Sun and wind. Plentiful, renewable and clean. Wind and solar energy continue to increase with the demand for more clean energy in an environmentally conscious society. Wind and Solar Farms are springing up across the country and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) conduit plays a role in distributing energy into a usable power source. HDPE conduit is the carrier and protector of power and fiber optic cables that enables transmission to the substation for distribution. Advances in the extrusion of HDPE conduit now allow the cables to be installed during the manufacturing process to create a system ready for underground installation. CIC, or Cable in Conduit, is available with power cable or fiber optic cable (for command and control) and is especially economical for plowing and directional drilling applications.
The Indian renewable energy sector is the fourth most attractive1 renewable energy market in the world. As of October 2018, India ranked fifth in installed renewable energy capacity. According to the 2018 Climate scope report, India ranked second among the emerging economies to lead to transition to clean energy.
"This is one of the most ambitious renewable energy targets in the world, far more than the targets set by developed countries. Overall, these targets are highly desirable, but will need major reforms in the transmission and distribution sectors and stable policies to achieve," energy and climate change expert Chandra Bhushan told DW.
