Govt plans 60% fulfillment of power demands of ports from renewables

Minister for Ports, Shipping, and Waterways Sarbananda Sonwal told the media that the government has plans to fulfill 60% of power demand at major ports through solar and wind energy.

Presently, renewable energy meets less than 10% of the power demand at the ports.

The stated 50% of port equipment would be electrified by 2030. All ports would provide shore power to visiting ships in a three-phased manner by 2030. The ports plan to decrease carbon emissions/ton of cargo managed by 30% by 2030.

India will execute International Maritime Organisation (IMO)-energy efficiency requirements for ships and carbon intensity requirements on all its coastal or international vessels to assist in achieving IMO greenhouse gas reduction goals. The country is providing shore power to vessels with a power demand of less than 150 kW.

India’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under the Paris Agreement for 2021-2030 comprises decreasing the emissions intensity of its gross domestic product by 33%-35% by 2030. The NDC plans to accomplish 40% cumulative power established capacity from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources by 2030 via low-cost international finance and technology shift.

As per the Ministry of Finance’s Economic Survey for 2021, India would need about $206 billion between 2015 and 2030 to execute adaptation actions in chief areas such as forestry, water resources, agriculture, infrastructure, fisheries and ecosystems. It expects to obtain 40% of cumulative established power capacity from non-fossil fuel-based sources by 2030 and expand its forest and tree cover to build an additional carbon sink equivalent to 2.5 to 3 billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030.

India is on track to accomplish these objectives and has already attained a 24.5% share of renewable energy in total established capacity, Sonwal said. India is on the way to a low carbon economy and shipping. The Maritime Vision Document 2030 is a 10-year blueprint on India’s concept of a sustainable maritime sector and vibrant blue economy.

As per the BRICS Energy Technology Report 2021, India will estimate one-fifth of the global renewable energy deployment goal for 2030.
