have a very limited supply left of fossil fuels and
at the current rate of consumption they will be consumed
within this century itself. This makes it utmost important
to start building infrastructure for other technologies
of generating energy. One of these technologies is Bioenergy.
It is a sustainable energy system which relies on different
types of wastes.
do projects for biomass energy, Waste Management, Waste
to energy and sustainable biofuels. This technology
promises to address many of our problems.
One major solution it provides is that of utilizing of waste
to produce energy and thus saving us from the need to take care
of disposing off the waste and also provide energy to us. For
each metric ton of waste approximately 0.7 MW of electricity
can be generated. By this figure one can access that if we build
such projects we will be contributing to saving the environment,
address the global warming issue and the greenhouse gases emissions
problem as well. There should be a minimum heat content of 2300
- 2500 kcal/kg For self-sustaining combustion. It is not feasible
for combustion below 1500 - 1700 kcal/kg.
The waste available in India has a heat content of 750 to 950
kcal/kg due to a varied climate spectrum in India. This makes
it very difficult to use this raw material directly for incineration,
It is a necessity therefore, to prepare this waste to make it
suitable for incineration and the further process of making
alternative fuel and also generate electricity during the process.
Biomass energy in lieu of fossil fuels is an upcoming alternative
for power generation. However we still have a long way to go
for this technology to evolve, the government needs to design
policies to promote this technology. The raw material is available
in abundance and will pave the way for rural development also.
This is a boon for the rural areas which are still not connected
to the grid and are deprived of the benefits of electricity.
Then there is a more popular solution in Solar energy. As we
all know solar energy is a free and renewable source of energy
available throughout India. There are various technologies available
to harvest the Solar energy. Photovoltaic is one of the most
popular technology available. In order to harvest this approximately
1 Sq. Mtr. of space is required to generate 100 W of energy.
Another source of renewable energy is Wind Power. This technology
is feasible in places where there is regular wind available.
Wind turbines are placed strategically to utilize the wind energy
most efficiently and these turbines then in turn generate electricity.
is presently focusing most of its energies in Gujarat. An 100
MW Wind Farm is under development as of December 2009.
It is a first
of its kind Wind Farm having both Wind and Solar output on the
same plant. Perhaps one of the first of its kind in the world,
boasting of such a dual output.
Work is in
progress. Signed an MOU with Metatron
