This Puducherry Solar Energy Policy intends to create a framework that enables the development of solar energy in the Union Territory of Puducherry. The Union Territory of Puducherry comprises of four erstwhile French settlements viz. Puducherry, Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam, which are unconnected regions.

India will add 1,504.24 MW of solar power capacity by March 31, 2016 to take the total installed capacity in India to 6,752.45 MW, the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy said.

According to the new policy, electricity consumers of HPSEBL shall be eligible to install minimum 1 KW to maximum 5 MW capacity solar PV plants on their building roof top or its premises, which will be connected to grid with bidirectional meters, where in consumer will use solar generation for his consumption and only the drawl from grid to meet

MNRE has rolled out a scheme plans to set up 25 solar parks, each with a capacity of 500 MW and above; thereby targeting around 20000 MW of solar power installed capacity. These solar parks will be set up within in a span of 5 years commencing from 2014-15 and the solar projects may then come up as per demand and interest shown by developers.

Solar thermal sector has not found much support in the country despite having applications for industrial, residential and commercial purposes and should be promoted by the government, a Delhi-base

This is the 4th joint report of the European Solar Thermal Electricity Association (ESTELA) Greenpeace International and SolarPACES since 2003.

According to a CAG report that was tabled in the parliament on December 8, five years since the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government leased almost 3,404 acres of land - mostly in Jaisalmer, at pref

The report also noted that against the target of 500 MW of solar thermal projects, projects of 447.50 MW (approximately 90 per cent) had not been commissioned as of February 2015.

The present article discusses the application of a new technology using solar photovoltaic (PV) cell coupled with membrane distillation (MD) in the desalination of tap water. Salinity decreases the palatibility of water and causes long-term health issues. MD is the most promising technology to provide safe and clean drinking water to households and for other applications in small quantities. It consumes less energy than the existing commercial brackish water reverse osmosis (RO; pressure-driven) desalination technology (48%) used for the production of drinking water.

This draft solar policy released by Delhi government's advisory body Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) recommends generation of 1,000 MW solar power for the national capital by 2020. It is proposed to double it to 2 GW during the next five years (by 2025)
