Webinar - Transitions in the UK-India Energy Sectors - UK India Business Council
UKIBC Associate Director Prasenjit Dhar moderated the session led by Debasish Mishra and Jimit Devani, Partners at Deloitte; Alex Marshall, Group Business Development and Marketing Director at Clarke Energy; and Jennifer Fagan, First Secretary Trade and Investment at the British High Commission in New Delhi.
Alex gave an overview of Clarke Energy’s global operations, ethos and product offerings, emphasising that India is one of its key business hubs in the waste-to-energy area. Where renewable energy efficiency is concerned, Clarke Energy has a range of different applications for gas engines. The need for flexible clean generation with better utilisation of a number of fuels from waste, is a growing sector of the business. Alex shared a few case studies, including the first biogas installation in 1997, a sewage gas operation in Kodungayur, and a more recent project involving trigeneration (electricity, heat, and cooling) for the treatment of waste products with Embio, a pharmaceuticals manufacturer in Maharashtra. Alex also shared an example of flexible generation in Forsa Energy, showing the opportunity for UK-style installations which could have value in India. Alex concluded his presentation by mentioning Clarke Energy and UKIBC’s recent white paper on ‘Removing Barriers to Sustainable Municipal Solid Waste Management using Anaerobic Digestion in India’.
