Gujarat, India (SPX) Jul 31, 2017


Schneider Electric's modernized solar harvesting technology will help the company to maximize the energy output from the available rooftop space at the Vadodara plant and ensure minimum load on the roof by using light-weight material for construction.

Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has announced the commissioning of a 720 kWp capacity solar power project at its manufacturing facility in Vadodara, Gujarat.

The solar project, built on a rooftop area of 6,000 square meters, covers almost 45% of the total factory load and will produce over 1.05 million units of electricity per year which would help cut power costs by as much as 20-25% annually. Further, Schneider Electric will be able to cut its carbon dioxide emissions by 1,018 tonnes per year, which is equivalent to planting 50,000 trees.

The project demonstrates Schneider Electric's commitment towards green manufacturing in India. This is the second solar project commissioned by Schneider Electric at its manufacturing facility in India. In 2015, the company had installed a 120 kWp solar power plant at its Bangalore unit.

Speaking about Schneider Electric's commitment to green manufacturing, Mr. Anurag Garg, Vice President Solar and Energy Storage, Solar Business, Schneider Electric India, said, "India has set a target to increase the share of manufacturing to its GDP to 25% by 2025 from the current level of 16%.

While this is a welcomed move, there is also a need to mitigate the environmental concerns that the country faces. It is imperative that the manufacturing sector uses energy and resources efficiently and minimizes its carbon footprint. This solar power project is our endeavour to provide a cleaner and greener environment to the community in Vadodara."

Schneider Electric's modernized solar harvesting technology will help the company to maximize the energy output from the available rooftop space at the Vadodara plant and ensure minimum load on the roof by using light-weight material for construction.

Speaking about the successful implementation, Mr. Vivek Sarwate, Vice-President, Global Supply Chain, Schneider Electric India said, "With renewable energy taking centre stage in all discussions pertaining to reduction of carbon footprint, Schneider Electric is totally committed towards supporting the government mission with its expertise in the solar segment.

"The successful commissioning of this project is a testament to our efforts in making our own buildings efficient and is a step towards creating a New World of Energy that is more sustainable."

The Design, Engineering, Procurement and Construction for the plant was done by Fourth Partner Energy, a leading rooftop solar solutions provider with over 500+ installations on Commercial and Industrial rooftops across 21 states in India.

A new optimization model could bring higher solar-power integration
Washington DC (SPX) Jul 27, 2017
Solar power has been established as a source of mainstream power generation across the globe. With numerous installations of photovoltaic (PV) systems for residential homes at or near the distribution site, there is a challenge to balance supply and demand to make these intermittent energy sources reliable. Too little sun means low solar generation and poor PV system efficiency. Excessive genera ... read more
