Rajasthan Opens Bidding for 200 Megawatts of Solar Farms

Quote:
India’s Rajasthan state started accepting bids from developers to set up 200 megawatts of solar power projects in an area that has the country’s second-most solar radiant exposure.

The state plans to auction contracts for 100 megawatts of photovoltaic plants and 100 megawatts of solar thermal plants, Naresh Pal Gangwar, chairman of the state-run Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corp. said today by telephone.

Reliance Power Ltd. (RPWR), Shriram EPC Ltd. (SEPC) and SunEdison, the solar development unit of MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. (WFR), are among companies that are developing projects in Rajasthan, believed to have some of India’s most promising resources to develop energy from sunlight with its sprawling desert terrain.

Solar thermal technology uses sunlight to heat liquids that produce steam for generators, while photovoltaic plants use panels to turn sunlight directly into power.

Contracts are available for photovoltaic projects of 5 or 10 megawatts each and for solar-thermal plants of 50 megawatts each. Companies can bid for both types, according to the agency’s auction rules.

Unlike contracts awarded by the central government, Rajasthan will allow companies to import equipment and technology for their projects.
Bids are due by 3 p.m. local time on Jan. 30 after which the agency will shortlist candidates who meet all the eligibility requirements. The bids will be opened around mid- April.

Plans to also auction an additional 50 megawatts of projects to companies that pledge to build solar manufacturing facilities in the state are awaiting government approval, Pal Gangwar said. Rajasthan had proposed that companies be eligible for licenses to install 10 megawatts of solar power for every 25 megawatts of manufacturing capacity they build.

The state receives on average the most solar radiant exposure in India after Gujarat state, according to a joint study by the India Meteorological Department and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.

Azure Power commissions 5MW project in Rajasthan in record time

Quote:
NEW DELHI: Azure Power has commissioned the first 5MW solar PV power plant under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) at Kathauti village, Rajasthan today. The project, spread over 40+ acres of wasteland has been commissioned in a record time of 11 months.

This power plant, set up under the Phase I Batch I of JNNSM will supply power to the Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd. It is also expected to reduce carbon emissions of up to 5500 metric tonnes every year.

For batch 1 of the phase 1, NVVN ( NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam) had invited request for qualification for 150 Mw of solar PV projects, with a capacity of five Mw each, and 500 Mw solar thermal projects, with a minimum capacity of five Mw and maximum of 100 Mw each. Sixty companies participated in the bidding.

JNNSM aims at tapping the huge potential of solar power in India, which is estimated to be around 5,000 trillion kWh per year energy. Government recently indicated that the target to achieve grid-parity would be reduced from 2022 to 2017 looking at the huge participation and low tariffs quoted by solar energy companies.

Rajasthan to have four solar parks: Gehlot

Quote:
JAIPUR: Buoyed by the allocation of 873 megawatt to Rajasthan by the Centre under the National Solar Mission phase -1 out of the 1100 mw, the state is planning to develop four solar parks of 1,000 mw capacity with a thrust on equipment manufacturing.

Speaking at the solar energy session on the first day of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas -2012, chief minister Ashok Gehlot said, Solar parks of 1,000 mw capacity will be set up in Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Barmer. These enclaves will consist of various zones for activities like manufacturing, research and development, and training."

He said722 companies have so far registered for setting up of solar power projects, with a cumulative capacity of 16,900 mw. Including the projects already registered and the additional projects proposed, the sector is expected to attract investments to the tune of Rs 16,000 crores, he added.

Gehlot further said Rajasthan enjoys many advantages in solar energy generation with abundant land availability, availability of solar radiation at 6-7 kWh/m2 and availability of raw material used in the solar energy sector - zinc, molten salt and solar glass.

Union minister for new & renewable energy Farooq Abdullah, the chief guest of the occasion, drew attention to the need for research and development to give a push to the sector. "Investment and research in solar energy sector is a must as renewable energy can help preserve the global ecological balance," he said. He appealed to the overseas Indian diaspora to look at investments in generating capacities and R&D and added that the sector offers good potential for profits.

Praising the efforts of government of Rajasthan on renewable energy, Abdullah said Rajasthan has huge potential for solar energy. Solar energy is already playing a vital role in Ladakh in street lighting, illustrating the solar energy potential of the deserts.

Vayalar Ravi, Union minister for overseas Indian affairs, said energy is the real force behind any development. He highlighted the advantages of solar energy especially in satisfying the basic requirements of rural India, generating employment opportunities and preventing migration to the cities.

Deepak Puri, co-chairman of CII national committee on renewable energy, and & chairman, Moser Baer India, pointed out that 60% of rural households in India do not have access to electricity he urged for innovative models such as pay-per-use model and community charging to make solar energy popular and available to all.

Mahindra Solar Rajasthan unit on stream

Mahindra Solar Rajasthan unit on stream

The plant is expected to provide electricity to around 60,000 rural homes
Quote:
Mahindra Solar One, a solar power developer, commissioned its first 5 MW solar power plant. A part of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) policy, the project is located near Jodhpur in Rajasthan and was the first to achieve non-recourse financing in the industry.



The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) arm of Mahindra Solar, Mahindra EPC, has commissioned this project in a record time of 100 days and the plant is expected to provide solar electricity equivalent to around 60,000 rural homes and avoid emissions of about 8,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.


Mahindra Solar One is a joint venture between Kiran Energy and Mahindra and plans to play a larger role in solar power generation both as an EPC contractor in on-grid and off-grid and as a developer set up greater than 100 MW in the next 2-3 years.


In 2011, it won a 30 MW bid under the Phase-1B of JNNSM. It has projects under development across Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.


Speaking at the launch ceremony on Monday, Farooq Abdullah, Union Minister for New & Renewable Energy said, “The New & Renewable Energy Ministry recognises the important role solar energy plays for our country's energy security. How this energy will be stored is the big challenge. Research is on in hydrogen and salts and batteries. It is an evolving technology and the costs are coming down.”


He advised the Mahindra Group to venture abroad with the solar energy initiative, particularly Africa where it is needed most, adding that in India wind energy generated around 17,000 MW of power and was adding 3,000 MW per annum. “The other areas we are looking at are tidal energy and geo-thermal energy for which we are exploring Chhattisgarh and Ladakh.”
Anand Mahindra, Vice-Chairman & Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra said that India had no option but to look aggressively at solar energy as the energy demand was in the order of 75-100 gigawatts over the next decade.



“All renewable energy initiatives require an ecosystem — finance, technology and the access to rural areas. We aim to be one of the top three companies in this industry and Mahindra Solar One will provide a fillip to our nation's solar competencies.”

Moser Baer commissions 5 MW solar farm in Rajasthan

Quote:
New Delhi: Moser Baer Clean Energy Ltd (MBCEL), a unit of Moser Baer Projects Private Ltd (MBPPL), had commissioned 5 MW solar power project at Jodhpur in Rajasthan, a move that will light over 70,000 rural households, the company said.

The opening ceremony of the farm - built under the solar subsidy scheme, the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission - was attended by the renewable energy minister Farooq Abdullah and the Chief Minister of Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot.

Generating approximately 9.2 million units of electricity per annum and saving carbon emissions equivalent to 8,400 tonnes annually, the project is a part of the $1 billion Moser Baer has pledged the Indian states of Gujarat, Orissa, West Bengal and Rajasthan, for projects worth 300 MW.

Inaugurating the solar farm, Abdullah said, "We thank Moser Baer for setting up the solar farm. The company is currently working on cutting edge R&D for generating solar energy indigenously in the country and I am sure that the state of Rajasthan will prove to be a golden state towards this effort."
"It is critical that our domestic companies manufacture solar modules that can be deployed at different solar farms across the country which will not only generate alternate source of power which is clean but will also help generate employment and create a manufacturing ecosystem within the country," he added.

Moser Baer has developed the solar project jointly with the ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM).

Mytrah Energy to increase wind energy generation capacity

Quote:
HYDERABAD, JAN 24:
Renewable energy generation company, Mytrah Energy (India) Ltd, is set to augment capacity of about 150 MW through two wind farms in Andhra Pradesh and 250 MW more in Rajasthan, Karnataka and Maharashtra, taking the installed power generation capacity up to 500 MW by June 2012.

“Once installed, this will make us the largest wind energy company in the country with a total capacity of 500 MW up from 100 MW now,” Mr Vikram Kailas, Managing Director of Mytrah Energy, an Alternative Investment Market, London-listed entity, told Business Line.

In AP, the company is investing Rs 900 crore for 150 MW. The company currently has an installed capacity of about 100 MW of wind energy, including Rajasthan (42 MW), Maharashtra (39 MW) and Gujarat. It is at advanced stage of setting up of two farms in Kurnool (80 MW) and Anantapur (65 MW) the latter at Vajrakayur and more farms in Rajasthan, Karnataka and Maharashtra.

“We have requested the Andhra Pradesh Government to increase the tariff for wind energy farms from Rs 3.50 per unit to Rs 4.50 per unit, which makes it financially viable for wind energy operator. This is necessary to complete the ongoing projects in Andhra Pradesh, whose schedule for implementation is June 2012,” he said.

The installation cost per MW of wind farm averages Rs 6-7 crore depending upon the location. A tariff of about Rs 4.50 per unit is ideal. Such a tariff is necessary to ensure more projects come up in the country, he felt.

The company has signed up with the Andhra Pradesh for 2,800 MW over seven years with a total outlay of Rs 17,500 crore. Earlier, known as Caparo Energy, Mytrah has secured funding from IDFC and others for wind energy capacity of about 700 MW.

Siemens unveils deals to supply 300MW of Indian CSP plants

Quote:
Siemens Energy has won orders to supply steam turbines for four Indian concentrating solar power (CSP) plants that will have a combined capacity of 300MW.

The Godawari, Abhijeet, Diwakar and KVK plants, all in the state of Rajasthan, are being constructed as part of the National Solar Mission (NSM), the Indian government's programme for promoting solar power.

The Godawari plant, owned by Godawari Green Energy, and the Abhijeet facility being built by Corporate Ispat Alloys will each have a 50MW capacity.

Siemens has been awarded contracts for an SST-700 steam turbine generator unit and auxiliary systems for each plant.

The third customer, Lanco Solar Energy, has ordered steam turbines and generators rated at 100MW for the Diwakar and KVK power plants, as well as auxiliary equipment.

All of the plants are scheduled to start production in the spring of 2013.
As Recharge reported earlier this month, Siemens has emerged as the biggest winner so far for contracts for India’s burgeoning CSP industry, securing equipment deals for four out of the seven projects to be included in the NSM’s first round.

General Electric and Areva are understood to have won deals to supply turbines for one project apiece, while a single developer – Aurum Renewable Energy – remains undecided.

CSP is to account for 470MW of the 1GW of capacity India aims to build in the NSM’s first round, which runs through 2013.

The NSM foresees installing up to 20GW of solar capacity in India by 2022.
The blossoming Indian market is a godsend for industrial manufacturers that have invested heavily in CSP technology, to then see the market largely dry up in Europe and the US.

"As a leading provider of steam turbines for solar thermal power plants with an excellent track record in Spain and the US, we are now in the front running on the rapidly developing market in India too,” says Markus Tacke, chief executive of the Industrial Power business unit at Siemens Energy.
Siemens offers type SST-700 steam turbines for solar thermal power plants with a rated output of up to 175MW

Rajasthan lowers solar tariffs ahead of bid deadline

Quote:
CHENNAI, JAN. 31:
The Rajasthan Electricity Regulatory Commission has lowered the tariffs for the purchase of electricity from solar power plants in the State by the state utility.

A solar power producer in the State who completes his project by March 31, 2014, will get Rs 10.12 a unit if he does not claim ‘accelerated depreciation' and Rs 8.85 a unit, if he also claims accelerated depreciation.

Earlier, these figures were Rs 15.32 and Rs 13.19 a unit for projects that would be put up by March 31, 2012. These downward revisions were announced on January 23, barely 25 days ahead of the February 17 deadline for submitting bids.

Rajasthan has a fairly large programme, of 200 MW, equally divided between photo voltaic and thermal.

FALLING TREND

The revised tariffs demonstrate the falling trend in prices. In the first round of bidding under the National Solar Mission, the benchmark tariff was Rs 17.91. (In the reverse bidding process, bidders would offer discounts on this, and the lowest bidders would win the projects.)

In the second round, NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam Ltd (NVVN) which was the buyer of the electricity and the agency nominated for handling the bidding process on behalf of the National Solar Mission, the benchmark tariff was Rs 15.39. The actual average tariff of the winning quotes turned out to be Rs 12.16 for the first round, and Rs 8.78 for the second.

“Compared with the average bid price of Rs 8.78 a unit in the second round of the National Solar Mission, the Rajasthan tariff is still very attractive and is bound to get a good response from developers,” says Mr Vineeth Vijayaraghavan, Editor of Panchabuta, an online newsletter, which tracks the solar industry closely.

Mr Vijayaraghavan further notes that lower tariffs are not necessarily bad for developers, as the burden of bank guarantees also comes down commensurately.

Sun shining on Rajasthan’s solar sector

Sun shining on Rajasthan’s solar sector

Quote:
JAIPUR: The ambitious solar parks project modeled after the special economic zones will take off the ground as the state government is kick-starting the bidding process for power plants from February 17. The process of finalisation of bids, approval and allocation of land will be completed by June this year, a top government official involved with the project said.


Out of the four proposed parks, the one in Jodhpur spread over 10,000 hectares is being developed first in phases where survey for 3,000 hectares of land has already been completed. Parks in other three places such as Jaisalmer, Bikaner, and Barmer districts are being planned to make Rajasthan a solar power hub in the world with an aim to generate up to 11,000 megawatt (MW) in 12 years.


While the government targets a capacity 3,000 MW from the Jodhpur park, the current bidding will be for 100 MW, the official in the renewable energy department said. And in the first phase, he added, the department has planned for 500 MW.


The state that receives maximum solar radiation in the country along with abundant low-cost desert land has been in the forefront contributing most of the solar power produced in the country. But headwinds from high cost of production have thwarted the efforts of the state to realize its potential.


But the official said that dynamics of the industry is changing faster than imagined, its for the better, reviving the interest of investors. For example, the single window clearance panel that approved projects worth Rs 15,000 crore on Monday also cleared ventures from solar energy sector contributing almost half of the amount.


Speaking to TOI, Purushottam Agarwal, commissioner, bureau of investment promotion, said that committee approved the Kolkata-based Sonthalia group's proposal for a solar park. He said the company is looking to set up an integrated solar park with an investment of Rs 4,500 crore. Besides, there were two other proposals worth Rs 1,500 crore, which were also cleared by the panel.


While the appetite for solar power among the investors has seen a resurgence, the availability of infrastructure will be a key deciding factor to attract investment in the sector.


"The aim of creating parks is to provide power producers the required infrastructure, which are being developed in Jodhpur park. The Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation is planning to create a special purpose vehicle for the development of infrastructure and management of solar parks," the official said.


Most of the infrastructure needed to evacuate power from the plants to the grid is available for Jodhpur park with Rajasthan Rajya Viduit Prasaran Nigam building pooling-in stations and transmission lines.
Rajasthan's ambition to become a global solar power centre received a huge boost after the Central government allocated 873 MW to the state under National Solar Mission phase -1 out of the 1100 MW. By developing solar parks, the state also seeks to promote allied industries and activities like manufacturing, research and development, and training in these enclaves. It banks on the availability of raw materials like zinc, molten salt and solar glass to catapult the state as a destination for investments in equipment manufacturing.
So far 722 companies have registered for setting up solar power projects, with a cumulative capacity of 16,900 MW.

solar power plants with total capacity of 450 MW over the next three years; investment of Rs 4,500 crore

Quote:
Jaipur: State government is all geared up to instal solar power plants with total capacity of 450 MW over the next three years in the state. The project involves investment of Rs 4,500 crore and will be undertaken in the western parts of the state, which receives maximum solar radiations in the country.

As per the solar power policy, the tender process to instal various solar plants of different capacities has already started. “The tender process has already started. These plants will be installed at places like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and other places in western Rajasthan,” said a senior official in energy department.

In a bid to promote solar power, a large number of solar power plants are being installed in the state. Under the project around 100 MW-capacity plant will be installed for small solar photovoltaic projects of 5 to 10 MW capacity. Besides this, two 50 MW capacity plants will also be installed. Under the project, 50 MW solar TV will be installed along with conventional power projects of the same capacity.

According to experts, the appetite for solar power among the investors has seen a resurgence but the availability of infrastructure will be a key deciding factor to attract investment in the sector. However, senior government officials are of the view that a parallel infrastructure will be built to make Rajasthan a self-sufficient solar power state.

Rajasthan’s ambition to become a global solar power centre received a huge boost after the Central government allocated 873 MW to the state under National Solar Mission phase -I out of the 1,100 MW. By developing solar parks, the state also seeks to promote allied industries and activities like manufacturing, research and development, and training in these enclaves.

Presently, 135 MW-capacity power plants are already installed in the state. In one MW plant, around 17 lakh power units can be generated annually and installing one MW plant require an expenditure of Rs 10 lakh.

Rajasthan Amongst World's Best Locations for Solar Energy

Quote:
With India's highest solar radiation in western Rajasthan, half of India's solar capacity in 2022 could come from this state, says Satya Kumar, managing director of Shri Shakti Alternative Energy Ltd.

The high radiation in combination with a large amount of sunny days in .Rajasthan makes it by far the most popular location for projects under the National Solar Mission The average tariff of all project bids under the second round of the National Solar Mission was as low as Rs.8.78/Kwh.

"The natural reaction of some investors to this outcome was that it's too low. But if you analyse the conditions in Rajasthan, it will become clear that this tariff is viable," says Kumar, who researched a case for a 10MW plant in Rajasthan. Shri Shakti Alernative Energy Ltd is developing the infrastructure for a 100MW private solar park being developed under an MoU with Government of Rajasthan.

"In western Rajasthan, a Capacity Utilisation Factor (CUF) of 21 percent can be achieved," Kumar further explains. "In Germany, the world solar capital, this is typically 13 percent. This means that a 1MW solar plant in western Rajasthan can produce 1.85 million units per year, compared to around 1.6 million units elsewhere in India."

"The conditions in Rajasthan are so favourable, that it will be amongst the most logical places in the world to implement solar power," says Edwin Koot, CEO of Solarplaza, a Netherlands based information platform for international solar energy stakeholders.

Solarplaza is organizing the conference The Solar Future: India II on 29 February in Jaipur. "It's only a matter of time for solar power to take off on a large scale in Rajasthan," says Koot, explaining the choice of location.

Besides attention for the benefits of Rajasthan and other local developments, the conference will host internationally renowned speakers with an eye for global trends and inspirational future visions. This in combination with an informal networking atmosphere gives the event a unique character.

Speakers include Ravindra Raina, President of India operations, Astonfield; Ravi Khanna, CEO of Solar Power Business of Aditya Birla Group; Jigar Shah - CEO, Carbon War Room; Vishal Shah - Managing Director & Senior Analyst Alternative Energy Deutsche Bank; Ashok Bhalotra, Ambassador, KuiperCompagnons; Madan Mohan Vijayvergia - Director (Technical), Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation.

Yagya Bhai - Riddle me this - does anyone actually "own" the vast desert tracts that borders and/or covers Bikaner, barmer, jaisalmer and jodhpur?

Reason I ask - is that I was watching this documentary on Bloomberg here and this analyst was mentioning steps being taken in China and India and Gujarat/Rajasthan in particular to cover thousands of hectares of barren land into a contiguous mass of solar photovoltaic panel fields.

Something he said struck me - he thought it wasn't too far in the future wherein the deserts of Rajasthan and Gobi would so be covered in "continental sheets of Solar panels" that these super-massive Solar plants in China and India would even be visible from space!!
Only way that would be possible is if no one actually "owns" desert lands, in India at least - only the government does - not even the existential generational families of nawabs or even large private landholders!!

Que pensez-vous?
