AWARENESS OF USE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCSE
The pervasive lack of access to reliable and affordable sourses of modern energy continues to blight socio-economic progress in Odisha. Some peoples have without electricity and high loaded consumer use, a constraint that compromises productivity and income generation of public in general, as well as healthcare delivery, learning, personal safety and many other aspect of daily life. Alternative energy encompasses all those things that do not consume fossil fuel. They are widely available and environment friendly. They cause little or almost no pollution. There have been several alternative energy projects running in various countries to reduce our dependence on traditional fossil fuels. Alternative energy sources that you can take into consideration like solar energy, Wind energy, Biomass energy, geothermal energy, Ocean energy and Hydrogen energy etc.
About 70% of the sunlight gets reflected back into the space and we have only 30% of sunlight to meet up our energy demands. While solar energy is used for producing & used for Household use-cooking, agricultural sector, drying clothes, solar energy can be extracted either by Solar Thermal or using Photovoltaic (PV) Cells. Solar panels, which are required to harness this energy can be used for long time and require little or no maintenance.
A single windmill can power the crop irrigation, and the family energy needs, water pumping and electric lights. However, in the present time there are several windmills that are used to generate required energy mostly for industrial uses. Many of the wind turbines can capture much power all at once before feeding it to the power grid.
In this above causes, we have organized a special meeting and awareness programme with reputed solar system firm at Ramagiri, Dharakote and Berhampur on 4th- 6th October, 2015. We mobilize people to use alternative energy for less burden of hydroelectric power generation in Odisha.
Climate Change Effect
(Awareness cum Training program of Farmer cultivation system and Modernization of Agriculture & Irrigation system):
The organization has performed two day seminar at Rambha in Ganjam District on 9th &10th August, 2015 regarding climate changes of its alternative effect into the Agriculture & irrigation development in the coastal area..
Climate change, which has caused such massive environmental degradation, which requires urgent global problem solving on a new scale. We also need to serious prepare the people of the world for the catastrophic eventuality that looms in the face something that planet earth has faced before. In this context, we should cultivate on scientific approach according to time, place and person and subjective approach through objective adjustment likely to initiate that all farmers should cultivate medicinal rice/ micro-nutrient. Organic crops cultivation and surface & rain water conservation on different method.
- We are now extending the same approach through regressive Genetic Engineering Technology. In the time all the nutrition and medicines that your body need and cultivate through organic farming system.
- Organic vegetables are healthier due to absence of pesticides residues and contamination.
- It tastes better than most of the products.
- The cultivation work on issue of sustainable agricultural development for marginal farmers, irrigation management with equitable distribution of water and rural development through integrated watershed management.
- To develop a renewable energy based food processing unit, irrigated facility, eco-friendly farmer consumer relations.
- Maximum modernization in agriculture and agro industry, in the co-operative agricultural system, modern equipment must be utilized because such modernization will facilitate increased production.
- If modern equipment is used in agriculture, agriculture will not remain labour intensive and people can be utilized in other activities to enhance to development of the community / country.
- Agricultural co-operative should be implementing by consumer & producer co-operative system. There will be substantial saving.
- Women and children will be free from related work so they will get scope to develop themselves. In addition, increased mechanization will link the villages to the cities / towns as a result the standard of living in the villagers will be increased.
Ac’ guniindrananda Avt’ (An Agricultural Research Scholar of Gurukula University), Dr. Santharam. Pathik, Retd. Professor of Agriculture (organic farming) under agricultural university of Himachal Pradesh were attended as a trainer of the said seminar. More than 120 farmers / women in this area had been participated. There is also taken practical classes in the Agricultural field. All farmers were more benefited by the Agriculture based seminar which is first kind of there.
Facilitate sustainable wet lands adoption and mitigation programme. :
A climate change mitigation training / workshop & meeting programme organized by PROGREESS at Rambha to the role play by tropical wet lands in climate change adoption and mitigation strategy due to climate change sea water rise. We should plantation of tropical mangroves as positional carbon sinks for climate change mitigation and promote sea side plantation to create dense forest of casuarinas , pines, and mangroves are more efficient step for eco balance in photo synthesis, thus by intake of more carbon dioxide and release more oxygen. Along with Slope Plant, Boundary plant, Wire plant and Surface plant (Acacia Arabica,) should be take step for plantation in neighboring coastal villages. They also play an important role in prevention erosion of the coast line and such plantation methodology which render benefit to the local community under reducing emission for deforestation and degradation and sea water raise. In such assessment the mangroves forest is being undertaken at the right time as there is a need to assess role played by mangroves in cleaning the environment. While explaining the various ecological plants are to be planted in this region. In this context, we have take decisions to plantation of mangrove, casuarinas, pines, Acacia, palm, coconut etc… Two day workshop was successful conducted with local youths, fishermen communities, and local SHG. More than 84 participated was trained to handle/ propagate on lake and sea side plantation program.
