    • Development of renewable energy and its impact on Business Environment By Sarada Prasanna (10810055) Sourav Thakur (10810059) Sujan Mondal (10810062) Vema Jagadish (10810071) MBA 1 st Year,DoMS IIT Roorkee
    • 1. Need of Renewable Energy and Energy consumption status in India
    • The need of Renewable Energy
      • Energy is very important for people everywhere in the world
      • Many nations currently rely on non-renewable fossil and nuclear fuels to meet most of their energy demands.
      • Interest in renewable energy sources is growing because fossil fuels are running out and because people are worried about the way burning fossil fuels damages the environment e.g. the greenhouse effect and acid rain
      • The greenhouse effect is caused by an increase in the concentration of gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) in the earth’s atmosphere.
      • A temperature rise of just one or two degrees Celsius can cause flooding, drought, crop failures and stormy weather
      • Gases such as sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrous oxides (NOx) are released when fossil fuels are burned. They react with rain drops to form acid rain. Acid rain can damage crops and forests, it can make lakes and rivers acidic which can harm fish and aquatic life. It can also damage buildings.
    • Continue…………
      • Chimneys at power stations can be designed to stop harmful gases from being released to the atmosphere
      • There are grants available to help meet the costs of using renewable energy
      • If we can generate some of our own energy using renewable resources then we do not have to rely on other countries for our energy.
    • Indian Energy and Climate Change Status
      • India’s total commercial energy supply is dominated by coal and largely-imported oil. with renewable energy resources contributing less than 1% .
      • India experienced a generation deficit of approximately 10% (84 TWh) and a corresponding peak load deficit of 12.7% (over 15 GW).
      • To power the economic growth currently being targeted, it is estimated that India will need to more than double its installed generating capacity to over 300 GW by 2017.
      • India has implemented a National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), which suggested that 15% of energy could come from renewable sources by 2020.
          • Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).
    • Energy Sector Overview
      • The electricity intensity of the Indian economy—the percentage growth of electricity consumption that correlates with 1% of economic growth—fell from approximately 3.14% in the 1950s to 0.97% in the 1990s.
      • Today, for each 1% of economic growth, India needs around 0.75% of additional energy.
      • For GDP annual growth of 8%, the Planning Commission estimates that the commercial energy supply would have to increase at the very least by three to four times by 2031–2032 and the electricity generation capacity by five to six times over 2003–2004 levels.
    • India’s consumption of power
    • Sector wise division Between 1980 and 2009, energy consumption increased by almost seven times from 85,334 GWh to 596,943 GWh, which corresponds to an average annual growth rate of approximately 7.1%. The strongest increase was the consumption by private households, which increased by almost 14 times since 1980 at an average annual growth rate of 10%.
    • Power Generation Capacity The total power generation capacity in India in March 2010 was 159 GW. Of this, 64.3% was fossil-fuel-fired power plants (coal, gas, and diesel), 23.1% hydropower, 2.9% nuclear power, and 9.7% renewable energy.
    • Percentage of public and private sector power generation capacity by energy source ( 2010)
    • The Status of Renewable Energy in India
      • India has over 17 GW of installed renewable power generating capacity. Installed wind capacity is the largest share at over 12 GW, followed by small hydro at 2.8 GW. The remainder is dominated by bio energy, with solar contributing only 15 MW.
      • The wind industry has achieved the greatest success in India with an installed capacity of 12,009 MW at the end of June 2010. India has also installed 2,767 MW of small hydro plants (with sizes of less than 25 MW each), 1,412 MW of grid-connected cogeneration from bagasse, and 901 MW of biomass-based power from agro residues. Waste-to-energy projects have an installed capacity of 72 MW.
      • As of June 2010, solar PV plants in India had reached a cumulative generation capacity of approximately 15.2 MW.
      • 70% of electricity from wind projects is produced for direct consumption by large industrial facilities to mitigate the effect of frequent shortages of electricity from the national grid.
      • solar cooling has been a buzzword in the industry.
    • Continue……….

      • “ Our vision is to make India’s economic development energy-efficient. Over a period of time, we must pioneer a graduated shift from economic activity based on fossil fuels to one based on non-fossil fuels and from reliance on non-renewable and depleting sources of energy to renewable sources of energy. In this strategy, the sun occupies centre-stage, as it should, being literally the original source of all energy. We will pool our scientific, technical and managerial talents, with sufficient financial resources, to develop solar energy as a source of abundant energy to power our economy and to transform the lives of our people. Our success in this endeavour will change the face of India. It would also enable India to help change the destinies of people around the world.”
      • The objective of the National Solar Mission is to establish India as a global leader in solar energy, by creating the policy conditions for its diffusion across the country as quickly as possible.
      • Importance and relevance of solar energy for India
      • Cost:
            • The objective of the Solar Mission is to create conditions, through rapid scale-up of capacity and technological innovation to drive down costs towards grid parity.
            • The Mission recognizes that there are a number of off-grid solar applications particularly for meeting rural energy needs, which are already cost-effective and provides for their rapid expansion.
      • 2. Scalability :
            • The constraint on scalability will be the availability of space, since in all current applications, solar power is space intensive.
      • 3. Environmental impact :
            • Solar energy is environmentally friendly as it has zero emissions while generating electricity or heat
      • 4. Security of source :
            • From an energy security perspective, solar is the most secure of all sources, since it is abundantly available.
      • 5. Proposed Roadmap:
      • 6. Policy and regulatory framework :
            • The objective of the Mission is to create a policy and regulatory environment which provides a predictable incentive structure that enables rapid and large-scale capital investment in solar energy applications and encourages technical innovation and lowering of costs.
      • 7. Research and Development:
            • This Mission will launch a major R&D programme in Solar Energy, which will focus on improving efficiency in existing applications, reducing costs of Balance of Systems, testing hybrid co-generation and addressing constraints of variability, space-intensity and lack of convenient and cost-effective storage.
      • 8. Human Resource Development:
            • The rapid and large-scale diffusion of Solar Energy will require a concomitant increase in technically qualified manpower of international standard.
      • 9. Institutional Arrangements for implementing the Mission:
              • This Mission will be implemented by an autonomous Solar Energy Authority and or an autonomous and enabled Solar Mission, embedded within the existing structure of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
      • 10. International Collaboration:
              • Strategic international collaborations and partnerships aimed at meeting the priorities set out under the Mission would be developed, along with effective technology transfer mechanisms and strong IPR protection.
      • 11. Financing the Mission activities:
              • The fund requirements for the Mission would be met from the following sources or combinations:
      • i) Budgetary support for the activities under the National Solar Mission
