Alex Green Energy wins bid to develop 5MW solar project in India

According to Bloomberg, Alex Green Energy has won the bid to develop a 5MW solar project in India’s eastern Odisha state. The company vouched to supply power at a record-low rate and, according to a statement from PK Mohan, CEO of Odisha Renewable Energy, has the option to develop the remaining 20MW of PV capacity from the solar auction before it is offered to other bidders.

Rules of the solar auction govern that Alex Green must complete the project by August 2013. The company bid pledges to sell power to the state-run utility at US$142/MWh, which is, according to Bloomberg, the lowest bid in India to date.

Odisha Renewable Energy is awaiting approval from the state government to auction another 50MW of solar installations. The capacity will be offered in two batches of 25MW in the next few months.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
