Producing as much energy as it consumes by using geothermal cooling systems and solar energy, eastern India’s first net-zero energy building will come up at Bhubaneswar next year.

Tata Power plans to keep up with its annual investment of Rs 1,500 crore in renewable energy, even as the company’s networth is being eroded by its flagship coal-based project in Mundra.

NTPC has signed an initial agreement with the Geological Survey of India to set up a geothermal power project at Tattapani in Chhattisgarh.

This new study by WWF-India and TERI examines the possibility of a near 100% Renewable Energy Scenario (REN) for India by the middle of the century against a reference scenario in which the economy is likely to be dependent primarily on fossil fuels - coal, oil and gas.

The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), a wing of WWF-India, released a compendium on renewable energy here on Thursday.

Titled ‘Renewable Energy beyond Electricity’, the study focuses on innovative renewable energy applications beyond power-generation.

An awareness of the potential of renewables beyond power-generation, particularly for heating, cooling, cooking and mechanical applications would greatly enhance their acceptance amongst the public, according to a report released by WWF-India and the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) at WWF-India, New Delhi.

Poland could halve its demand for coal by 2030 with a shift to renewable energies that would end its image as a laggard in European Union efforts to slow climate change, a study showed on Friday.
