India to Seek Bids for Hybrid Solar Thermal Plants

Dec. 13 (Bloomberg) -- India plans to hold global bidding by mid 2011 for developers to set up power plants that use a mix of solar and fossil fuels.

“We propose a demonstration of solar-thermal hybrid plants,” Deepak Gupta, secretary of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, said at a conference today in Mumbai. “We’re deciding right now how much capacity it should be.”

Gupta said the plants will be allowed to use a mix of solar and natural gas or other fossil fuels depending on what is most suitable to the location.
