Fully renewable India in 2050 can take a shortcut to emission-free future
India can function on a fully renewable electricity system in 2050, research indicates. The study shows that developing countries that have an abundance of renewable resources do not need to take the path of the western countries where increasing living standards have been coupled with heavy emissions from electricity generation and other industry. They can move straight to renewable systems and do it cheaply.
Solar air heating in factories reduces carbon emissions
Solar air heating has not received much attention in India although utilising solar energy to produce electricity and other solar thermal energy applications are popular and visible.
But without much fanfare, some industries, particularly those in manufacturing, have been utilising this simple and cost-effective technology. This has helped the industries bring down their fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions drastically
India reveals solar firms to be sampled in anti-dumping investigation
India’s Directorate General of Anti-Dumping & Allied Duties (DGAD) has published a letter revealing which Chinese, Taiwanese and Malaysian solar cell producers and exporters will be sampled in its ongoing anti-dumping investigation.
DGAD noted that it had received a large number of responses from companies based in China and Taiwan and would proceed with sampling by taking the largest percentage of the volume of the exports by the responding parties.
