Vasudha- Energy Mapping Initiative is an attempt to build a reservoir of analytics, data and interactive information on the power generation in India. The mapping in its initial phase provides rich information of the operating and proposed thermal power plants (TPPs) in India. The next phase would be an energy mapping for other energy sources such as oil, gas, hydro, solar, wind etc. In the first phase, the mapping is constructed based on a detailed database put together by Vasudha Foundation.
This initiative is an all-encompassing resource platform to find data, analytics and comparisons on various Thermal Power Plants using various parameters such as the age of the power plants, performance levels of power plants, measured by actual annual generation, capacity utilization factor and auxiliary consumption and geographic location of power plants, to name a few.READ MORE
Geographic parameters covers information on the proximity to Eco-sensitive zones, zoning power plants based on its vulnerability to natural disasters
Economic parameters capture the linkage to HDI levels and Energy Access in the region
Alternate energy pathway covers the parameters which capture the potential for renewable energy alternates in the region
Performance levels of Power Plants measured by Annual Energy Generation, Plant Load Factor and Auxiliary Energy Consumption
Water consumption levels and water linkages, including, assessment of the current water levels in the region
Air quality parameters include information on Air Pollution, Carbon Emissions etc,
Vasudha Foundation is a not for profit organization set up in April 2010 with the belief in the conservation of Vasudha, which in Sanskrit means the Earth, the giver of wealth and with the objective of promoting sustainable consumption of its bounties.
The core mission is to promote environment -friendly, socially just and sustainable models of energy by focusing on renewable energy and energy efficient technologies and lifestyle solutions. The organization focuses to bring about reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in the environment and ensure energy efficiency, energy security, energy independence, and sustainable development and simultaneously, promoting the concept of “Low Carbon Solutions” and “Green Economies”.
