India's largest solar panel manufacturer, Waaree Energies said it was closing in on achieving cumulative solar module shipments of 2.5GW as its recent capacity expansions took nameplate production to 1.5GW.
Waaree noted that it had shipped PV modules to 6 continents, across 68 countries, while India remained its key market.
Waaree has observed the highest cumulative demand has come from Western India, due to the C&I sector, while Southern India was growing, due to large-scale PV power plant projects. However, the company noted that the India residential segment had experienced a 60% increase in demand, compared to 2018, on account of government policies.
Waaree also noted that the overall solar PV market has witnessed growth of 40% since 2018.
Sunil Rathi, Director Sales & Marketing, Waaree Energies Ltd said, "Waaree Energies has witnessed an increasing demand for clean energy in India and abroad. This is primarily due to the various awareness drives by the RE 100 mission. Moreover conventional sources of energy will now have to attain solar grid parity due to the cost effectiveness and this proposition has become a hit in the corporate segment.”
Waaree recently talked to PV Tech about its use of 'Merlin' module technology that is also fabricated for flexible solar substrates.
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.
PV CellTech is a truly unique event attended by all of the world’s top cell manufacturers, equipment and material suppliers to shape the PV cell technology roadmap. Join us to learn from and network with the PV industry’s leaders.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
