The IIT Madras in conjunction with other industrial partners have come up with a sustainable and powerful power generation compared to the traditional power generation. They are the MIcrogrids. These are localized grids that operate independent of grid electricity. They are highly efficient, affordable and easier to deploy compared to the traditional power generation methods.
The Ministry of Power has proposed setting up Renewable Energy Management Centres (REMCs) across the country to help monitor renewable energy generation and easy integration of Solar wind hybrid with grid power
In order to promote eco friendly vehicles, the government has been offering several incentives to make it go more mainstream.According to the FAME India scheme it has set a target to achieve sales of 6-7 million hybrid and electric vehicles year-on-year from 2020 onwards.
Also Tesla has recently announced the launch of its Model 3 in India with India-wide Supercharger network and having a manufacturing plant in India.
The Canadian International school located off the Airport Road in Yelahanka uses Solar Rooftop to power its energy requirements and supply the excess to the grid.
This serves as a great example for institutions to go green and stay carbon neutral .This also gives students important lessons on taking care of their environment.
NTPC has developed the the first of its kind – India’s largest floating solar generation plant with 100 KwP capacity. This was developed as part of the ‘Make In India’ initiative.
Solar panels are mounted on floating boards on water bodies. These are found to be much more efficient and cost effective compared to the solar systems installed on land.
