Bio-Energy Summit 2011:"Enabling Sustainable Energy Access for India"
HighLights
 

a)     Mr. Pramod Chaudhari, Co-Chairman, CII National Committee on Renewable Energy & Chairman, Praj Industries Ltd in the course of his welcome remarks stated that India has got large ambitions for developing a strong domestic Bio-energy industry, strengthened additionally by the potential of this sector to positively impact the lives of the farmers. Therefore the Bio-gas technologies whether it is in the form of cooking gas through Biomass digester or electricity generated through biomass gasifier based producer gas engines or direct fired boilers through steam turbines can play an important role in country’s energy security.   

 

b)       Dr. Farooq Abdullah, Union Minister, MNRE and chief guest for the occasion stated that developing India requires energy for economic growth and job creation.  Similar to National Solar Mission, MNRE is working on developing the National Bio Energy Mission which will provide a concerted push for the sustainable development of this sector. Grid parity amongst states is not equal and connectivity to remote locations is a major issue. Government of India is supporting the states for grid up-gradation.

 

c)       Mr.G B Pradhan, Secretary, MNRE in his remarks stated that the most critical aspect in promoting bio energy projects is the associated business model. He laid special emphasis on the ground reality that unless there is a sustainable business model, promoting any technology is tough even though the potential might be enormous.

d)     In the summit panel also  suggested that MNRE and Ministry of Power should interact closely with the “Forum of Regulators” to ensure that Biomass/Biogas tariffs fixation is in context to “displaced costs” of electricity generation firing imported coal/LNG.  CERC norms for Biomass Price escalation needs to be adopted by all SERCs. Generation Based Incentives should be extended to Biomass & Biogas Power Plants, which would be over and above the benchmark feed-in tariff to be adopted by States. Production based subsidy in the form of incentives or excise duty exemption or tax relief should be offered to make biomass based biofuels more viable and sustainable in longer run.

 

 

 
Description

Bio-Energy is gaining awareness as one of the important options for addressing India’s Climate Change and Energy Security concerns. The amount of emission reduction that can be achieved through the use of Bio-Energy varies widely, depending on choices made at each step from feedstock selection and production though final use.

 

With Increasing global consciousness and other favorable policies in various nations, India with its sustainable green policies needs to position it’s Bio-Energy strategy in the global arena with special reference to technologies & investment.

Bio-Energy summit deliberated various approaches for identifying appropriate Bio- Energy friendly policies, adoption of Bio-energy solutions in industry and opportunities for collaboration with research & academic institutions in this sector.

 

The objective of CII BIO-ENERGY SUMMIT was to:

 

a)     To define future opportunities for the Bio-Energy Sector

b)    Inform about Bio-Energy market developments and discuss important issues for Bio-Energy markets such as biomass supply, financial opportunities, sustainability criteria, certification, standards and national support schemes.

c)     To focus on sector specific Bio-Energy areas such as pellets, biogas, cogeneration and small scale heating

d)    Analyse the attractiveness of Bio-Energy markets in India

The summit had the following sessions covering:

a)     Policy & Tariff: future road map for bringing out an enabling policy frame work

b)    Biomass Feedstock & Its Treatment Challenges

c)     Conversion Technologies

d)    Application/Collateral benefits (Micro & Macro) Business Models/Case Studies

DSM, Novozymes, Praj and UOP a Honeywell Company were the sponsors of the Summit
