As Chandigarh was selected to be developed as a ‘model solar city’, the UT administration is giving solar power a push.

Despite significant achievements in sustainable energy innovation and market scaling of technologies such as solar, wind energy storage and others, the rate of change is not fast enough.

VOLGODONSK: Even as the civil work for the third unit of Kudankulam nuclear power plant, in Tirunelveli district on the southern corner of Tamil Nadu, is going on at a brisk pace, its lifeline is g

Rashmi Urdhwareshe, director of Automotive Research Association of India, spoke about different vehicle technologies that improve fuel efficiency through power train engineering.

It also allows use of surplus food grains for production of ethanol for blending with petrol with the approval of National Biofuel Coordination Committee, it said

The authorities have already installed the floating bases/boards in the reservoir and the solar panels will be installed by the end of this month.

Stanford scientists have developed a water-based battery that could provide a cheap way to store wind or solar energy, which can be fed back into the electric grid and redistributed on high demand.

The production of heat accounts for around one half of energy demand around the globe – the largest of all energy end uses. Heat demand is also significant in some of the hottest countries such as India where despite the climate it is still necessary for cooking, hot water and industry.

Technological innovation is crucial to enable progress in the transformation of the global energy system. However, policy makers need to refresh the priorities in such innovation to address new challenges, such as integrating high shares of renewable power and electrifying transport, industry and buildings.

The solar panels, installed on an area of around 2,000 ha on the water surface of Ujjani reservoir, is also expected to reduce evaporation of water and ultimately, reduce loss.
