SOLAR ENERGY PROJECT BHADLA
Clean energy from solar power
The aim of the project activity is to generate electricity from renewable energy sources (solar energy) and to sell the electricity generated to the state power grid.
The project generates electricity from solar energy. The electricity generated is fed into the regional electricity grid, which falls under the jurisdiction of the Indian electricity grid.
The project activity replaces the anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, which are estimated at around 694,471 tCO2e per year and thus replaces 733 MWh of electricity per year from the generation mix of power plants that are usually operated with fossil fuels (coal). The solar power plant is connected to the INDIAN GRID.
The project helps to create employment opportunities during the construction and operation phases. The project activity will contribute to the development of the infrastructure in the region.
The project is an investment in clean technologies in the region that would not have been made without the income from the emission allowances. The project activity will also help bridge the gap between supply and demand for clean energy. The project activity will generate electricity with no emissions. Solar-based power generation that helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and specific pollutants such as SOx, NOx and SPM.
The successful operation of the project activity promotes solar-based power generation and results in other entrepreneurs being encouraged to participate in similar projects.
Solar is a renewable energy source, reduces dependence on fossil fuels and conserves natural resources that are on the verge of depletion. Due to the zero emissions, the project activity also helps to avoid significant amounts of greenhouse gas emissions.
Climate protection taken seriously - through own fossil-fuel phase-out
According to the Climate Protection Index 2017 (Germanwatch), India ranks with place 20 nine places before (!) Germany in the international climate change ranking.
And though India is one of the ten largest carbon emitters due to its population of 1.3 billion, its per capita emissions are still at a relatively low level. However, the country’s emissions are currently rising fast. About 25 percent of the increase in power consumption is covered by renewable energies, but there is still enough room for improvements.
India’s government intends to quadruple the share of renewable energies by 2022. Today, power from solar panels is already the cheapest source of energy in India. All coal-fired power stations should be dismantled by 2026. In 58 developing countries, including India, wind and solar energy is now cheaper than fossil-fuel power. (Bloomberg) With our climate protection projects from India, we support climate protection efforts of the central government, which has been a true pioneer in the past for years, compared to Germany. Germany as alleged climate protection pioneer today and probably also the next decades, is funding the brown coal distribution with billions of public money.
