Q: What is renewable energy?
A: Renewable energy is energy from sources that are naturally replenishing on a human timescale. The major types of renewable energy sources are biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar.
Q: What is Bioenergy?
A: Bioenergy is a form of renewable energy that refers to electricity, gas, and products that are generated from organic materials such as wood, agricultural crops, or organic wastes known as biomass. It can be used in liquid forms such as biofuels, in gas forms like biogas or as is the case when the wood is burnt for energy.
Q: What is Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Energy
A: Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a method of generating electricity by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun. Solar cells convert sunlight directly into electricity using semiconducting materials. A single cell can provide only a very small amount of power, but multiple cells can be connected together and fixed in a frame to form a PV module.
The modules can then be connected in series to form a string, and several strings can be joined together to form an array capable of producing scalable amounts of power.
Q: What are the sources of fuel available for the project?
A: Sources of Fuel available for the project are: Sawdust, wood chips, forest residues, bamboo, and agricultural residues.
Q: What effect will the Project have on the environment?
A: The key objective of environmental assessments is to suggest measures to avoid, reduce, and mitigate any potential impacts. Measures will be taken in the siting of the turbines and solar arrays in order to minimize these impacts. Detailed environmental and social impact assessments undertaken over the entire site area identified sensitive areas for both flora and fauna. The design of the project has taken into consideration the results of the findings of these studies to minimize environmental disturbance.
Q: How long is construction expected to take?
A: The Project is expected to be built out over a maximum period of 24 months.
