With the increasing penetration of distributed renewable energy sources such as solar PV and energy storage into the Indian electricity sector, it is necessary to prepare for managing the waste generated from these technologies. The reduce, reuse, and recover approach off ers multiple socio-economic benefi ts besides being environmentally benign. In this article, Akanksha Tyagi takes a closer look at the management of clean energy waste.
MANAGING INDIA'S CLEAN ENERGY WASTE: A ROADMAP FOR THE SOLAR AND STORAGE INDUSTRY
With the increasing penetration of distributed renewable energy sources such as solar PV and energy storage into the Indian electricity sector, it is necessary to prepare for managing the waste generated from these technologies. The reduce, reuse, and recover approach offers multiple socio-economic benefits besides being environmentally benign. In this article, Akanksha Tyagi takes a closer look at the management of clean energy waste.
TRANSFORMING PV WASTE TO A RESOURCE
Growing resource consumption comes at a cost of the environment. As the global deployment of PV approaches terawatt levels in an increasingly resource-constrained world, resource efficiency strategies adopted for PV manufacturing combined with end-of-life high-value recycling are essential to promote a circular economy and transform PV waste into valuable secondary raw materials for other industries. In this article, Karen Drozdiak, Andreas Wade, and Sujoy Ghosh describe how First Solar continues to proactively invest in the improvement of the recycling technology to increase resource efficiency and drive down recycling prices for its customers.
ENERGY WASTE NEXUS: End-of-Life Management of Lithium-Ion Batteries
To become competitive in the electric vehicle field and transition towards full electric mobility, India needs to overcome resource efficiency challenges and create a sustainable electric vehicle ecosystem, which includes securing its supply of rare elements, including lithium. In this article, Mehar Kaur emphasizes the need for domestic manufacturing, battery reuse, and recycling of LIBs.
POTENTIAL AND MARKET OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENERGY GENERATION FROM AGRO AND LIVESTOCK WASTE IN INDIA
India has a huge potential for installation of anaerobic digestion based biogas plants for cooking, electricity, and transport fuel applications in both rural and urban areas owing to the availability of large quantities of animal wastes, wastes from forestry and agriculture, industrial wastes, kitchen wastes, and so on. Over the years, a number of projects of different capacities and applications have been taken up for developing the technical know-how, manpower, and necessary infrastructure. In this article, Sunil Dhingra focuses on energy generation from agro and livestock waste in India.
Commercialization of Compressed Biogas in India
Biomethane is a promising renewable energy option for substitute of natural gas for grid and vehicular applications. It can be easily compressed to increase its utility as compressed natural gas and directly fed to transportation vehicles. With increased awareness, technical knowledge and support, this technology can be applied worldwide for waste management, energy security, and climate change mitigation. Rimika Madan Kapoor, Virendra Kumar Vijay, and Vandit Vijay discuss the biogas production technology from organic waste in India and how it can be expected to grow in future.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO SUSTAIN ENERGY EFFICIENT CULTURE
SUSTAINABILITY AS A FRAMEWORK, APPROACH, AND COMMITMENT
Companies play a critical role in achieving sustainable development and addressing challenges, such as climate change, the exploitation of natural and non-renewable resources, and the impact of humanity on our environment and ecosystem. Sustainability divisions in corporates help enable companies to achieve sustainability targets and reduce their environmental impacts. Hitesh Kataria, Manager in the Group Sustainability division of the Mahindra Group, in conversation with TCA Avni for Energy Future talks about the efforts taken by the Group to utilize waste, tackle carbon emissions, and reduce energy consumption.
RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT
To rid electric grid of carbon, shore up green energy support
Energy Future Magazine Description:
Publisher: The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)
By looking at the technologies, policy decisions, and business ventures that have the potential to overcome energy shortage and our crippling dependence on depleting fossil fuels, Energy Future draws from a deep well of expertise at TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute), India’s leading research institute on energy and green growth. Knowledge of energy security and development is a critical requirement in the modern global economy, and Energy Future aims to educate and inform you about the wide world of energy; its history, its future, how the energy industry works, how it has affected the world, and how it continues to affect you and me.
