    India has turned to Israel to prevent the
    type of power outage which left close to
    6oo million people without power for
    many days last July.

    According to Times of
    Israel, an Israeli company called SDE is
    going to build power plants similar to
    ones they have built in China which will
    provide electricity with power from
    waves, along the Indian coastline.

    A delegation of Indian businessmen visited
    Tel Aviv last week to sign the agreements
    for the plants which will provide backup
    power for the country.

    SDE’s technology uses buoys in the water
    that bob up and down as waves move
    towards the shore. This creates pressure
    on a hydraulic system that operates an
    electric generator.

    India has over 4,000 miles of coastline so
    this system will provide very high
    amounts of power for the country.

    Indian
    officials indicate that the areas where the
    plants are being built will most likely
    make use of the plants as their primary
    power source since it is half the price as
    the power produced by India’s other
    power sources.

    What per centum of India's power would be provided by such a system. Was the blackout due to to lack of electrical production or a fault in the power grid?

    it was actually due to a high power grid failure and hence the whole of north india and east india suffered!

    It is more costly than Solar energy

    oh buoy, here we go again. small, decentralized systems like this will not help bridge the gap that exists. nuclear is the only energy intensive yet clean solution that india has. wake up!
