Clean Energy from Wind Power
Tamil Nadu, INDIa*
The project activity involves the implementation of an 8.5 MW wind power project, consisting of 13 wind turbine generators (WTGs) in villages in Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli and Coimbatore districts in Tamil Nadu.
All the energy gained is fed into the pipeline network. The energy generated from wind turbines is considered to be almost carbon neutral and therefore does not contribute to additional greenhouse gas emissions.
At the same time, the same amount of energy that was previously generated by fossil fuels can be taken off the grid.
This is an important contribution to the development of renewable energy in India and helps India to fulfill the commitments it has made in Paris to reduce greenhouse gases.
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.
