India and its Energy Consumer Scenario

India is on its journey towards becoming the world’s third largest energy consumer in the coming decades, and therefore to support such extensive growth, a thrust in energy sector is needed to fuel the country’s demand. It would make more sense to have a market-based pricing mechanism in order to meet India’s demands. As of now, India is the world’s seventh largest energy producer and the bulk of supplies are coming from oil and gas which contribute together about 4140

Essay on Energy, Economy and Environment

“If you wish to bear fruits you must go to your roots.” The core question arises in our mind that society lies in the roots of 3E (Energy, Economy, and Environment). Society needs to keep all energy options open to satisfy the growing demand. The industrial and consumer flow of energy and their effects on the environment is higher. They influence the economic, political, regulatory, and social factors of the country. So that the economy of the country is directly40

Edible Oil Consumption

Waste Cooking Oil: A plausible answer to India’s Fuel Security concerns?

We live in a country replete with contradictions in almost all aspects. Consider poverty and rampant food insecurity that most households have to live with in India. On the other side is the huge consumption of vegetable oils, ghee, palm oil etc., in our kitchens. And this consumption continues to steadily rise with time. We are a nation of food lovers. We love our spices, mithai and curries. We especially love the roadside chat, pakodeandparathas. But never do we realize,40

Bagasse Cogeneration

Working group for biomass sector set up by MNRE

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has set up a working group to review issues that are troubling biomass power producers in India. India produces around 500 million tonnes of biomass which is sufficient to generate 18,000 MW. However, the total installed capacity is at 1,264 MW only. Besides, a number of biomass power plants have been shut as it is not viable to run them.15000 MW additional power can also be generated through bagasse based cogeneration in40
