Solar power projects with a total installed capacity of 1,184 MW have been proposed by private developers in Andhra Pradesh.
Global solar energy capacity may reach 980 gigawatts by 2020 as governments worldwide seek to reduce fossil fuel consumption and cut emissions of greenhouse gases, a group of renewable energy associations said.
The government has currently allocated 200 MW of concentrated solar power (CSP) by 2015 and 600 MW by 2019.
E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) has made solar power a clear focus of its Renewables growth strategy. In the next three years, E.ON aims to bring its solar business to the same level of industrial maturity as its wind b
CSIRO has welcomed the award of a $5.65 million grant from the Australian Solar Institute towards three major solar research projects worth a total of $16 million.
The field study is in sequence of a pre-feasibility study performed by the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI), and requires Fluor to offer an abstract plan to take the project to the next level.
DESERTEC, the largest solar power project in the world, intends to implement concentrating solar power, photovoltaic systems and wind turbines in the Sahara Desert.
