In 2013, approximately 6.5 million people were already employed in the renewable energy industry worldwide, a new study by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) reveals.

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.

This is a case study on 100MW Rajasthan Sun Technique CSP plant, the first linear Fresnel CSP plant in India and the largest in the world. It finds that while Indian solar policy was essential to build this innovative plant it was not enough for India to deploy CSP plants at the desired level and speed.

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.

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 specific objective of the study is to assess the potential of India’s industries to set up a manufacturing base for production of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technology components and equipment. The study assesses competitive positioning and potential of Indian companies in the manufacturing of key CSP components.

This is draft of Odisha Solar Policy, 2013 which aims to promote use of solar energy in the state to support development and address the problem of energy security.

This paper investigates the effect of the Delhi Metro on air pollution within Delhi and finds strong evidence to show that it has resulted in reductions of two important vehicular emissions - nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide.

This documents is prepared based on draft guide lines issued by MNRE for selection of 750 MW New grid connected Solar Power projects Under JNNSM Phase-II, Batch-I and may undergo changes.

Photovoltaics is becoming increasingly inex­pensive. In contrast, the prices for electricity from conventional power plants are climb­ing. This is making the solar farm market segment progressively more lucrative for fi­nancially strong investors. Photovoltaics of­fers a profitable, long­term investment with comparatively low risk.
