India is planning to achieve 50 gigawatt (GW) of production from renewable energy by 2028, in order to get to its goal of 40 per cent of electricity generation from non-fossil fuels by 2030, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy secretary, Anand Kumar said at the India-Norway Business Summit 2019 in New Delhi.

Of this 500 GW, 350 GW would come from solar, 140 GW wind, and the remaining generation capacity would come from small hydro and biomass power.

“This figure excludes large hydro. If we take large hydro into account the figure will grow to 560 GW to 575 GW. To reach this figure we have to bid out 30 GW of solar energy and 10 GW of wind energy every year,” Kumar said.

He added that India’s requirement for electricity generation capacity may reach 840 GW by 2030 if the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grows at a rate of 6.5 per cent.

“Out of 840 GW, we plan to install a little more than 500 GW in renewables. We have installed 75 GW renewable energy capacity in the country and another 46 GW is under various stages of installations,” added Kumar.

Germany Facing Mass Blackouts Because The Wind And Solar Won’t Cooperate

Germany’s energy network nearly broken down in January because of poor execution from wind turbines and sun based boards, as indicated by information from a noteworthy exchange union.

Wind and sunlight based power plants failed to meet expectations in January, 2017, as a result of shady climate with almost no wind, setting the phase for monstrous power outages.

A noteworthy power outage nearly happened Jan. 24 and was just avoided when German vitality providers “also took the last reserve power plant,” Michael Vassiliadis, leader of the union which speaks to power plants IG Bergbauchemie Energie, told columnists. The nation’s energy matrix was strained to as far as possible and could have gone disconnected altogether, setting off a national power outage, if only one power plant had gone disconnected, as per Vassiliadis.

“he renewables could not even offer five percent [of total power demand.] Coal, gas and nuclear power kept the country almost in the first place under the electric current,” Vassiliadis said.

Solar Trees Powering The Park Of South Florida

Joining South Florida’s lush, green canopy of real trees are a new crop of solar trees. These “trees” have blue trunks and bear no fruit, but supply clean energy to whoever needs it.

If you’re at the beach and your phone starts to die, you can charge it right here using Solar Power.

Here’s how the solar trees work: Each solar tree comes with 2 solar powered panels up top. Some of that energy collected is powering the grid of the community, and to a nearby box that send electricity to plugs where phones or compuers can be charged.


China’s New Large Solar-Powered Drone Reaches 20,000 Meters in Altitude

China’s first domestically designed large solar-powered unmanned plane reached above 20,000 meters in altitude on its test flight in the country’s northwest regions recently.

The drone was developed by the China Academy of Aerospace Aerodynamics (CAAA), it’s developers kept the exact size of the drone as a secret, but it is believed to be about 14 meters long with a 45 meter wingspan according to earlier prototypes.

 

Construction has started on the largest solar project in Nepal

The reports say that the constructions of a 25MW largest solar PV project in Nepal has begun. The foundation stone was laid last week at Devighat in Nuwakot by Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation, Barsha Man Pun.

The government plans to finish the construction of the project in a year.

As stated by Pankaj Kumar, national capacity building expert, this is the first large-scale solar project in Nepal.

Sono Motors Introduces The SION Solar Powered Car

The fantasy of having the capacity to drive to work in a solar-powered car is at last turning into a reality. Sono Motors simply uncovered the SION solar-powered electric car gives you the ability to travel up to 18 miles utilizing only energy from the sun. Best of all, the SION isn’t only for the whealthy, since it just costs 16,000 Euros (around $18,600) in addition to the cost of the battery, and it is pressed with unbelievable components like built-in moss filtration, bi-directional charging and integrated solar panels.

Sono Motors Sion Solar Powered Car

A year ago, Sono Motors, a German startup raised over $200,000 create the SION. Utilizing 300 photovoltaic panels, the SION can store enough energy from the sun to give you the ability to travel up to 18 miles, however in the event that you have to travel further, the SION can likewise be energized utilizing a standard outlet, similar to a regular electric auto. Depending on the amount you want to spend, you can rent the battery month to month, or buy outright.
