All eyes are on India after the historic solar bids seen in Madhya Pradesh earlier this month, but headline prices won’t solve the more entrenched problems of the sector. PV Tech caught up with Ashish Khanna, executive director and CEO, Tata Power Solar, at the firm’s Noida offices near New Delhi to garner a rational viewpoint from one of the world's pioneering solar manufacturers and India's top solar rooftop EPC player.
Delays in solar PPA signing combined with a petition from developers has led to significant project commissioning deadline extensions in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, according to consultancy firm Mercom Capital Group.
The Delhi government approved its first solar policy this month with a particular focus on the rooftop segment. Jyoti Gulia, senior manager, market intelligence, at consultancy firm Bridge to India, explains how the policy brings some innovative firsts to India especially in net metering.
