Asia Report: Toshiba Plans Japan's Largest PV Project

Asia Report: Toshiba Plans Japan's Largest PV Project

India produces about 450 million to 500 million tons of biomass per year. Biomass provides over 30 percent of all the primary energy used in the country at present. It is estimated that the potential in the short term for power from biomass in India varies from about 18,000 MW, when the scope of biomass is as traditionally defined, to a high of about 50,000 MW if one were to expand the scope of definition of biomass. The current share of biofuels in total fuel consumption is extremely low and is confined to just 5 percent blending of ethanol in gasoline, which the government has made mandatory in 10 states. Currently, biodiesel is not sold on the Indian fuel market, but the government plans to meet 20 percent of the country's diesel requirements by 2020 using biodiesel.
