Due to the decline in the upfront capital cost, the cost of generation of solar power generation plant has become competitive with many conventional power generation technologies.

This is the Draft Guidelines for Implementation of Scheme for setting up of 2000 MW Grid-connected Solar PV Power Projects under JNNSM, Batch-III-Tranche-I “State Specific VGF Scheme” .

These guidelines are for 3000 MW. MNRE will indicate the total quantity for various States based on response received from the States. The scope of these guidelines is limited to providing the necessary policy and operational framework for development of projects under the above mentioned “State Specific Bundling Scheme”.

Solar thermal systems (STS) offer vast potential for use in manufacturing. Yet widespread STS uptake requires policy-making to create the right conditions. This technology brief provides technical background, analyses the potential and barriers for market growth, and offers insights for policy makers on this key renewable energy technology.

Uncovering Patna’s solar potential is the first step towards positioning rooftop solar as a solution to the state’s power woes. This report provides the city’s stakeholders, data and insights needed to ensure the solar revolution in Patna.

Germany will loan more than 654 million euros ($796 million) for two solar-thermal power projects in Morocco that are among the world’s largest.

The National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) has carried out an exercise of calculating the State wise solar potential in the country. The calculation have been made taking data from Census 2011. The calculation have also taken into consideration data from India Waste Land Atlas 2010, Ministry of Rural Development.

The National Solar Mission (NSM) launched in January 2010 is a major initiative of the GoI with active participation from States to promote utilization of solar energy to supplement the country’s energy needs.

The Rajasthan Government announced the new "Solar Energy Policy-2014" paving its way towards the establishment of solar capacity of 25000 MW in the state. The key motive of the policy is to create a conductive environment for the investors and also to ensure continuous power supply in rural and urban area.

Life-cycle assessments commonly used to analyze the environmental costs and benefits of climate-mitigation options are usually static in nature and address individual power plants. Our paper presents, to our knowledge, the first life-cycle assessment of the large-scale implementation of climate-mitigation technologies, addressing the feedback of the electricity system onto itself and using scenario-consistent assumptions of technical improvements in key energy and material production technologies.
