne, says it can produce hydrogen at an efficiency of 50 percent and electricity at an unprecedented 46 percent efficiency, thanks to the way the high-pressure turbines can be used to run in succession of the lower-pressure ones.

Over the course of an average 24-hour cycle, it’s claimed that hydricity could reach a Sun-to-electricity efficiency of 35 percent, which is as good as the best multijunction photovoltaic cells combined with battery power.

The hydrogen fuel produced alongside the electricity is important: not only could it find uses in transportation, chemical production and other industries, it doesn’t discharge when stored or degrade with repeated use. When the Sun goes down, the stored hydrogen power could kick in, and that means turbines don’t need to be stopped or restarted.

“The concept provides an exciting opportunity to envision and create a sustainable economy to meet all the human needs including food, chemicals, transportation, heating and electricity,” said one of the researchers, Rakesh Agrawal from Purdue. “Traditionally, electricity production and hydrogen production have been studied in isolation, and what we have done is synergistically integrate these processes while also improving them.”

So far, the scientists have only produced simulated models of the process – the next step is real-world experiments. The group’s work has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

India currently has a solar project pipeline of 15.7GW under bidding-cum-development. The country could reach 6GW in installed solar capacity by next fiscal year, making it one of the leading solar nations worldwide, the consulting firm said.

India has commissioned about 2GW of solar capacity so far this calendar year. Of the 5GW of installed capacity till date, about 4.7GW is utility solar capacity and about 525 megawatt (MW) is in rooftop capacity, .

The country has raised its 2022 solar energy target to 100GW from 20GW as part of the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s efforts to lower dependence on coal-fuelled electricity.

“While the central government has laid down the ambitious target of 100GW by 2022, states have taken the lead over central government schemes in the last year. Encouraged by falling costs and growing need for green energy, states like Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have all announced substantial policy initiatives,”

India’s four southern states are expected to dominate the market over the next two years, taking a lead over states such as Rajasthan, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, which have historically been the front runners, according to the consulting firm.

States such as Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Gujarat are leading the total rooftop installed capacity. In 2015, about 240MW of rooftop capacity was added despite lack of any major rooftop specific initiatives. “We expect the market (rooftop) to grow at over 50% rate in the next few years,”

India to give USD30 million to boost global solar energy

Le Bourget (France): India has launched an ambitious alliance of 121 developed and developing sun- drenched countries and announced an assistance of USD 30 million to dramatically boost the use of clean solar energy and reduce global carbon emissions.
The International Solar Alliance was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with French President Francois Hollande yesterday on the sidelines of the 195-nation United Nations climate summit here to tackle climate change.

The alliance from both developed and developing countries aims to mobilise USD 1 trillion by 2030 to be invested in the generation of clean solar energy.

Modi also announced that India will host the initiative in the premises of the National Institute of Solar Energy in Gurgaon, Haryana.

“The vast majority of humanity is blessed with generous sunlight round the year. Yet many are also without any source of power. We want to bring solar energy into our lives and homes by making it cheaper, more reliable and easier to connect to grid,” Modi told members of the alliance.

He said that India will provide land and contribute about USD 30 million to build the Secretariat infrastructure of the initiative and support its operation for the next five years until 2021.

“This is an alliance that brings together developed and developing countries, governments and industries, laboratories and institutions in a common enterprise,” Modi said.

“This day is the sunrise of new hope ?- not just for clean energy, but for villages and homes still in darkness; and for our mornings and evenings filled with a clear view of the glory of the sun,” he said.

Modi said that as the developing world lifts billions of people into prosperity, the hope for a sustainable planet rests on a bold global initiative and it shows India’s determination to harness the Sun’s unlimited energy.

He stated that advanced countries need to leave enough carbon space for developing countries to grow. “That is natural climate justice,” Modi asserted.

Hollande lauded Prime Minister Modi’s initiative as a paradigm shift.

To highlight the importance of solar energy, Modi said that in Indian tradition, Sun is the source of all forms of energy.

“Today, when the energy sources and excesses of our industrial age have put our planet in peril, the world must turn to Sun to power our future,” he added.

Modi highlighted that India has a capacity of 4GW and has set a target of adding 100 GW of solar power by 2022. “By the end of next year, we would have added 12 GW.”

The idea of solar alliance was mooted by Modi during the the India-Africa Forum Summit last month.
