Renewable Energy

  1. Objective:

To explore and optimally develop renewable energy resources in the State so as to meet the electricity demand in future and to save electrical energy through energy efficiency measures and Demand Side Management.

Functions:-

  • Explore renewable Energy potential of the state.
  • Develop and integrate efforts to connect Renewable Energy resources to the grid.
  • Reduce demand by Demand Side Management (DSM) Activities.
  • Reduce losses by Supply Side Management.
  • Implement Renewable Energy Projects.
  • Implement Energy Savings programs
  • Explore and Develop innovative idea in Power.

Present Activities

 

 

(a) Renewable Energy Projects.

 

  • Identify viable and beneficial renewable energy projects (Colony solar projects ( Agali model), District wise solar projects), customer roof top solar projects and prepare DPR for submission to Central and State Governments for approval and financing.
  • Tendering and awarding of renewable energy projects and innovation works.
  • Distributed Decentralized Generation Projects and sustainable micro grids – design and implementation.
  • Other projects (SMART GRID, Solar park etc).

 

(b) Innovation

 

  • Screening, Selection, Development and implementation of innovative ideas in renewable energy and energy savings sector from the public to mentor and handhold them to realise their projects, with the aid of Innovation fund from the Govt.
  • Selection, research and development of innovative ideas in Solar, wind and other Renewable Energy power generation sector in scale suitable for KSEBL to adopt the same.
  • Development of innovative and research projects related to sustainable energy to supply quality electricity to the backward and sensitive colonies/ communities.
  • The ideas has to be submitted before the CE(REES) or Innovation Group under CE(REES). The idea will be evaluated by a panel of experts, and the innovator will be called for a pitch presentation before the panel of Experts.

 

The project proposals are divided in to three categories:

 

  1. ideation stage - done to prove the idea /concept only - upto Rs 75,000/-

  2. Pilot project - after ideation to evaluate potential, feasibility, performance - upto Rs.15,00,000/-

  3. Commercialisation - after piloting successfully - upto 50,00,000/-
