To provide 24x7 uninterrupted power from renewable energy sources, experts from the UK and IITs are now working together to create a new model which combines the best of solar power, biomass energy and hydrogen.
The first-of-its-kind UK-India experimental Bio-CPV project on development and integration of biomass and concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) system will soon light up a remote tribal hamlet in Shantiniketan, 180 km away from here.
"The problem with dependence on solar power is that sunlight is not available 24x7 and 365 days a year. Therefore we are integrating it with biomass so that the power supply remains continuously available," project leader Prof Shibani Chaudhuri said.
She said that this was the first time that the three sources of green energy would be integrated together in India.
The installation work is expected to begin in October, this year and the entire model would be ready by 2016.
Chaudhuri, who teaches environment at Visva-Bharati University in Shantiniketan, said the idea was to use solar power during the day and match it with biomass generation from local sources of organic material during the night.
Hydrogen would also be used for emergency use. The UK-India research project is jointly funded by Research Councils UK (RCUK) and India's department of science and technology.
From the UK, experts from the University of Leeds, University of Exeter, and University of Nottingham are sharing their inputs with scientists from Visva-Bharati, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay.
Pearsonpally, a tribal village of Shantiniketan, has been selected as the site for installation of the integrated energy system.
The scientists have been conducting research work at labs for the last two years.
Once the project is ready, around 30 houses in the village would be lighted up using the new technology.
"It is a pilot project to demonstrate the efficacy of such a low-cost technology for interrupted supply of power," the experts said.
For supply of biomass, weeds, water hyacinth would be collected locally by villagers and mixed with cow dung so that anaerobic process can start to produce methane, which is a biogas.
"Hydrogen is also produced similarly but in a very small quantity. Usage of hydrogen would be a small component as there are issues with storing hydrogen which requires large space," Chaudhuri said.
The scientists are also training the local villagers on collecting biomass, running the power generation system and maintaining the solar power panels.
"Once our project is over, the villagers would be self-sufficient to use it. We are doing their capacity building also," she said.
Indoor air pollution, which results from burning of biomass like wood and coal, is among the major causes of mortality and morbidity in rural India.
The 2010 Global Burden of Disease had established that in south Asia as many as 1.04 million pre-mature deaths are related to exposure to biomass burning in poorly ventilated homes.
This Lady called Al Ka La m BA abused and insulted Lt Gov Najeeb Jung and PM Narendra Modi by branding Jung as an agent of Modi Govt who is collecting MAAL for the central Govt. She knows what MAAL means !! A former Congi Reptile and now an AAPTARD can stoop low to any extent.
This endorses the fact that Farziwal and his band of shamelessly bold morons do not believe in respecting our constitution and constitutional organs which are pillar of our democracy.
दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने हाई कोर्ट से वह मामला वापस ले लिया, जो उन्होंने खुद को जेल भेजने वाले निचली अदालत के फैसले के खिलाफ दायर किया था। अदालत ने यह फैसला केंद्रीय मंत्री नितिन गडकरी द्वारा दर्ज कराई गई मानहानि की शिकायत के मामले में सुनाया था। जस्टिस संजीव खन्ना और जस्टिस आशुतोष कुमार की बेंच ने आम आदमी पार्टी के प्रमुख अरविंद केजरीवाल को यह मामला वापस लेने की अनुमति दे दी। केजरीवाल के वकील ने अदालत से कहा था कि वह इस मामले को आगे नहीं ले जाना चाहते। इस पर बेंच ने कहा कि याचिका वापस लेने का अनुरोध स्वीकार किया जाता है।
दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री के वकील ऋषिकेश कुमार से अदालत ने पूछा था कि क्या अभी भी केजरीवाल इस मामले को आगे बढ़ाना चाहते हैं? केजरीवाल के वकील ने अदालत को बताया, 'मैं मौजूदा याचिका वापस लेना चाहता हूं।' सड़क परिवहन मंत्री गडकरी की ओर से पेश हुए वकील बालेंदु शेखर ने केजरीवाल के वकील के अनुरोध पर कहा कि उन्हें कोई आपत्ति नहीं है।
27 अप्रैल को पिछली सुनवाई के दौरान केजरीवाल ने हाई कोर्ट को बताया था कि याचिका को आगे बढ़ाना है या नहीं, इसको लेकर वह कोई फैसला नहीं कर पाए हैं और उन्हें विचार करने के लिए मोहलत चाहिए। 17 अप्रैल को सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने केजरीवाल के खिलाफ दो आपराधिक मामलों में अभियोजन पर रोक लगा दी थी, जिसमें एक मामले में वादी नितिन गडकरी हैं। कोर्ट ने दंडात्मक प्रावधानों की संवैधानिक वैधता को चुनौती देने वाली मुख्यमंत्री की याचिका पर केंद्र से जवाब भी मांगा था।
हाई कोर्ट ने केजरीवाल से 23 फरवरी को पूछा था, 'क्या आप अभी भी इस मामले को आगे बढ़ाने चाहते हैं? हमें लगता है कि अब इसमें कुछ भी नहीं बचा है। बेंच ने यह भी कहा था कि केजरीवाल बेल बॉन्ड भर चुके हैं और ऐसे में याचिका का कोई मतलब नहीं रह गया है। इस याचिका में पूछा गया था कि क्या उन लोगों से जमानत मुचलकों और जमानत की मांग करना उचित है, जिन्हें आपराधिक मानहानि जैसे मामलों में दायर शिकायतों पर अदालत द्वारा समन भेजे गए हैं।
Taiwan's Foxconn Technology, the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer, is aiming to develop 10-12 facilities in India, including factories and data centres, by 2020, Chairman Terry Gou said on Tuesday.
The company could spend a "few billion dollars" on developing the facilities, said Gou, whose company's listed flagship unit is Hon Hai Precision Industry.
"A lot of our customers, especially Chinese customers, need us to manufacture ... in India, to make phones, tablets, TVs, as soon as possible," Gou said in an interview on the outskirts of Guiyang in China's southern Guizhou province, where the company already operates a manufacturing plant and data centre.
The announcement makes Foxconn the latest tech powerhouse to set its sights on the world's second-most populous nation. It follows smartphone company Xiaomi Inc, which in March announced plans to begin manufacturing in India.
Foxconn's move comes as it grapples with rising expenses at its 25 manufacturing sites in China, where wages have more than doubled since 2010.
The Indian expansion plans come soon after the company closed a mobile phone plant in southern India, prompting protests from some of the workforce of about 1,700 people. Foxconn did not elaborate on the reasons for the closure beyond citing changes in its customer base.
It was not immediately known how many jobs the proposed new plants would eventually create.
Gou emphasised that in addition to Chinese brands, Foxconn is aiming to cooperate with local companies such as Micromax Informatics, which ranks second to Samsung Electronics as India's largest smartphone maker.
The new Indian plants will be modelled on Foxconn's Guiyang facility, Gou said. That plant is part of the company's push to develop China's less-industrialised interior, which includes a factory producing iPhones for Apple.
No concrete deal has been reached, but Foxconn is already conducting feasibility studies for the investments and Gou said he hopes to sign a contract by the end of this year.
The dam is a 260.5 metres (855 ft) high rock and earth-fill embankment dam. Its length is 575 metres (1,886 ft), crest width 20 metres (66 ft), and base width 1,128 metres (3,701 ft). The dam creates a reservoir of 4.0 cubic kilometres (3,200,000 acre·ft) with a surface area of 52 square kilometres (20 sq mi). The installed hydrocapacity is 1,000 MW along with an additional 1,000 MW of pumped storage hydroelectricity. The lower reservoir for the pumped-storage plant is created by the Koteshwar Dam downstream.
The Tehri Dam and the Tehri Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Power Plant are part of the Tehri Hydropower Complex which also includes the 400 MW Koteshwar Dam.Power is distributed to Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Delhi, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Chandigarh, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. The complex will afford irrigation to an area of 270,000 hectares (670,000 acres), irrigation stabilization to an area of 600,000 hectares (1,500,000 acres), and a supply of 270 million imperial gallons (1.2×106 m3) of drinking water per day to the industrialized areas of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The total expenditure for this project was 1 billion U.S. dollars. The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH),a cost benefit analysis was commissioned and was concluded that the construction cost of the dam twice the projected benefits.
The sane profession of Journalism is being abused,insulted and humiliated by these News Traders working for News Trading houses. Continuously for last so many years, these news traders have been maligning NAMO under the vicious campaign at the behest of their masters for the reasons well known to all.
Abhigyan Prakash is vigorously pursuing this agenda assigned to him by his masters. He leaves no stone unturned to abuse, insult and humiliate Modi Govt and his face tells volume about it. It can be seen while he conducts the debates. The channel assures him full support and the experts are well known for Modi bashing who are frustrated trolls and well known to all of us.
: In a self-published tell-all book, former Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) chairman Pradip Baijal has alleged that the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh warned him of "harm" if he didn't cooperate in the 2G case.
Baijal, who was probed for several years for his role in the 2G scam and disinvestment of properties (he was disinvestment secretary when Laxmi Vilas Palace Hotel was sold to Bharat Hotels in 2002), claims UPA II ruined his reputation to divert corruption charges against its coalition government.
Baijal writes that bureaucrats like him were "damned if you do, damned if you don't". "I had warned many in UPA II that all enquiries against me and others, would lead back to the PM, as he had indeed approved the actions of ministers and ministries in his government. This is precisely what was proved later. The actions of Dayanidhi Maran/(A) Raja/coal minister were approved by him, and he is equally culpable for all the losses computed by the CAG," says Baijal in his book 'The Complete Story of Indian Reforms: 2G, Power and Private Enterprise - A Practitioner's Diary', exclusively accessed by TOI.
In a chapter titled 'How the problems began', Baijal claims that he expressed his misgivings in 2004 to the then PM over Dayanidhi Maran being appointed as telecom minister as it was a clear case of conflict of interest since Maran was a broadcaster and TRAI had been appointed as a broadcasting regulator in 2004. ".......the PM dismissed the concerns with the specious argument that there was no conflict of interest since TRAI was an independent regulator and I&B and telecom were separate ministries," states Baijal, adding that "Singh appointed two committees in his office - one headed by him and the other a subordinate committee, headed by principal secretary to PM. Maran protested against these committees, and directed his officers not to attend them".
Baijal claims Maran told him that he was "Prime Minister, Telecom" and would take all decisions on telecom. "He warned that I would come to severe harm if I did not comply with his instructions. He was proved right, since I did face severe hardships later," says Baijal.
On Maran allegedly instructing Baijal at their first meeting after taking over not to submit the Unified Service Licensing recommendations of the previous NDA government, Baijal writes, "...The PM also told me to cooperate with my minister in the coalition government he headed, since non-cooperation could compromise his government".
In a separate chapter, Baijal refers to the alleged warning from Singh: "They (CBI) had warned me in each case (cases related to 2G scam and disinvestments) that I would be harmed if I didn't cooperate. Incidentally, this was exactly what the eminent economist Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) had told me would happen if I did not cooperate in their scheme of things in the 2G case."
Baijal claims he didn't listen to Singh and Maran on the report/recommendation (on Unified Licensing). While praising the NDA government for the measures it took to reform the telecom sector in 2003 in the book, he says the Unified License approved by the NDA government increased competition in India, and brought down mobile tariffs. "Had I agreed to their (Manmohan Singh and Maran) suggestions and not given the report, the 2003 special regime would have continued and UPA would have held NDA or TRAI (including me) responsible for the 2G scam. The PM would not have accepted his responsibility, just as he shirked responsibility in Coalgate scam," adds Baijal.
Baijal also talks about a meeting between industrialist Ratan Tata and Maran when he was minister of telecom. "In 2004, after a routine meeting, Ratan Tata told me that he was being threatened by Dayanidhi Maran that unless he accepted the merger of Tata Sky with Sun TV, he would ruin him. Ratan Tata refused to cooperate," claims Baijal.
Baijal also alleges that UPA government removed important files from TRAI and telecom ministry to hide its wrongdoings when scandal hit the headlines in 2009-2010.
