Green Business en Asie a la CCIP

Apres l'ADEME a Pondicherry, Chennai et Delhi, la CCIP joue le match retour et fait intervenir un interessant panier d'experts et d'experiences le 5 avril a Paris, pour evoquer le potentiel des clean tech en Inde!

L'incontournable EIEBG est bien sur de la partie! 

 

Solaire - comme quoi, parfois ca marche!

Lu sur le site de l'Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), une bonne source de veille sur l'Inde en general.

Solaire Direct Energy India, la filiale de la PME francaise 

Pune: Solairedirect Energy India is in talks with the Gujarat government to set up a 20 MW plant at the Solar Energy Park in Kutch at an estimated cost of 300 crore. "We see ourselves as an independent power producer, or IPP, for this project which will be in Phase-III of the solar park," Solairedirect Energy India managing director Gaurav Sood said.

The company is a subsidiary of French solar major Solairedirect. Sood said the 300-crore project would have 75% debt component, for which talks were on with lenders. Overseas pension funds and others looking for assured returns of 15-16% for the 20-25 years of the project have evinced interest, he added.

Solairedirect is part of the Euro 19.6-billion French energy major Schneider Electric, and is funded by venture capital funds of the parent company and a French bank.

Sood said registration of the proposed project could happen by early next month.

"Initially, the project will be ours and later we could bring in other investors," Sood said. The company could also look at picking stake in the other projects registered at the solar park in the earlier phases, he added.

"We did not participate in Phases I and II, but we are in talks with those who bagged projects then, to take up an equity stake. While we have a huge reference base in France, we need to build reference projects in India. This route allows us to do so quickly," Sood said.

With most solar park projects likely to have a 25:75 equity-debt ratio, banks and financial institutions were likely to look for power purchase agreements (PPAs) with state governments or state power utilities.

Sood said that if they were able to sign PPAs of over 150 MW with state governments, they could even set up manufacturing facilities in each state.

Une double confirmation

Le recent rapport d'Ernst and Young sur l'attractivite des pays en terme d'energie renouvelable confirme 2 choses:

- l'Inde est dans le peloton de tete, juste derriere la Chine et les USA, notamment dans le solaire

- elle fait l'objet d'une tres faible attention! Pas de country report, tres peu d'illustrations... dans ce rapport autrement tres complet!

 

Solaire - des news de la solar mission

Le fameux Ministere des Energies Nouvelles et Renouvelables (MNRE), dont il a deja ete question ici, exprime un avis "satisfactory" et "en ligne avec l'agenda prevu" pour la solar mission indienne.

En 2010, le ministere a sanctionne 802MW de projets solaires connectes et 36MW non connectes. En sus, un centre de recherche photovoltaique devrait ouvrir dans la grande ecole (IIT) de Bombay.

“Successful completion of these projects under the mission would accelerate the process of achieving grid-tariff parity for solar power and also help reduce consumption of kerosene and diesel, which is presently in use to meet the unmet demand,” the Ministry said.

L'objectif reste toujours d'atteindre les 20 000MW d'energie solaire en 2022!

Un site de reference sur le waste to energy

Un sujet sur lequel je me suis peu etendu encore, et qui correspond pourtant a un double besoin en Inde. Et si la gestion des dechets permettait aussi la production d'electricite. En anglais, ca s'appelle le waste to energy et ca recouvre des tas de technologies et de procedes passionnants!

Je ne m'etends pas tout de suite la dessus, mais vous fais suivre un lien decouvert par Jean Michel, consultant de l'impossible. Allez faire un tour sur http://www.almitrapatel.com/wastetoengergy.htm  et on en reparle!
