GUJARAT- A LEADER
is rich in renewable energy resources – 300
days of sunshine, Rann of Kachchh where the land is
endless and the sun’s heat relentless, good winds
along its 1600 km long shoreline, scope for energy
plantation in its vast wastelands, waste to energy
options that harness bio, agro and industrial–waste
GEDA(Gujarat Energy Development Agency) involved
for the promotion and popularization of alternative and
energy efficient technologies in Gujarat.
STRATEGIES PROMOTING RENEWABLE ENERGY
To Promote and popularize through schemes and
programmes formulated in the light of the Central and
State governments policy.
These include Socially oriented schemes for urban, tribal and
remote and underdeveloped regions.
Commercially oriented schemes
Demonstration projects and programmes/schemes
Aid in the form of subsidies for production and
dissemination for RE Technologies
Support R & D Activities
Information and Education Activities
SOLAR ENERGY IN GUJARAT
is endowed with huge solar
energy potential with most of the
state having about 300 sunny days
per year with annual mean daily
global solar radiation in the range of
Total capacity of 852.31 MW Solar
Power Projects installed at various
locations in Gujarat till 31.03.2013.
Gujarat is the first state to launch its
own solar policy in 2009. The Gujarat
solar policy was in place a year
before the NSM was announced.

INITIATIVES TO IMPLEMENT SOLAR ENERGY
Government of Gujarat has launched the ambitious
‘Gandhinagar Photovoltaic Rooftop Programme’ .
This programme offers their rooftop or terrace for
installation of Solar Photvoltaic System (SPV) for solar
Gujarat government has taken a step forward with an
initiative to power the billboards with solar power. This
would obviously be a low compared to total energy
Purchase price of electricity from solar thermal at
Rs. 11.00 per kWh for first 13 years and in the 13 the
13th year Rs. 4.00 per kWh
SOLAR POWER: CANAL TOP SOLAR POWER
This is an ambitious project
by GUJARAT STATE
The pioneer innovation in this
project is combination of solar
power generation with water
It’s a pilot project of 1 MW
Canal top solar power plant.
No of Modules
Canal Length used
No of Blocks
1.5 Million units/year
4.6 - 6.4 kWh/m2/day
750 meters long x 16
8 Blocks – each of 125
width of the canal at the above location is about 4 m
(at the bottom) and the canal bank is over 6 m; avoiding
the immediate vicinity of the canal bank and keeping in
mind the safety of canal, it was possible to install the
structure with a span of 12 m.
But ultimately the structure was designed for 16 m wide
so that the same design could be utilised for larger canal
width in future.
WHAT IS UNIQUE AND NOTEWORTHY OF THIS
available resources to optimum use i.e. use
of Canal top to mount Solar PV panels which also
eliminates the need of land to install solar PV
Minimization of the transmission and distribution
loss of electricity;
Retard the growth of algae in the water;
Improve the efficiency of the solar plant and yield a
higher electricity output due to canal water;
Saving of CO2 emission by 1, 280, 000 Kg per year.
FUTURE OF SOLAR ENERGY
Charanka Solar Park is the Asia’s first Solar Park.
The Solar Park will be established on 2,000 ha of arid
land to generate to 590 MW solar power.
Gujarat Govt. is planning to implement Canal top solar
power project this on 10% of the existing canal network
of 19,000 kilometres and they estimated that 2,200
megawatts of solar power generating capacity can be
installed. So there is immense potential for future
Gujarat government is coming up with new roof-top
solar power policy.
New Solar PV Power Plants have been
commissioned under its most discussed and
successful Gujarat Solar Policy they are aiming 1000
Mwatt increment in capacity in next 5 yrs.
INTRODUCTION TO WIND ENERGY
government’s focus on tapping renewable energy
has led to sharp rise in the capacity to generate power
using wind energy in the last few years.
According to official data, wind power generations
capacity in the state has increased a staggering ten times
in just six years.
The Gujarat government has set out the following for the
Water pumping windmill-design, development, research
Setting up to stand-alone wind turbine generators.
Setting up of wind farms for power generation.
Encouraging privatization of wind power generation in
WIND POWER POLICY
Power Policy - 2007
Amendment to Wind Power Policy
GERC Regulation on Wind Power dated August 11,
Wind Power Policy extension dated 19.03.2013
Wind Power Policy 2009 GEDA
Wind Power Policy 2013
Dated 25th July 2013.
Objective: This policy will come into force with effect from
the date of issue of this resolution and shall remain in
operation up to 31st March 2016.
Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) installed and
commissioned during the operative period shall become
eligible for the incentives declared under this policy, for a
period of twenty five years (25) from the date of
commissioning or for the life span of the WTGs, whichever
APPLICATION FORM FOR WTG PROJECT
application form for obtaining permission for
setting up of Wind farm project in the state of
Gujarat shall be obtained from GEDA, Gandhinagar,
on payment of Rs. 5000/- in cash or demand draft,
during office hours. The application form is nontransferable.
Up to 25 MW:- Rs. 2.50 lacs
26 MW - 50 MW:- Rs. 5.00 lacs
51 MW – 75 MW:- Rs. 7.50 lacs
76 MW and above:- Rs.10.00 lacs
Total capacity of 3114.250 MW Wind Power Projects have
been installed as of 30th April,2013
Wind power generations capacity in the state has increased a
staggering ten times in just six years.
GETCO (Gujarat Energy Transmission Company) will provide
grid connectivity to Wind farms or permit private producers to
lay transmission lines.
Today, Gujarat has already installed Wind Power Projects
which is already catering to 7.6 % of the annual energy
consumption of the State at an investment of Rs. 9500 crore.
These Projects annually generate 3800 million units of
electricity, saving 2.60 MT coal and reducing the carbon
emissions levels by 3.80 million tonnes.
Tamil Nadu, which has been enjoying leadership position in
wind energy sector in India, may lose out on its top position to
FUTURE OF WIND ENERGY IN INDIA- OFFSHORE
Offshore wind energy sector needs special attention to ensure
sustainable growth. Due to this MNRE is set to launch the
National Offshore Wind Energy Authority (NOWA)
to proliferate deployment of offshore wind energy projects in
Provisions made by Gujarat Finance Minister Nitin Patel for the
country’s first offshore wind energy project in Gujarat in the
State’s budget for 2013-14.
Tata Power have expressed interest in setting up offshore
wind energy projects in Gujarat.
Security is one critical aspect.The government has been
talking to the Indian Coast Guard about this issue. There have
been reports that the large wind farms pose security issues
due to complications with radar imaging.
Transmission of energy is another challenge.

TIDAL ENERGY PROJECTS
state government approved Rs.25cr for
setting up the 50 MW plant at the Gulf of Kutch.
According to the Gujarat Power Corporation
Limited, if successfully commissioned, its capacity
will be increased to from 50 to 200 MW.
Rs.55,000cr project, to be completed by 2020, will
have a vast fresh water reservoir with gross
storage of 16,791 million cubic metres of water,
35 km long dam across, The Gulf of Khambhat
with an installed capacity of 5,880 MW.
HYDRO AND GEOTHERMAL ENERGY
State government is planning mini-hydro power
projects with a total capacity of 10MW in places like
Karjan, Damanganga and Vanakbori projects in south
Geothermal zone located in Cambay between
Narmada and Tapi river. Cambay Garben (Gujrat)
There are no operational geothermal plants in India.
But still in cambay ,steam discharge is estimated to be
3000 cu meter/ day. This shows the potential of
Geothermal energy in India.
Gujarat’s Exponential progress in the field of renewable
sources of energy emphasizes the importance of a sound
policy and the will to implement it.
GEDA has played a pioneering role in the development of
a long-term renewable policy and implementing of
sustainable energy programmes across the state.
Today, Gujarat is at par with the western world in
harnessing nature to generate energy.
By being very proactive ,Gujarat government has shown
that Renewable energy can be a very attractive
investment option for private players.
