NTPC Ltd. has set up the largest ever solar photovoltaic (solar power generation) floating plant in Visakhapatnam. It is a 25 MW project on the Seamhydry Thermal Power Station Reservoir. Solar-powered electrical energy is a project that is flexible [પરિવર્તનશીલ] Has been established under the scheme.
Indian Army launches solar power plant in Sikkim
The Indian Army has set up a plant in Sikkim to generate electricity from solar energy. It was established for the benefit of the Indian Army. The plant uses vanadium battery technology. This vanadium is the 60th element in the modern periodic table. Its atomic weight is 144.242.
What does the ‘Global Wind Report’ say?
The Global Wind Report (Global Wind Energy Report, Year 2021) was published by the Global Wind Energy Council on March 25, 2021. Even though the year 2020 was a record year for wind energy, the report warns that in the coming decade the capacity to generate electricity from wind energy should be tripled from where it is now. In order to achieve the target of the weather and the global warming that is taking place nowadays, the increase in temperature is 2 degrees Celsius higher than the average global temperature before the Industrial Revolution. Can be kept within additional limits.
In the year 2020, Rs 30 lakh crore was registered for electricity.
In the year 2030, there will be more two-wheelers and three-wheelers among the electric vehicles in India. According to the report, two-wheelers and three-wheelers will be more prevalent in electric vehicles at that time. The report also states that the number of buses running on electricity will be less at that time. Out of the total vehicles sold at that time, the proportion of electric buses will be less. Out of the total vehicles sold at that time, sales of electric buses would be only 15%. The reason behind this will be easy registration of two wheelers and tricycles under ‘Fame II’ scheme. The report also states that so far the money has been allocated under the ‘Fame II’ scheme
Only 3% of the money has been spent on 30,000 vehicles.
What is the state of renewable energy in India?
India’s electricity generation capacity is 373 gigawatts, or 373,000 megawatts, of which 62% comes from thermal power stations, which generate electricity by burning coal. Also 12.2% is hydroelectricity (electricity generated by allowing water to fall from dams from a height). 1.8% is electricity derived from nuclear energy and 24% is renewable energy such as wind energy, solar energy, electricity derived from biomass and other renewable sources. Wind power contributes 43% to the total electricity generated from renewable energy sources in India. India currently generates 89 gigawatts (89000 MW) of electricity from renewable energy sources.
Scientists have developed a system that can trap carbon dioxide and convert it into solar fuel.
Photosynthesis is the process by which plants make their own food in the leaves with the help of water absorbed by the roots in the presence of sunlight and inhaled carbon dioxide through the leaves. It is said that the Center for Advanced Science Research has developed a system that can trap carbon dioxide in the air and convert it into solar fuel. He called this process ‘artificial photosynthesis’. This artificial photosynthesis harms solar energy to reduce the adverse effects of the emissions that are currently accumulating in the Earth’s lower atmosphere to combine fossil fuels and convert the trapped carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide. Which carbon monoxide can be used as fuel in inter combustion engines.
Japan has approved a grant of 4 billion 2 crore yen (2 billion 5 crore rupees) for the super use of solar power generated in the southern Andaman Islands.
Japan has approved a grant of 4 billion 2 crore yen (Rs 2 billion 5 crore in Indian currency) as part of the first ever official assistance in development projects in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The grant was approved to improve the uninterrupted power supply to the islands. The grant will be used to obtain a system stabilizer for better use of the electrical energy that will be derived from solar energy there.
US approves Crimson Solar Power project
The United States has just approved a 55 550 million Crimson solar power project. The project will provide solar-powered electricity to 87,500 households. The project will be located in the Desert of California. The project site is located 13 miles west of Blythe.
Power consumption has increased in India.
India’s electricity consumption increased by 4.8% to 50.36 billion units during the first fortnight of December 2020, indicating a consistent increase in economic activity, according to government data. According to the Ministry of Power, during the first fortnight of December, 2020 (December 1 to December 15), power consumption was 48.4 billion units. Power consumption during the whole month of December 2020 was 101 billion 8 units. Thus, power consumption increased during the last fortnight of December. To meet such ever-increasing power consumption, there is a need to emphasize the need for renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy.
In the year 2020, electricity generated by wind energy increased by 90%, while electricity generated by solar energy increased by 50%.
The International Energy Agency has released its ‘Year 2021 Renewable Energy Update’ report. The energy agency has projected a 25% increase in its global forecasts for wind and solar energy. The report states that by the year 2020, 280 gigawatts or 2 lakh 80 thousand megawatts were installed. This is an increase of 45 MW compared to the year 2019. The 45% increase in 2020 is the biggest increase in the last three decades. Electricity from wind energy has increased by 90% while power from solar energy (photo voltaic) has increased by 50%.
