ITPI is proud to be a member of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).The IGBC was formed in 2001 with a vision “To enable a sustainable built environment for all and facilitate India to be one of the global leaders in the sustainable built environment by 2025”. The council is focused to promote “sustainable concept” through several of its initiatives such as developing new green building rating programmes, certification services and green building training programmes.
ITPI has been felicitated by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) through certificate of appreciation, for its support and contribution to the UNDP-GEF project of Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings. The function, held on 22nd January, 2016, was organized to recognized the ECBC Master Trainers and launch the National Energy Benchmarks for Commercial Buildings.
ITPI organized a 10-day training program for delegates from Afghanistan as a part of the GIZ project supporting renewable energy development in Afghanistan. The program included guidance on solar PV systems installation, Quality Control Testing, Solar assessment software, and visit to solar panel manufacturing facility. The delegates were offered hands on experience on several solar PV equipment in laboratories and sites in and around Delhi. The trainees had also attended ‘Technical EDP training’ on solar energy by NIESBUD (The National Institute for Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development). The final training on softwares for solar resource assessment, solar irradiance data sources, analysis and modeling, and solar PV designing using PVsyst and PVgis was provided by ITPI officials.
ITPI is proud to be a member of CTCN- Climate Technology Centre and Network. CTCN is an active promoter of environment friendly technologies in the developing countries, modified as per their requirements. The organization, being a part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism, is specifically involved in availing customized technology solutions and capacity building to meet the low carbon goals of the developing economies. Moreover the flexible policy, legal, and regulatory framework advisories offered by CTCN enable such emergent nations to mitigate the climate risks attached with tools and technologies employed in their industrial and commercial processes.
ITPI has been engaged in developing renewable energy (RE) sector in Afghanistan since 2014. It supported drafting of national RE policy and strategy for its implementation, with support from GiZ. ITPI has been given the opportunity by Asian Development Bank (ADB) to support renewable energy growth in Afghanistan, specifically in developing the RE roadmap for Afghanistan and design a few RE projects including technological, financial, commercial, social aspect and risks in such projects.
ITPI conducted a pre-feasibility study on land neutral photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Kerala, as the local partner to GOPA-International Energy Consultants GmbH, on behalf of KfW.
Post commissioning of India’s first floating photovoltaic power plant on Kolkata waters and canal-top solar power plant in Gujarat, Kerala is understood to be a suitable spot for development of pipeline of several land neutral PV projects with an accumulated capacity of 200 MW or more. Prefeasibility study for both floating PV and Canal top PV systems was undertaken to confirm the parity between such PV systems and Kerala conditions in terms of its temperature, soil, water, etc. Potential risks and challenges attached with land neutral technology deployment such as corrosion, impact on aquatic life, transportation mode, and several others were identified and suggestions to mitigate the same were given.
Continuing with its work to support the development of Offshore Wind Power market in India from 2013, the company in 2015 is set to supply its expertise for offshore specific tools and guidance to strengthen its growth. The project led by ITP UK, entails devising strategies for offshore wind power project development, conducting financial assessment, and outlining methodology and process of tendering of upcoming offshore wind projects in India.
Mark Leybourne, Senior Engineer IT Power participated as a speaker at two separate sessions in the Renewable Energy Global Investors Meet and Expo (RE-INVEST) 2015, organized at the New Delhi, from 15th – 17th February 2015. He was a member of the UK delegation to the RE-INVEST conference, led by Baroness Verma, Minister of Energy & Climate Change. The Sessions – ‘Grid Connected Wind Power with Focus on Offshore’ and ‘Future of offshore lies in Gujarat’ on day 3 of the event was attended by various experts and policy makers related to the offshore wind industry. IT Power was technical partner to both the sessions.
