India installed 7,346 MW of solar capacity in the calendar year (CY) 2019, a 12% decline year-over-year (YoY), compared to 8,338 MW in 2018, according to Mercom India Research’s newly released Q4 & Annual 2019 India Solar Market Update.

A near-term transition from coal appears inevitable, towards zero-coal generation by the mid-2030s. However, Poland could seek to delay such a transition, for example to develop new coal mines and extend coal generation into the 2050s.

Access to clean energy is a basic need that directly supports people’s livelihood. Yet more than 30 million Ugandans live without electricity. In the last decade, Uganda has experienced a phenomenal change in the adoption of digital finance and energy technologies.

By many measures, the world is still in the early stages of a deep and profound transformation in energy, and industrial and agricultural processes. The aim of that transition is to achieve new policy goals for modern societies – among them, deep cuts in carbon dioxide and other warming gases.

Investment in renewables must accelerate rapidly, with all available capital sources being activated to finance the transformation of the global energy system.

Many Arab countries, despite currently low to negligible renewable energy use, have set ambitious targets to increase their shares of renewables. Yet power-system planning is frequently constrained by cost implications and the lack of first-hand experience with renewables.

The world’s existing electricity systems were designed mainly for conventional, centralised power generation. Large plants have generated the bulk of electricity, frequently based on fossil fuels, and dispatched it to consumers based on relatively inflexible schedules.

The Wind and Hybrid Energy Policy, 2019 promotes developing new wind as well as hybrid projects, repowering of existing wind projects and hybridisation of existing wind and solar power plants. The policy will also promote blending of renewable power with thermal power, thus helping in reducing fuel consumption and carbon-emission.

With a view of promote decentralised use of solar energy and availability of affordable and reliable solar power in the rural areas, Ministry has formulated draft Guidelines for Development of Decentralised Solar Power Plants.
