How India solar plans ruin abbott’s coal strategy

Tony Abbott may well think that coal is good for humanity, but it is going to be hard to convince the Indian energy industry that imported coal from Australia is good for their market. A new report from Deutsche Bank highlights just how dramatic the renewable energy revolution instigated by the Modi government will be. By 2019, Deutsche Bank says, investment in solar alone will outstrip that of coal generation. That, in turn, will have a significant impact on coal imports. […]

New forecast for India solar pv market from 14 gw to 34 gw by 2020 which 240 % higher than previous

New research published by Deutsche Bank has had to adjust the company’s forecast for India’s solar PV market up 240%, expecting 34 GW by 2020. This is up from the analysts’ previous forecast of 14 GW by 2020, thanks in part to an influx of approximately $35 billion from global investors into the Indian solar PV sector.

Green building concept with solar power panels fitted on the rooftop for Punjab Airport

The much-awaited new Chandigarh International Airport is likely to become operational by mid-July, but only for 26 domestic flights; while international flights will take at least a month after that to take off. As on date, only two airlines have been given permission to operate the international flights, but that too would take about 30 days from the day the new terminal building becomes operational due to procedural delays, including decision on flight schedule and sale of tickets. It may […]

Punjab Aims High In Solar Energy 1000 MW by 2017

Punjab, which produces a major share of the country’s foodgrain, is all set to tap solar power in the agricultural fields in a big way, aiming to generate 1,000 MW, up from the current 225 MW, by 2017, Bikram Singh Majithia said. “We are far ahead of many states to get investments in clean energy. Our aim is to tap 1,000 MW solar energy either from rooftop projects or from the fields by 2017,” renewable energy minister told IANS. “We […]


For 12 hours a day, Muhammad Islam serves up spicy South Asian cuisine from a metal food cart near New York City’s Wall Street. A diesel-powered generator powers the lights and refrigerator, while a tank of propane keeps the grill warm. Around the city, some 8,000 food trucks and carts do the same each day, spewing harmful pollutants and climate-warming gases into the air. The pollution problem is playing out in cities across the United States as four-wheeled kitchens increasingly appear […]
