Japan denies Chinese claim of dangerous fighter jet conduct

Japan protested to China on Monday about what it says are groundless accusations that Japanese fighter jets had fired “jamming shells” as six Chinese military planes flew over waters between Japan’s southern Okinawa and Miyako islands. “It is extremely regrettable that the Chinese military is making announcements that are clearly factually wrong,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters. Japan scrambled fighters on Saturday as Chinese planes flew over the Miyako Strait. Taiwan’s defense ministry said four Chinese planes also flew over the nearby Bashi Channel between Taiwan and the Philippines. The waterways and airspace are two of the connections between the contested South and East China seas and the Pacific Ocean.

IITs & other Engineering Institutions had completely Let Down India in Developing Suitable Technologies & Managing Development Programs.

Ø    Why can’t they collaborate in Developing & Promoting CLEAN Technologies –
Solar Rooftops, Multipurpose Dams, Energy Efficiency, Food Processing, Transport, Water Storage & Distribution and Sell them Worlwide?

Ø    These three Technical Universities don’t have even BASIC IDEA of Power
generation in Delhi and India. Delhi demand fluctuates between 1200 MW to 6900 MW this season.

India’s largest rooftop solar tender to see record low tariffs

December 12th, 2016

India’s largest rooftop solar tender to see record low tariffs 
Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a tender for development of 1,000 MW rooftop solar capacity on pre-identified central government/ department owned buildings (refer). It is the largest such tender in India’s fledgling rooftop solar market (refer). 700 MW of capacity is proposed to be allocated under the OPEX route, where project developers shall fund and own the solar systems and sell power to the respective government departments under a 25-year power purchase agreement. Balance 300 MW is proposed to be set up under the CAPEX route. Bidding shall be conducted on a state-by-state basis and all bidders will be expected to match the lowest bid (L1) for the respective states.
  • Government customer segment is likely to play a crucial role in scaling up of the rooftop solar market in India as various central government departments and agencies have made commitments to install aggregate rooftop solar capacity of 6 GW for internal consumption;
  • A majority of systems under this tender are likely to be installed on educational and training institutes;
  • With capital subsidies of up to 35-90% available as part of this tender, we expect project costs and tariffs to reach record lows;
Various departments and ministries under central government have collectively committed to deploying 5,938 MW of rooftop solar capacity for their internal power consumption (refer). SECI is aggregating demand for a part of this requirement and helping in procuring rooftop solar systems. It has already identified suitable rooftops with the potential to install at least 1,000 MW solar capacity. Buildings under the Ministry of Human Resources and Development account for over 70% of the identified capacity. This means that most of the systems are likely to be installed on educational and training institutes. Gujarat accounts for 267 MW of identified capacity, followed by Uttar Pradesh (62 MW), Maharashtra (50 MW), Delhi (46 MW) and Telangana (44 MW).
Bidders are expected to sign PPAs or EPC contracts within 6 months and complete construction within 15 months after the award date. SECI shall provide a capital subsidy of 35-90% of total capital cost ranging from INR 18,750 (USD 277)/kWp for general category states and INR 45,000 (USD 665)/kWp for special category states (refer). In a departure from previous such tenders, the subsidy amount shall be substantially reduced in the event of delays in construction time-table.
BRIDGE TO INDIA expects a very enthusiastic response to the tender both from rooftop solar specialists and utility solar players. In the last 500 MW rooftop solar tender by SECI, tariffs dropped to an all-time low of INR 3 (US¢ 4.4)/kWh for special category states on the back of a significant capital subsidy. We expect tariffs under this tender to fall even lower for special category states as buildings have already been identified and government off-take is more bankable than private sector offtake.
This tender provides a great opportunity for scaling up of Indian rooftop solar market, which has a total installed capacity of only 1,020 MW as of September 2016, or about 10% of total installed solar capacity in the country. Read our blog from last month to understand how we expect the government customer segment to become a key demand driver for rooftop solar market in India (refer).
India’s solar water pump market struggling to take off
In 2014, India’s Modi government announced a target to install 1 million solar water pumps, equivalent to approximately 3,000 MW, for irrigationn and drinking water by 2021. But actual cumulative installed base stood at merely 25,000 pumps as of April 2016. The bleak performance is despite the government offering massive subsidies of as much as 75-95% of upfront capital cost of the pumps. Read More
Solar developers stay away from Tamil Nadu 
Last month, Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation Limited (TANGEDCO) floated a tender for 500 MW of utility scale solar projects. This tender has received limited interest and that too predominantly from smaller developers who have submitted 20 bids totalling just 116 MW. This tender follows an allocation of approx. 1,200 MW in early 2015 where a fixed tariff of INR 7.01/kWh was offered to developers. Read More
Net-metering battles in the US hold crucial lessons for India 
Rapid growth in the US rooftop solar market and the number of net-metering connections has opened a battle-front between utilities on one hand and solar developers and consumers on the other hand. Utilities are arguing against the rationale of giving customers full retail credit for their excess energy and vigorously challenging the current net-metering framework in any states. Read More

Dear Naresh Kumar Sagar, Greetings from Swaraj Abhiyan! Black money is the talking point in the country today.

Dear Naresh Kumar Sagar,
Greetings from Swaraj Abhiyan!
Black money is the talking point in the country today.
The Modi Government at the center is claiming to have conducted the biggest attack on black money. Opposition parties too are clamoring to portray themselves as the principal adversaries of corruption and Black Money. But the truth remains beyond these pretentions.
The Prime Minister called Demonetization necessary and that it shall curb black money. We gladly accepted. He said all would need to tolerate discomforts for few days. We said its ok. We endured all kind of difficulties. Opposition parties resisted, we said lets not oppose for the sake of opposing. Everybody witnessed that the government didn’t do its homework before taking such a major step. But we were still of the opinion that some glitches are warranted in conducting such massive exercises. We accepted, tolerated and trusted everything so that the ill of Black Money in the country may be eradicated for ever.
But now questions are beginning to arise in our minds. Will Demonetization indeed affect black money? Is the government’s resolve to take steps on black money strong enough? Could this Demonetization narrative be a red-herring for diverting our attention from the bigger questions pertaining black money? If the Prime minister would listen to our ‘mann ki baat’, we may be able to examine his commitment to end black money. We would ask:
1. Why can’t political parties be asked the account of their thousands of crores in cash donations?
2. Why can’t parties like BJP, Congress accepting foreign funds be punished?
3. Why can’t the business of converting black money into white through offshore shell companies be stopped?
4. Why can’t people affecting lakhs of crores of bank NPAs like Adani-Ambani and Mallya be locked up?
5. Why can’t the conspiracy to sabotage the ‘Prevention of Corruption Act’ be stopped?
6. Why couldn’t Lokpal be appointed since over last 2.5 years?
People have a lot such questions in mind. They shall converge at Jantar Mantar on 18th December to raise those questions. The same people of this country who gathered 5 years ago at Ramleela Maidan to ignite a fight against corruption. The people of this country who blew the air out of big parties and politicians. The Public, which knows it all.
The nation today seeks a truthful fight against black money and corruption, not a fixed match between the government and the opposition.

Thanks & Regards,
