NDMC to purchase power from gasification WtE plant

As reported by The Times of India, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has ordered the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to purchase electricity produced by a WtE gasification plant operated by company Elephant Energy Pvt Ltd (EEPL). According to DERC, NDMC is duty-bound to buy the facility’s electricity under its renewable energy obligations. EEPL’s facility was said to be a 70 tpd hybrid gasification WtE plant with a generation capacity of 1.7 MWel. NDMC had awarded a waste concession to EEPL, but not a power purchase agreement (PPA), causing the plant to lie idle.
