Tata Power Solar Commissions India’s First Rooftop Solar Carport In Delhi

Tata Power Solar, India’s largest integrated solar company, set another landmark by commissioning an unprecedented rooftop solar project in India – a solar carport on the rooftop of the sprawling 70,000 sqm Unity One mall, a Unity Group endeavour in Rohini. The unique rooftop carport is estimated to set off 438 Tons of carbon emissions annually. Tata Power Solar won the bid in the open tender process fielded by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for multi-level car parking. The carport was inaugurated by Satyender Jain, Minister of Power, PWD, Health & FW, Industries and Gurudwara Elections, Govt of NCT Delhi.

The project has been envisaged under net-metering scheme enabling self -reliance in the energy consumption and production cycle. It enables the mall to receive real value of the energy produced by earning on the unused and excess solar electricity produced. It also cuts down the need to install a second meter or an expensive battery storage system as it is directly connected to the local power grid.

Speaking on this occasion, Ashish Khanna, ED and CEO, Tata Power Solar said, “We feel proud to be associated with yet another milestone solar project for India. It has been achieved by our excellent engineering skills and project management capabilities. After earning the distinction of executing world’s largest rooftop at a single location and India’s largest carport at Cochin, we feel proud to accomplish India’s first carport on a rooftop.”

Tata Power Solar has been consistently ranked number one rooftop player for four years in running (Bridge to India). It is rated a tier-1 module manufacturer by BNEF (Bloomberg New Energy Finance). It has shipped 1 GW modules to over 30 countries – the first Indian company to achieve this milestone.

Battery Boom: Wind And Solar Can Generate Half Of Worldwide Electricity By 2050

Coal is to shrink to just 11% of global electricity generation by mid-century, from 38% now, as costs shift heavily in favour of wind, solar and batteries. Wind and solar are set to surge to almost “50 by 50” – 50% of world generation by 2050 due to reductions in cost. “Cheap battery storage means that it becomes increasingly possible to finesse the delivery of electricity from wind and solar so that these technologies can help meet demand even when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. The result will be renewables eating up more and more of the existing market for coal, gas and nuclear.”

Electrification The Key To Decarbonising Europe’s Economy

Electrification is the key to decarbonising Europe’s economy, according to WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson. He said: “according to the IEA, wind will be the #1 source of electricity soon after 2030, providing more than 30% of Europe’s electricity, but electricity is only 22% of the final energy needed by Europe’s economy. Political momentum is starting to grow for an EU target of net-zero emissions in 2050. To do this we’ll need to electrify heating and transport, where the share of renewables is just 18% and 6% respectively; that has to be the #1 priority”.
