The SEMI India PV Advisory Committee has added new representatives in order to gain a more coverage of the solar PV industry in India. New committee members include representatives from AES Solar Energy, the Department of Energy Science and Engineering, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Siemens, SunEdison Energy India and Websol Energy Solutions.
“The role of the SEMI India PV Advisory Committee is to act as the collective voice of the Indian PV manufacturing industry,” said Debasish Paul Choudhury, president of SEMI India. “We are already jointly working on challenges and opportunities surrounding the implementation of the National Solar Mission such as workforce development.”
With SEMI India’s new advisory representatives, the committee advised that it has a full representation of the solar business in India including cell and module makers, equipment suppliers, engineering, procurement and construction companies, power plant developers, balance of system suppliers, academic institutions and consultants.
In May, SEMI India’s advisory committee outlined its priorities for the year, including its determination to raise the Indian solar industry’s visibility with workforce development and industry collaboration while also reinforcing the National Solar Mission.
