Scalable CSP Optimized Power Plant Engineered with Biomass Integrated Gasification (SCOPEBIG)
Under the Indo European Co-operation on Renewable Energy Program, a consortium led by CSTEP along with its Indian (Thermax Limited and Bihar State Power Generation Company Limited) and European partners (Energy Centre of the Netherlands and National Centre for Scientific Research) have been selected to promote development of clean energy technologies for sustainable and inclusive growth in India. Under this, the consortium will design and develop a 3 MW demonstration Solar-Biomass hybrid power plant in Bihar and study the related economic & employment activities. This project is funded by the Delegation of the European Union to India. In co-ordination with the European Union (EU), the project envisages to provide support for India’s national policies and programmes towards growth of renewable energy.
The primary objectives of this project is to:
The specific objectives would be:
Salient features of the Solar-Biomass hybrid plant include:
Roles of the Consortium Members:
ECN & CNRS
The project will be jointly developed and operated by the consortium members during the project period of 5 years on a not-for-profit basis. The total cost of the above project has been estimated at Euros 10,732,332. The project will receive financial assistance from European Union (EU) over five year period up to 80% of the cost of the project subject to a maximum of Euro 8 million and balance cost share will be contributed by the consortium members.
