Draft National Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy 2016 released
17 June 2016 Current Affairs GK: Union Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has  released Draft National Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy 2016 on 14 June 2016.

The policy was unveiled as part of Union Government’s attempt to reach the target of 175 Gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity from renewable energy sources by 2022. It includes 100 GW from solar and 60 GW from wind.

Goal : To reach wind-solar hybrid capacity of 10 GW by 2022

Objectives of the Policy : To provide a framework for promotion of large grid connected wind-solar PV system for optimal and efficient utilization of transmission infrastructure and land, reducing the variability in renewable power generation and thus achieving better grid stability. To encourage new technologies, methods and way-outs involving combined operation of wind and solar PV plants.

Highlights of the Policy:

(i) Wind-Solar Hybrid Systems : These systems will be configured to operate at the same point of grid connection.Optimal and efficient utilization of transmission infrastructure and better grid stability by reducing the variability in renewable power generation.The size of the solar PVs capacity to be added as the solar-hybrid component could be relatively smaller.

(ii) Implementation : The implementation of wind solar hybrid system will depend on different configurations and use of Technologies like Wind-Solar Hybrid-AC integration, Wind-Solar Hybrid-DC integration, Hybridisation of existing wind/solar PV plants along with New Wind-Solar Hybrid Plants.

(iii) Incentives : The Government will encourage development wind-solar hybrid systems through various incentives.

All fiscal and financial incentives available to wind and solar power projects may also be made available to hybrid projects.Low cost financing for hybrid projects may be made available through IREDA and other financial institutions including multilateral banks.

(iv) Research and Development : Government will support the technology development projects in the field of hybrid systems. Besides, support will be provided for development of standards for hybrid systems.

The policy will remain in force unless withdrawn or superseded by the Government. The Government can undertake a review of the Policy as and when required.
