More than 600 million people in the northern and eastern parts of India lost power on Tuesday, putting roughly half of India’s population in the dark.
Some analysts said public outrage over the widespread outages may force Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s government to tackle reforms in the crisis-riddled power sector. So another point related when looking at power reliability, is energy security in the light of extreme weather events.
And it is safest when you spread the energy with a smart grid, when millions of electric car owners batteries become the energy storage points.
If India just forgot about increasing coal while it was deploying it’s solar infrastructure they would be sitting in the dark for THE NEXT 90 YEARS! Maybe China should ship their spare solar technology to India (for distributed power) and the USA can make our own. So, it wouldn’t have anything to do with India’s decrepit electrical transmission infrastructure?
India plans to add only 88,000 megawatts (from a Reuters report from today) and it will take them 5 years to do it!
In the weeks leading up to the failure, extreme heat had caused power use to reach record levels in New Delhi. A senior director for an Indian power company described the outage as “a fairly large breakdown that exposed major technical faults in India’s grid system. Obviously India needs to cut down all of its forests to make room for clean green solar panels and wind turbines. The CNN report touched on increased use of electricity for air conditioning and agricultural irrigation, as the monsoon rains have been delayed. Coal power networks are politically corrupt in India, China, and the United States, including the coal producers, utilities, and politicians. Mike that is a nice article loaded with info but it does not indicate serious action by China or India and I don’t believe the US will take a leadership role for many years to come. One difference between solar and fossil fuels is that most home or village solar installations require labor. We can trace the too big to care phenomenon back to 19th century railroads, early 20th century steel mills and 1920s coal mines, none of which cared for worker safety or welfare.
There’s no reason for our electric companies to care if our power works, not until we have enough blackouts again and again and again, which enrages citizens to vote out some pro-business Congresspeople. This Times of India informative article (12 July 2012) predicts power outages and reviews the main causes. The Indian middle class needs the electricity for air-conditioning, computers, plasma TVs etc, while a couple of hundred million Indians, surplus to requirement, would love just a single bulb. India is a country riven by class inequality, but is so ancient a civilization that they have turn such injustice into an hereditary system of intractable caste differences, and made a religion out of it.
Fears: The gap between the amount of electricity that the nation's power stations can supply and the demand from homes and businesses is getting dangerously low. The new rules unveiled yesterday would also let National Grid resurrect mothballed power plants to boost supply. DECC said it supports the plans, butA  questioned the figures behind Ofgema€™s blackout warnings.

LOS ANGELES — There is new concern about potential rolling blackouts in Southern California this summer, and with it an increased need for home energy efficiency and solar power. San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange counties face the possibility that electricity demand during a heat wave will exceed available supply on the grid. The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) went offline in January and remains out of service while officials investigate “unexpected wear” that led to a small radioactive steam leak. SONGS is a major player in terms of energy supply, capable of producing enough electricity to power 1.4 million homes. With some 8,500 solar projects installed throughout San Diego and Los Angeles, the sun may help meet peak energy needs.
Energy efficiency and demand response measures will also play a critical role, should SONGS remain offline this summer.

One of the principal barriers to cheap coal production is environmental protection, and for good reason: The IMF estimates that coal pollution kills about 70,000 Indians per year and development of coal in India (and China) is undermining efforts to decrease global carbon emissions. By the end of 2012, the Solar Mission called for 810 megawatts of installed panels, but, according to a recently released report, India passed the 1 gigawatt mark in June of this year, a full 6 months ahead of the plan for 22 gigawatts by 2022. The Solar Mission aims to provide more reliable sources of power to those citizens while reducing energy cost, decreasing reliance on foreign coal, and ameliorating the consequences of India’s economic growth for the environment. Even though the 4-5 million US citizens affected from power outage after the recent Derecho are hardly comparable to 600 million, but it showed that it can hit everybody.
He speculated that some states had attempted to draw more power than permitted due to higher consumption. That’s why the companies and power plants are never charged for killing people with SOx an mercury, not to mention carbon dioxide.


That’s why the plutocrats of the West prefer India to China-it represents an ideal of zero social mobility and hereditary privilege that they deeply admire and are striving to emulate. The government is intentionally bankrupting coal powered plants from providing a nation with ample amount of electricity. The situation at SONGS prompted a visit from Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory B. Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric (who co-own the facility, along with the City of Riverside) are looking for ways to deal with that potential void this summer. GreentechMedia featured an article recently describing the opportunities and challenges in leveraging the region’s solar strengths to meet demand this summer. Both Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric are looking to expand existing energy conservation programs to reduce electricity demands this summer.

Further, Indian coal development can create underground fires that cause houses to fall into the earth and fuels the corruption in the Indian energy sector that’s holding back meaningful reform. The report also found that India had only about 506 megawatts of installed capacity as recently as March, meaning that the country doubled its efforts in only two moths.
So it wouldn’t have anything to do with the nearly 50% loss of power between the generating station and the end user due to decrepit electrical transmission and rampant theft?
Spokesperson for Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) and the Northern Regional Load Despatch Centre (NRLDC) stated that Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana were the states responsible for the overdraw. They could close those plants before they reach their lifespan but I doubt that even China would give up on the investment. Those plans will likely involve reviving two retired natural gas power plants in Huntington Beach, as well as reducing stress on the grid with renewable resources and energy conservation. Solar power is actually less expensive than diesel in India and renewables more broadly are becoming increasingly plausible alternatives to expanded coal development. India is an economic basket case always on the edge of their budget for providing power and water so they will stick to their domestic coal supplemented by imports.
So, it wouldn’t have anything to do with increasing demand in the rapidly growing cities while the government struggles to keep up with generating capacity? China may switch from building new coal plants to natural gas, they are interested in domestic fracking, and that seems to be the current trend.
With countries like India and China we can expect atmospheric CO2 to continue to rise at and accelerating rate well into the middle of the 21st century.
