CDM Benefits on Micro Hydro Projects

Uttarakhand UREDA has registered First CDM Project on 3rd December 2010 in state of Uttarakhand for carbon credits. The Project Design Document (PDD) was prepared by UREDA under Small Scale category for availing CDM benefits against the reduction in carbon emission through construction of 29 Bundled MHPs of 3.115 MW capacity in the State of Uttarakhand. These projects are located in the remote districts of Uttarakhand like Pithoragarh, Bageshwar, Chamoli, Uttarakashi and Tehri Garhwal. This project was validated by M/s DNV AS, Bangalore after getting host country approval from Ministry of Environment and Forest, Govt. of India.  Under this project, emission of 8668 Ton of CO2 will reduce to release in environment against the annual generation of 11.17 MU of electricity by these projects.   The executive board formed under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has registered the project submitted by UREDA on 3rd December, 2010. After registration of the project, UREDA will get approximately Rs 80.00 Lakhs annually against 8668 CERs up to 2nd December, 2020 (10 Years). This amount will be shared between the Village Energy Committee (maintaining the MHP’s) and UREDA. The verification of this project by DOE is in progress. The project is registered with the following details:    Project 3853: Bundled Microhydel Projects (3.115 MW) in Uttaranchal, India

Jakhana 100 Tehri Garhwal Constructed Small Hydro Programme in Uttarakhand The energy-development relationship has numerous social and political implications in Uttarakhand, where about 63.10% of the population lives in rural areas and most of them belong below the poverty line. Geographical conditions of the state differ at a short distance. Most of the area is hilly and forest coverage is about 66%. Villages are in scattered manner and household coverage in a village is short. In this situation, either it is not possible to laid grid lines due to forest laws or due to high cost of coverage. Operation and maintenance is also an issue in this pattern. As a solution of this problem- Decentralized Distributed Generation (DDG) Micro & Mini Hydro Projects are suitable and best way to provide electricity facility to the forest fringe and scattered villages. Operation and maintenance of Standalone MHPs can be done in easy manner by local community after a formal training. In the State of Uttarakhand, Uttarakhand Renewable Energy Development Agency (UREDA) is constructing MHPs for remote village electrification as well as for grid feeding. So far 44 MHPs of composit capacity 4.29 MW have been commissioned and more than 300 Villages & Hamlets have been electrified through these projects. Earlier the projects were constructing on turn-key basis but from year 2005, Govt. of Uttarakhand has decided to construct MHPs for village electrification on community participation. For construction of MHPs, tripartite Agreements have been signed between UREDA, Alternate Hydro Energy Center (AHEC), IIT, Roorkee and Concern User Energy Committee (UEC). As per tripartite Agreement AHEC, IIT, Roorkee is providing technical specialized services for construction of MHPs, preparation of DPR etc. and UREDA is providing its services for monitoring, funding and guidance to UECs. MHPs are being constructed with the financial support from Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt. of India. The financial support from MNRE is available as per the relevant guidelines of MNRE. UREDA has commissioned large number of MHPs in the remote area of state where the National or state grid cannot be extended. 44 MHPs of total capacity 4.29 MW has been installed in the remote villages of Uttarakhand till date and another 19 MHPs of total capacity 2.315 MW are under implementation.

Improved Watermill Programme

As per the survey conducted by the UREDA, 15449 traditional watermills (Gharats) exist in working or defunct condition. UREDA is engaged in up-gradation of these traditional watermills for mechanical, electrical and electromechanical use with the financial support of MNRE. Up-gradation and production of new modern technologies specially designed for the grass root conditions of the area are being taken up in a big way so that the productivity of this important section of population gets increased and they get higher returns with lesser efforts. Upgradation of such traditional watermills can be great source of employment generation. The up-graded watermills of this hilly region are an essential and important critical source of energy in remote areas. These watermills not only provide electricity to small areas but are also used for grinding grains. Up-graded watermill produces power up to 5 KW which is sufficient for electrification of 15-20 families within the diameter of 500 meters. Small Scale Industry Department, Government of India has declared Watermill (Gharat) as Small Scale Industry and State Government has exmpted Watermill parts and products from VAT. For the upgradation of traditional watermill State Government is providing a subsidy of Rs. 6000/- per Watermill apart from the subsidy by MNRE i.e. Rs. 1.10 Lakhs for up-gradation for electrical/electromechanical output and Rs. 35,000/- for mechanical output.  District wise Upgraded Improved Watermill Details are as under (Till August 2013) S.No. District             Upgraded  Water Mill Electrical Mechanical Total 1 PAURI    59 3 62 2 Tehri   102 124 226 3 Chamoli 185 113 298 4 Uttarkashi 80 28 108 5 Rudarparyag 47 1 48 6 Dehradun 64 91 155 7 Nainital 90 21 111 8 Almora 36 6 42 9 Bageshwar 55 0 55 10 Pithoragarh 132 18 150 11 Champawat 47 39 86   Total 897 444 1341                  

Ultra Low Head Micro - Hydro Project (UNIDO)  

PROMOTING INNOVATIVE ENERGY SOLUTIONS WITH ULTRA LOW HEAD MICRO-HYDRO POWER TECHNOLOGY IN INDIA Increasing access to renewable energy for productive uses in rural India This Ultra Low Head Micro Hydro Project (ULH-MHP) will demonstrate, deploy and transfer an innovative system for the first time in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, a state that has about 8,200 km of manmade water canals and 400 small falls that are ideal for the demonstration of this turbine system. The key areas of interventions in the first phase of the pilot project are: ·         Installation of the ultra-low head technology to demonstrate mini-grid systems for productive uses, ·         Capacity building and institutionalization in ULH-MHP sector to develop a hub, ·         Identification of business opportunities for replication and localization through technology transfer, and ·         Awareness-raising and working on market/investment opportunities to mainstream this new technology as a new sector. The pilot installation will result in developing replicable business models from the demonstration of ULH-MHP mini-grid system in the state of Uttarakhand. Being an innovative solution to generate electricity at ultra-low head (below 3.0 m) with a discharge of 0.8-3.0 m3/s, the establishment of a favorable environment for the local technology deployment is envisaged. In this project the UNIDO is collaborating with the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, of the Government of India and the State Government of Uttarakhand to identify potential pilot project sites with strong interest and commitment to join this collaborative initiative. The financial support for this project is provided by the Government of Japan and UNIDO, with in-kind contributions by the Indian Government.     Contact HQ:  Mark Draeck, Industrial Development Officer, Renewable and Rural Energy Unit Energy and Climate Change Branch UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), P.O.
