Google Drive service will integrate with Google Docs and will allow you to access files from anywhere and collaborate on documents with colleagues.

As per official blog :

Today, we’re introducing Google Drive—a place where you can create, share, collaborate, and keep all of your stuff. Whether you’re working with a friend on a joint research project, planning a wedding with your fiancé or tracking a budget with roommates, you can do it in Drive. You can upload and access all of your files, including videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and beyond.
After waiting for some years, Google has finally unveiled its cloud storage system, for sharing and data synchronization. Google Drive is actually a new version that offers some new documents and applications for Windows, Mac and Android that allow synchronize it.

What has changed on Google Drive?

  • The “Home” menu has been replaced by “My Drive”
  • Google drops the Collection name and now uses the term directory.
  • A new menu in the left column, which is called “Share with me” you will quickly see all files that have been shared with you.
  • The activity menu will display the latest activities that have been saved to your account

Mac and Windows Application

As I mentioned, Google offers Mac and Windows clients that can synchronize your data. These applications can be installed quickly and do not offer many customization options. For version 1, these applications are very stable and work very well. To synchronize files that have been shared with you, add them to the folder “My Drive”. One of the negatives of the Google Drive is that it is impossible to simultaneously connect to more than one account.

Google Drive comes with 5 gigabytes of free space

Google offers free 5 gigabytes, but in exchange for the acquisition of additional disk space now costs more expensive. For example, Google offered 80 gigabytes for $20 but now you can get 100GB for $5 per month or $60 per year.

How to activate Google Drive?

You can enable Google Drive by clicking this link: . If you have a Google Apps account, you must ensure that you have turned on the “Rapid Release”. You will find this option in the interface of Google Apps administrator under “Domain settings”.


In summary, this new service, Google Drive is very effective. It is anticipated that it will evolve over the coming months, but already it is essential in my opinion if you already use Google Docs, Gmail or Picasa. Note, however, the absence of IOS and Linux versions of Google Drive. As an alternative I suggest you try Microsoft Skydrive
If this feature is still not available for you, then wait for sometime as this features is still rolling out, if you want to know when your Google drive will be ready then click here, and Google team will notify you once your drive is ready.

Asia’s Largest Solar park to be built in Gujarat

After South Africa, Gujarat would house the largest solar energy park in Asia in the coming year, with a power production capacity of 500 MW. This would be set up with an investment of around INR 8000 crore (USD 2.3 billion) flowing from companies such as GMR and Lanco, which have been assigned generation capacities under the Gujarat Solar Mission.
A solar park is a concentrated zone of solar plants that are built in clusters, sharing common transmission and infrastructure. Together, these clusters generate thousands of megawatts of electricity. The technologies used are solar photovoltaic and concentrating PV (CPV), which operate with semicon-ductors and solar panels, as well as, concentrating solar power (CSP), which uses mirrors to reflect the sun’s rays. PV systems make a direct conversion into electricity, and are ideal for use at peak load times.
The only problem is that there is no cost-effective way to store this power, so it is only viable when the sun is shining.
In January 2009, Gujarat had announced the solar power policy, with a target of installing 1,000 MW capacities by 2012 and 3,000 MW by 2014.
Charnaka,this village located in Patan district in north Gujarat, is destined to become the state’s hub of solar power generation. Solar panels will be laid on close to 3000 acres of land in this village, where the state government is going to set up a ‘Gujarat Solar Park’ at an investment of INR8000 crore ( USD 2.3 billion) .
The Gujarat Power Corporation (GPCL) has been appointed the central agency to establish, operate and maintain the park. 15 companies have already been provided with plots. The state government has also agreed to purchase 993 MW worth of power from the site to encourage development.
The Charanka village is leasing plots to companies on 30-year contract basis and provides water, electricity, roads and power transmission services, according to a statement on the Gujarat government website.
As India’s largest trade partner in Europe, German companies, which remain at the fore of solar power technology, are expected to participate in the Gujarat Solar Park’s activities.
  • Solar energy does not need fuel, it saves us money as well as the possibility of polluting the environment by burning fuel.
  • Solar energy is clean, sustainable and doesn’t let out carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide or other harmful gases which usually electric generation does. So, it does not contribute to global warming, acid rain or smog.
  • There are no incurring costs, once the initial cost is taken care of, it is virtually maintenance free.
  • Since solar energy can work entirely independently, it does not require any connections or anything; so it can be used effectively and easily anywhere. Systems can be set up anywhere, in remote locations as well.

Historic day as Gujarat dedicates 600 MW solar power to the nation


Roof-top solar scheme to be emulated in Rajkot, Surat, Vadodara and Bhavnagar
In a yet more stride in Gujarat’s bid to become a solar capital, the Chief Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate 600 MW solar power generation capacity to the nation on April 19 at Charanka village of Patan district.
It is noteworthy that Gujarat government has come up with various initiatives in the field on non-conventional energy sources with a view to promote environment-friendly industrial development. Gujarat was the first state to launch a full-fledged climate department and lauched a comprehensive solar policy in 2009 to address growing environmental concerns. It has also been the first state in India to achieve the mandatory requirement of energy generated from renewable resources under Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO). Gujarat has been a leader in solar power generation and contributes 2/3rd of the 900 MW power generated in the country.
The State has commissioned the Asia’s biggest solar park at Charanka village. The park is already generating 214 MW solar power out of its total power generation capacity of 500 MW. The park has been functioning on multi-developers and multi-beneficiaries paradigm and has been awarded for being the most innovative and environment-friendly project by the CII.
With a view to make Gandhinagar a solar city, the State government has launched roof-top solar power generation scheme. Under this scheme, the State has planned to generate five megawatt of solar power by putting solar panels on about 50 state government buildings and on 500 private buildings. The State has also a plan to emulate this project in Rajkot, Surat, Bhavnagar and Vadodara in 2012-13.
In a novel initiative, the State has planned to generate solar power by putting solar panels on the Narmada canal branches. As a part of this scheme, the State has already commissioned one megawatt solar plant at the Narmada canal near Chandrasan area of Anand taluka. This has helped to stop 90,000 liter water of Narmada river from evaporating.
Apart from this, the State government has also come with the initiatives for exploiting the water of Narmada river from evaporating.
Apart from this, the State government has also come with the initiatives for exploiting the wind and tidal energies in line with its approach of promoting renewable energy sources in the power generation.
