3. Small Hydro Power Programme
The objective of the SHP scheme is to encourage the State Government entities and Independent Private Producers (IPPs) to set-up new Small Hydro projects so as to realise the entire 21000 MW potential in phased manner. The immediate objective is to encourage IPPs to start work on new projects of aggregate capacity of 1000 MW, in addition to completing the ongoing projects, so as to reach a cumulative capacity of 6000 MW by the year 2022.
The SHP Scheme will provide CFA/Grant/Subsidy for the following sub-heads:
- A) Setting up new SHP Projects in the private / co-operative / Joint sector etc.
- B) Setting up new SHP Projects in the Government sector along with support for identification of new potential SHP sites, preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) including detailed survey & investigation (DSI) for SHP project site to the Central / State Govt. dept. & agencies/local bodies.
- C) Renovation and Modernization of existing SHP projects in the Government sector.
- D) Support for development/upgradation of Water Mills (mechanical/electrical output) and setting up Micro Hydel Projects (upto 100 KW capacity).
- E) Research & Development and Human Resource Development
4. Bio Gas Generation and thermal energy
- To promote biogas based Decentralized Renewable Energy Sources of power generation (Off-Grid), in the capacity range of 3 kW to 250 kW or thermal energy for heating/ cooling applications from the biogas generation produced from Biogas plants of 30 M3 to 2500 M3 size.
- To process scientifically the organic wastes/ Biomass waste as feed stocks for the purpose of setting up
- Biogas Plants as a source of RE under, such as cattle dung/ animal wastes, food & kitchen waste, poultry dropping waste in single mode or with mix of poultry waste and cattle dung/ goat & sheep dropping, paddy straw, green grass including elephant grass/ Napier grass grown specially for biogas production. Also wastes from rural Industries such as residue /effluents from Agr
- Processing Industries and Food Processing Industries/ Food Processing Parks, Agricultural Farms/ Dairy Farms, Gaushalas and Milk processing effluent from all dairies.
- Creation of biogas plant facilities for Farmers/ Dairy Farmers / Individual organizations in Rural
Salient Features :
- Particularly beneficial for rural and semi-urban areas for meeting electrical and thermal energy demands, particularly for small dairy, poultry farms.
- The applicable rates of CFA/ Subsidy for setting up of Biogas based Power Generation (Off-grid) and Thermal application projects are provided in three slabs of sizes of Biogas Plants and corresponding Power generation/ Thermal Energy generation capacity which varies from Rs. 25,000/- to Rs. 40,000/- per KW for Power and Rs. 12,500/- per KWe to Rs.20,000/- per KWe of thermal energy.
- In all the projects categories, the CFA will be paid on re-reimbursement basis, except for the SC & ST categories and all categories beneficiaries of North Eastern Region States where in the CFA at the rate of 50% of the estimated CFA of the project will be given at the middle of the project execution and the balance 50% after proper completion and commissioning of the project in all respect and submission of all the required project performance data and financial documentations
5. Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission(JNNSM)
Objective and targets of JNNSM in renewable energy sector :
The goal of the National Solar Mission is to establish India as a worldwide leader in solar energy, by using creating the policy situations for its diffusion across the u. S . a s fast as possible.
The Mission will adopt a 3 – section approach, Phase 1 (as much as 2012 – 13), Phase 2 (2013 – 17) and Phase 3 (2017– 22). The instantaneous intention of the Mission is to cognizance on putting
in place an enabling surroundings for solar generation penetration in the usa both at a centralized and decentralized level. – ( Renewable energy )
- Milestones given under para 7 of the Scheme. For release of requisite funds, the State Government will send a formal proposal to MNRE.
- The grant will be managed and released by SECI, on behalf of MNRE, for which SECI will be given a fund handling fee of 1% of the grant released.CFA @ Rs.25.00 lakh (Rs.Twenty five lakh) consistent with park could be launched by way of MNRE to SECI for DPR training of the Solar Park, conducting surveys, etc. Besides, CFA of up to Rs.20.00 lakh (Rs. Twenty lakh) consistent with MW or 30% of the undertaking cost, which include Grid-connectivity cost, whichever is lower, would be launched to SECI on reaching the milestones given underneath para 7 of the Scheme. For launch of considered
necessary finances, the State Government will ship a formal concept to MNRE
Central Financial Assistance (CFA) :
