Power

To meet the growing demand for energy, KCP believes that power generation from renewable energy sources is the need of the hour. Renewable energy mitigates climate change, thereby protecting our environment and supporting our policy for sustainable clean power.

Hydel


Hydroelectricity is the application of hydropower to generate electricity, and is the primary use of hydropower today. Hydroelectric power plants usually include a reservoir (generally created by a dam) that harnesses the energy of falling water, or can also use the kinetic energy of water through run-of-the-river hydroelectricity.

Wind


Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical power, and this in turn can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water). In addition, even a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.

Waste Heat Recovery


Waste heat boilers consist of several water tubes that are placed parallel to each other and in the direction of the heat leaving the system. The system is suitable to recover heat from medium – high temperature exhaust gases and is used to generate steam as an output.

Solar


Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), indirectly using concentrated solar power, or a combination of both. Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam.

Thermal


A thermal power station is one in which heat energy is converted to electric power. In most of the world’s stations, the turbine is steam-driven – water is heated, turns into steam and spins a steam turbine which drives an electrical generator.
