Central Policy
Central Scheme for Continuation of Biomass Gasifier Programme from 11th Plan and 12th Plan Period, dated 23 January 2014

Programme Components

(i)      Biomass gasifier based distributed or off-grid power programme for rural areas for meeting
          unmet demand of electricity in rural areas.

(ii)     Biomass gasifier based grid-connected power programme:
                    a.     Biomass gasifier based MW level grid-connected power plants with 100%
                             producer gas engines
                    b.     Biomass gasifier based grid connected Boiler-Turbine-Generator (BTG)
                            projects, preferably at tail end of the grid with a decentralized distribution
                            component
                    c.     Maximum installed capacity: 2 MW
(iii)     Promotional activities: Support awareness creation, publicity measures, seminars,
          workshops, business meets and training programmes;expansion of local manufacturing
          capacity; and support to service facilities under the programme.

Central Scheme to Support Promotion of Grid-Interactive Biomass Power and Bagasse Cogeneration in Sugar Mills in the country during the 12th Five Year Plan, dated 20 June 2014

Programme Components

 a.    To promote setting up of biomass power projects with minimum steam pressure
        configuration of 60 bar (6 MPa) and above for power generation (grid interfaced on
        commercial basis).

 b.    To promote cogeneration projects for surplus power generation from bagasse in sugar mills
         in the private, cooperative or public sector with a minimum steam pressure of 40 bar (4 MPa)
        (grid interfaced on commercial basis).

 c.    To promote bagasse cogeneration projects for surplus power generation in sugar mills in
        the private, cooperative or public sector with a minimum steam pressure of 60 bar (6 MPa)
        and above, BOOT (build–own–operate–transfer) or BOLT (build–own–lease–transfer)
        basis by independent power producers (IPPs), state government undertakings or state
        government joint venture companies (grid interfaced on commercial basis).

A. Central Financial Assistance (CFA) for biomass power projects and bagasse based cogeneration projects by sugar mills in the private or joint or  cooperative or public sector

(Maximum support of Rs 6.00  crore per

project)

 

 

Rs 40.00 lakh
Rs 50.00 lakh
Rs 60.00 lakh

 


per MW of surplus power@

(Maximum support of Rs 6.00  crore per project)

*For new sugar mills that are yet to start production and for existing sugar mills in the private or cooperative sector that employ backpressure or seasonal or incidental cogeneration to export surplus power to the grid, the subsidies will be 50% of the amount mentioned above.

@Power generated in a sugar mill minus power used for captive purpose, i.e. the net power fed into the grid during a season by a sugar mill.

#Here “C” is the capacity in MW.

B. Central Financial Assistance (CFA) for bagasse based cogeneration projects in sugar mills in the cooperative or public sector implemented by IPPs or state government undertakings or special-purpose vehicles (Urja Ankur Trust) on BOOT or BOLT basis
