There are plenty of opportunities to set up various capacity power plants based on variety of techniques (gasification, co-generation and combustion) by using biomass other than bagasse. According to a TERI report, the state has an assessed potential of 3757 megawatt power generation through biomass. To set up such kind of projects, region wise specific surveys are needed to be carried out to assess the actual potential of the projects.

State has more than 150 MW energy production potential through the processing of waste disposal of various industrial units-distilleries, food processing industries, dairies, pulp and paper mills etc.

Wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation and uses little land.Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth. The earth’s surface is made of different types of land and water. These surfaces absorb the sun’s heat at different rates, giving rise to the differences in temperature and subsequently to winds. During the day, the air above the land heats up more quickly than the air over water. The warm air over the land expands and rises, and the heavier, cooler air rushes in to take its place, creating winds. At night, the winds are reversed because the air cools more rapidly over land than over water.

In the Generation Incentive scheme under the Solar Mission Phase- 1 of the Government of India approved private entrepreneurs projects of 08 MW relative to 07 MW projects have been installed by the Indian government. The additional 05 MW project was established by a private entrepreneur at Naini, Allahabad. Thus, a total of 12 MW grid connected solar power projects have been established. Additionally projects of 05 MW in Dadri, Gautam Buddha Nagar district and 10 MW, Oochahar Rae Bareilly has been set up by NTPC.

To meet the demand of increasing energy supply in the state, the state government is committed to use different sources of energy. In view of this, state government on January 23, 2013 convened a cabinet meeting...
