How to save energy with solar power in India
A new technology called ‘haldiac’ could be a game changer for the energy industry in India, where the country’s electricity demand is expected to hit nearly 50 GW in the coming months.
According to research firm ETX Capital, the technology could help save energy as much as 10% annually.
India’s solar power industry has been in turmoil since a solar storm swept through the country in April, damaging power plants across the country.
India has also faced several power shortages in the past few years, leading to a spike in power demand and pollution.
The country’s grid has been plagued by intermittent power disruptions, and is already struggling to cope with the crisis.
The latest solar storm hit at the start of April, which was exacerbated by the fact that the country is experiencing an unprecedented solar eclipse.
According the ETX report, the haldiac technology would allow for more efficient use of solar energy and reduce the use of fossil fuels.
The technology would not only cut emissions but would also help reduce pollution and power outages.
‘A new technology’ ‘We are a world leader in renewables,’ said Dr S.P. Prasad, CEO of the Renewable Energy Foundation, which is one of the organizations backing the project.
‘We have a lot of experience in the field, we have a very good track record and we are well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.
‘India has one of most dynamic renewable energy markets in the world.
We believe that this new technology will help accelerate the transition to renewables and make it a lot easier for businesses to switch to sustainable energy.’
This is a significant milestone for India’s renewable energy sector, and one that will have significant impact on the country for years to come.
‘Haldiac is a new type of power generation system that uses a series of modules that use a mixture of molten salts and a molten metal for generating electricity,’ Dr Prasam said.
‘The molten salt is pumped into the molten metal at very high temperatures, and when the molten salt evaporates, the molten metals are mixed with water to create a liquid electrolyte.’
The liquid electrolytes are then pumped into a solar array, where solar power is generated from it.’
Our aim is to bring this new type to India, as the current market is limited.’
Haldia is also an innovative company that has a number of patents that will help us accelerate this technology’s development.’
Theres a solar power plant here!’
In its announcement, Haldia said that its haldia solar system could be used in areas where electricity is not available, such as in industrial zones, schools, and hospitals.
‘In these areas, the Haldiac system could reduce energy use, thereby saving money, and also contribute to the development of renewable energy sources like solar power,’ the company said.
India is one the first countries in the developed world to see solar power production skyrocket in recent years, due to the country achieving an unprecedented renewable energy boom.
According a report by the Economic Times, India’s rooftop solar power generation has reached a record high of 2,000 megawatts, and has grown from 5,000 MW in 2015 to nearly 50,000MW in 2019.
‘This is a huge step forward in the country, which has always been a leader in the clean energy sector,’ said Pranay Bhandari, Executive Director, Indian Solar Alliance.
‘It is an exciting time for the Indian solar industry, as more and more states are becoming solar power independent.’
The solar power revolution has seen a lot more solar power projects approved in the last couple of years, and India is expected soon to set up the countrys first commercial solar power project.
Haldi is aiming to get up to 70 GW of installed capacity by 2022, and in order to get this number, the company needs to get all the green cards for its solar plants.
‘These new technologies will make it easier to build new plants in India,’ said Rajesh Kumar, founder and chief executive officer of Haldibas, the solar power company that is behind the Halslava project.
