Renewable Energy Equipment

Definition of Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy Equipment
Renewable Energy is the energy obtained from sources that are essentially inexhaustible like hydro-electric, wood, bio-feedstocks, waste, geothermal, wind, photovoltaic, and solar thermal energy.

Benefits

Renewable Energy Equipment has many benefits that positively impact you - the consumer and the environment we live in.

Importance

In the past century, it has been seen that the consumption of non-renewable sources of energy has caused more environmental damage than any other human activity.

Therefore, alternative sources of energy have become very important and relevant to today's world. These sources, such as the sun and wind, can never be exhausted and therefore are called renewable. They stand out as a viable source of clean and limitless energy. These are also known as non-conventional sources of energy.

National Scenario

India needs to sustain an annual economic growth rate of 8-10% for quite some time to be able to meet its economic and human development goals. Such a growth rate would generate progressively increasing demands for energy. To sustain a growth rate of 8% upto 2032, India would, in the very least, need to increase its energy supply by 3 to 4 times, and electricity supply by 5 to 7 times of today's levels. Currently, the Indian economy is dependent on a complex energy mix. This includes around 30% of non-commercial energy sources that are being used in an extremely inefficient way to imported petroleum products. India's fossil fuels are likely to last about 50 years if the consumption pattern continues to grow at existing rates, and with the uncertain and volatile nature of international crude prices (and possibly supplies) it is important that we look for alternatives to reduce this dependence.

Estimated Potential of Major Renewable Energy Sources in the Country

  • Biomass Power: 69,000 MW
  • Agro residues: 16,000 MW
  • Bagasse : 5,000 MW
  • Plantations: 45,000 MW*
  • Waste to Energy: 3,000 MW
  • Wind Power: 45,000 MW**
  • Solar Power: 50,000 MW***
  • Small Hydro Power: 15,000 MW
  • Biogas Plants: 12 million
  • Biofuels: 20 MMT / annum

Globally it is expected that the half of the energy supply would from RE Sources.

UEC provides Projects and complete technology for Biomass Gasifier, Gasification System as well as Biodiesel. United is working on other form of REs like Solar PV & thermal.
