EfficientCarbon Corporate Profile - Renewable Energy
EFFICIENTCARBONHELPING YOU BUILD THE LOW CARBON ENTERPRISE COMPANY PROFILE
The Energy (R)Evolution• The world is at the cusp of an energy revolution.• Renewable Energy promises to be the hero for energy parched economies and is no longer ‘Alternative’ Energy anymore• Over the last decade 430,000 MW of renewable energy capacity has been installed, with global total investment reaching a record $ 257 billion in 2011• Solar PV prices have fallen on average by 60%, promising cheaper and sustainable power for everyone and reaching grid parity soon.
The Indian Renewable Energy Scenario • The entire public policy on Solar for India is dictated by the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission launched in 2009. It talks about achieving 20,000MW of energy generation through Solar in three phases: – 1000 MW by 2013 – Additional 3000 MW by 2017 – Finally reach 20,000 MW by 2022 • In addition to this, each state is announcing its own solar policy, eg: – Tamilnadu – 3000 MW (1000 MW - Grid connected, 1000 MW - REC & 1000 MW – Off grid) – Andhra Pradesh – 1000 MW • Wind power has immense potential in India with total power capacity projected to 779 GW in 2035. • This huge push for renewable energy will ensure India will be among the largest markets in the world for Renewable Energy.
