How about Green Energy for Uttarakhand?

Dr Nitin Pandey

People in Europe and US have the option of choosing between “brown” and “green” electricity. Electricity produced from polluting sources like fossil fuels, dams and nuclear power plants is “dirty” or “brown” electricity; while electricity produced from renewable, non-polluting and environmental friendly sources like Wind, Sun, Micro Hydro electric projects and waves is “Green Electricity”.

Burning of fossil fuels in Thermal Power Plants causes global warming and premature deaths of over 4million people annually by releasing Carbon dioxide into atmosphere. Large Dams are harmful to environment and lead to displacement of population. Nuclear Plants produce radioactive waste which decays after 10,000 years.

“When the winds of change blow, some build walls other build Windmills”—Chinese Proverb. Unlike the Middle Ages when they were first used, Modern Windmills are long lasting (20yrs), energy efficient and financially viable, paying back in 3-5 months of operations. Best located in Windmill Farms on shorelines, hilltops, mountain ridges or gaps, they require around 0.1sq.km/ MW land out of which 99% can be used as farmland/forest. Since wind speed is variable, their output needs supplementation. Newer Windmills include Wind Amplified Rotor Platforms (WARP) which looks like a stack of wheel rims without any blades and Flying Windmills (Gyromills) which resemble a cross between a helicopter and kite and flying at 15000feet generate 27 times more electricity which is transmitted to the ground through its tethering cable.

Solar Power is generated from Photovoltaic cells which over the years have become cheaper and more efficient. Their production is limited by short supply of refined silicon. Solar energy reaching Earth every minute is greater than the entire world’s fossil fuel requirement for one year.

Wave Power generates electricity by capturing the energy of ocean surface waves. Geothermal Energy uses earth’s heat to boil water and generate electricity, by drilling 10kms deep tunnels. Geothermal energy below US can fulfill all the world's current needs for 30,000 years. Tidal Power exploits the rise and fall in sea levels using underwater turbines or small barrages which trap high tide water.

India is the 4th largest producer of wind power after Denmark, Spain and Germany. However only 0.3% of India’s energy production is green; Thermal power plants produce 81.7%, Dams 14.5% and Nuclear Power plants 3.4%.

Under United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) over 1 lakh solar lights were installed in 2003 in Karnataka’s remote villages. Costing Rs15000/- each, villagers paid Rs 2250/- as down payment and Rs 300/- as monthly installments for 5yrs to Bank of Karnataka. This was less than the kerosene bill for most people. There was no government subsidies involved. 20,000 similar lights were installed in higher reaches of Ladakh.

Officially 122 villages are unelectrified in Uttarakhand, out of which 2 are in Dehra Dun District. However numerous villages like Bimson in Chakrata have broken down transmission lines which have not been repaired for years. The concept of producing electricity at one point and then distributing it (Central Generation) is not suitable for hills due to problems in laying and maintaining long lengths of transmission lines through forests and mountains. Distributed Generation, involving generation and consumption of power at local levels is more reliable, requires less capital and can be setup in remotest villages.

If we replicate the experience of Karnataka and Ladakh, we can light up hundreds of homes in remote villages. Unfortunately Government emphasizes on making dams to supply brown electricity to big cities. At a fraction of the cost, windmills supplementing solar power can light up our villages. Mountain tops and ridges are ideal places for locating Windmills. Solar lights on remote mountain roads can prevent accidents at night and in bad weather, and solar pumps can pump water from rivers below to water deprived villages high up in mountains. Power Producers of Uttarakhand could adopt remote unelectrified villages to provide Green Electricity. It’s time to exploit Uttarakhand’s green potential.

Dear Sir, Good site to discuss renewable energy options in Uttarakhand. I am associate Professor of Physics in Govt.Post Graduate College Rishikesh. This year I am teaching a 'skill enhancement course' on 'Renewable Energy and Energy Harvesting" to B.Sc. physics students. We are planning to do a survey in Rishikesh city for the use of renewable energy. If I get an information about any specific program running in Rishikesh on renewable energy (solar/biomass/any other), I would send students for survey and case study. I have created a blog on 'Renewable Energy and Energy Harvesting'. http://sumitasrivastava.blogspot.com

Green Roofs or Solar Roofs ?Do you want to contribute to our earth but don't know how? Global wanmrig and the urban heat island effect are making inroads into our homes. This is a serious issue, and we must also have a positive attitude toward mediating this situation.Suppose that you are not a boss of an enterprise; therefore, you are powerless to decide how to reduce air pollution nor recycle resources. Dont be discouraged! You can still influence others and help preserve the earth by supporting the idea of green design. Green design is an internationalidea that has been discussed for many years, and was promoted in the 1992 Leaders Summit Meeting in Brazil. It is called ecological building in Japan and sustainable building in Europe. Home green design is an affordable way to save energy. Two methods of saving energy are the green roof and a roof covered by solar panels. Though each of these two methods have their own advantages and drawbacks regarding expense, working conditions, and function, green roofs are a more effective way to save energy.Expense is a very important thing taken into consideration when deciding between green roofs and solar panels. For a 100 sq foot roof, you need about $25,000 to install solar panels on your rooftop. The system works at least 25 years. However, maintenance of the solar panels will cost $1,000 per year, putting its worthiness into question. Its worthiness depends on your personal electricity usage. You would save a small amount of money if you are living with a big family, but a fact that should be taken into consideration is that the value of money between now and the future fluctuates. Otherwise, you still need to pay the upkeep of the system every year and the charge of basic power to keep it working. Green roofs are priced $1,500 for the same area without the need for maintenance. Then, all you need is a waterproof rooftop, a layer of soil, and a bag of seeds. The idea of Green Roof is much cheaper obviously and has lower maintenance costs than solar panels.An additional factor to consider are the working conditions of each method. Before you choose one of them, you need to consider the weather in your area. Solar panels, as the name hints, is a system that needs sunlight to function. Green roofs need adequate rain to support growth as well as sunlight. Comparing the two systems' working requirements, solar panels need less than green roofs. Though solar panels still work on cloudy days, they will not maintain the same efficiency as they would on sunny days, though the amount of energy provided may be enough depending on your needs. Unfortunately, solar panels are not ideal for windy areas because they might be damaged by flying debris. Though the solar panels and green roofs are nearly equal in regards to working conditions, green roofs are slightly advantageous in that they are working 24 hours a day.Lastly, solar panels and green roofs have slightly differing functions. In theory, solar panels basically reduce your energy consumption. What would be powered with solar electricity are the things such as the refrigerator, the computers, the TVs and the airconditioning, etc. Sounds great, but solar panels efficiency averages only 20% to 40%. Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert its energy to a type of power we can use for electronics. The system loses much energy during theconversion process, and will not be able to power appliances unless sufficient amounts of sunlight is absorbed. On the other hand, green roofs filter rain and air pollutants in addition to keeping the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Sometimes it caneven provide a habitat for birds and some small animals.Choosing between solar panels and green roofs is a fascinating question. Though each system has its own benefits, green roofs are more advantageous to the average person. Solar panels are presently an underdeveloped technology especially concerning energy conversion and are more costly than green roofs. Protecting the environment is an important thing and we must work to solve the problems threatening it.I was going to add a few notes here and there, but the answer was too long. Try to make an original title, and not say I am going to because it's obvious. Also, if I changed the meanings of some parts (some parts were ambiguous), feel free to ignore the change.Hope I helped.

Hi, i liked your article. i am planning to do the rural electrification in the villages of Uttarakhand. it will be very small scale, like home lighting and etc. if you can help me in providing the actual numbers of non electrified villages in Uttarakhand, that will really help me to complete my research and to provide them the right solution for their electricity need. Regards.

my brother sent out these chsmitras cards . the front was him and his wife wearing matching v-necks each holding their babies also wearing .. matching v-necks . phot shopped across the bottom was a tag that said *LagOnnis (our last name) like he is trying to brand our family name and have exclusive credit for the family name . On the back of the card . He has four paragraphs talking about how many vacations he went on this year, all of these amazing job offers pouring in and states He likes where he is working right now very much but still enjoys the amazing job offers that are pouring in. He says despite the economic downturn he moved into a much bigger and better house in a more family frienddly neigborhood . We live in an area where every house cost about on million and up . it's not hard to find a family friendly neighborhood here. When facebook isn't enough he created a mind blowing blog page so you can find exclusive details all about him and his family at their very own website. He also says how his two kids aged 11 months and two years old have a personal chef. Just upscaling everything Like honestly I hope those two infants have a personal chef they would die if nobody cooked for them. They are expecting another child and they said We are expecting a new child Next year our family is going to be bigger and better! And at the bottom they signed they're LagOnnis And didn't say they're names or anything . Just the corporate brand idea they're projecting out. Is this to much? I feel in the economy we are in right now saying how many vacations they have been on, the bigger and better house they moved into while other people in my family are facing forclosures or are struggling month to month, I feel it is just very unsensitive and rude. And, I am not jealous either. I have things I can brag about but I don't believe in this bahavior so I don't do it. What do you think? Also, my other brother installed solar panels on his roof, and this chsmitras card brother took all the credit saying he installed all the solar panels and never mentioned any help from my other brother . And I get it, my other brother didn't help seeking any praise or approval but clearly this Christmas card brother is seeking praise and approval so it is annoying to me .. And . Matching grey V-Necks? Come on. Lifes not all rainbows and butterflies stop faking it.Ok so I was pretty irriated when i wrote this. It's not a million dollar and up area it's more like $900,000 and up but all the money aside . Just the way he is being so formal with his family and talking about how great he is IN THIRD PERSON point of view . So you think it's it's to much? You think I would get away with it? lolI agree with all of these responses .. The one person that said there is a lot more going on then what they tal about Agreed. It seems picture perfect on the outside but deep down inside of that family structure there is clearly insecurity. I agree everyone has one of those in the family And yes Matching V-Necks. What the hell.I have to admit .. I sent out my own Christmas card this year . After getting this years chsmitras card and seeing that it is bigger than last years I decide to send out a card that looks similar to theirs but I am mocking the **** out of them. On the front I am holding my dog, I am looking really good but I am making a funny face and under my picture (I am awearing a grey V-Neck) I wrote See reverse for exclusive details all about me!!!!!! and I on the back I ran all over them I hope next years card either 1) Doesn't come at all or 2) Is drastically tuned down. The back clowns them pretty bad. I sent it to everybody The opening sentence to my Christmas Card is Hello Everybody, I know you all have been waiting for this years status report and I thank you all for being patient. I'mdoing extraordinary. Last year, (despite the ecomic downturn) I went on so many vacations. And when I say so many, it's relly an understatement. lol.

Agree Pandey ji that we will have to reduce our dependence on fossil fuel based power. The good news now is that due to technology advancement, we can now install these micro wind & solar packs (3-5kW) at our rooftops also at a much cheaper price. i have been working in green energy (Wind & Solar) for last 5 years in Gujarat. Let me know if smthg can be done in Uttarakhand also.

Greetings from Canada, wonderful page! I read all the comments! Some observations: 1. Data and infromation deficit. This is understandable. Perhaps army & defence ppl. have more data. 2. Organisation. Ppl. please self-organise into interest groups. Easily, cheaply done through Internet, say a Facebook group etc. 3. Consensus building needed between do-good types Vs. commercial types. Co-operation desirable re: green and specially wind energy. Interesting to see that the profit motive is equally balanced with do-gooders in the comments. Also nice to see positive attitude rather than the usual cynical spanner-in-the-works naysayers. This small and private windmill is a small first step towards one day supplying power to plains customers, and baby steps by Paharis in this area can lead to gr8 enterprise. Don't be shy! Congratulations all. Channel energy into comments section and keep up the comments section buzzing with ideas. This intellectual exercise will yield to action in the hill-tops.

You have a very good point about using solar energy and windmills to bring electricity to the villages of Uttarakhand. But unlike Karnataka and Ladakh, the villagers of Uttarakhand are NOT prepared to pay for this out of their own pockets. They want the govt. to pay, they want things for free. I know this from personal experience as I am a native of Kumaon. So, unless this mindset changes, nothing much can be done by anyone. Anjali Pathak

Hi, We are the pioneer of providing good quality small windmills at a very affordable cost. The savings in installing a windmill to generate electricity in high wind areas is plenty. The area where a windmill can be installed needs to be looked at and studied so that wind as a source of energy can be used to its full potential. We have a team set out to provide some of the best small windmills for these areas. Anyone interested in dealing with a company which puts this technology together to produce a product which is beneficial to all in many areas where power shortage, power cuts are plenty and where a free source of energy is available to us from nature. Come and join us on our mission of being part of this revolutionary idea of using nature to help us survive in a better way. Remember Wind energy creates no pollution,best solution for loadshedding,saves electricity bills. Our company has decided to go green what about you..??
