Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has said that another 2GW tender for solar to be procured by Central Public Sector Undertakings (CPSUs) will be made available this month.
The CPSU scheme mandates cells and modules to be sourced locally and as per a note released today by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), the government will be keeping a close eye on early tenders with a view to possibly including ingots, wafers and polysilicon to the domestic content mandate in future CPSU tenders.
The 2GW tender, supported by Viability Gap Funding (VGF), will be released on 25 March.
Back in February, SECI also announced plans for a 1GW CPSU solar tender.
The latest issuance comes amid an unprecedented tendering spree across India.
The inaugural PV IndiaTech conference kicks off in New Delhi on 24-25 April.
The PV IndiaTech 2020 conference will continue to bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.
