This report presents a comprehensive overview of the opportunities for value creation from the deployment of large-scale solar and wind energy technologies. It contributes to bridging the existing knowledge gap on the topic and gives policy makers and other stakeholders evidence on economic value creation from the accelerated deployment.

The western state of Gujarat currently has the largest amount of solar capacity of any Indian state, with over 855 megawatts direct current (MWDC) among plants above 1 MWDC in size. Combined with over 3,240 megawatts (MW) of wind, variable generation renewables comprise nearly 18% of the electric-generating capacity in the state.

United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced today that the United States has requested World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement consultations with the Government of India concerning domestic content requirements in India’s national solar program.

This briefing paper explores the potential for existing and emerging solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies to deliver rapid transformation of our energy systems to limit the scale of future climate risks from fossil fuel use.

Ahmedabad: Researchers here claimed to have developed a simple way of making graphene-based solar cell, whose use may reduce the cost of producing solar power considerably.

Japanese Firm Proposes To Supply 13,000 Terawatts Of Electricity From Lunar Belt

Tokyo: A Japanese firm has proposed an out-of-this-world solution to our planet’s power woes — building a solar panel array around the Moon’s equator and sending the electricity it collects back to Earth. The project called LUNA RING is being developed by construction firm Shimizu Corporation.

As one of the eight missions under India’s National Action Plan for Climate Change (NAPCC), the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) was launched in January 2010 with the aim of accelerating India’s march toward grid parity in solar power.

The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission, in exercise of powers conferred under section 86 (1) (e) of the Electricity Act, 2003 has prepared a proposal on net metering & connectivity in respect of rooftop solar PV projects for inviting suggestions/objections from various stakeholders.

These guidelines by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy are to provide necessary policy framework and mechanism for selection and implementation of 750 MW Grid-connected solar PV power projects with Viability Gap Funding under Batch-1 Phase-II of JNNSM.
