Objective of the Policy
To create conditions conducive for the involvement of private sector or public–private sector participation in Renewable Energy Sources based power projects in the State.
The State Govt. aims to achieve a minimum of 10%(i.e. 500 MW )of the total capacity addition of 5000 MW of conventional power to be generated through Renewable Energy Power Projects by 2012 as per Ministry of Non-conventional Energy Sources, Govt. of India’s policy .
Measures to be adopted
Power Generation from biomass
A potential of generation of 1400 MW of power through biomass exists in the State. The State Govt. is committed to exploit this potential.
Power Generation through bagasse co-generation
To harness the potential of cogeneration in cooperative / private sector sugar mills which is estimated to be 100 to 150 MW.
Power Generation through small hydro power projects.
To harness 45 MW of power which can be generated through the water falls available at various locations in canals of the State.
Municipal Solid Waste
The daily availability of Municipal Solid Waste in cities like Faridabad, Gurgaon, Ambala,Sirsa,Yamunanagar, Panipat, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Sonepat, Hisar is between 120 metric tonnes to 600 metric tonnes. Waste to energy power plants or fuel palletisation plants based on Municipal Garbage can be set up in these cities to generate about 17MW of power.
The solar insolation level in the State is in the range of 5.5 KWH to 6.5 KWH per sq.mtr. of area and the State has about 320 clear sunny days in a year.This offers a great potential for using solar energy for various thermal and electrical energy applications in the State.
Sufficient untapped wind energy power potential is available in the State specifically in the Morni hill area of Distt.Panchkula and Aravelli Hills in Southern Haryana.Wind Monitoring Stations are being set up in Panchkula, Gurgaon and Mahendergarh districts to assess the available wind potential for power generation in the State.
