Indian “Environmental Clearance” Pending for 20 Hydroelectric Projects Totaling Nearly 11,000 MW

Delay in clearance on Energy Projects is well known in India. One has to get large number of clearances especially for Coal Thermal plants. As One American Cynic Put it, YOU INDIAN GUYS ARE BETTER THAN BILL GATES IN CREATING WINDOWS !

From the Fossil-Fuel Center of the World, A Call for Renewables and Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency is the need of the hour. For example: In developing countries enormous energy is wasted in Agricultural pumpsets,lighting(Incandescent,Florescent bulbs).
Each Kwh saved is each Kwh generated.
Today's Wastage is Tomarrow's Shortage.

A New Path to Affordable Jet Fuel?

Excellent. Tequila sunrise: Byogy, AusAgave sign pact to advance agave as aviation biofuels feedstock. Agave and Opuntia being care-free,regenerative CAM plants are best suited for biofuel/biogaspower/biochar and can be grown on a massive scale in developing countries waste lands.

Anonymous:

Why Anonymous,don't have guts to write in your name. You better join elementary school to learn fundamentals. In India millions of hectares are lying idle. I have had been working hard to bring this under cultivation by care-free growth,regenerative CAM plants like Agave and Opuntia.

You Write:
¿ Did you know Anumakonda, that now days with the modern agriculture technics and with the RE tech. every waste lands are good to produce food for the developing countries also ?

Come to India. I can provide land. Show your intelligence and produce food.

You further write:
It´s never to late to learn, Anumakonda, and it´s time to realise that you are siting at the wrong desk in the clasroom. Your desk is not the one on the front of all the others.
Stand up and show up your big belly, or are you ashame that you´ve been eating other´s people food ? Aren´t you from a country where teens of millions of indians are dieing every year because of no food, and several hundreds millions of indians are starving ?

THIS IS BULLSHIT. I don't know how the Editor allows this type of nonsense published under Anonymous. If one has guts,let him write in his name. This Anonymous publishing is by Cowards. I can challenge you Anonymous for an open discussion and I can put you in your proper place exposing your ignorance if not your foolishness.

THERE ARE 11 Mistakes in your comment? That is why you are writing as ANONYMOUS. I can teach you good English free. Don't write stupid things . Renewable Energy World is a respected magazine. For Heaven's sake don't spoil its name with your rubbish.
LET NOBLE THOUGHTS COME TO US FROM EVERY SIDE. I only pity your IGNORANCE. God Bless you !?

Still Anonymous you coward. Clean accumulated CLAY in Your Brain. Start from Elementary school to learn English. Eat Fresh vegetables to get energy. You yourself is a waste,there cannot be further waste.

A New Path to Affordable Jet Fuel?

STEVE FRAZER:

I entirely agree with you STEVE FRASER:
“Bio-fuels are the future of air, sea and land transportation. We need to focus on bio-fuels at extreme large scale. It is the only scalable, environmentally friendly, economically viable and truly sustainable solution we have to petroleum on the table today.”.
Developing countries are in an advantage to go in for Bio
energy(Biofuel/Biogaspower/Biochar) since they have vast waste lands. For example in India: There are millions of square km of waste lands. Thanks to the nature, there are plants which thrive with less water, regenerative and CAM plants like Agave and Opuntia. Crassulacean acid metabolism, also known as CAM photosynthesis, is a carbon fixation pathway that evolved in some plants as an adaptation to arid conditions.In a plant using full CAM, the stomata in the leaves remain shut during the day to reduce evapotranspiration, but open at night to collect carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 is stored as the four-carbon acid malate in vacuoles at night, and then in the daytime, the malate is transported to chloroplasts where it is converted back to CO2, which is then used during photosynthesis. The pre-collected CO2 is concentrated around the enzyme RuBisCO, increasing photosynthetic efficiency. In other words these CAM plants act as Carbon Sink.
Mexico is pioneer in this. The country has quietly positioned itself to become a potential leader in biofuel production as scientists develop a second generation of fuels derived from sources that don't compete for arable land or with food.
Infact I suggested to our Government to allot waste lands of about 5 hectares each to unemployed youth(by giving training in agricultural methods). Ten such people can form a co-operative. They can raise fast growing, regenerative,care-free growth CAM plants like Agave and Opuntia. Biogaspower/biofuel/biochar plants can be set up locally. Biogas for cooking can also be supplied through pipes. This will reduce the pressure on LPG which is very much subsidized by the Government. This will solve the problem of Food Vs fuel to some extent. This will provide employment to youth besides bringing in waste lands under cultivation. Just as we have SEZ(Special Economic Zones),we can also start YEZ(Youth Economic Zones).

Brian Donovan:

You say ,'Solar is 20-50 times more efficient at turning sun into electricity'. Though everybody agrees that solar and wind have much higher efficiency in converting solar insolation into electricity but not the figure you quote. Even the range(20 - 50 times) is not realistic. Figures should be nearer that too when you are quoting efficiency. For example solar PV is far less efficient that Wind power.

On the other hand Biofuel/biogaspower and biochar make sense to be promoted in developing countries vast waste lands. Instead of keeping the land idle,useful care-free growth,regenerative CAM plants like Agave and Opuntia can be grown on a massive scale to supply energy locally.
There is the problem of dust on the solar panels in regions like Rajasthan,India which experiences dusty storm LOO. These desert regions lack water. One area that needs to be studied thoroughly is the effect of fast travelling sand particles striking the smooth solar PV Panels. On the other hand Wind energy is more matured and India occupies the fifth position in the world. Wind Turbines are rugged and need little maintenance compared to solar.Wind turbines are more efficient in harnessing energy compared to Solar PV.

In summary,Renewables being intermittent,all have a major role to play in supplementing the conventional energy.
Here is an excellent discussion on Renewables and their role by Experts:
