SOLAR RECYCLING – AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY

The energy industry has been going through a revolutionary phase, and the world is also gradually shifting towards sustainable or renewable energy sources. Amongst multiple renewable sources of energy, solar energy is a primary component in fighting against climate change. Backed by political will and decreasing costs, the sector has shown a significant growth rate in India and across the world. But here is a catch. Not all that looks sustainable falls under the category. The worrisome concern is with photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. They fall under the category of sustainable sources of energy, as they are dependent on solar…

Big Data: Making Green Energy more Sustainable & Accessible

Awareness of climate change is growing unprecedently across all the regions. The leading world economies have pledged to achieve net-zero emission levels. However, still, there is a lot of confusion on how these economies will manage this significant magnitude of renewable energy. Wind, Hydro, Solar & Hydrogen are the sources playing an essential part in echoing this vision. But both Solar & Wind are intermittent sources of energy. Sometimes it’s cloudy. Sometimes the wind doesn’t blow. On the other hand, the world is still exploring ways to harness Hydrogen. So to rely on the sun and the wind, we must…

Battery Energy Storage Systems: Paving the way for Next Energy Revolution

The next energy revolution is already here. The leaders in the energy sector, both public & private, are acquainted with the fact that our future energy systems must be clean and low carbon to ensure sustainable development. When it comes to future energy systems, one must be aware of the terms like Solar, Wind, Hybrid Energy Solutions, Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), and most importantly, Hydrogen. All these are examples of renewable energy. Ultimately, we need a system to store this energy to meet the demands of peak hours. That’s where the Battery Storage Energy System, becomes a critical part…

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging: The secret ingredients of a Successful Culture.

Understanding Diversity: Today, the concept of diversity has transformed from being a governmental or legal obligation to a strategic priority. The aim of attaining sustainable competitive advantage and the need to become an employer of choice has also instigated organizations worldwide to embrace the concept of diversity. So it is no longer possible to ignore the pervading influence of diversity in organizations as well. But the mere manifestation of diversity or embracing the concept of diversity can’t translate into success. Organizations have to manage diversity by celebrating, valuing, and actively encouraging the diversity of the workforce and with globalization &…

Here’s What it Takes to Reach Among Top 10 Solar Companies in India

Solar power has emerged as a viable alternative to traditional sources of energy, thereby enabling countries to strike a proper balance between energy security, economic development, and environmental sustainability. The solar energy industry is currently driven by Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technology and is set to change the dynamics of energy production and consumption across the world. For sustained economic development, it is critical for a country to have a large chunk of clean power in its energy mix. India has been a trendsetter in the adoption of solar energy, with a tremendous increase in solar capacity over the years, helping…

One Sun One World One Grid: A collective vision towards carbon neutrality

“The Sun Never Sets.” Even in the middle of the night, it shines with all the flashes on the other side of the planet and carries the potential to meet the energy demands of the entire human race. But do we have the required approach and technology to harness this constant energy source? The answer is in affirmation, and the whole world is making giant strides through path-breaking initiatives like OSOWOG (One Sun One World One Grid). It is a Green Grids international initiative to establish an interconnected global power grid. With this project, the wholesome energy comes from diversified…

India’s Renewable Energy Vision of 2030

Now, India is destined to achieve 450 GW of renewable energy installed capacity by 2030. All credit goes to the proactive policies of the Ministry of New & Renewable energy and the commitment to add non-conventional power capabilities to achieve the target of zero carbon emission. Currently, India’s solar power capacity has risen more than five times to 40 GW in March 2021 from 6.7 GW in 2016. This makes solar energy a rapidly growing industry in India and one to watch out for Still, the non-conventional power alternatives are costly and a handsome share of 280 GW (over 60%)…

ENERGY AS A SERVICE

The Power Industry is yet to embark on a major innovation journey in delivery of services. For more than a century, the Industry has been working on the traditional model i.e. producing power through central plant and delivering power through long distance transmission system. This has been the phenomenon for all types of major clients including domestic, commercial and industrial consumers. However, the scenario has been changing, as customers now have rather become passive recipients. Thus, the market is demanding transformation in the power sector. Now, customers have more choices as electric supply diversifies. New opportunities and adoption of renewable…

Green Hydrogen for an Energy – Independent India

It may be interesting to know that Hydrogen, which is the most abundant element on earth, does not exist in its free state. Hence, it needs to be separated from chemical compounds using various technologies such as steam methane reforming, partial oxidation of oil, coal gasification, and water electrolysis. Grey hydrogen is produced via a process called steam methane reformation (SMR) of natural gas and these emit large amounts of carbon dioxide. Majority of hydrogen today is Grey Hydrogen. Similarly, blue hydrogen is produced via natural gas but combined with carbon capture and storage (CCS) or carbon capture and use…

BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM (BESS) – The Backbone of Future

As the world moves towards 100% Renewable Energy, India is well on track to achieve its Paris agreement targets well before the target date of 2030,” India has maintained that it is not a polluter and cause of climate change and has voluntarily committed to reduce greenhouse gas emission intensity by 33-35 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. However, once we say this we need to have a mind-set shift and motivate to harness the potential of intermittent energy sources such as Solar Power, Wind Power, Battery Energy storage system and Green Hydrogen which not only reduce carbon emissions but…
