Working Group on Power for 12th Plan: Calls for setting up of separate Load Dispatch Centre for renewable energies
The working group has also suggested measures to enhance system operation. It has recommended that a separate Load Dispatch Centre (LDC) for renewable energies be set up.
- The working group has said that “The collated data from such sub-LDCs can be transferred to the respective SLDC and RLDC so that the grid can be operated in a secure manner as well as ensuring that the renewable generation is absorbed to the fullest extent.”
- Such sub-LDCs may be set up in renewable energy rich States such as Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Rajasthan.
- To start with such a sub-LDC may be set up in Tamil Nadu which has about 6,000 MW of installed wind capacity.
- These sub-LDCs may be set up with grant from the clean energy fund, the working group has said.
