Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.
In the implementation of National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), a share of 15% of India’s total energy requirements is targeted to be met from renewable sources by 2020. Best choice for meeting the peak demand. Renewable is economic, non polluting and environmentally benign source of energy. The generation cost reduces with time.
Section 86. (Functions of State Commission): (e) promote co-generation and generation of electricity from renewable sources of energy by providing suitable measures for connectivity with the grid and sale of electricity to any person, and also specify, for purchase of electricity from such sources, a percentage of the total consumption of electricity in the area of a distribution licensee.
To promote generation of electricity based on non conventional sources of energy. To reduce the capital cost of projects. Promoting competition. Development of technologies and a sustained growth of these sources.
Lesser dependence on energy imports through a diverse and sustainable fuel-mix in furtherance of the aim of National Energy Security Sustaining accelerated deployment of renewable energy systems through development and manufacture apart from creating new sources of energy in furtherance of the aim of Energy Independence. Fuel Switching through new and renewable energy system/device deployment in furtherance of the aim of conventional Energy Conservation. Expand cost-effective energy supply for achieving per capita energy consumption level at par with global average through increasing share of new and renewable energy in the fuel mix in furtherance of the aim of Equity.
The key objectives of the Ministry are: To promote deployment of grid-interactive renewable power generation projects To promote renewable energy initiatives for: 1. meeting energy/ lighting needs in rural areas 2. supplementing energy needs in urban areas 3. supplementing energy needs in industry and commercial establishments, and To promote research, design and development activities at premier national institutions and industries on different aspects of new and renewable energy technologies and help development of new products To encourage development of a Robust Manufacturing Industry in Renewable Energy Sector
The West Bengal Electricity Regulatory Commission (WBERC) has mandated 4% of total procurement of electricity from RE sources as Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO) by 2012-13,
To promote and facilitate the growth of generation of electricity from renewable energy sources by way of optimum utilization of the RE potential in the State. a) Long-term objectives: I. Facilitating enhanced contribution of electricity generation from RE resources; II. Facilitating and sustaining private sector investment in the development of renewable energy and III. Adopting / evolving RE technologies and facilitating commercial development of the same e.g. wind, solar, tidal, geothermal etc;
b) Short-term objectives: i) Identifying technology-wise thrust areas and strategies for RE in the State; ii) Developing a Roadmap for each of the RE technologies; iii) Facilitating RE investments in the public as well as the private sector; iv) Developing future RE technologies via pilot projects, and v) Framing the basic building blocks to develop necessary regulatory, administrative, infrastructural and institutional mechanisms.
India is 5 th in total installed capacity in world. I. USA II. China III. Japan IV. Russia V. India (214.63GW) India has emerged as the fourth most attractive place globally in terms of its market potential for renewable energy after China, the US and Germany, according to Ernst & Young report.
