Rajasthan Thermal Power Sources

¬†Thermal energy is one of the main energy sources that Rajasthan depends on. It makes up 54% of the total energy sources and it has been used to produce power energy. However, thermal energy is one of the pollution sources that produces CO2 and is contributing to climate change. The marked areas are seven of the main thermal power energy in Rajasthan that serve Jaipur’s power source.

Complication of Solar Farms Production

Most of the Solar Farms are located at the Thar desert, and due to climate, solar panels get covered by sand.

Centralized Vs. Decentralized Network

In a centralized system, control is exerted by just one entity (a person or an enterprise for example). In a decentralized system, there is no single controlling entity. Instead, control is shared among several independent entities. The proposed projects is a distributed hybrid solar network that will be located in the city of Jaipur. The proposal is demonstrating a local hybrid distributed energy network in the form of microgrids that will provide affordable green energy to the residents.
