Solar rooftops for New highrises building in Kolkata

The New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) took a stride forward to turn Rajarhat-New Town into a solar city. It has made it mandatory for all commercial and residential highrises to install solar rooftop systems to meet at least 2% of the buildings' electrical load requirement. According to the plan, all multi-storied buildings in Rajarhat-New Town have to meet around 1.5% to 2% of their electrical load requirement through solar power. The buildings also need to be energy intelligent which will minimize the use of conventional electricity. Regulators, on the other hand, will fix the feed in tariff rate for using solar power. Now, generate solar energy on rooftops to power homes Imagine power consumers turning into power generators. West Bengal Green Energy Development Corporation (WBGEDC) has made it possible with a technology that will help you generate your own personal power and also give the surplus to the grid. WBGEDC has developed solar photovoltaic sys

21st Century Energy Evolution

The 21st Century Energy Evolution "I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that." Thomas Edison Climate change has now become the problem the world cannot ignore. Addressing future global warming, and adapting to it now, will require making fundamental changes to the way we live. To day each country  Energy Strategy set out how decentralized electricity generation could deliver huge CO2 reductions by enabling the convergence of heat and power generation, leading to massive growth in renewable energy production, and providing the cornerstone of a renewable energy economy. Global production of oil, the world's dominant energy source, is expected to peak in the next 10 to 20 years. But of greater concern to many is not when or if economically recoverable fossil fuel reserves will be depleted, but the fact that the world cannot afford to use all the conven
