MP Govt slashes MNRE on GBS!!

 

A group of MPs today slammed the "dismal budgetary" allocation to New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) ministry in the interim budget saying it puts a serious question on the implementation of existing and planned renewable energy programmes. 

"There is a significant reduction in the Gross Budgetary Support (GBS) allocated to MNRE this year, as compared to last year, putting a serious question on the implementation of existing and planned renewable energy programmes," Climate, a cross party network of MPs working to promote renewable energy in  said. 

The statement said that MNRE this year has received an allocation of only Rs 441 crores, which is less than one third of the allocation in the previous financial year which was Rs 1,521 crores. 

"This dismal budgetary allocation is a reflection of a lack of balanced approach by the government. While much focus is being given to solar, growth of other technologies like wind and biomass can get jeopardised," Baishnab Parida a Climate Parliament MP said. 

The MPs highlighted that irrespective of the high allocation in the budget, the MNRE in actual just received nearly 426.5 crores as budgetary support (GBS) during the last year. 

"This could also negatively impact the timely disbursements of capital subsidies under the different ministry schemes. It needs to be ensured that this decreased budget does not affect the implementation of the existing schemes, especially the ones operating in rural areas," Parida said. 

The budget included positive provisions for solar  but on the whole it has been unsatisfactory in terms of overall renewable energy promotion in country, the statement said. 

Raising questions about the loss in focus of the National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF), the Climate Parliament also said that using the fund as source for meeting the budgetary deficits of MNRE "does not seem suitable". more...

Rays power infra the  largest private solar park owner in the country has launched a 50MW solar park in MP

- In a bid to revolutionize the solar power sector, Rays Power Infra, the largest private solar park owner in the country, has announced the launch of solar park in the state of Madhya Pradesh.The announcement was made at the recently held Solar Development Summit in Bhopal in which Mr. Ketan Mehta from Rays Power Infra was a key speaker.

The development of solar energy, which is a renewable and sustainable source of energy, will have long-term impact on the state's economy. Madhya Pradesh is blessed with plenty of sunshine and vast barren lands, and the establishment of a solar park will hugely benefit the state as businesses will be able to leverage world-class facilities with ready-to-move infrastructure.

The launch of the 50 MW solar park is significant as it will contribute towards the state's power generation capacity. More importantly, the initiative will set new benchmarks in generating power in a sustainable manner.

Rays Power Infra has already popularized the concept of solar parks in Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh by offering the lowest cost of electricity. Solar parks have become tremendously successful benefitting large industrial houses and contributing substantially to the local economy.more...

 *  India's largest Solar plant launched by narendra modi :Biggest News

 

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi launched a 130-MW solar power plant at Bhagwanpur in Neemuch, about 400 km from here, on Wednesday. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was present.The Welspun Solar MP project, the largest solar power plant in India set up at a cost of Rs. 1,100 crore on 305 hectares of land, will supply power at Rs. 8.05 a kWh. 

Calling it a saffron revolution, Mr. Modi said: “We have already seen the green and the white revolutions; soon, we are going to see a saffron revolution in the country ... The sun was there even during the time when there was a Congress Chief Minister. But the Congress never thought of using it to develop solar energy, and it was Chouhan who used it for energy production.” Hitting out at Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh, he said, “During his regime [as Chief Minister], many power plants were closed down because of which we have been pushed into the dark ages.” 

Mr. Chouhan alleged that the Centre was cheating Madhya Pradesh. “Wait for Narendra Modi to become Prime Minister and farmers will get their due,” he said. The inauguration of the plant comes a day after the former Deputy Prime Minister L.K. Advani launched the linking of the Narmada and the Kshipra rivers in Ujjain. Mr. Modi’s absence from the programme and publicity materials raised questions within party circles. The exclusion of Satyanarayan Jatiya, Rajya Sabha member, who was instrumental in getting the waters of the Narmada to Malwa, also raised eyebrows. In the past two days, the State has seen a flurry of inaugurations of projects, including the opening of the Betul-Nagpur link in Chhindwara on Tuesday by Union Ministers Kamal Nath and Oscar Fernandes and flagging off an express train from Gwalior to Pune by Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Wednesday.more..

*INDIA TO ACHIEVE ENERGY INDEPENDENCE BY 2030!!??

India wants to achieve energy independence by 2030. Three recent developments show how far it is from this laudable goal.

Exhibit 1: One of the stories that emerged during the visit last week by US secretary of state John Kerry was intriguing. The US offered priority access to its shale gas output as long as India agreed to cut oil imports from Iran, a country that the US is trying to isolate.Exhibit 2: A recent Bloomberg report highlighted how India’s coal-fired power plants burnt up the scarce resource at their fastest pace in 31 years.  Exhibit 3, mis-pricing of energy resources at both production and consumption ends. A good example of this is how the government has dealt with the pricing of natural gas.MORE.. -

*NEW FUND TO REDUCE COSTS FOR SOLAR POWER PROJECTS 

A demand for the creation of a separate window under the National Clean Energy Fund (NCEF) has been made by the industry. It may provide a boost to the country’s domestic solar energy projects by providing easy access to finance for such clean energy technology, the industry has stated in a FICCI white paper.The paper on reducing the cost of finance for solar energy projects through NCEF has been submitted to the government for consideration.

The Fund was announced in the budget 2011-12 and is expected to be a step for funding research and innovative projects in clean energy technology. The white paper in essence, suggests innovative models for sharing and distribution of risk and cost of financing through NCEF as the cost of financing from the domestic Financial Institutions is high. MORE..

The ministry is gradually running out of funds allocated for giving  subsidies , this is a fact .But the advise by FICCI is not germane as it was already commented by  joint secretary  Tarun Kapoor in RENERGY 2013 in chennai  "We are currently getting part of the funds used for subsidy from the National Clean Energy Fund and we are talking to them for more funds," he added.

*MP TO REACH 3.3GW BY JUNE 2015!!!!

BHOPAL: Striving for a place under the sun - Madhya Pradesh could outdo other states in renewable energy sector, government officials claimed on Thursday.

The project will be commissioned in June this year.MORE.

3.3 GW by 2015 is almost impractical.

It is over ambitious. However, if MP does it, it will be great and many states will follow suit.

The biggest concern for MP is grid connectivity. Will this power be of any use without proper Grid connectivity!?

 FARMERS IN MP WILL GET POWER FOR 10HRS/DAY WITH FLAT RATE OF RS1200/YEAR!!!!

Farmers in Madhya Pradesh will get power for agricultural purposes by paying a flat rate of Rs 1,200 a year, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced today. "There will be no meter reading on connections installed inside agricultural wells and farmers would get power supply for 10-hour a day instead of 8 hours," Chouhan said while addressing farmers and party workers at "Vikas Sammelan" held at Sanver, 30 kms from here. MORE..

10 hours of power for  30 days at Rs 100 !!   While it is good for the forming community, it can result in rich farmers using a lot of power. Maharashtra charges Rs 1 per unit for the farmers and still the defaulters are more than 50%. Tamilnadu gives it free.   Power to the farmers is a political issue.



*MADHYA PRADESH POWER SURPLUS -FOR WHOM? 

He is riding high on the development mantra, but Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's promise of 24X7 power supply has already hit a snag. Three weeks after the grand launch of the Atal Jyoti Abhiyaan in Bhopal, day-long power supply remains a dream for most villages. SOURCE  

The scheme was implemented to serve 50,000 villages in madhya Pradesh by may. But the reality check is that  they get only 12-14hrs of power each day. 24X7 power supply a myth!!

 

 *MADHYA PRADESH POWER SURPLUS!!!! 

BHOPAL: Once regarded a 'bimaru' state, Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday morning gave an electric shock. While other states in the country are grappling with an increasing demand in electricity and falling generation leading to an energy-crisis situation, the state government on Tuesday claimed it has power surplus selling an average 100 lakh units of electricity to neighbouring states every day.SOURCE

 

 It is very interesting to see, how will it affect the solar industry. How does the goverment manage its solar policy.

STATES LIKE RAJASTHAN , MAHARASHTRA AND MADHYA PRADESH ARE LEADING IN REC MECHANISM

 

REC based Solar PV Accredited Capacity

(23.04.2013)

 

 

 

Third Party PPA is a power purchase agreement which a developer can use and claim REC. Third party PPA rec is normally got by goverment authorised power trading companies. Companies that set up large solar plants of size 10MW and above, can approach these comapnies to avail the 3rd party PPA for their solar project in madhya pradesh.The current third party PPA for solar power doing the rounds in madhya pradesh is Rs 4.50 - 5 per unit with 5%  escalation once or twice a year. This  third party PPA is available for 5 and 10 years tenure. Companies that avail 3rd Party PPA  for thier solar project in madhya Pradesh can also avail REC benefits.

 

List of inter-State trading licensees or power trading trading companies :

These companies are eligible to provide third part PPA  . Third party PPA plus REC route provides probably the best revenue model  among the other sources of revenue in Solar energy power generation.Companies in madhya pradesh desirous of monetizing, having strong balance sheets and are capable of investing in large projects like 15MW and above can reach out to them to get a third party PPA.

 APPC plus REC

 

The APPC price is 2.05per unit  .Adding APPC plus REC it works out to be rupees 11.35( REC 9.30).Appc prices will go up next year by more than 5%. It will not be a surprise that if appc price  reach Rs 3. This estimate of Rs 3 is based on a) MP Govt is planning to buy 1000MW or more solar power at Rs 6.49 per unit.b) MP GOVT has ordered a purchase of 450MW OF POWER AT RS 12.50 per unit for the next six months.

   An official from MPERC on probing accepted that APPC can go upto Rs 6 in the next two or three years.

 

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has  released (apr 2013) a second set of (draft) amendments to their REC guidelines. 

  • REC and Reverse Bidding/Tendering – Projects which have signed a PPA through any state tendering mechanisms (reverse bidding) would be ineligible for procuring RECs. The objective of REC is to fund the gap between APPC and the viability.
  • APPC –  The guidelines now clarify that the PPA would have to be signed at a price equal to the APPC price which was prevelant the previous year.
  • Electricity duty and captive generators -  CERC has now proposed to remove the electricity duty exemption as a disqualification criterion as the quantum of contribution to final tariff is quite miniscule. The other criteria for disqualification such as concessional wheeling/banking would still be in force.

 

  • Time period for availing RECs – current regulations state that there is a three month time window after approval from the SLDC to get the required clearance from the central agency. However since the receipt of information from the SLDC sometimes takes more than three months to reach the central agency, it has been proposed to extend the window to six months. In addition to this, currently the application for receipt of the certificates can be made only on the 1st and 15th of each month. This has been revised to the 10th, 20th and last day of each month.
  • No cap on minimum capacity – previously, it was proposed that RE power plants with a capacity of 250 kW and above would only be eligible for certificates under the REC mechanism (subject to approval by MNRE) even though the CERC guidelines do not dictate a minimum requirement. CERC has clarified that there is no minimum capacity and that ANY RE generator would be eligible to claim REC provided they satisfy the prescribed criteria.
  • Retention of RECs –  CERC has now clarified that all RECs generated through a RE captive power plant can be retained by the developer (to fulfill their obligations) thereby reducing the overheads which is subject to verification by the SNA.
  • Shelf-life of RECs – as reported earlier, RECs would now have a shelf-life of two years as opposed to one year and the regulations would be amended accordingly.
  • Date of issuance – any powerplant setup under the REC mechanism would be eligible for RECs from the date of commercial operation or from the date of registration of such plant by the Central Agency whichever is later.

the RECs will lapse.

 

 

 

 ======================================================================================================

 

 

 

*What is the space / area / land required for the plant?

 

 

 

 Generally, it is assumed at 3.5 to 4acres for crystalline silicon (c-Si) technology and 6 to 7 acres per MW for thin film solar (a-Si or CdTe) technology. In reality, it depends on other parameters like cost of land, Ground Coverage
Ratio (GCR)(to avoid inter array shading, GCR can be 0.45 to 0.65 and 
generation will vary based on GCR) and choice of sun tracking 
systems (with sun trackers the land required will be about 6acres
per MW for crystalline solar modules).

 

 Which are the ideal states for setting up of solar power projects?

 

 Hot destinations are Rajasthan, Gujarat and MH, MP, Andhra, Karnataka,
Tamil Nadu as far as solar radiation is concerned. Presently, only 
Andhra, Rajasthan and Gujarat have a clear policy and guidelines on the procedures for 
setting up solar power projects. Other states may also initiate the policy 
and procedures soon now that Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission has been 
launched by Government of India.

 

 Are Banks interested in financing solar power projects?

 

 The Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) works out to an average of 1.49
which is considered quite acceptable to commercial banks for sanction of loan. 
The maximum debt that is permitted as per CERC norms is 70% and most 
banks should be find this acceptable based on the financial strength and 
net worth of the company / promoters. The present policy driven by the
National Solar Mission and PPA for 25 years with a central PSU like NTPC's 
subsidiary should provide adequate confidence to Banker to finance solar
power projects.

 

 

IDEAL LAND

Lands for solar power generation projects in madhya pradesh - ideal lands ?

 

1 mw of solar power plant will need about 5 acres of land

Agriculutural lands are not allowed to put up a solar generation plant

Non agricultural lands, non cultivable lands, barren lands, puramboke lands etc are ok

Rocky lands are not ideal for solar power generation 

Many times soil testing of the land is done before deciding the feasibility

Ideally the land has to be very close to a substation. 11 kva, 33 kva, 66 kva, 132 kva, etc

For a 1 mw plant 11 kva is ok. 

For each km the substation is away from your land, one has to incur about Rs 10 /12 lakhs for

laying the transmission lines. Better than that is to buy up the land between your land and the 

substation.

If there is some land between your land and the substation, there will ROW ie right of way 

issues.

Download google earth and note the longitude and latitude of your land. 

If you inform the above information a good Consultant will be able to assess the potential 

number of units that can be produced per annum

With the above information, it is possible to make the feasibility report for 

the state nodal agencies, as well as detailed project report for the banks for solar 

power generation business.

 

==================================================================================

 

==================================================================================

 

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

At times some land brokers buy agricultural land and sell and want to sell it of as agricultural land itself to avoid short term capital gains tax. It is adivisable for the potenial developers to buy the converted land by sharing the short term capital gains tax with land broker.

 


 MODES OF ACQUIRING LAND FOR SOLAR POWER GENERATION

 Got Land for Solar power generation !!

Those of you who have large acres of non cultivable lands in madhya State near substations and do not have the resources to develop a solar power plant, can register their lands here for 

a. out right sale, b. lease for 26 years c. partnership with the power plant and d. any other suggestion from the land owner

We need the following information. Wherever u dont know the information, pl write 
'I dont know'

Exact location of the land: Address of land including district and taluk, 

Total area in acres

Boundaries marked in google map or in google earth: Mark your land in 
google map/ google earth and email along with this form.

Right of way. ( ROW)*

Proof  of its ownership. 

Name, address including district and taluk,  mobile no

DNI of the location: If you dont know, send us the longitude and latitude of the lands
( If you dont know, how to get this, say : I dont know)

Type of the land in gov records. 

  • **Agricultural/ non agricultural/ barren/ rocky/industrial/ waste/ dry/ anyother specify
  • KVA rating of substation nearby and distance.
  • Capacity available in the substation
  • List of solar projects in the neighbourhood, if you know.
  • Rate  per acre. ie current market price of land available nearby, adjoining your land
  • Expected sale  price : minimum price expected per acre.
  • Open for partnership:Open for leasing for 26 years ? Yes / No
  • Are there lands available nearby : how many acres: how much do these lands cost

    * ROW - if you have direct access to the substation, it is fine. But if electricity produced has to go thru the neighbouring lands, that means 
    you have a ROW issue.

    ** 
    Agricultural lands are not permitted to set up a solar plant, even if there is  no water and no agriculture has been done for years.

If you are going to convert, your land from agricultural land to any other, say so.

Solar Power Project Financing

Various options available for getting funding for your Solar Power projects are,

1) Asset / Collateral  based Funding
2) Balance Sheet based Funding
3) Project   Funding


1) Asset Based Funding: Individuals and Companies
In asset based funding the lender provides loan for  solar power plants based on valuation of the assets that your company has or you  have and that you can offer as collateral security for the loan.

You can even get 100 % funding depending upon the value of the collaterals.

Normally for most projects, the banks may demand 30 % equity and loan can be given for 70%.

Some banks in Hyderabad , demand 35 % equity. But if the value of the collateral is high, it can be as said before, 100 % loan..

Many banks ask for Urban property as collateral. It is not actually necessary. Once the banks get used to the performance of solar power generation plants, they will minimise the need for collaterals.

Already many  banks are accepting less than 70 % of collaterals when the projects are pledged.

2) Balance Sheet Based Funding: Companies only
The profit that your company has made in the last three years. The reserves and surplus it has etc will be taken into account and the bank can then fund.

Companies that can avail Accelerated Depreciation  for solar power generation will find it easier to avail loans and lower rates.

Companies should note that it is not a fixed rate of interest. Good rapport based on good performance in the past can bring the interest percentage down.

3)Project Funding: Companies and Individuals
 The projected cash flow of the project or more specifically the PPA will determine  the  decision to fund.  Payment security is important.
Many of these types of funding can be got from India as well as from abroad.

With hedging the cost of international funds also tend towards 11% . Indian banks are now getting closer to 12.5 % and if the asset / balance sheet / ppa are sound one could look at lower rate of interest.

The project cash flow is much better in companies that can avail accelerated depreciation for solar power generation. 

COMMISSION IN GETTING BANK LOAN.

 

There are many Chartered Accountants who help individuals form a company and they also act as agents to get bank loans.

Commission in getting bank loan is approximately  1- 2% at present in Madhya Pradesh.

These agents normally help put the loan application for solar power generation plant and submit with two to three banks. This helps them get the best rate possible.

For companies, this may not be the ideal route, as they themselves will have a finance

/accounts department with access to several banks. Whereas for individuals, it makes more sense to go thru such chartered accountants who also help get loans, than trying it on their own.

Individuals, can try on their own, if they have 30% or more equity and or good collaterals. They can then go to more than one bank and try to get the best rate of interest.

2) Open a bank account in the new company name if you are an individual . Old name will do if you intend running the solar power generation in the old company’s name.

3) Acquire adequate  land on your company name for setting up Solar Power Project. Create provision for evacuation or atleast get flow study done.

3) Deposit 10% of the project cost in the bank account on company name and take proof of funds from the bank
4) GET Accredition from local NLDC. GET “ flow study “ approval from Transco. Prepare DPR

5) PPA copy to be there in the DPR or bank loan application.  Get permission to feed power to the T&D network

Bank loan application to have 

1) Proof of Land Ownership , patta, unencumberance certificate
2) DPR,
3) PPA / 
4) Company incorporation certificate by an auditor
5)  Bank Balance in the new bank account.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Equity funding: This is probably the best way to fund and manage a solar power project. Not many developers will have their own funds. 

Pre financing by EPC companies: This can be done by EPCs.But mostly most EPCs operate on tight budgets. The profits in EPC business is not much and hence to expect funding from them is not right.  

Suppliers credit : Normally given by module manufacturers from usa and china to large customers, it is not equity funding, but it helps a lot.  It is also possible to get such credits from  Inverter makers and Tracking systems makers. That is in case you are going for a tracking system.  Especially those tracking systems that claim over 25 % increase in efficiency can afford to give some credit as they can recover their money from the increased power generated. Many of these companies are funder by VCs and may have provision to give suppliers credit.  

Non-recourse project financing 

This is the preferred financing structure, wherein the lending institutions would provide debt to a special purpose vehicle set-up for the project and would have a lien on the project’s cash-flows. However as this structure does not provide recourse to the developer’s balance sheet, lending institutions require rock-solid agreements for revenues from the projects. The above structure gives an option for obtaining non-recourse Project Financing. However the developer needs to ensure that the following are in place to make the

lending institutions comfortable Performance – Contractual guarantees from technology providers for the long-term performance of the plant revenues – Long-term power purchase agreements with credible consumers, i.e. direct power sale to the consumer. As discussed above, the current structure of the JNNSM PPA may not be bankable due to the credibility of many states. The government has been contemplating a tri-partite agreement between the developer, state discom and the Reserve Bank of India to ensure the PPAs bankability, however this is not confirmed yet.

 RenewableEnergy Certificate – developers can forego the preferential tariff and trade the RECs on the energy exchange. However the market is in its nascent stage and depends on the state’s renewable purchase obligations.

 Project viability – In addition to the above, developers must convince lenders that projects are viable and have the capability of repaying debt without outside assistance. This could mean that the project has to fund a Debt-Service-Reserve-Account in addition to having healthy

Debt-ServiceCoverage-Ratios.

ü  Detailed information about various types of loans and related products on offer by U.S. Ex-Im bank for renewable energy (solar) project developers

Borrowing from the US EXIM bank has certain limitations for projects.  

 The total consideration of project cost for debt can only be a maximum of 30% over and above the cost of imports from the US. As this financing option is usually based on module imports and prices for modules account for only around 40% of the total project cost, the developer will need to club a US EXIM loan with another source of finance, thereby potentially increasing the cost of procuring debt.    The timelines for financial closure for projects under different policies in India range from six to eight months. TUS EXIM bank can take between six to nine months to process loan requests. Developers aiming for a US EXIM loan usually have to arrange for alternative bridge financing  The long processing time is attributed mostly to the lengthy legal, technical and financial due diligence undertaken by the bank. The due diligence  increases transaction costs.   US EXIM financing is ideal for projects of size 10 MW and above. Only  such projects can bear the high transaction costs. Moreover, to qualify for US EXIM financing, the project developer must import modules and in some cases other equipment from the US.        

Important International  export  credit agencies/export insurance agencies are: Euler Hermes Kreditversicherungs-AG (Germany), China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation (China), Nippon Export and Investment Insurance (Japan), Korea Trade Insurance Corporation (South Korea), Swiss Export Risk Insurance (Switzerland), Export Finance and Insurance Corporation (Australia), OesterreichischeKontrollbank AG (Austria), Export-Import Bank of Malaysia Berhad, (Malaysia), Export Development Canada (Canada), Hong Kong Export Credit Insurance Corporation (Hong Kong).

 

 

Foreign funding – Large project developers can tap international banks to get

lower rates of finance. However, hedging can put a substantial dent in the rate differential and only someone ready to take the currency risk should resort to this option.

The idea of collecting large number of small projects and approaching exim bank or LIbor , doesnt make much sense. it can probably operate as suppliers credit. At best.

SBICAPS   SBI Capital Markets (SBICAPS)  

finances solar projects.  Foreign banks in general are  open to lending to Indian investment banks for a portfolio of similar projects. This debt is then passed on to the developers with a margin and a hedging charge. The actual lending to the developer takes place based on RBI guidelines.

SBICAPS has been involved with the financing of projects developed by Tata Power Co., Kiran Energy, Sunborne, Alex Astral and Acme Tele Power.

There are other investment banks operating in India include the

Bank of America,

Barclays Capital,

BNP Paribas,

Lazard,

Credit Suisse,        

 

  Export credit agencies / International investment cum insurance agencies     US EXIM 0.7% (LIBOR27) 3.5%  (Margin) 6.5% (Hedging) = 10.7% Loan Up to 80�sed on value of imports 9 – 16 years duration    Approx. 1.45  DSCR  

  

        OPIC   The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC)is the U.S. government’s development finance institution.  OPIC  supports solar in India by providing  financing, guarantees, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds.  OPIC  has committed  Rs 55 billion  to the renewables sector globally last year and nearly one-quarter of it had been earmarked for India.  OPIC is  involved in financing of projects by Azure Power and Sun Edison in India.

 

  IREDA   The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) is a development funding institution but operates as a NBFC under the administrative control of MNRE for providing term loans for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects.

 

IREDA has  a Rs 13 billion  of credit from KfW for a broad mandate of promoting renewable power in India but has not been particularly active in financing utility scale solar projects till date. IREDA also provides loans to other banks at interest rates as low as 2-5% so as to incentivize them to finance renewable projects. Your bank manager can work with IREDA to get low cost funding. It is a less known and less used route.    

 

 

ADB   ADB  provides financing support under the India Solar Generation Guarantee Facility (ISGGF), under its Asia Solar Energy Initiative (ASEI) . Apart from providing debt as per ADB’s LIBOR-based lending facility towards solar transmission infrastructure in Gujarat, ADB also considers direct financing and/or guarantees for projects greater than 25 MW. Reliance Power’s 100 MW CSP plant has been partially financed with both debt and equity participation by ADB. Under ISGGF, ADB provides partial credit guarantees (PCGs) available to local and foreign commercial banks that finance private sector solar power plants in the country. This guarantee covers up to 50% of the payment default risk on bank loans made to project developers. Currently, two commercial banks have been approved by ADB as eligible partner banks: L&T Infrastructure Finance Company Limited (India) and the NorddeutscheLandesbank (abbreviated Nord/LB, Germany). ADB aims to support 3 GW of solar power capacity in developing member countries by May 2013.

 

          

KfW and DEG   Germany’s KfW and DEG are also invest in  the Indian solar market. KfW is involved in lending to a 125 MW project by Mahagenco in Maharashtra and DEG has provided Rs 6.80cr  risk capital in the form of Compulsory Convertible Debentures (CCDs) to Azure Power     Other active sources for funds Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), U.K Department for International Development Cooperation (DFID), Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Investmet Bank (EIB) and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB)

 

 

 

 Indian banks are being very conservative, insisting on 1.2-1.3 DSC ratio. For project economics to look more attractive to developers, DSC ratios should be at a minimum of 1.1-1.15. At this rate, the attractiveness of several projects begins to change substantially.

 

L&T Infrastructure Finance Company (subsidiary of L&T Financing Holdings),

 Power Finance Corporation (PFC), 

 Mahindra Finance, 

IDFC, 

 IL&FS, 

SBI Capital Markets and 

 Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA). 

US EXIM bank an  active Export Credit Agency (ECA). IFC,

 has provided financing for projects by developers such as Green Infra, Mahindra Solar, Azure Power and SunEdison India. 

ADB provides financing support under the India Solar Generation Guarantee Facility (ISGGF), under its Asia Solar Energy Initiative (ASEI) to promote the development of solar energy in India. Currently, two commercial banks have been approved by ADB as eligible partners: L&T Infrastructure Finance Company Limited (India) and the Norddeutsche Landesbank (abbreviated Nord/LB, Germany).

SEVEN STEPS TO DESIGNING

 

A SOLAR CAPTIVE POWER PLANT FOR A FACTORY

 

 There are seven steps involved in designing a successful captive solar PV installation 

 

  • Scoping of the project
  • Calculating the amount of solar energy available
  • Surveying the site
  • Calculating the amount of energy needed
  • Sizing the solar system
  • Component selection and costing
  • Detailed design

 

Step 1 –SCOPING THE PROJECT

 

As with any project, you need to know what you want to achieve. This basically involves detailing what you want from the captive PV installation, once installed. Do you want it to completely provide your day time electricity usage? Or do you want it to support a part of your usage? To start with, the scope of the project can be simple and later as we progress we can flesh it out to suit the requirements.

 

Defining the scope is in fact the most important step because once the basic scope is wrong, we might not be able to get the system do, what we exactly want it to do.

 

Step2 - CALCULATING THE SOLAR POWER AVAILABLE

 

Solar insolation is the amount of electromagnetic energy (solar radiation) incident on the surface of the earth. Basically that means how much sunlight is shining down on the area under consideration.

 

The values are generally expressed in kWh/m2/day. This is the amount of solar energy that strikes a square metre of the earth's surface in a single day. Of course this value is averaged to account for differences in the days' length. There are several units that are used throughout the world.

 

By knowing the insolation levels of a particular region one can determine the number of PV modules that are required. An area with poor insolation levels will need a larger number of PV modules than an area with high insolation levels. Once the region’s insolation level is known, one can more accurately calculate collector size and energy output.

 

The typical thumbrule that is used for the amount of electricity that solar PV can produce is as follows: On average, 1 W of solar PV, at current crystalline silicon panel efficiencies, can produce about 4 Wh of electricity per day. This is however only an average estimate and based on the location, this could be a bit lower or higher than the average.

 

Step 3 – SURVEYING THE SITE

 

A site survey basically consists of a brief interview with the developer to get a feel for their electricity needs and a physical inspection of the proposed array site to see if it is suitable for solar. When a qualified photovoltaic design professional visits a potential solar site, he or she has many things to watch out for.

 

Primarily, they will be checking the roof's orientation (azimuth) and solar access. Orientation refers to the direction the roof faces - directly south is ideal, with some leeway to the Southwest or Southeast.

 

Solar access quantifies the percentage of time when the proposed array location will be receiving the full unshaded power of the sun during different days of the year. A shady roof might disqualify a site from receiving incentive money from the state, and is not a responsible choice for solar anyway. There are ways to get around shade issues - either by looking at alternate sites, trimming or removing trees, or by using micro-inverters in the system design rather than one large central inverter.

 

Step 4 - CALCULATING THE AMOUNT OF ENERGY NEEDED

 

The next big task for any photovoltaic system designer is to determine the system load. This load estimate is one of the key factors in the design and cost of the stand-alone PV system.

 

A simple way to determine the approximate ceiling for the solar PV system capacity for all electricity needs is as follows:

 

1.  Find out your total monthly electricity consumption. Let’s say it is 100000 kWh

 

2.  Divide it by 30 to get an approximate daily consumption. In the example, it is about 3300 kWh.

 

3.  Using the thumb rule that 1 W of solar PV can approximately produce 4 Wh of electricity per day, you can determine the approximate maximum solar PV capacity you will require to power all your systems using solar PV. In this case, if the total daily consumption of electricity is 3300 kWh, you will require a maximum of 3300/4 = 825 kW.

 

 4.  It is however very unlikely that you would require such a high capacity for solar PV as you will need solar PV primarily as a backup power source, perhaps as a replacement for diesel based power generation.

 

 Ceiling for the solar PV required for complete diesel replacement

 

 In most cases, you will be using solar only as a backup power source to replace diesel based power production.

 

6.  One simple way to determine the amount of solar PV for this purpose is to determine the total amount of electricity you produce using diesel every month. In the example provided, out of the 100000 kWh of total electricity you consume every month, let’s say 10% or 10000 kWh is generated from diesel gensets. This provides you the ceiling for the solar PV system capacity for complete diesel replacement. In this case, it is 82.5 kW.

 

 7. As a thumb rule, one litre of diesel produces 4 kWh, so you can also compute the above with the data for the amount of diesel used every month.

 

 While estimating the load, the designer should consider energy conserving substitutes for items that are used often. Identifying large and/or variable loads and determining if they can be eliminated or changed to operate from another power source will save cost. 

 

 Step 5 – SIZING THE SYSTEM

 

 From the results obtained in step 2 and step 4, we can determine the size of the solar system that will be needed to power the site. The necessary systems involved in the setting up of captive power plants are:

 

 1)      Array(collection of solar PV modules)

 

 2)      Charge controllers

 

 3)      Batteries

 

 4)      Inverters

 

 5)      Mounting systems

 

 Note: The exact procedure for sizing of a solar system has to begin with calculating the amphere hour (Ah) of each load under consideration. Without knowing this it is impossible to size the PV system.

 

 PV array sizing – Array sizing is determined by taking into account the daily energy requirement (in Kilowatt hours) and average daily peak sunshine hours in the design month.

 

 No part of a PV array can be shaded. The shading of small portions of a PV module may greatly reduce output from the entire array. PV modules connected in series must carry the same current. If some of the PV cells are shaded, they cannot produce current and will become reverse biased. This means the shaded cells will dissipate power as heat, and over a period of time failure will occur.  However, since it is impossible to prevent occasional shading, the use of bypass diodes around series - connected modules is recommended

 

 Hybrid Indicator

 

 At this point, the basic PV system configuration and size have been determined. Before proceeding to specify components for the system, a simple test is recommended to see if the application might be a candidate for a hybrid system.

 

 Two main indicators work together to alert the designer to a possible hybrid application; the size of the load, and the seasonal insolation variability at the site.  The larger the load the more likely a hybrid PV-generator system will be a good economic choice. Likewise, in cloudy climates you need a larger system to meet the load demand; thus having a higher array/load ratio. Plotting the load versus the array/load ratio gives an indication of whether a hybrid system should be considered. There may be other reasons to consider a hybrid system: for example, systems with high availability requirements or applications where the load energy is being provided by an existing generator.  A word of caution--the controls required for a hybrid system are more complex because the interaction between engine generator, PV array, and battery must be regulated. Obtaining advice from an experienced designer is recommended if you decide to install a hybrid system. 

 

 Controllers - Charge controllers are included in most photovoltaic systems to protect the batteries from overcharge or excessive discharge. Overcharging can boil the electrolyte from the battery and cause failure. Allowing the battery to be discharged too much will cause premature battery failure and possible damage to the load. The controller is a critical component in your PV system. Thousands of rupees of damage may occur if it does not function properly. In addition, all controllers cause some losses (tare loss) in the system. One minus these losses, expressed as a percentage, is the controller efficiency.  The cost of the controller increases rapidly as the current requirement increases. Controllers for 12-volt and 24-volt systems with currents up to 30 amperes are available at a reasonable cost. Controllers with 30- 100 amperes are available but 2-5 times more expensive. Controllers that will switch currents over 100 amperes are usually custom designed for the application. One way to work with currents over 100 amperes is to connect controllers in parallel. It is often less expensive to use five 20- ampere rated controllers in parallel than one 100-ampere unit. 

 

 The controller must be installed in a weather resistant junction box and can be located with other components such as diodes, fuses, and switches. Excessive heat will shorten controller lifetime so the junction box should be installed in a shaded area and venting provided if possible. Controllers should not be mounted in the same enclosure with batteries. The batteries produce a corrosive environment that may cause failure of electronic components. 

 

 Battery sizing - To determine the size of the battery storage required for a stand-alone PV system, it is required to make a number of decisions. Before making these choices, one should study and understand battery parameters and the concept of system availability. First, you must choose the amount of back-up energy you want to store for your application. This is usually expressed as a number of no sun days, in other words, for how many cloudy days must your system operate using energy stored in batteries. There is no “right answer” to this question. It depends on the application, the type of battery, and the system availability desired.

 

 Inverters - Power conditioning units, commonly called inverters, are necessary in any stand-alone PV system with ac loads. The choice of inverter will be a key factor in setting the dc operating voltage of your system.

 

 When specifying an inverter, it is necessary to consider requirements of both the dc input and the ac output.   The choice of inverter will affect the performance, reliability, and cost of your PV system. Usually, it is the third most expensive component after the array and battery. 

 

 The selection of the inverter input voltage is an important decision because it often dictates the system dc voltage.

 

 An inverter should be installed in a controlled environment because high temperatures and excessive dust will reduce lifetime and may cause failure. The inverter should not be installed in the same enclosure with the batteries because the corrosive gassing of the batteries can damage the electronics and the switching in the inverter might cause an explosion. However, the inverter should be installed near the batteries to keep resistive losses in the wires to a minimum. 

 

 Mounting structures- Ground mounting of PV arrays is recommended for stand-alone systems. Regardless of whether you buy or build the mounting structure make sure it is anchored and the modules are restrained. Many module manufacturers and distributors sell mounting hardware specifically designed for their modules. This hardware is intended for multiple applications and different mounting techniques and considerations like wind loading have been included in the design. Using this mounting hardware is the simplest and often the most cost effective. Customized array mounting structures can be expensive.   

 

 Others- It is important to select wire, connectors, and protection components such as switches and fuses that will last for twenty years or more. To obtain this long life, they must be sized correctly, rated for the application, and installed carefully. Connections are particularly prone to failure unless they are made carefully and correctly. 

 

 Step 6 – COMPONENT SELECTION AND SIZING 

 

 Once the various components have been sized, the next important step is the selection and costing of the components.

 

 There are many players in the market vying to establish their products. At this juncture, the system developer has to select components by taking into account factors like technical specifications, reliability, and lifetime of the components in addition to the cost.

 

 Investment for the solar modules is for a period of 25 years, so selecting a high efficient solar panel is of prime importance. The manufactures of the batteries claim a lifetime of about 7 years, whereas inverters guarantee at most 2 years. As can be seen from these numbers, selection becomes a crucial part of the captive solar PV installation.

 

 Step 7 – DETAILED DESIGN

 

 Now that the major components have been sized and selected, it is time to consider how to interconnect everything as a working system.

 

 The detailed design is the more actionable form of the captive solar PV installation. The system developer accumulates all the data collected from the previous 6 steps and prepares a layout of the installation on paper. The developer removes obvious engineering fallacies and prepares a corrected version of the layout on paper.

 

 The confirmed design will have all the necessary data like the average consumption per day(kWh), the insolation levels at the area under consideration(in hours) , the optimal plant size, the area required for the same, the number of panels required to be installed in that area, the number of charge controllers, batteries, inverters required for the determined plant size, the cost of all the components and many more intricate details like the viability of installing tracking systems etc.

 

 Stand-alone PV systems will be reliable power producers for more than two decades if properly sized for the application, engineered well, and installed carefully. PV arrays for stand-alone systems are installed in many unique and innovative ways. However, there are common issues involved in any installation, whether the array is fixed or tracking, mounted at ground level, or on a pole or building. 

 

 

 

 Preventive Maintenance

 

 The integral part of any completed installation is the periodic checks that are recommended for any stand-alone PV system so that little problems can be found and corrected before they affect system operation. The system should be checked soon after installation when it is presumably operating well.

  4. Divide this by the inverter efficiency to obtain the DC energy required to the AC load
  5. Calculate the total energy requirement due DC loads
  6. Add the DC energies obtained by step 4 and step 5
  7. This quantity is the total DC energy load on the battery bank

 

 

 

 

 

Selection of inverter:

 

 

 

  1. The capacity of the inverter must be more than that of the total daily average AC loads, including their surge requirement
  2. The nominal DC input voltage of the inverter will be the battery bank voltage and is decided by the design of the inverter
  3. The output will be single phase or three phase , 230/440V  & 50Hz, to be compatible to the AC loads requirement
  4. The conversion efficiency at minimum load (10%) should be 80%
  5. Total Harmonic Distortion (TDH) < 3%
  6. The wave shape, crest factor, power factor etc, to be as per the load requirements

 

 

 

 Battery bank sizing:

 

 

 

  1. The total DC energy ÷ the nominal input voltage gives the daily Ampere Hour (AH) requirement from the battery bank
  2. The daily AH hours X autonomy ÷ discharge limit provides the battery bank Ampere hour capacity
  3. Battery bank AH capacity/Individual battery AH gives the number of batteries in parallel (generally it is 1)
  4. DC system voltage ÷ the battery voltage gives number of batteries in series

 

 

 

PV array sizing:

 

 

 

  1. Average daily AH requirement from the battery ÷ battery columbic efficiency gives the AH to be put in by the PV array in a day
  2. AH required from PV array ÷ average peak sun hours in a day of the site gives Amperes required from PV array
  3. Amperes from array peak ÷ panel (or module) peak ampere gives number of PV panel strings required in parallel
  4. Nominal system DC voltage ÷ nominal operating module voltage gives the number of SPV modules in one series string
  5. Number of modules in one series string X number of parallel strings gives the total number of SPV modules in the power plant
  6. Number of PV modules X PV module wattage is the total PV array wattage

 

 

 

 Other components:

 

 

 

  1. Charge controller maximum current capacity should be one and half times that of total short circuit current of all parallel strings
  2. The total open circuit voltage of all the modules in series should give the maximum voltage of the charge controller
  3. The cables connecting the module to Junction boxes, to that of DC board and battery bank should be selected as per the standards
  4. Cut-outs, fuses and other control components should be as per the National standard of Electrical current ratings

 

 

 

Key words: Solar PV, photovoltaic system design, PV arrays, total AC and DC loads, selection of inverter for SPV, battery bank sizing, SPV array sizing, charge controller, SPV module, ampere hours (AH)

Indore NASA: Solar Energy

Solar energy might turn out as the most popular alternative source of fuel for Indoreans. The US-based space agency, NASA, in its study, had recently said that Indore was the most suitable place for investing in solar energy, thanks to its strategic location. Secondly, the country boasts to have 300 sunny days on an average.Talking to ToI, Atul K Pandey, a project engineer cum estate officer at IIT Indore, advises the Indoreans to go for solar and other alternate forms of energy. Though it normally costs higher than the conventional sources of energy at the time of installation, still it can turn fruitful in longer run. The cost of such equipment was also coming down constantly with the technological advancement, he added.

* MP to buy 125 MW solar power at Rs 7.95 and Rs 8.05 per unit

 

Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company Limited (MPPMCL) is going ahead with a plan to buy 125 mega watt (MW) green energy from two upcoming solar projects in state of as many private companies - Welspun group and Alpha Infraprop Limited under Renewable Power Obligation (RPO).

The state government is going to for purchase after the Centre asked the states to make use of some such environment friendly energy under RPO, officials said
"We have got the green light from board of directors to buy green energy from the two companies," MPPMCL managing director Manu Shrivastava says.

 

He said they are going to sign letter of intent (LoI) with the two companies to buy 105 mw power from Welspun and remaining 20 mw from Alpha respectively.

"We will get power Rs 7.90 per unit from one company and Rs 8.05 from other once. MP power regulatory commission has given its nod to buy the power and earmarked a maximum of Rs 15.35 per unit," an official said.

He said the solar power would cost them average of Rs 2,66 per unit from one company and Rs 2.70 from another one, given the rate Rs 7.90 per unit and Rs 8.05 per unit respectively would be the same for 25 years. He said that both the solar projects are likely to come up next fiscal. source  more

* Madhya Pradesh Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (MPUVNL) is going to energize some 430 police stations 

 *M&B Switchgears Ltd has sewn up plans to set up a 20 MW solar photovoltaic power plant near Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

"We will invest about Rs 250 crore in the project with a 70:30 debt-equity ratio. We have chosen the project site which is adjacent to the existing project and expect to achieve financial closure within two months," Mr Vikalp Mundra, Director of M and B Switchgears, said.

Listed on the BSE, M and B is a manufacture of distribution and power transformers.

"The project to be based on renewable energy certificate (REC) mechanism will be implemented before March 2013," he told Business Line last week after their company began trading in RECs at two power exchanges.

"We have set up a 2 MW grid-connected solar power project at Rajgarh district in MP. This project is expected to generate close to 32 lakh units of electricity per annum. By trading these through the RECs we expect to generate revenue of about Rs. 4 crore," he said.

This is in addition to energy sale cost. source

* ZAFAR ALAM KHAN says the Madhya Pradesh Government is doing its best to frame the State’s solar energy policy by March and has invited suggestions from investors

The Madhya Pradesh Government is set to promote solar energy generation as part of its efforts to overcome the power crisis in the State.

While talking to prospective investors in the solar energy sector, Minister for New and Renewable Energy Ajay Vishnoi recently said, “The Government will leave no stone unturned to promote the generation and use of solar energy.” Vishnoi told investors that the State Government is doing its best to frame the Solar Energy Policy by March-end.

The Minister also assured them of another round of meetings, if necessary, to further apprise them about the Government’s resolve to promote solar energy use. Efforts would be made to ensure that investors did not face any problems in the State. He also sought their suggestions for the proposed policy.

The Minister considered the Government’s initiative to tap solar energy as a major achievement of the State after wind energy. The investors, too, praised the move to organise the meeting. They said that efforts of the State Government boosted their morale.

The meeting was informed that solar energy can be generated under the policy in five districts of the State bordering Rajasthan — Mandsaur, Neemuch, Guna, Rajgarh and Sheopur.

About 800 megawatts of solar power can be generated in the State after ramming of the policy. Sates such as Gujarat, Rajasthan and many others have already been promoting the use of solar energy in the country.

The new Madhya Pradesh solar policy unlike other Indian policies does not contain geographical limits. The second largest Indian State released its first solar policy last month, inviting bids for projects worth 200 MW. In a marked departure from the existing policies in other states the policy does not mandate any geographical limits on the location of the project. Therefore, they can be located in any other state. For transmission, a Power Purchase Agreement with Madhya Pradesh Power Trading Company can be signed.

In other aspects too, this policy adopts a new approach. For example, the size of solar projects may vary from five MW, to as much as the complete capacity to be allotted: 200 MW. For a project located outside Madhya Pradesh, the minimum size of the plant must be 10 MW. The Odisha Solar Policy is an exception — it allocated its complete capacity of 25 MW to a single bid by Alex Green Energy last month, and also did not specify the maximum capacity allowed for a project.

With a similar scenario under the Madhya Pradesh Solar Policy, bids for projects of size greater than 25 MW can be expected. The Madhya Pradesh policy further specifies separate deadlines for projects of different sizes. The commissioning deadline for projects up to 25 MW is 13 months. It is proportionally more for larger projects — for example, for a 200 MW project, there is a 24 month deadline. This is the longest commissioning time allowed under any solar policy in India.

Although these deadlines make project execution seem more feasible which will be a boon for project developers, they will also attract many smaller and inexperienced players to take part in the bidding. Such participation could eventually lead to aggressive bidding, especially by the players who are serious about operating in the Indian solar industry.

Concerning domestic content, unlike the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh’s guidelines adheres to those of the National Solar Mission (NSM). As such, crystalline photovoltaic cells and modules must be sourced locally, while thin film modules can be procured from international suppliers. For solar thermal plants too, 30 per cent of the raw materials have to be sourced locally.

The policy additionally makes an exception in the way it has structured its penalty clauses. There are different penalties for different stages of delay. The Performance Bank Guarantee (PBG) will be enchased, but in three steps: 20 per cent of PBG after delay by the first month; 40 per cent of PBG after the second month; and 100 per cent after the third month of delay. It also specifies a provision for the completion of project after an initial three month delay.

The party with the PPA can choose to finish the project by paying monthly liquidated damages (LD). There is a tabulated list that shows the maximum delay allowed for a particular project with the LD charges. This is clearly a lesson from the Gujarat Solar Policy and an improvement over it. Under the second phase of Gujarat Solar Policy, the deadlines for the projects allotted were extended twice and eventually led the delayed projects to adhere to revised feed-in tariffs (FITs) — far lower than what they had actually signed for with their PPAs.

The deadline for bid submissions is March 21, 2012. The base FIT against which the bids will be evaluated for discounts is INR 15.35 per KW hour for photovoltaic projects (INR 13.94 /KWh including accelerated depreciation). The policy is also open for bids for solar thermal power projects for which the base tariff to be followed is INR 11.26 /KWh (INR 10.29 /KWh including accelerated depreciation). A company may bid for as many as three projects, irrespective of their locations.

The projects, if commissioned by their stipulated deadlines, will help MPPTC meet its target for Renewable Purchase Obligations for 2013. Madhya Pradesh is one of the largest power consuming States in India with a peak demand of nearly 8 GW and a peak deficit of close to 10 per cent. The State’s RPO demand for solar power is expected to rise to 400 MW by 2016. The State currently does not have any capacity for solar power generation.

Madhya Pradesh is a neighbour to both Rajasthan and Gujarat — States with the highest solar irradiation and the largest areas of arid lands. With the flexibility to locate projects in States other than Madhya Pradesh, developers will be looking to base their projects in either of these States to make it more cost-effective. Should this work out, it will a major factor in driving down tariff.

While the land costs might seem like a good incentive to set up plants in these States, doing so will also increase the cost of wheeling and transmission. Grid evacuation could prove to be an issue. Plants usually depend on the nearest 33 KV substation, which is provided and owned by the electricity board of the State where it is located. If a plant outside Madhya Pradesh, which has a PPA with MPPTC, fails to get an evacuation from its native State, the cost of transmission lines leading to the closest substation owned by MPSEB will have to be incurred by the project owner.

While the policy has redefined the perspective with which Governments have been looking at the solar energy industry, it will be equally important for MPPTC to take care of the very last mile as far as power transmission goes. It will also have to lay down clear guidelines for evacuation arrangements to avoid any administration issues in the future.

Madhya Pradesh plans building land bank for solar park

Inspired by the solar park set up in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh is also planning to open a similar park to get rid of the power woes concerning the state. A land bank will be created for the purpose to lay down the solar panels for the park.

 

As an initial effort, 2,000 hectares of land not suitable for farming or industry will be marked for the purpose.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan discussed the solar park project in detail in the meeting of the energy department on Monday. Chauhan said, “Solar energy is a futuristic investment. The importance of solar energy will rise in future and there is a need for balanced initiative in this direction.”

The Chief Minister said that land not suitable for agriculture or setting up of industries must be identified for developing infrastructure for the solar park besides studying the solar park set up by Gujarat.  

In the meeting it was said, a policy has been made for promoting modernization of power. Many officials along with Chief Secretary Avni Vaishya were present in the meeting.

President of State Congress Committee and MP Kantilal Bhuria has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party Government in the State for promising to allot Government land free of cost to some of its supported companies.

In a statement on Thursday, Bhuria alleged that the State Government has promised some of its supported companies to provide 1,000 acres of Government land, free of cost, for establishing a solar energy plant with a capacity of 100 megawatts.

Bhuria said the State Government is bringing the solar energy policy back in Madhya Pradesh and major changes have been made in this new policy. The Congress is suspecting that the reason behind these changes is to provide beneficial opportunities to some major companies who have links with the BJP.

He said, "National leaders of the BJP consider the party's Government of Gujarat as an ideal for all its States but still the Narendra Modi-led BJP Government in Gujarat maintains distance with the BJP Government in neighbouring State."

Under the solar energy policies in Gujarat, it has been made mandatory for the plant establishers to give the Government Rs12 to Rs15 lakh per acre and Government owned lands are not given free of cost. The amount received by these people is utilised on the development of the plants only, he added.

He further said, "It is surprising that the BJP is the ruling party in both Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh States but the solar energy policies in these States are totally different from each other. Around 600 MW power worth of solar energy plants have been established in Gujarat till date while Madhya Pradesh is still empty handed in this matter."

Bhuria asked Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to clarify as why the Gujarat's solar energy policy has not been adopted in Madhya Pradesh. He should also clarify whether providing free of cost Government lands which have worth in millions of rupees to the companies, is in the favour of the people of Madhya Pradesh. more

MPRLP acted as facilitator, smoothing the way for the MPUVN to install lights in 13 tribal villages where there was no electricity and no likelihood of being connected to the grid for a long time. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy provided funds, while MPRLP worked with Gram Sabhas and the communities to win the villagers' commitment to installing lights.

 

The lighting programme has provided home lights to all the families in the tribal villages. Families contribute a one-off payment of Rs. 100 for their system, with the rest of the cost being provided by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy through the MPUVN. A typical home lighting system costs around Rs. 7,500. MPRLP is helping Gram Sabhas to make plans for using solar energy more extensively.

 

The Energy Development Corporation has drawn up a plan to enhance solar energy hot water capacity to two lakh litres per day in Madhya Pradesh.

Solar Business Opportunities in Madhya Pradesh:



The Solar business opportunities mentioned below are not specific to Madhya Pradesh. They are industry specific opportunities. 



Polysilicon manufacturing



Polysilicon is used to manufacture crystalline wafers. Around a quarter of the cost of a Crystalline module goes just for polysilicon.



The Ministry is providing soft loan at 5% annual interest rate through IREDA for setting up manufacturing facilities for manufacture of poly silicon material, silicon ingots and wafers, solar cells or integrated solar cell-module plants. No soft loan is available for setting up manufacturing unit for module manufacture or PV system manufacture. The proposals are considered by IREDA as per their lending and project appraisal norms. The details of the scheme are available with IREDA.  http://www.mnre.gov.in/spv-fin.htm



Type of entrepreneurs/ investors who can benefit - Entrepreneurs keen on building up capital intensive manufacturing facilities for an emerging market. The industry is dominated by a few companies that supply around 90% of the total polysilicon market. Some of the prominent companies are Hemlock, OCI, Wacker Chemie Tokuyama, REC (subsidiary SGS and ASiMI), and MEMC.

 

Scale of investment - Typical investments of $500 million - $1 billion for building a polysilicon production plant.



High R&D or commodity manufacturing? - Commodity manufacturing



Bottlenecks/threats - High capital requirements, high energy input requirements and long-term supply contracts could be deterrents to new entrants.

 

Competition - The industry is dominated by a few companies that supply around 90% of the total polysilicon market. Some of the prominent companies are Hemlock, OCI, Wacker Chemie Tokuyama, REC (subsidiary SGS and ASiMI), and MEMC



Market size - The world market of polysilicon has been growing 30-40% annually since 2004, primarily from the growth in solar PV industry. The market size of the solar cell polycrystalline silicon market in 2009 was $5.13 billion.



Supply and demand - Following undersupply since past few years, polysilicon production capacity entered a fast-growth phase in 2009, which resulted in an oversupply situation, in response to increase in production capacity and growth in demand from the end markets. It is forecasted that the demand for polysilicon will continue to increase at more than ten percent for the period 2010 to 2012. Polysilicon oversupply will also trigger a long term decline in its prices, which peaked to the highest levels in 2008 in response to its supply shortage.

 

Indian scenario - Companies such as Lanco, Bhaskar Solar, Tata BP Solar and Acharya are reportedly setting up polysilicon manufacturing plants in India, though these are pretty much early days for polysilicon in India.

 

It is not advisable to enter into this market at present. That is why I have not even updated some of the information given above. Everyone needs to know that Polysilicon manufacture is an opportunity for those in the solar industry.

 

It is meant now, for those who are already in the business.

 

 

The prices are falling, efficiencies are increasing, machineries getting outdated, and thus it is a dynamic industry. Many companies are filing for bankruptcy. AVOID.

 

Ingot and wafer manufacturing



The process of melting polysilicon into ingots and subsequently cutting them into wafers is wedged between polysilicon production and cell manufacturing.

 

Yet, it is a distinct process that does not require physical proximity to upstream or downstream processing. Consequently, some companies specialize in just doing that. Typically, ingot and wafer manufacturing are done by the same company.



Type of entrepreneurs /investors who can benefit - Companies that have been operating in metal cutting and finishing, abrasives and related industries could be ideally suited to enter this segment.



This too is avoidable. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solar Cell Manufacturing:



Cell manufacturing involves creating the all-important pn-junction, coating and layering. It is an important step in the value chain that is responsible for about 15% of a solar PV module cost and it is here where significant technical differentiation is created.

Avoidable 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crystalline Cell Manufacturing:



Type of entrepreneurs / investors who can benefit - Ingot and wafer manufacturers who are keen on forward integration can exploit this opportunity.



Scale of investment - Medium-Large. A rule of thumb guide to the capital investment in building a solar cell plant is US$1-1.25 million/MW for crystalline silicon and US$ 2 million/MW or more for thin films. The minimum economical size for a solar cell factory is about 20 MW.

 

Avoidable

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thin-film Solar Cell Manufacturing



Manufacturing thin-film modules comprises depositing photovoltaic material on a substrate, structuring it into cells to form an electric circuit and wire and frame it depending on application. The key suppliers for the thin-film industry are chemical companies that produce high-purity metals such as CdTe, GaAs etc. The supply chain is less constrained than that for polysilicon (used in crystalline solar) and therefore much more reliable. This industry experiences a diverse mix of big-hitters (Sharp), start-up companies and universities. Companies with a long-term vision should start investing in this field.



Type of entrepreneurs / investors who can benefit - Chemical companies that produce high-purity metals such as CdTe, GaAs are in a good position to exploit this opportunity. Glass manufacturers are also in a good position to exploit this opportunity. Equipment firms that have traditionally supplied printing machinery or manufacturing equipment to the semiconductor and display industry see the burgeoning thin film industry as a potentially lucrative market, especially as their hardware can often be easily adapted to manufacture thin film cells and panels. At the same time, these equipment manufacturers are not finding it that easy to enter the TFPV space because module manufacturers are choosing to design and build proprietary equipment rather than buy it in.

 

Scale of investment - This industry experiences a diverse mix of big-hitters (Sharp), start-up companies and universities. A rule of thumb guide to the capital investment in building a solar cell plant is US$1-1.25 million/MW for crystalline silicon and US$ 2 million/MW or more for thin films. The minimum economical size for a solar cell factory is about 20 MW.

 

High R&D or commodity manufacturing? - Opportunities exist for R&D and innovation in this exciting sector. Prominent segments where significant innovation possibilities exist are: efficiency, new thin film materials, design and process.

 

Bottlenecks/threats/barriers - For development and small-scale production, there are few barriers, as companies like Aja International specialize in providing small-scale sputtering equipment. However, when scale becomes important, access to capital might become a barrier.

 

Competition - This is a very dynamic segment with lots of startup companies, some venture-funded. There are also a number of companies that also produce crystalline technologies. Those companies tend to be in the amorphous silicon thin-film segment. The organic photovoltaics segment is mostly covered by research institutes rather than private companies.

 

Market size - The production volume has increased steadily as 165MW in 2007 and 357 MW in 2008. The share of thin films is expected to increase significantly and expected to reach about 25% of total in 2013. (EPIA data).

 

Supply and demand - The thin film solar cell production reached a consolidated figure of 1.68 GW in 2009 out of the total 3.58 GW capacity available, indicating that there is some amount of surplus capacity. However, the demand supply gap could look very different in future with enhanced offtake of thin film world over.

 

Indian scenario - There are only a few Indian companies such as Moser Baer and HHV Solar that make thin film solar cells. A few others such as Kirloskar are also exploring this field.



 

CIGS, CdTe and amorphous silicon a-si are the three types.

NOTWorthwhile pursuing opportunity



First solar, Abound Solar, Primestar of GE are the companies to associate with.

It is a difficult manufacturing process. 

You may also want to study the below given not yet proven cos.

Miasole, (counselled by Intel)

Heliovolt, 

Nanosolar,

SoloPower

Stion

Solar frontier,

Sulfurcell, 

AQT

Telio,

Global solar

ISET

Odersun,

Wuerth Solar etc 

 

All the above are CIGS manufacturers. Some of them are startups and you need to study their production process and record well.



May make sense to tie up with any one of them, who is doing well, now, than going in of your own manufacturing. 



CdTe thin film companies are CdTe: Abound Solar, Primestar, Solexant, Bloo Solar, Willard and Kelsey, Xunlight26



a-Si - Sharp solar 



Ascent solar tipped to have the highest upside in the stock market is another company to watch out for.

 

As per the JNNSM guidelines, thin film can be imported for its Phase I Batch I and II as there are no manufacturers.

 

Some of the thin films have been found pretty efficient in India. Viz First Solar.



To repeat 

NOT Worthwhile pursuing opportunity.  AVOID.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CSP 



CSP is an umbrella term for CSTP and CPV.

That is the way I am taking it. 

The purists may not agree.

For the purpose of this note, it is fine to define CSP as above.



In concentrating PV (CPV), concentrators use optics to concentrate sunlight onto a small area of solar cells, thus allowing for a decrease in cell size. Because a CPV module needs less cell material than a traditional PV module, it is cost effective to use higher quality cells to increase efficiency. However, the technology makes up a very small portion of the solar industry.

 

CPV system manufacturers assemble the solar cells, concentrator unit and heat sink to form a module. Where applicable, companies will either integrate a tracking device or offer it as a separate product for free-standing module installations.

 

CPV is currently quite R&D driven, with a number of innovations taking place in this area. The types of entrepreneurs who will find this domain suitable are those who have scientific R&D backgrounds and have access to funds for significant R&D investments.



As a rather recent technology (being commercialized), there are new entrants, many of whom are venture funded. Some of the prominent ones are: Amonix (California), SolFocu (California), GreenVolts (San Francisco), Concentrix Solar (Germany) etc.



CSP



Interesting opportunity area for large companies. Very soon India will need utility scale solar energy plants with molten salt so that they can provide electricity 24 hours. As per the Renewables Purchase Obligation, RPO, all utilities are expected to buy 0.25 % every year and that is a considerable amount for each state. 

 

This is the only solar technology that allows for storage naturally. Since the solar radiation is indirectly converted to electricity, there is an opportunity to store the collected heat in molten salts, before converting the heat to electricity.

 

The cost of setting up the molten salt system is exorbitant.



The common understanding is CSP is cheaper than PV due to the use of off-the-shelf, commodity components like mirrors, turbine, etc. It also was known to have higher efficiencies in solar to electricity conversion (~15%).



Due to the global oversupply in PV panels and reduced demand due to the financial crisis, the prices of the panels have drastically reduced. On the efficiency front, the PV at 15-20% efficiency is typical now, further adding the cost parity. The result is that PV is now at parity or close to parity with CSP. One western region utility claimed that they pay 0.16 c/Kwh for CSP and 0.14 c/Kwh for PV. This difference was attributed to the timing of the PPAs; generally the difference is not significant anymore.

 

A CSP project in USA has shifted to PV. Actually it is world's largest project that has shifted from CSP to PV

 

http://www.eai.in/club/users/Nithya/blogs/7417

 

BHEL has tied up with a CSP major. 

 

The ability to provide “firm power” is a clear advantage of CSP at this time. Due to the output being provided by a steam turbine (and not directly from the field) and a ~2 hour built-in buffer in the trough technology, small variations in the in insolation do not affect the turbine output – like a passing cloud.



CSP will also be needed for many townships, industrial estates etc 



Large companies which want to take less risk and are happy with predictable rewards can go for this. 



Here are a list of CSP companies with a note for each of them. You may want to work with one of the best, than go it alone.

In my ranking, following are the companies to look upto Bright source Energy , Solar Millennium , Abengoa , Areva , Siemens, Acciona, SolarReserve, eSolar, Schott, etc., 

 

But then there is no clear basis for my selection. 



Viability / grid parity is a question as far as CSP is concerned. It will take a little longer than PV.

 

Spain’s track record sends an encouraging message to newer entrants in the CSP market from India to South Africa and beyond. When Spain started building plants in 2007, the first plants such as PS10 and Andasol 1 were highly dependent on imports of foreign supplies, requiring at least 50% of the requisite parts to be sourced from abroad. The plants that went online in 2010 were built with around 80% of components from Spanish companies. 

 

If in doubt, read more http://www.csptoday.com/csp-markets-report/

 

When the Gov of India start implementing RPOs ie Renewable Purchase Obligation in earnestness, then we will suddenly need several utility scale solar projects.

CSP will be the way to go. 

Study CSP and be ready for utility scale solar projects. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solar Module Production - Solar PV module manufacturing involves assembling the cells into a module to form an electric circuit. This is the last manufacturing step before it is distributed to wholesalers.



Indian scenario - There are about 35 companies in India that produce crystalline solar modules.



Avoidable. Dont enter now.

The market is crowded. 



China is doing predatory pricing. It will swallow even local manufacturers, if they are not quick.

If you are already a module manufacturer, it makes sense for you to enter power generation. 

 

And to enter Rooftop solar. 

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Opportunities in Solar energy in India and Madhya Pradesh are



*Ground Zero opportunity 

 

Roof top solar!

 

It is a very good opportunity and there are opportunities for very large companies as well as for medium sized companies and individuals to get into business. 



As an individual you can start a business as an Installer. 



You will have a few well trained / skill trained employees working under you. 



At the small, residential scale, there are practically no barriers to entry.  



There is a wealth of training material available, both in person and online which enables even a one-man contractor to become fit enough to install roof top solar. 

 

At the larger, commercial scale, the main barrier to entry is capital, expertise in management, in sales, etc., 



You will install solar modules in a rooftop as per your Integrator's instructions.



An Installer is someone who is technically minded and can manage a few people or if you can manage many people at a time, then you become an area Installer. 



The installer model is somewhat like a conventional contractor model.  Gross margins are thin, from 15 to 30%. Residential Rooftop systems typically receiving larger margins than commercial. 



Because commercial jobs will be invariably got thru an Integrator or an EPC contractor.



It is an opportunity for domestic module manufacturers to get into.

The opportunity exists for 

Installers

Area Installers

District Installers

Integrators

Area Integrators

District Integrators

Regional companies - covering a few states having similar policies

 

National companies 

 

The Installers can choose to work on their own or under the National companies, Regional companies, District integrators, District Installers, etc., 

 

The market will evolve as fragmented and unstructured to begin with and will get consolidated. 



You can get more information about types of Installers in Rooftop solar business models.

 

An integrator is someone who deals with the customer, Electricity board, etc



Then there will be a company. Either a national company or a regional company which deals with the Gov, electicity board, corporates etc, 

 

You can read all about them in Rooftop solar business models

 

And Rooftop solar technology types http://www.eai.in/club/users/Nitin/blogs/6670



Rooftop solar is a viable alternative and the prices / tariff in each state will soon help bring about grid parity and the sooner you get into it, the sooner you will reap the benefits.



Rooftop solar comes about in many forms. For example a captive power plant may need a rooftop solar solution as a part of it. 



Diesel to Renewables may need rooftop solar solution.

Implementation of off-grid solar PV project under JNNSM

FAQ

 

1. What is the Procedure to register as Channel Partner?

 

There are 5 types of channel partners and they can participate in the programme through the following procedure:

 

A  RESCO is a entity which would install, own & operate RE systems and provide energy services to consumers. These entities may tie up with FIs for accessing the financial support under the scheme. These are in fact the only entities which would approach the MNRE on their own. CRISIL is in the process of putting in place a system of accreditation. From September 2010 these entities could approach either CRISIL, CARE or FITCH to have themselves accredited and if they meet the minimum requirements laid down by MNRE they would be in a position to approach the Project Appraisal Committee (PAC) with their proposal for a in principle approval. 

 

The PAC would then provide the entity “in principle “approval and allow it to move forward with the implementation. The PAC would also specify that on completing the project, 50% of the funds would be made available automatically and the remaining on completing monitoring. 

 

As far as the Financial Institutions as channel partner is concerned, a comprehensive re-finance scheme has already been notified by IREDA.  The SPV Division has also floated an EoI, wherein they have received over 80 applications from entities interested in partnering in the bank led scheme.  

 

The SPV Division would shortlist the manufacturers region-wise or across the country depending on the strength of their existing after-sales network.  The division will also identify various products after verifying how each of the laid down by MNRE, and then along with product is meeting the standards laid  NABARD, design a pre-approved scheme which will allow RRBs to proceed with the lending for the above identified products and empanelled manufacturers.   It is highlighted that the process of empanelling both the manufacturers and products would be an ongoing process in order to make sure that if there are new players who meet the requisite standards can also be appropriately empanelled. This process it is hoped will result in enabling NABARD to announce their pre-approved scheme to all the financial institutions, which have a re-finance agreement with them.  IREDA will, after signing the agreement in Mumbai on 25th August, place token funds with NABARD to initiate the implementation of this scheme.   

 

System integrators can approach the PAC; with their project in the formats finalise to seek an ‘in principle’ approval.  Since these are entities that would first interact with their market and build a project based on the tentative orders that they have been provided by their clients, the PAC would appraise the project on three basic parameters:-

 

(i) The ability of the entity to implement the project in terms of the skill set of their personnel. 

 

(ii) Details of how parameters of quality would be met as per the standards specified by MNRE.

 

(iii) O&M Plan.

 

System integrators would however need to approach bank/banks who would be willing to have a three way tie up with their clients, themselves and the bank.  The bank/banks would also need to have a re-finance agreement in place with IREDA, NHB or NABARD.  Based on the ‘in principle’ approval, the bank would be in a position to provide the lending support to the clients that have been identified by the system integrators.  It is envisaged that both the capital and interest subsidy would flow to the beneficiaries of the scheme only through the banking channel. Requisite arrangements for providing this flow have already been clearly delianated in the re-finance scheme notified by IREDA.

 

Financial integrators are entities who need to enter into a tri-partite agreement before coming to MNRE. This tripartite agreement has to be between the manufacturers/service providers, financial integrators and any other financial institutions, which is willing to support this kind of a business model.  It is envisaged that the financial integrators would approach the PAC with details of their financial model as well as the product or service that they wish to provide through this financial/business model.  

 

The PAC would appraise the project on the following parameters: 



(i) Details of how parameters of quality would be met as per the standards specified by MNRE.

 

(ii) The ability of the entity to implement the project in terms of the skill set of their personnel. 

 

(iii) O&M Plan.

 

(iv) Financial/business models and its viability.



It is expected that the financial integrators would also tie up with a schedule commercial bank in India so that the subsidy both capital and interest can flow through the banking channel and would be covered under the re-finance scheme of IREDA.



In so far as the implementation of the scheme through programme administrators is concerned, there is complete clarity in how to move forward. 



Formats for both SPV and Solar Thermal have also been prepared.



2. How to submit a project proposal?

 

Formats for submission of proposal are given on the Website of the Ministry. 

 

Two sets are required to be submitted to PAC.3. How the project will be approved?

 

Once the proposal of the channel partner is received an in- principle approval from PAC will be given within a maximum of 45 days. In case additional information is required PAC will inform within 30 days. After full information is received proposal will be cleared in two weeks.



4. What is the subsidy disbursal mechanism?



The release of funds for the project shall be back ended as reimbursement on completion and verification thereof. However for progamme administrators, the release of funds could be front ended, with installments of 70% on sanction and 30% on completion. However, this could be extended to other entities on provision of appropriate sureties. In respect of credit linked capital subsidy and interest subsidy the scheme would be implemented through IREDA, which will be  the designated Nodal agency for disbursement of funds.



5. Procedure for accreditation for channel partner/ financial integrator/ systems integrator/RESCO? 

 

As above in (1)



6. Can NGOs directly approach MNRE for implementation of projects?

 

Only the NGOs who have already been working closely with MNRE can access the scheme directly. Otherwise, the NGOs should collaborate with SNAs. 



7. Whether lighting systems to be provided should be certified by SEC or other test centers?

 

Compliance to standards is mandatory. Certificate from test centres will help in this regard and should be provided to ensure complainace.



8. What is the policy on local content of modules, batteries and other balance of systems in off grid programme?

 

The scheme requires the project proponents to strictly adhere to the national/international standards specified by the Ministry from time to time.  The Use of imported complete PV systems is not permitted under the scheme. 

 

However, use of imported components of a complete PV system is permitted, subject to adequate disclosure and compliance to specified quality norms and standards.

 

The minimal technical requirements and Quality Standards in respect of the off-grid SPV power plants/ systems are given in Annexure-3 of the scheme for solar off-grid applications. These will come into effect from 1st September 2010 to allow sufficient time to the SPV industry to gear up for the same.



9. What are financial limits assigned to channel partners?

 

The financial limits will get decided based on the ability of the channel partner to deliver the implementation of the project within a period of 1 year. But the PAC would not accept any proposal of value less than Rs One crore or 30 kWp. Less than this amount would need to be aggregated at State level.



10. Whether commercial entities can avail accelerated depreciation?

 

The commercial entities can claim all the benefits, which are presently available for renewable energy applications, including solar, under the Income tax act and other notifications, subject to fulfillment of the conditions.



11. Whether any channel partner interested only in capital subsidy whom should he approach?

 

Only accredited channel partner and Programme administrators can access ‘only capital ‘subsidy. The commercial entities can access either capital subsidy or interest subsidy. They should approach a channel partner to avail subsidy.



12. Whether RESCOs require any permission from Electricity boards to produce power?

 

Guidelines under the Electricity Act,2003 and the extant regulations of that particular State will need to be read in conjunction to determine the process for captive power generation.



13. Whether any new technologies invented any where can be introduced in the programme?

 

The Ministry could provide up to 100% CFA for undertaking pilot and demonstration projects through manufacturers and other organizations for demonstrating new and innovative applications of solar systems. The maximum CFA that would be permissible under this provision would be up to Rs 1 crore. The PAC would evaluate the proposal based on parameters like – new applications for solar (not merely using solar as a power source), possibility of reduction of cost of BoS or system design improvement, or a new concept etc.

* Floating solar plants.



There are three companies namely Sunengy in New southwhales, Australia, Solarsis Synergy in France/ ciel-et-terre.net/ and SGPsolar in California, USA.



They have different methods of achieving solar power from floating solar panels, solar plants, etc.



They all use captured water bodies.



India has 30000 sq km of captured water bodies.



If even 1 % of that area is utlised - it will equal 1500 large coal plants.



Tata's have tied up with Sunengy, which has a patented technology called LSA.



With the other two companies, entrepreneurs/ companies from India can seek to have a tie up.



There is a solar business opportunity in terms of research for the research minded.



All about this opportunity http://www.eai.in/club/users/aathmika/blogs/1170



Tatas have already started building a floating solar plant with Sunengy, somewhere near Pune.

 

There is another company in Punjab doing this.

 

There is a clear opportunity for big companies to tie up with Solaris Synergy and or SGP solar in California USA.

 

http://ciel-et-terre.net/floating-photovoltaic/



This is the French company.

 

I have been recommending these companies for a long time. 

 

 

 

NOW, SGP solar has been ranked as one of  the fastest growing private company in usa. 

 

Or you can fund research in this area. 

Floating solar plants 

 

Great opportunity: For large companies, with deep pockets.

* A low cost solar energy solution for the Indian industries



Solar Heat for Industrial Purposes, SHIP for short,  the Market in India, the Business, the Opportunity, Cost Advantage of Solar Process Heat



The market for industrial heat in boilers is estimated to be 26 billion US dollars per 

annum in USA alone.

 

Solar steam produced is estimated to cost $ 4.60 per MBTU compared to average cost of natural gas powered steam of about $ 6 to $ 10 per MBTU.



This estimate is as per one the companies in Solar Heat for Industrial processes (SHIP).



Indian entrepreneurs should take up such projects that cut down co2 emission and is less expensive.



There are several companies that are into SHIP in USA. One of them claims that their process is CO2 emission free. Obviously because they use solar energy.



The company also claims a reduction in the cost by as much as 50 %.  



That is a lot. Those interested must act fast.

 

Solar Heat for Industrial Purposes

(SHIP)



You can discuss your suggestions, ideas, questions 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Captive power plants.



Many factories, companies, office complexes, textile factories, cement factories, sugar mills and many other small and medium industries need back up power.



What is being talked about as an opportunity is this back up power. Actually already many companies in India already have captive power generation. But there a lot more number of companies in India which can benefit from this captive power plant from solar energy.



There are some financial benefits and also the benefits of RECs otherwise known as Renewable Energy Certificates which are tradeable. There is good report on this at

 

http://www.eai.in/ref/reports/captive_power.html



Reading up the report will open up the opportunity for the above mentioned factories for their own backup power ie captive power.



Those who are marketing minded and those who are solar energy consultants or renewable energy consultants, this is a very good business opportunity in India.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Education and training:



MNRE expects that there is going to be a need for 100,000 trained professionals in the next 8 years.



I think that is a gross underestimate.



This opportunity is not just for individuals who want to learn and get jobs. Or learn and start a business or set up a training center as a businessman. OR u can even set up an online course for the whole world. The limitations are your imagination.



I foresee many training centers both for unskilled and for post graduation education courses happening soon. The course contents given in the sample solar education centers, will be Indianised by the shrewed Indian businessmen.



Some of them may go for tie up with universities abroad. For example they may have a tie up with a US university in Pune or a tie up with a European university in Jalgaon.



Good opportunity to get into Solar education, Training.



Opportunity exists as a nationwide company, as a college, as a university, providing Graduations/ Degrees or practical training for the blue collars, providing certificates /diplomas.



When the surge comes there will be a need for trained professionals.



Can be a franchisee also.

* Solar inverters



In a Global Clean Technology Conference on February 23-24 in New York, with more than 100 public and private companies and 700 attendees, including strategic and financial investors, high-level policymakers and industry thought-leaders in attendance the following question was asked as a part of a Survey.



Question:



Within solar, which sectors of the supply chain are the most attractive investment themes?

(Please rank with #1 being the strongest):

Inverters 1

Cells/Modules 2

Projects/Installation 3

Polysilicon 4

Manufacturing Equipment 5

Wafers 6

 

The result of the survey is given in green color.

Inverters!!



That is why I am calling it a great solar business opportunity in the Indian market too.



700/800 of the world’s leading practioners have identified Inverters as the most attractive investment theme.

 

Solar inverters in India, manufacturers, cost and business opportunities  - You can get to know the business opportunities here.



You may want to look at http://www.solren.com/residential.html and http://www.solren.com/utility.html



Manufacturing opportunity is meant for large cos.

 

What is the capital subsidy, interest on loan, rebates if any etc can be got from here



Especially for inverters in Residential rooftops, area wise distribution is an opportunity for the sales minded.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Micro grid:  

 

The electrical needs of rural households are relatively small (0.5-2.5 kWhr per day) and a micro-grid system of 20-35 kW would suffice a small village. This may not be a 100 % solar solution. The solution to the villages can be hybrid.



Will research and write more about this opportunity soon.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*. Solar Irrigation Pumps: 

 

This is a big opportunity area. Already being catered to in many villages.

GET IN

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*. Solar thermal



India on an average has 300 clear days of sun and the radiation in most parts is 4.5 to 6 kWh/m2/day, which is pretty high.



Solar thermal projects  concentrate sunlight on a fixed point and uses a medium to move the stored heat energy to a place where it can be converted into electricity by superheating water into steam and using the steam to turn a turbine that generates electricity—ultimately the same process that natural gas and coal-fired power plants use to generate electricity.



Solar dryers can be used in agriculture.



At present the waste is just exposed to the sun and dried. Solar water heating. It is being made mandatory in many states to heat water for bathing purposes with solar water heater in all new buildings. Solar thermal can be used for cooking, community cooking in hotels, villages, schools in villages, etc



Several industries that need low to medium heat can use solar thermal technology to reduce air pollution and carbon foot print.



This opportunity is for the technically minded. This opportunity exists for small medium and even big companies.

* Manufacture of Solar Refrigerator, DIY Solar Refrigerator, marketing, Maintenance and Repair of Solar Refrigerators

 

http://www.eai.in/club/users/harita/blogs/1484



The blog gives as of now basic insight of a Solar Refrigerator.



It also provides information on manufacturers in India and abroad.



There are many villages without electricity and they need refrigeration for the individul households, for preserving the produce of that village. Very soon, we will have information on market potential of solar refrigerators in India's villages, market size of solar refrigerators in other markets. Cost of solar refrigerators and actual cost of refrigeration etc also would be made available soon.

 

For now u can visit http://www.eai.in/club/users/harita/blogs/1484  (You can discuss your ideas, doubts, questions, etc in this blog)



Good opportunity

To manufacture. 

To market. 

To maintain.

Even solar coolers are a good opportunity.

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Opportunities in Solar cities:



There are going to be about 60 solar cities coming up across India.



What business opportunity exists in this solar city concept of mnre is a question in the young minds of Indians. Will try and answer them in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.



Besides suggesting business opportunities in solar energy in India for large and medium companies, I thought it will be useful for small and individual players, if I can explain as to how they can get into solar business in India, it will be useful.



There are bound to be opportunities for individuals, SMEs to take advantage of Solar City concepts. Let them start coming up and we will identify ' solar city' opportunities there.



This opportunity has not been updated, because, there are no proper guidelines from the respective State Governments. Once the policies come out, opportunities will be identified and posted here.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solar Air Heaters 



With global warming, there is global cooling also that happens.



During winter, the North of India becomes too chill to manage.



Every urban household would do with an Air Heater, a solar air heater. Even the rural households and the households in the unelectrified villages will need an air Heater. The old and the young suffer in cold and air Heater is not a luxury any more.



It is a good opportunity to manufacture AIR Heaters and market in such cold markets. 



All discussions, questions pertaining to this opportunity to be restricted to this blog.

Indore NASA: Solar Energy

Solar energy might turn out as the most popular alternative source of fuel for Indoreans. The US-based space agency, NASA, in its study, had recently said that Indore was the most suitable place for investing in solar energy, thanks to its strategic location. Secondly, the country boasts to have 300 sunny days on an average.Talking to ToI, Atul K Pandey, a project engineer cum estate officer at IIT Indore, advises the Indoreans to go for solar and other alternate forms of energy. Though it normally costs higher than the conventional sources of energy at the time of installation, still it can turn fruitful in longer run. The cost of such equipment was also coming down constantly with the technological advancement, he added.

    Japan's FiT in July is among the highest in the world. It's clear that Japan's FiT will shake the solar market. New solar technology will show in Japan. This is it!

    As you know, earthquake in japan is happening frequently. Floating solar panels installation is one of the best solutions for power crisis in Japan. So you have to reduce the vibration to install Floating solar panels. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! The vibration’s caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating solar panels installation has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating solar panels are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, this Floating Body Stabilizer’s using to reduce the Vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can see New Floating Body Stabilizer videos in YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moO--q5B92k, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA_xFp5ktbU&feature=youtu.be. Like

    Welspun Energy wins 125 MW solar PV project in Madhya Pradesh

    Welspun Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Welspun Renewable has won a 125 MW Solar PV project in Madhya Pradesh, India. This is the highest capacity to be awarded to any Indian entity in the solar space to date.

    Welspun Solar proposes to develop this project in the Mandsaur district in the Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh. The company is targeting to complete this project within 19 months from the date of signing the PPA. Welspun Solar anticipates that the completion of this project will make the company one of the largest renewable players in India.

    Welspun Solar will put up one solar photo voltaic project of 100 MW and another of 25 MW capacities. The company will invest USD 225 M for this project. Welspun Solar has emerged one among the four winning bidders for solar projects in Madhya Pradesh. The company has won the bid by quoting a tariff of Rs. 8.05 per unit for this project.

    The bidding process was conducted by MP Power Management Company Limited, at Jabalpur. The feed-in tariff in Madhya Pradesh is Rs.15.35 per unit. However, in the recent reverse bidding process conducted by the Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company (MPPMC), the lowest tariff quoted was Rs.7.90.

    Madhya Pradesh is facing an annual power deficit of 17.9 percent. The power generated by this project is expected to power of 6, 60,000 homes, mitigating 2, 29,550 tonnes of carbon annually. http://greentechlead.com/details.php?id=1677


    M & B Switchgear, which has commissioned the first grid connected 2 MW solar power plant (Madhya Pradesh) in March, has become the first solar power producer in the country to be issued 249 solar RECs bythe National Load Dispatch Centre (NLDC).


    In a first, as many as 100 solar renewable energy certificates (RECs) were traded on the Power Exchange of India (PXIL), out of which five were bought at a price of Rs 13,000 per certificate.

    "PXIL has made a history by concluding the first successful solar REC trade. The first certificate was traded on the exchange, which helped the participants to meet their obligations. They were traded at Rs 13,000 per certificate," PXIL chief executive Rupa Singh told PTI here.


    RECs are generation-based 'certificates' awarded (electronically, in demat form) to those generating electricity from renewable sources such as wind, biomass, hydro and solar, if they opt not to sell the electricity at a preferentially higher tariff.

    These certificates are tradeable on power exchanges and are bought by 'obligated entities' that are either specified consumers or electricity distribution companies. These obligated entities may be required to purchase a certain quantum of either green power or RECs.

    The obligations are split into non-solar and solar -- which means the obligated entities have to purchase either power from solar power projects or RECs generated by them. The RECs of M and B Switchgears, manufacturer of transformers, were traded on the exchange.

    M & B Switchgear, which has commissioned the first grid connected 2 MW solar power plant (Madhya Pradesh) in March, has become the first solar power producer in the country to be issued 249 solar RECs bythe National Load Dispatch Centre (NLDC).

    "Today's trading has shown that there is sellers- market and there are buyers who want to comply with renewable purchase obligation (RPO). We expect a good response going forward," she said.

    PXIL is expecting another company with a capacity of 0.5 mw to commence trading on the exchange next month.

    More than two dozen villages in rural central Indiawill have electricity for the first time thanks to a solar power program, SunEdison announced Wednesday.


    SunEdison said it will design, install and manage distributed-generation solar power plants to 29 villages under the Eradication of Darkness program.

    More than 400,000 people in India live without electricity, limiting education and economic opportunities and making them more vulnerable to sickness and famine, according to SunEdison, a subsidiary of suburban St. Louis-based MEMC Electronic Materials Inc.

    "This program is making electricity accessible to citizens in Indiawho have never dreamt of having it in their homes or workplaces," said Ahmad Chatila, president and chief executive officer of MEMC.

    The program will be implemented in stages to 29 villages near Guna, Madhya Pradesh, benefiting about 41,000 people.

    SunEdison declined to estimate the cost of the project but said funding will come from government grants and private investment. The timing will depend on how quickly each project is approved by local governments, but company officials hope to complete all of the plants in 12 to 18 months.

    Earlier this year, the Belmont, Calif.-based company finished a pilot project with the installation of a 14-kilowatt solar energy plant in Meerwada, Madhya Pradesh, which supplies power to 400 villagers.

    The company said that Meerwada villagers, who walked nearly two miles to collect drinking water, had only kerosene lamps for artificial light. SunEdison worked with villagers to establish a council that will maintain and protect the system from vandalism and theft.

    SunEdison has been working with villagers in the Guna District to educate them about electricity, said Pashupathy Gopalan, SunEdison's managing director for the region.

    SunEdison officials said the India project will provide a business model that can be used to get electricity to other unserved areas around the world.

    Centre to provide assistance for solar energy-run submersible pumps in 735 villages

    Public Health Engineering Minister Shri Gaurishankar Bisen has urged the Union Government that instead of solution to drinking water arrangements by installing hand pumps, the Union Government should extend assistance in making water available through piped water schemes based on surface water in the rural areas. By doing so, drinking water demand in the rural areas can be met for a long time. Shri Bisen was speaking at a meeting of states’ Rural Development and Drinking Water Ministers at New Delhi recently. The Union Minister for Rural Development and Drinking Water Shri Jairam Ramesh presided over.

    Minister Shri Bisen informed that the State Government has constituted Madhya Pradesh Water Corporation for surface water-based rural drinking water scheme on the instructions of the Union Government. The meeting was informed that the Union Government will provide Rs. 38 crore for installing solar energy-run submersible pumps in 735 villages of Madhya Pradesh. Shri Bisen informed the meeting that drinking water is being made available to villagers during summer through 9,800 rural piped water schemes. Seventeen multipurpose drinking water schemes are being implemented in several villages of Madhya Pradesh. These schemes have been chalked out by including many villages. source
