The Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued a detailed proposal for developing solar-wind-hybrid parks and wind parks with a cumulated installed capacity of more than 53.9 GW. According to consultancy Mercom Capital Group, the locations have been identified in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Telangana.
If the site is suitable for solar projects, the park developer may consider developing a wind-solar hybrid park. Each park’s capacity should be 500 MW or more; however, parks of lower capacity may also be developed depending on land and resource availability, says Mercom.
The state government »will play its role in selecting park developers and helping them acquire the identified sites.« The developer will be responsible for developing the detailed project report, acquire land for the project, obtain statutory and non-statutory clearances, and obtain permission from the central transmission utility or state transmission utility. The ministry will provide central financial assistance.
