Tata Power subsidiary inaugurates first 5 kW biogas plant in Bihar, India

TP Renewable Microgrid (TPRMG), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has inaugurated its first 5 kW biogas plant in Bihar, India.

TPRMG constructed the plant in association with Grassroots Energy and commenced operations on National Energy Conservation Day on 14 December 2020.

The facility utilises cow manure procured from nearby villages, which is then processed through a bio-digester to generate methane. The methane is then used to drive a specially-designed 5 kW generator to generate electricity, which is fed to the adjoining 30 kW microgrid generating station. Residues are processed to create organic manure for farmers.

Praveer Sinha, CEO and managing director of Tata Power, said: “It is a proud moment for us, we are constructively moving ahead with our agenda to be the foremost renewable energy company of India and continue to support the nation to achieve its green energy goals.

“We would like to congratulate our team to complete this project in a record team and be able to commence the operation of this plant on National Energy Conservation Day.”

“It’s a major achievement for us,” commented Manoj Gupta, CEO of TP Renewable Microgrid. “We are proud to collaborate with Grassroots Energy for our first biogas plant.

“With this low-cost, energy-efficient technology to produce purified biogas in a cost-effective manner, we will address diverse market segments currently using conventional energy sources. We shall enable them to switch to low-cost biogas powered electricity without lowering their performance.”
