23 2015 2:31 pm Santosh Kumar IFS Director Science and Technology during an Interview with The Indian Express Chandigarh on Saturday November 21 2015 (Source: Express Photo by Kamleshwar Singh) Top News Chandigarh will represent India along with few other states in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) What are the plans of the UT Administration We will showcase efforts of the Chandigarh Administration in promoting solar power and environment It’s a great opportunity for the city How does the administration plan to make Chandigarh a model solar city Our goal is to reduce dependence on fossil fuels for energy needs and limit emission levels to sustainable levels For that we have taken to solar photovoltaic (SPV) power generation reducing 20 per cent of energy needed for water heating in residential and commercial buildings by use of solar water heaters and powering street lights using solar energy So far we have set up a total of 101 rooftop solar panels of 5 mega watt (MW) capacity each in government buildings which also include educational institutes By next year we will set up more rooftop solar panels In 2008 the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) had selected Chandigarh to develop it as a model solar city but the progress has been slow What are the reasons The scheme was introduced for the first time and there were certain apprehensions in the beginning There was also lack of awareness among the general public and staff of the Chandigarh Administration The department was also understaffed The seriousness of administration can be gauged from the fact that despite there being no sanctioned posts experts were hired As required by the government a master plan was prepared in 2012 but it took some time in getting it approved due to technical reasons After the master plan was approved we started making progress which has been appreciated by the Government of India The government also provides us subsidies We received Rs 9 crore from the government in 2012 as the first installment of a subsidy What have been the achievements of the administration so far Under the government category we have been ranked the number one city in the installation of solar rooftop plants So far we have installed solar panels in 101 buildings What are the challenges ahead Funding is the biggest challenge for making Chandigarh a model solar city The Indian government has set a target of 100 MW for Chandigarh A huge investment is required for achieving this target Chandigarh was able to pull it off until only recently For a 5-MW project a budget of around Rs 30 crore is required but we receive only around Rs 10 crore Chandigarh can achieve a target up to 40 MW by itself but beyond that it will have to seek help of the private sector There are few takers for rooftop panels for residential use What are the reasons So far only 80 applications have been received Initially there was no policy which is why people did not come forward In association with the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission we have framed a very attractive policy for the general public Under the policy people producing solar energy can sell power directly to distribution company (DISCOM) at Rs 851 per unit With this hopefully more people will come forward for setting up rooftop solar power panels For the benefit of residents we have shortlisted companies which can install these panels Information pertaining to this will be put up the official website of Chandigarh Renewal Energy Science and Technology Promotional Society (CREST) the nodal agency for executing solar projects We are also in the process of streamlining the process of obtaining the required permissions for setting up rooftop solar power plants Efforts are on for making the entire process hassle-free What is the financial viability of having solar panels for residential use Solar power costs around 30 per cent more than conventional power In future however solar power will be cheaper in comparison to conventional sources of energy We should learn from Germany where the situation is just this A one kilo watt plant there will cost around Rs 85000 I would urge people who can afford to come forward and become proud users of solar power Shelling out around Rs 2 lakh should not be a problem for people who spend a lot on fancy cars and vanity registration numbers What is being done to promote use of solar energy The master plan has laid a lot of emphasis on creating awareness about the benefits of solar power among the city residents especially students In the master plan it has been suggested that an energy-cum-science park should be established in a central location of the city to educate people on the issue In the last few years we have carried out a number of campaigns for promoting and creating awareness about solar power We have tied up with various radio stations newspapers and the Confederation of Indian Industry for generating awareness Are there any subsidies given by the administration in case of solar power The Indian government was initially offering a subsidy of 30 per cent which was later slashed to 15 per cent Now the government is again going to enhance the subsidy to 30 per cent Subsidy is very crucial for attracting people How much rooftop-based solar power does the UT intend to generate We aim at generating 100 MW by 2022 A lot of efforts are required to achieve this target Clarification With reference to the report titled “Urbanisation along Sukhna Lake’s periphery needs check: S S Virdi” published in Chandigarh Newsline on November 2 Tata Camelot has stated that the number of proposed flats are around 1700 and not 92000 as mentioned in the article The report was an interview with former Chief Engineer S S Virdi His response is as follows: “While giving the interview the figures I quoted were picked from another English national daily I have no personal information or bias against the number of flats nor any bias against Tata Camelot My only bias is for the lake I don’t dispute the number of flats” For all the latest Chandigarh News

Anti-Doping Agency (Source: Reuters) Top News The confusing case of Vladimir Morozov and Nikita Lobintsev took a new twist on Tuesday when swimming’s ruling body said despite earlier reports that the Russian duo had not been cleared to compete at the Olympics and still await a final decision Earlier the pair’s lawyer told Russia’s TASS news agency that they had been cleared by FINA after successfully appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) against being banned from the Games by swimming’s world governing body “Contrary to recent media reports the eligibility of Russian swimmers Vladimir Morozov and Nikita Lobintsev to compete has not been confirmed and will not be confirmed until the IOC’s three-person commission to review Russian entrants renders its final decision on these athletes along with the other members of the Russian swimming team” FINA said in a statement “The two athletes filed an appeal to CAS and FINA understands that this Court has forwarded the case to the IOC three-person commission for final decision” The two swimmers have never failed a doping test but FINA banned them following the IOC’s ruling that only athletes who can prove they have operated under a bona-fide anti-doping system should be allowed to compete in Rio Both were mentioned in the McLaren report for the World Anti-Doping Agency in reference to “disappearing positives” -whereby positive dope tests by Russian athletes were destroyed or covered up leading to FINA ruling them ineligible Lobintsev and US-based Morozov were part of Russia’s bronze-medal winning 4×100
