India May Decide on Solar Dumping Case Next Week: SIPPA

India May Decide on Solar Dumping Case Next Week: SIPPA | Kleandex - Discovering Smart Technologies | Scoop.it
India may decide next week whether to impose duties on imports of solar equipment, according to the country’s Solar Independent Power Producers Association lobby.

A deadline for submissions to a government study on imports was extended to today, said Jagdish Agarwal, secretary of the group representing project developers opposed to tariffs that would raise building costs. The original deadline was July 25.

China Wind Industry and Power Integration | The Energy Collective

China Wind Industry and Power Integration | The Energy Collective | Kleandex - Discovering Smart Technologies | Scoop.it

Wind is China’s fastest growing renewable energy resource. In 2012, 13 gigawatts (GW) were added to the system, and incremental wind electricity production exceeded coal growth for the first time ever. In the same year, unused wind electricity hit record highs while wind not connected to the grid was roughly half the size of Germany’s fleet. China’s is perhaps the largest yet most inefficient wind power system in the world.

 

As a variable, diffuse and spatially segregated energy resource, wind has a number of disadvantages compared to centralized fossil stations. These unavoidable limitations are not unique to China, though they are magnified by its geography. In addition, as I outlined in a previous post, coal has uniquely shaped China’s power sector development and operation; these also play a role in limiting wind’s utilization. Eyeing ambitious 2020 renewable energy targets and beyond, policy-makers and grid operators are confronting a vexing decision: continue the status quo of rapidly expanding wind deployment while swallowing diminished capacity factors, or focus more on greater integration through targeted reforms.

 

Unlike other countries with varying political support for renewable energy, wind in China enjoys a privileged status. A well-funded feed-in-tariff (FIT) and other government support since 2006 encouraged an annual doubling of wind capacity for four consecutive years, followed by 10-15 GW additions thereafter. Wind projects are typically far from city and industrial centers where electricity is needed, however, and transmission investments to connect to the grid did not keep up pace. This remarkable gap left turbines – as many as a third of them in 2010 – languishing unconnected, unable to sell their electricity.

China's wind industry and power integration fall under the category of area/geography. This article is very interesting because it describes how much china uses and needs the wind industry. China has the largest but most inefficient wind power system in the world 

So now we can understand their struggle and need for help.

The idea of an “artificial leaf” sounds simple enough: Take a small, cheap, light-collecting device the size of a typical leaf, dunk it in a quart of water, and use solar energy to generate enough hydrogen gas for powering a small fuel cell.
