IEEFA Energy Finance 2016: ‘End Game’ for Coal Imports in India

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Jai Sharda, a Mumbai-based IEEFA energy consultant, said in an afternoon presentation at Energy Finance 2016 that the government of India will probably achieve its goals of doubling wind-energy capacity by 2021 and increasing solar-energy capacity 10-fold by then.Sharda said the rapid rise of renewables combined with policy shifts at the government-owned Coal—including “huge growth in coal production domestically”—will create an “end game” for coal imports into India.He noted that solar tariffs in India have dropped 25 percent in the past 12 months—making solar energy more affordable for more people. He reported also that more than three gigawatts of solar capacity have been added over the past year and that the government is pushing for an additional twelve gigawatts of solar capacity in 2017.“It is not outside the realm of possibility,” Sharda said.

Kolo Toure suspended after failed drugs test

first_imgManchester City have suspended Kolo Toure after the defender tested positive for a ‘specified substance’.The Ivorian, who moved to Eastlands in July 2009, failed a test conducted by the FA. As a result, the 29-year-old is not permitted by the club to take part in any first-team or reserve matches until a legal process has been resolved.The centre-back will therefore miss Saturday’s Premier League encounter with Wigan.“Manchester City confirm that the FA has informed Kolo Toure that an ‘A-sample’ provided by him has tested positive for a specified substance,” said a statement on the club’s official website.“As result of this, he has been suspended from participating in all first team and non-first team matches pending the outcome of the legal process.“There will be no further comment from the football club at this stage.” Source: Goal.comlast_img read more
