Achievements till date
As on 31 March 2016, about 4,831 MW of grid interactive power from biomass power and bagasse cogeneration in sugar industries has been commissioned. Besides, in off-grid power, about 652 MW and 164 MW is generated from non bagasse cogeneration and biomass gasifier (captive power) respectively. A small contribution in total sum is added by 18 MW, generated from biomass gasifiers installed for rural applications.
*As on 31 March 2016
In off–grid installed capacities, cumulative achievements from biomass gasifiers and non bagasse cogeneration had reached approximately 834 MW, with the share of non bagasse cogeneration being about 78%. MNRE is implementing national programmes to support biomass power. The programmes can be broadly classified into a) electricity generation and b) thermal application / access to energy.
