World Class receiving Worldwide Recognition: International Solar Alliance to be permanently headquartered in India; Kudos to Upendra Tripaty, DG, ISA

The International Solar Alliance (ISA), a brain child of India getting worldwide recognition as a premier and nodal body of ideas, innovation in promotion , propagation, Research & Development of Solar Energy. Initially conceived as an exclusive group of countries lying fully or partially between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, is now set to extend its footprint beyond the tropics. The alliance, a world class idea emanating from India launched jointly with France in Paris on November 30, 2015, will come into force and will receive worldwide recognition on 6th December, 2017.

Germany, South Korea, Mongolia and Nepal have approached the ISA for membership with voting rights. The global body will consider the issue in the meeting of its steering committee, which includes India and France, next year.

Indian and French joint diplomatic efforts will see the legal framework of this body come into force on Wednesday. The fast pace has kindled interest among countries which were not originally included in the group of 121 prospective members. Whether the ISA would open its doors even for countries which do not fall fully or partially between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn? According to its first Director General Upendra Tripathy, there was no reason why they could not join the global body as a partner country but whether they'll get voting rights or not was something which would be decided by the ISA steering committee.

If it happens, Pakistan and many other countries outside the tropics will be eligible for entry into the alliance. Though the framework agreement of the ISA has a provision for other nations to join as partner countries, most of them would like to join with voting rights.

In the plan, Musk outlines a public transport system comprised of autonomous buses, that could be smaller and sleeker than current varieties, and that could hold large numbers of passengers and ferry them directly to their destinations.

"Countries like Germany, Nepal, Korea, Mongolia and others, who are outside the tropics, have shown keen interest to join. The steering committee is open to all countries. The committee with India as its chair and France as its co-chair has agreed to discuss it in the next meeting," Opines DG Tripathy.

Energy is time and Time is all about Energy. India coming into the centre stage for a decision making role amongst the tropical countries, will play a pivotal role promotion of Clean & Green Energy and reduce the Global Carbon Emission.

The ISA was conceived by India as there was no exclusive body to address the solar technology deployment needs of solar resource-rich countries located fully or partially between the tropics. Most of these countries are geographically located for optimal absorption of the sun's rays. There is a great amount of sunlight for almost 300 days in a year in these countries which can lead to cost effective solar power. India has contributed a sizeable investment (around $27 million) for the ISA corpus to meet the cost of its Gurugram-based secretariat for the first five years. Read more

With solar boom, renewable sector doubles new capacity in first half: By G Balachandar
With solar power segment maintaining strong momentum, India’s renewable energy sector has almost doubled its new capacity addition during the first half of this fiscal when compared with the same period last fiscal.

During April-September 2016, renewable energy sector added 3,164 MW as against 1,629 MW added during April-September 2015. Perhaps, this is the first time the clean energy sector has added such huge capacity in a half-year period. Read more

Physicists at Jadavpur University have used fish scales from Catla, a popular freshwater fish, to fabricate tiny electric generators that they say could run portable electronic devices powered by pure motion, free from conventional batteries.

They have used the scales, a waste product found in abundance at fish markets, to develop piezoelectric energy generators, devices that produce electric charge in response to mechanical stress.Read more

Sungrow, the world’s largest PV inverter manufacturer, announces the connection, of a 50MW, 1500 volt, power plant to the grid. The power plant has been developed by Sungrow in Datong, Shangxi Province, China, and is currently the largest 1500 volt solar power plant in China. The plant uses Sungrow’s SG3000HV-MV medium volt inverter container, which is a class-leading product with over 99% maximum efficiency. This inverter is designed to be the leader for the 1500 volt market with its unit power reaching up to 3MW. With a specially engineered container design, the SG3000HV-MV is able to save installation time and reduce labor costs. The 20-foot container can bring a number of benefits including the ability to lower system costs and ease of operations maintenance over the long term life of the product. The SG3000HV-MV has received a positive reception from experts in the solar industry and is expected to be the leading choice for the solar power plants employing 1500 volt inverters for the next several years.

“The requirements of a sustainable energy future continue to drive the renewable energy market forward. The energy storage market is expected to be a key area where Sungrow is to expand its business based on close cooperation with Samsung,” said Professor Renxian Cao, president of Sungrow. “Sungrow has always been committed to technical innovation, and we have strong faith in our ability to build benchmarks in the global energy storage market.” The joint partnership has started quickly, with two energy storage contracts being signed at the opening ceremony, with planned capacities of 10MWh and 8MWh respectively. “Sungrow leads the inverter industry with its cutting-edge technology. We have strong confidence on Sungrow’s energy storage system solutions, especially after their announced partnership with Samsung. Sungrow’s product benchmarks have repeatedly proven how their products outperform those made by other companies.” said one of customers signing the contract.

Meanwhile, the one-stop solution employed in this 50MW project is designed to enable the building of high-efficiency, high-reliability and highlyintelligent solar power plants. It is also able to continuously enhance system performance based on the “Solar+Internet” model. This one-stop solution is capable of building a standard O&M platform and promoting automation of the power plant through the real-time monitoring, fault alarm and big data analysis. “Sungrow always leads the inverter industry with its cutting-edge technology, and their product benchmarks have repeatedly proven how their products outperform those made by other companies.” said one spokesman from the local government. “Sungrow is always committed to technical innovation and we will offer better products and services for customers.” said Professor Renxian Cao, president of Sungrow.

Sungrow, the world’s largest PV inverter manufacturer, announces the official start of operations of Sungrow-Samsung SDI Energy Storage Power Supply Co.,Ltd at a ceremony in Hefei, China. The $170 million (USD) joint venture between Sungrow and Samsung is able to provide complete Energy Storage System(ESS) solutions incorporating lithium batteries, Power Conversion Systems(PCS) and Energy Management Systems(EMS), that can reach an annual capacity reaching up to 2000MWh.
