A transition from fossil fuels to a clean energy alternative is a special on important development for India's fast-growing economy. Wind farms use prevailing winds to produce clean, renewable energy, while also being important for infrastructure, economic and social benefits in more remote communities.
The project involves the installation of 223 wind turbines with a total capacity of 233.1 MW in the state of Andhra Pradesh (44 x 0.85 MW each), Karnataka (112 x 0.85 MW) and Tamilnadu (67 each). x 1.5 MW). India.
Project activity will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by displacing grid electricity from the Southern Grid, a fossil-fuel dominated grid. The aim of the project activity is the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources (wind) for the purpose of own use. The project activity generates electricity with wind potential and uses wind turbines to convert it into kinetic energy that drives the generators, which in turn generate energy. The generated electricity is exported to the regional grid system.
The project also benefits the communities of the surrounding villages. By investing in employment, health education, women's advocacy and the provision of clean drinking water.
Climate protection taken seriously - with its own coal exit law
According to the Climate Protection Index 2017 (Germanwatch), India is ranked number nine places overall (!) In Germany in the international climate protection ranking.
And although India is one of the top ten emitters of carbon due to its 1.3 billion population, its per capita emissions are still at a relatively low level. Nevertheless, the country's emissions are currently rising rapidly. Although about 25 percent of the rising energy consumption is covered by renewable energies, there is still enough room for improvement.
India's government wants to quadruple the share of renewable energies by 2022. Electricity from solar collectors is already the cheapest source of electricity in India today. By 2026, all coal power plants are to be abolished. In 58 developing countries, including India, electricity from wind and sun is already cheaper than electricity from fossil fuels. (Bloomberg)
With our climate protection projects from India, we support the climate protection efforts of the central government, which has been playing a pioneering role for years now compared to Germany. Germany, as alleged climate protection pioneer subsidizes today, and probably the next decades, the brown coal electricity generation with billions of taxpayer money.
