India planning 1GW floating solar project in Madhya Pradesh

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Recharge:The state of Madhya Pradesh is planning a 1GW floating solar array that would be the world’s largest, according to reports from India.The floating solar plant is planned for India’s largest reservoir on the Indira Sagar Dam in Madhya Pradesh, in central India, said the Times of India, quoting the state’s renewable energy minister. “We have done preliminary studies and now [the] World Bank is preparing feasibility reports,” Manu Shrivastava told the newspaper.A 1GW plant would dwarf the world’s current largest floating PV array, a 150MW project in Anhui, China.Development would cost around 50bn rupees ($700m), according to Shrivastava, who hopes work on the project can start in about 8 months. The Madhya Pradesh would act as offtaker for 200MW from the plant, the report said.Floating solar arrays are an increasingly attractive option for large-scale PV deployment at reservoirs and alongside hydropower facilities, especially where land use is constrained elsewhere, according to a World Bank report on the sector published last year.About 1.1GW of floating solar was in place globally by mid-2018, the World Bank said.More: India plans world’s largest floating solar power plant at 1GW India planning 1GW floating solar project in Madhya Pradeshlast_img read more

Klinsmann: No problem with Donovan

first_imgJurgen Klinsmann had nothing but praise for Landon Donovan despite the veteran’s previous criticism of the United States coach.The USA are preparing to face the Czech Republic in an international friendly on Wednesday, but a tribute match against Ecuador has been organised for Donovan next month. Though, Klinsmann was forced to dismiss suggestions of “awkwardness” between the pair after Donovan openly criticised the German, who overlooked the USA’s all-time leading goalscorer for the World Cup. Donovan was also scathing of Klinsmann’s tactics during the World Cup in Brazil, however the 32-year-old has been presented with one last international swansong as he prepares to retire at the end of the MLS season – called up for the USA’s friendly with Ecuador in Connecticut on October 10. Speaking to reporters in Prague on Tuesday, Klinsmann said he had no problem with the Los Angeles Galaxy forward. “It’s not awkward at all for me,” said Klinsmann.”As a player, obviously he deserves every piece of recognition for an amazing career. [He’s] done so much for the national team program. It’s a pleasure to give him that farewell match and give him that recognition.”   Klinsmann added: “I decided the players in his position, whether it is forward or midfielder or whatever, are just ahead of him. “That he is upset about that decision and not going to the World Cup is, for me, a good reaction. It means he cares. “That he’s made some statements that he’s not content, sees it differently, that’s legitimate and that’s totally fine with me.”last_img read more
