India looks to Germany for renewable energy technology
New Delhi: India Tuesday sought German's cooperation in advanced technology in grid integration of renewable energy and rooftop solar panels in urban areas.

Speaking at a workshop here, New and Renewable Energy Secretary RP Watal said the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-17) proposals seek a capacity addition of 30 GW, of which 25 GW is expected to come from wind and solar energy.

"Wind and solar are location-specific and not distributed uniformly. At present, renewable electricity generated is absorbed within the state and grid balancing issues limit the absorption of such electricity to a certain limit," he said.

Alok Srivastava, joint secretary in the new and renewable energy ministry, said that Germany possesses advanced technology in grid integration of renewable energy and rooftop solar in urban areas and India is seeking its cooperation to bring that technology here.

The ministry, which is the nodal ministry for all matters relating to new and renewable energy, has achieved deployment of 27 GW of grid-connected renewable energy by February 2013, he added.
