Securing the Energy Future for India

Faster and more inclusive growth will require a rapid increase in energy consumption. Since we have limited domestic resources, how can we meet this need equitably and affordably without compromising on our environment?

Domestic Energy Resource Base can be expanded by allowing Indian private companies to setup their R&D as well as power generation nuclear plants in India.
Western countries are doing all this. Why can't we? There will be no security threat if they are monitored effectively!

That's an excellent question! Ours is an energy starved nation which clearly hinders our development. As we can see, most of our expenditure goes into purchasing crude oil etc. from abroad. We can take the example of Brazil who, very intelligently, have converted their car engines to be compatible with Ethanol !! Surprisingly, India also produces a large quantity of Sugarcane and hence can easily adopt this model.
Secondly, we should tap the vast hydro potential available in the country. I, being associated with power sector, happen to know the fact that India has a mammoth 15000 MW worth of untapped hydro power potential available in the Brahmaputra basin. I think some bold decision to invest heavily in this sector will certainly help the country in the long run !

India must be willing to dream big and most importantly be open to ideas based on how other successful nations have done.
The pdfs from the following link shows tiny Abu Dhabi's economic vision for 2030.
Perhaps we can copy some ideas from them.

I agree there is serious support required for R&D in this field we don't need to look at large scale power plant since they involve other issues related to transmission and other. instead a compact systems like recent innovation success /stories a) http://www.hyperionpowergeneration.com/product.html
b) http://www.bloomenergy.com/products/architecture/

More important we need to understand is to accept such innovations and start enforcing the usage immediately by public and pvt. sectors.

Unless anyone buys it development and enthusiasm of R&D will decrease.

Small scale power plants will reduce the usage and consumption of natural resources mostly used in large scale thermal plants like coal, crude oil.

1. Private investment in renewable energy is dependent on state specific policies. The centre, state government, technology and capital, all have to come in sync to boost up further investment in renewable power like Wind, Hydro, Solar and Biomass power to capture the complete potential of India. Also, National level "power potential" mapping should be done comprehensively

2. Local energy generation and distribution should be encouraged. Necessary support - implementation/operation should be provided for private initiatives, at least in the beginning.

When we look at expanding the domestic energy resource base it need only be R&D by public and private enterprises.

Since India is primarily a rural country we should look at ways to utilize the locally available energy good to generate the energy needed for the village / home / community. I believe going Biogas way in place of LPG would go long way of building sustainable domestic energy base in India and also reducing the imports.

This can be also extended to urban area particularly by making biogas plants mandatory for colonies / skyscrappers / new townships / independent houses.

Supporting the above statement please find below the link for biogas plant build by institution called Appropriate Rural Technology Institute (ARTI) , Pune, which can generate gas in 8 hours and cost effective and may be given subsidy here which would work out given the fact for its long lifetime.

I am not a proponent of the above technology, I just feel this would be good technology to work with.

Regards,
Aditya Deshpande

Interesting Suggestions from enerybody.

I wonder why we cannot convert all our solid and municipal waste into energy. Technology is available, waste is available. Only willingness to do so is missing.

• Small power projects should be encouraged.
• Ideas like gobar gas, solar cookers, and wind mills should be pursued with greater zeal.
• Energy audit should be made compulsory for large consumers.

Green energy like Wind,solar,bio diesel should be promoted in rural India to expand domestic energy as well as to achieve inclusive growth.The govt.can give subsidies for people who invest in bio diesel and wind ,solar power generation.
Co-generation plants in sugar industries should be encouraged to promote private participation.
