    Geothermal Energy

    The unexplored Mahanadi geothermal belt in Odisha   lies between the Bakreswar Province in the north, Godavari province in the south and the Sonata province on the west. This geothermal belt is expected to display heat flow values between 104 to 280 mW/m2  and thermal gradient between 60 to 90°C/km°. Atri and Taptapani are the two hot springs in this belt.
    Thus, prima facie there is possibility of harnessing Geothermal Energy in Odisha subject to detailed survey and investigation  and assessment of the resource.
    Since only a few technically qualified organizations are available in the country to take up such assessment studies and the costs are also high OREDA is in discussion with them to ascertain the costs and the scope of the studies. Following this a financial proposal will be prepared and placed before Government / MNRE for necessary sanctions.

    Tidal Energy

    The average tidal range in Odisha is also exhibiting encouraging trends for harnessing tidal power in certain pockets. However the exact location and the harnessable capacity are to be ascertained through detailed survey and investigation before developing project proposals on the same.
    OREDA is in discussion with MNRE, GOI for financial support for undertaking such  assessment studies in some selected parts along the coastline.

     

    • Research and Development
    • Electrification of two remote villages namely, Udal and Tentulikhol in Kishorenagar block of Angul district have been completed by OREDA with installation of SPV LED Home Lighting Systems and Street Lighting Systems. The electrification works have been inaugurated by Hon’ble Minister Planning & Co-ordination and Science & Technology and Hon’ble Minister School and Mass Education on 9.7.2008.
    • OREDA has been undertaking small R&D activities particularly in the field of applied research on pertinent technologies and applications. Under this activity OREDA had recently developed a retrofit for running stationary  diesel engines on vegetable oils like Karnaj, Kusum, Jatropha etc. Different types of retrofits for mechanical and electrical applications are still being developed under this program. During the current year State Government has made a budget provision of Rs 5.00 lakhs under R&D. It has been proposed to develop a solar dryer for drying Kendu leaves and other minor forest produce. The details of the proposal has been given at Annex –VI.

     

    8. Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
    OREDA has been appointed as the State Level Nodal Agency by MoEF, GOI for development of small scale CDM Projects in the State. Under this assignment OREDA has already developed Project Design Documents of Wind and Hydro Projects being taken up by OREDA.
    During the current year apart from the normal CDM activities OREDA proposes to develop a Project Design Document (PDD) for Jatropha plantation and bio-diesel production. This is going to become unique effort as no such PDD has so far been developed anywhere in the world. While consultants charge exorbitant prices amounting to Rs 30 to 40 lakhs for developing such PDDs , OREDA proposes to develop the PDD on its own with its in-house capabilities.
    For this purpose a team comprising of the following members has been constituted:

    • Ajit Bharthuar –               Team Leader
    • Ashok. K. Choudhury -   Member
    • Partha .P. Panda-            Member
    • Sudam Sethy -                Member

    The team is expected to complete the document within 3 months.
    9. Electrification of Jakham village in Kalahandi district through electric generator   set using Straight Vegetable Oil.
    10. Office Automation.

    • OREDA has successfully implemented Office Automation system with the aim to increase the organizational effectiveness and also to get the integrated management system.
    • The system is controlled by E-Hub center at OREDA Head Quarters through Wi-Fi Network and BSNL Broadband Network connection.
    • All the official business and internal communication among the officers and staff are being carried out through the office automation system.
    • Access to the system has also been given to officials of MNRE, Govt.of India, Chief Secretary, Odisha and Science & technology Dept., Govt. of Odisha.
    • The system can be linked to E-Governance of state Govt. and such other facilities.

    11. ISO CERTIFICATION

      • OREDA has taken steps for streamlining systems and procedures with the aim to increase organizational effectiveness so as to get Integrated Management System certified

    ACTION PLAN FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF ENERGY PLANTATION AND BIO-DIESEL PRODUCTION PROGRAM(EPBP) 2008-09
    The Energy Plantation and Bio-diesel Production (EPBP) Program was incepted during 2007-08 following announcement of relevant policy guidelines by the State government. A total financial provision of Rs 498 lakhs (200 lakhs under RLTAP, 100 Lakh under State Plan and 198 lakhs under MoRD, GOI funds) was made during the year  for implementation of various components of the program. Subsequently, DRDAs in KBK districts were asked to divert the finds available with them under Special Central Assistance for livelihood improvement through plantation to EPBP.
    As the funds were made available mostly in the latter half of the financial year by which the plantation season was almost over, only the IEC components including organization of various seminars & workshops and printing of IEC materials and enumeration of oil seed bearing trees could be taken up during.
    Towards the above activities only 15.5 % of the allocated funds could be spent. However during the current financial year 2008-09 a more organized program has been chalked out which envisages total utilization of the spill over funds as well as those allotted during the current year. As far as the program components are concerned a sharp cut down has been proposed in IEC activities like organization of District and Block level workshops and a new component of one-day farmers’ camp has been suggested. The major fund utilization ( i.e. about 80%) will  be on subsidy for raising energy plantations over an area of about 15000 Acres. The subsidy being back-ended most of this fund will be kept as FDs in the financing banks which will be adjusted at the end of 3rd year of plantation. In the meanwhile steps will also be taken to recover this fund from NOVOD by submitting common plantation proposals under the aegis of OREDA.
    Apart from the above plantation program establishment of demonstration bio-diesel production units, seed procurement, enumeration and IEC will constitute other major activities under the program.

    Details of activities to be taken during 2008-09

    Under Energy Plantation and Bio-diesel Production program –2008-09 the following activities are proposed to be taken up:

      1. IEC activities:

    This is primarily a confidence building exercise under which District and Block level workshops are being organized to make different government functionaries,  NGOs/CBOs, leading farmers as well as general public aware about the program, its objectives, implementation methodologies, policy frame work, support services etc.
    So far 16 District level and 120 Block level workshops have been organised in 16 different districts.  The response to the program has been found to be overwhelming with active participation of Distrcit Collectors, Project Directors, Bankers, Officers from Agriculture, Forest , Soil Conservation and such other Government Departments, BDOs , leading NGOs, CBOs and  Farmers. 
    Under the above program different IEC materials have also been developed and distributed to the participants which have been found to be very useful.
    During 2008-09 it has been proposed to organise 4-district level and 40 Block level workshop in the newly adopted districts of Jharsuguda, Bargarh, Dhenkanal and Puri.
    Requests have been received to organise one-day Farmers’ training camps preferably at village/ GP levels to specifically familiarize intending farmers with the program and clarify them on different issues relating to program implementation.
    Hence it is proposed to organise 100 farmers training camps during 08-09 at a total financial outlay of Rs 5.00 lakhs.
                      

     

     

    Under IEC activities a total of Rs 25.00 lakhs is proposed to be spent during 2008-09 as per the following break –up

      1. Enumeration of Tree Borne Oil seeds:

    Enumeration of existing oil seed bearing trees and study of the current trends of marketing such seeds is considered to be a very important aspect for setting up pilot   trans- esterification units in different locations. During 07-08 such exercise was taken up in 8 KBK districts wherein the trends were found to be very encouraging. Basing on the study reports it has been decided to set up 8 trans-esterification units in each of the district head quarters.
    During 08-09 also it is proposed to take up enumeration in 8 more districts at a total financial out lay of Rs 8.00 lakhs.

      1. Setting up of pilot scale Bio-diesel production Units:

    Although this component was available during 07-08 not a single unit could be established due to lack of information on current availability of different tree borne oils. Now with the availability of such information it is proposed to establish 20 pilot projects during 2008-09 in 20 districts at a total financial out lay of Rs. 155.00 lakhs

      1.  Procurement of oil seeds:

    Although funds had been apportioned during 2007-08 to procure oil seeds from farmers at the support price fixed by Government so far no seeds have been procured. This is due to the fact that the oil seed-harvesting season normally falls between May to July. During our workshop at Rayagda and Koraput some farmers have offered the seeds from their Jatropha plantations raised just 2 years back. Although the quantity is not much we have decided to procure the same for the demonstration trans-esterification unit set up in OREDA.

    Further, during the current year it is proposed to procure non-edible oil seeds of various types including Jatropha curcas through the District Renewable Energy Cells of OREDA.

    For such procurement it is proposed to have a total financial out lay of Rs 15.00 lakhs for procurement of about 300 tons of seeds whioch will be used for demonstration in the pilot trans-esterification units.

      1. Raising of Plantations:

    Raising of Biodiesel crop plantations is the most tangible and important activity under the entire program. Although it is claimed by several organizations that huge plantations of Jatropha have been raised through their efforts in different parts of the State, During 2007- 08 following meticulous verification only some 312 acres of plantation vould only be supported under the free seedling program of MoEF.

    During the current year it is proposed to support 15000 Acres of Jatropha curcas plantation under the subsidy scheme. The district wise break up of targets is as under:

    Brief Background:

    Since time immemorial solar energy is being used to dry different things, which is a natural process. In this natural process there is no control over the time and quality of drying. Also there is no protection against sudden fall of temperature due to clouds, rains etc. Further, hygiene is always compromised in open drying which is not desirable particularly while drying food materials.

    In order to ensure faster drying to the desired moisture levels in a hygienic environment and to provide protection against sudden temperature variations properly designed solar dryers are necessary. However, it has been observed that solar dryers are not universal for all kinds of drying applications. Depending upon type of material to be dried, the desired moisture level up to which the material has to be dried, time required for drying, the ambient conditions in which the material has to be dried and such other parameters different types of solar dryers are being developed tailor made to specific applications.

    Current Proposal:

    The current proposal focuses on a development of a tunnel dryer specific to drying of Kendu leaves. Unlike a normal solar passive dryer, the proposed one will have some active components like blowers etc. that can be powered through solar PV /grid so as to ensure better draft, faster moisture removal, uniform drying etc. The dryer will also have back up heat source for protection against sudden fall of temperature. It is presumed that such of dryers can also be used for drying ginger, vegetables, and other forest produce in seasons when Kendu leaves are not available.

    Road Map

    Since this is an R&D Project month wise apportionment of physical and financial targets may not be possible. However the first 3 months beginning from June 2008 will be mainly spent on design, drawing and development of material specifications. The subsequent 3 months i.e till November 2008 will be used for procurement of materials and fabrication of the dryer. Balance 4 months will be assigned for testing, trial runs, documentation and reporting.
