Energy and Power in North East India
How much a society progresses largely depends on the resources available to it. Owing to its large population, India's demands on natural resources are constantly increasing and it is essential that these resources are scientifically managed in a contemporary and eco-friendly manner before it's too late. Natural resources are often classified into renewable and non-renewable resources. As long as they are dealt with sensibly and in sustainable way. renewable resources can be used indefinitely. Renewable natural resources include water, wind, tides, solar radiation and biomass which are important energy sources for non-conventional power generation purpose. North East States of our country are fortunate enough to be endowed with both exhaustible and renewable energy sources. Despite this, after crossing more than half a decade after independence. because of lack of proper planning on the utilization front. development and progress remains very mind disconcerting particularly in this part of India. Till date we are facing severe power cuts and shortage throughout the region. This book discusses the power scenario on North East Indian Power Sector with special reference to Tripura. Various issues and constraints in the power sector in this region have been discussed. Available natural energy resources for decentralized power generation are presented in this book alongwith some promising technologies suitable particularly for this region. Various current statistics, diagrams and pictures on North Eastern power sector have been included in the book. It is probably the first time that such a book has been prepared on North East Indian Power Sector that addresses the several power sectorilal problems and directs towards a possible solution. It will serve as a reference for researchers and technocrats who will find the book very useful and handy.
