Save Power – Renewable Energy Conference
Save Power – Renewable Energy Conference is first of its kind knowledge sharing platform in the state of Kerala. It aims at discussion and deliberation of opportunities and challenges by industry leaders and policy makers, to sketch the road ahead for the Renewable Energy sector in the state.
‘Kerala as an emerging market for Renewable Energy: Opportunities and Challenges’
The Renewable Energy market in Kerala is opening up like never before with a series of pro-active steps taken by the Government of Kerala in the last one year. Leading national and international players have entered the industry, particularly in solar and wind. Consumers are also adopting green power in day-to-day life to lower electricity consumption.
An elite panel consisting of policy makers, industrial leaders, technologists and consultants discuss and debate on the broad spectrum of factors that contribute to the emergence of a strong alternative energy market in Kerala and its role in the smooth mitigation of the power crisis. The discussion shall also encompass the growing business opportunities in the alternative energy segments and the support provided by policies and infrastructure.
KERALA'S LANDMARK '10,000 ROOFTOPS PROGRAMME 2012 – 13'
Kerala government's '10000 Solar Rooftop Power Plants Programme 2012-13' is a pioneering step in India's journey in the solar rooftop segment. It is also one of those very few renewable energy programmes in the country that encompass the common man within their purview, emulating the German rooftop solar model from the early 1990s.
A panel consisting of top executives from ANERT and other associated organisations elucidate the various aspects of the programme and create a forum for end consumers to directly address their concerns to the decision makers.
SOLAR – TECHNOLOGY AND POLICY
Kerala has a potential of about 15 GW Solar power and receives an average irradiation of 5.3 kWh/sq.m./day. The rooftop solar potential in the state amounts to 6 GW. Despite the potential, installed solar capacity in the state is less than 1 MW. However, there has been a paradigm shift in favour of solar power in the last few months and the ensuing growth in solar installations has been encouraging.
A distinguished panel consisting of industry leaders, consultants and policy experts will discuss on the various aspects that contribute to the growth of solar sector in Kerala.
WIND AND OTHER RENEWABLE POWER
Kerala is abundant in all forms of natural resources. It has one of the highest wind speeds in the country and the wind power potential of Kerala is speculated to be around 2 GW. It has 44 rivers and a coastline of 600km. While wind, small hydro and biogas are established sectors, other new sources of green power are emerging across the state. There has also been a massive effort by the Government of Kerala to infuse efficient utilisation of energy in homes and commercial establishments to save power.
The panel consisting of representatives from the industry and the government discuss the multipronged strategy for non-solar renewable power and efficient utilisation of energy as a means to address the power problems of Kerala.
