A Profile of Non-Conventional Energy Sources in India

‡ Energy that comes from natural resources. . ‡ 19% of electricity generated from Renewable sources.Introduction ‡ Non-Conventional Energy: Renewable Energy or Alternative Energy.

Why is there a need for Renewable Energy? ‡ Electricity Generation. ‡ Depleting Coal Reserves. ‡ Oil Shortages. ‡ Minimum pollution .

Energy Consumption Patterns in India .

Sources of Renewable Energy Listed are the primary energy sources that can be used to overcome the impending Energy crisis in the short run if not in the long term ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Solar Power Wind Power Tidal Power Geothermal Energy Hydroelectric Power .

.Solar Power ‡ Harnessing the heat or light of the sun. ‡ CSP captures heat from sun and turns into electricity. ‡ PV capture light and turn it into electricity. ‡ Most readily available energy. ‡ Captured by Photovoltaics (PV) or Concentrated Solar Power (CSP).

. ‡ MNRE provides subsidies. ‡ Large expansion expected in next 5 years. ‡ Special areas set aside for solar power.Solar Power in India ‡ Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission.

small or large scale.Wind Power ‡ Conversion of Wind Energy into Electricity ‡ Cleanest Energy ‡ Energy trapped using turbines ‡ Can be micro. .

‡ 6% of India s Total Installed Power Capacity ‡ Largest Generating Capacity: Tamil Nadu (6007 MW) .550 MW.Wind Power in India ‡ Installed wind capacity in India is 14.

Tidal Power ‡ Obtained from the energy of tides ‡ More stable than solar or wind energy ‡ Costly to set-up. . inexpensive to maintain.

. ‡ 5 percent of India s energy demands can be met through tidal power.Tidal Power in India ‡ Asia s first Tidal Power planned by the year 2013 in Gujarat. ‡ Generation capacity expected to be over 200 MW.

. ‡ Dry Steam Plants ‡ Flash Steam Plants ‡ Binary Cycle Power Plants ‡ Can have environmental impacts.Geothermal Energy ‡ Energy generated and stored in the earth. ‡ Turbines run due to steam pressure.

Hydroelectric Power ‡ Electricity generated by Hydropower. ‡ Uses potential energy of dammed water. ‡ Other method: Run-of-the-river .

Hydroelectric Power in India ‡ Worlds 7th largest producer ‡ Total Annual production: 115.6 GW .6 TWh ‡ Total Capacity: 33.

Major Companies in Renewable Energy in India ‡ Suzlon ‡ Windmade ‡ Moser Baer Solar ‡ Adani Power Limited ‡ Jaiprakash Hydro-Power Limited .

What will work in India? ‡ Wind Energy: most effective. ‡ Hydroelectric: Massive scope for expansion. . ‡ Solar Energy expected to grow over 5 years. ‡ Tidal Energy: first plant in 2013.
