Union minister of state for power, coal, mines and RE, Piyush Goyal told the Rajya Sabha on Monday that the Government has formulated draft National Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy. The aim of this is to provide a framework for promotion of large grid connected wind-solar PV system for optimal and efficient utilization of transmission infrastructure and land, reducing the variability in renewable power generation and thus achieving better grid stability.
Further, the Policy aims to encourage new technologies, methods and way-outs involving combined operation of wind and solar PV plants.
Solar and wind being almost complementary to each other, hybrid of two technologies would help in minimizing the variability apart from optimally utilizing the infrastructure including land and transmission system and thus strengthening the energy security of the country, Goyal said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.
