India races to double clean energy by 2017

NEW DELHI: India is aiming to reach 53,000 megawatts of generated clean power over the next five years, more than doubling its capacity. According to the Government of India's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, India will generate an extra 29,800 megawatts by 2017. This will be added to the nation's 23,128 megawatts of installed clean energy, doubling capacity to a total of 53,000 megawatts.

India: Solar Mission Phase II Targets 8 Million m2

In December 2012, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy in India published its plans for Phase II of the National Solar Mission (NSM). The 58-page document outlines the policy for the second phase, including targets, the role of the states and an implementation strategy (see the attached document). The overall aim is to install around 8 million m2 of collector area between March 2013 and March 2017 – in addition to the 6.07 million m2 of collector area which had already been commissioned until November 2012. The cumulative target until the end of Phase I (March 2013) is 7 million m2, and the country will, in fact, be on course to reach this number. Since the start of Phase I of the NSM in June 2010, the country has witnessed the installation of close to 2.5 million m2 of collector area totally.

India: Web-based Software SOLARWHIN Monitors Subsidised Systems

The solar thermal sector seems to appreciate SOLARWHIN, the new database of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). Of the 98 Channel Partners who are eligible to directly apply for subsidies on behalf of their clients, 47 have already registered online since the software was launched in August 2012. So far, the database, which is hosted on one of the ministry´s servers, includes the details of around 65,000 systems. The web-based tool was developed by the MNRE to monitor subsidised systems and to gather more information on the market. SOLARWHIN is short for SOLAR Water Heater Installations in India. Only accredited Channel Partners have access to the online database.

Solar Energy in India

CeRES (Centre of Research on Energy Security), TERI has come up with the latest issue of "Energy Security Insights" on Solar Energy in India: Assessing the Transition to a "Solar India". This issue looks at some of the issues that India's National Solar Mission raises and which need to be kept in mind as India tries to upscale the role of solar energy in its energy mix.
