World’s Largest Solar Tree 

#GS3 #SolarEnergy #RenewableEnergy 

CSIR-CMERI has developed the World’s Largest Solar Tree, which is installed at CSIR-CMERI Residential Colony, Durgapur. 

  • The installed capacity of the Solar Tree is above 11.5 kWp.  
  • It has the annual capacity to generate 12,000-14,000 units of Clean and Green Power 

More details 

  • The Solar Tree has been designed in a manner to ensure maximum exposure of each Solar PV Panel to Sunlight and also creation of the least amount of shadow area beneath.  
  • There are a total of 35 Solar PV Panels in each tree with a capacity of 330 wp each.  
  • The inclination of the arms holding the Solar PV Panels are flexible and can be adjusted as per requirement, this feature is not available in Roof-Mounted Solar facilities.  
  • The energy generation data can be monitored either real-time or on daily basis. 

Environment Friendly 

  • These Solar Trees can be aligned with Agriculture for substituting price-volatile fossil fuels.  
  • Each Solar Tree has the potential to save 10-12 tons of CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere as Greenhouse Gases when compared with fossil fuel fired energy generation. 
  • Besides, the surplus generated power can be fed into an Energy Grid. 
  • The solar tree has the capability to incorporate IOT based features, i.e. round-the-clock CCTV surveillance in agricultural fields, real-time humidity, wind speed, rainfall prediction and soil analytics sensors.   
  • The CSIR-CMERI developed solar powered e-Suvidha Kiosks may also be connected to the Solar Trees for real-time access to the vast majority of agricultural database as well as to the eNAM i.e. National Agricultural MarketPlace for instant and real-time access to an unified online market. 
  • This Solar Tree is a Quantum Leap towards making an Energy Reliant and Carbon Negative India.
