Reports and Validation-cum-Verification Reports for Biomass Based Power/Cogeneration Projects (2010)

Client: Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India

ITP India carried out this assignment for MNRE with a focus on the establishment of 1-2 MW biomass based cogeneration/ decentralized distributed power projects in SMEs and Model Investment Projects (MIPs) based on biomass combustion and gasification technologies for grid connected projects. Key objective of these projects was to accelerate the adoption of environmentally sustainable biomass power technologies by removing the barriers identified, thereby laying the foundation for the large scale commercialization of biomass power through increase access to financing. The aim of these projects was to demonstrate the viability of new investment and financing models for mainstreaming the biomass power sector and was also expected to act as the “Best Practices” for faster replication in the country.
The tasks undertaken by ITPI were technical and financial feasibility, DPR preparation, establishment of biomass supply chain, and assessing CDM benefits for above projects.
