According to state government and industry sources, wind power generation has touched an almost all-time high of 2,800 Mw.

This year’s Renewables 2018 Global Status Report GSR reveals two realities: one in which a revolution in the power sector is driving rapid change towards a renewable energy future, and another in which the overall transition is not advancing with the speed needed.

CHENNAI: Tangedco harnessed 13,000 million units of wind energy and 2,905 million units of solar energy in 2017-18. Tamil Nadu is the only state to have used so much of green energy last year.

State-run Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) is targeting to increase the exposure to the renewable energy segment in its total loan book to 4-5 per cent by 2022, a top company official said.

Across the world, change is accelerating in power systems driven by the advent of low-cost, abundant wind and solar energy, the rise of distributed energy resources and increasing digitalization. These factors are leading to a structural shift in the way power systems are best planned and operated.

Gridco is now purchasing 138 Mw of solar to meet its requirement which includes 63 Mw installed within the state

In their petition, the villagers argued that the Tata Mundra Power Plant has failed to comply with international environmental standards. This has resulted in devastation of local environment.

Currently, 34 power plants with capacity of about 40,000 MW and outstanding debts of Rs 1.74 lakh crore are stressed.

The government today said it has finalised the methodology for rationalisation of coal linkages for independent power producers (IPP).
