Initiatives for Clean and Green Indian Navy


On February 12, 2017, INS Sarvekshak, a survey ship of the Indian Navy had completed installation of a 5KW solar power system on board [1]. It is estimated that in this project, the profit generated would be Rs. 2.7 Cr, taking the service life of the ship to be about 25 years. This solar power installation avoids 60,225 kg of carbon a year and saves 22,995 liters of diesel.
Green Energy Generation Options to Defense Forces
Green Energy options that are available to defense forces depending upon their geographical locations include a combination of the following:
Solar Energy
Solar energy is being utilized by the forces to reduce the load on traditional generators. Solar energy can be generated using both fixed and portable solar systems to provide a clean source of energy, especially at remote locations. This also helps in reducing the number of costly and at times dangerous fuel re-supply missions. With the rapidly reducing costs of PV cells, the rates of solar power are highly competitive. Further, since the PV cells are much lighter they can be easily carried on the backpacks in the battlefield.
