GRE is investigating the potential for utilization of hydrogen currently being vented into the atmosphere by a Caustic Soda plant, for conversion as a feedstock for power generation.

GRE has completed the Detailed Project Report for a 15 MW Coal-based thermal power plant for a major polyesters manufacturer in Tamil Nadu. The next phase of work for the client will be the implementation of the power plant within their facility near Manali. The project implementation exposure for GRE would be on the order of INR 67 Crores.

GRE has been asked to investigate the potential for setting up municipal waste-to-power projects of 10 MW size in Punjab. Depending on the choice of technologies and the cost factors involved the potential number of projects could be as high as 10 x 10 MW.

GRE is in the process of submitting its Expression of Interest to the Himachal Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd. As a potential partner in a Joint Venture or Special Purpose vehicle to explore the potential for implementation of wind power projects in the State. The initial project is expected to be of 3 MW capacities.

Sevices

The Galaxy Wind Turbine incorporates a number of new concepts that assist in the efficient harnessing of wind energy. It is based on the use of a highly efficient vertical axis wind turbine that allows for effective operation even in light wind conditions. Capitalising on this, the technology has the potential to cover a broad range of applications in remote areas, particularly for remote power generation.

Incorporating extremely lightweight, non-corrosive components, the Galaxy Wind Turbine swivels through 360 degrees so it can be optimally pointed into the wind for maximum energy channelling. High-tech, lightweight composites are used on the specifically designed wind-tracking sail and wind induction system.

The innovative design and well engineered components produce highly cost-efficient energy in a very low wind speed profile, making it suitable for just about all outdoor environments.

Municipal Waste

GRE has been invited by the local administrative authorities in 4 Tamil Nadu Municipalities to provide solutions to their municipal waste problems and GRE is investigating the potential for waste – to – power for these municipalities. Project revenues could be on the order of INR 200 Crores.

GRE has tied up with a technology partner for conversion of waste plastic to a fuel distillate (Green fuel) to augment fuel for power generation in modular form. And, GRE has a clean, innovative solution for conversion of municipal organic waste to composted fertilizer as a waste management option for Municipalities.

Bio-Mass

GRE is developing a proposal for implementation of a waste to power project of about 4.5 MW from palm oil rejects as a substitute for an existing HFO based power plant. Project implementation revenues would be on the order of INR 4 Crore per MW.

GRE is negotiating with Private Developers in Cambodia and Vietnam for implementation of biomass and wind power projects coupled with potential Rural Electrification Schemes. Project implementation revenues could be on the order of INR 5.2 Crore per MW with a minimum of 15 – 20 MW for each country.

Wind

For 2 well known Sri Lankan firms, GRE is in the process of evaluating the potential implementation of a 10MW wind farm, for each, at sites that have been approved by the Sustainable Energy Authority. GRE project revenues would be on the order of about INR 4.5 Crores per MW.

GRE has been asked to analyze and evaluate the potential for wind power in one of the higher elevation regions in Sri Lanka by a Private Developer. This could involve a further project of 10 MW.

For TANCEM, GRE is in the process of evaluating their available land, in Tamil Nadu, for implementation of 14 – 16 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) with a total capacity of 3.5 – 4 MW that could bring in revenues of about INR 21 Crores for GRE.
