RENEWABLE ENERGY IN INDIA

  1. 1. “……the time is running out…soon, there will be nothing left to burn on earth but earth itself… By: Radhika Miglani
  2. 2. Energy in India: An Overview  India consumes 3.7% of the world’s commercial energy making it the 5th largest consumer of energy globally.  Total installed capacity of 1,44,912 MW.  350 kg of per capita primary commercial energy consumption. 22% of world average.  Per capita electricity consumption: 600 kWhr per year.  About 80% of total rural energy consumption comes from non-commercial energy.  84% villages electrified. 44% of rural households electrified.
  3. 3. TYPES OF RENEWABLE SOURCES  Major Renewable Energy Sources  Solar Energy  Geothermal Energy  Wind Energy  Tidal Energy  Wave Energy  Hydroelectricity Energy  Wave Energy  Biomass
  4. 4. WORLD ENERGY OUTLOOK Renewable energy is generally defined as energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas: electricity generation, hot water/space heating, motor fuels, and rural (off-grid) energy services. About 16% of global final energy consumption presently comes from renewable resources, with 10% of all energy from traditional biomass, mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) account for another 3% and are growing rapidly. At the national level, at least 30 nations around the world already have renewable energy contributing more than 20% of energy supply. National renewable energy markets are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond. Wind power, for example, is growing at the rate of 30% annually, with a worldwide installed capacity of 282,482 megawatts (MW) at the end of 2012
