ii. OR - Shows results where either term (or both terms) is present. 'OR' must be in upper case. For example search term - delhi OR metro result - It will return records in which either 'delhi' or 'metro' or both are present

2. Proximity Searches

A proximity search looks for terms that are within a specific distance from one another. For example, search term - 'delhi metro'~10 result - It will search for records where 'delhi' and 'metro' are found within 10 words of each other

3. Phrase searches

Govt invites bids for four GW offshore wind power projects

The government has invited bids for the development of off-shore wind energy of a total capacity of four GW. The bids are for four blocks of one GW each on open access basis for development of offshore wind power projects, off the coast of Tamil Nadu, through international competitive bidding.

Under this arrangement, the developers who win the bid for each block will set up one GW off-shore wind energy capacity and sell electricity directly to consumers under the open access regime. No viability gap funding (VGF) is given under the open access bids, and the renewable energy generated would be sold to entities such as industries, which are currently in the high-tariff band. 

The off-shore wind energy bids have been invited through Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), under the administrative control of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). The bids are being called as all necessary environmental clearances are in place.

Off-shore wind does away with constraints of availability of land, has higher capacity utilization function (CUF) - approaching almost 50 percent. Also, off-shore wind turbines offer more efficiency than those of on-shore wind turbines; each turbine is of 15 MW.  This step will take India’s RE journey into another dimension.
