Finlay Colville interviews Vinay Rustagi ahead of his talk at PV IndiaTech in Delhi next week.
Fitch: Solid state support will help capacity soar from last year’s 26GW to 105.9GW in 2028, as impact of tariff and tax measures dilute in a few years.
PV Tech can reveal that our head of research, Dr. Finlay Colville, will deliver a one-hour presentation seminar during the forthcoming PV IndiaTech 2019 conference taking place in Delhi on 24-25 April 2019.
Ahead of PV Tech launching its new PV IndiaTech conference, on 24-25 April 2019, in Delhi, I review in this blog what the event is all about, and why the timing of the event has turned out to be perfect as India debates how to create a sustainable manufacturing segment that supplies quality modules to its downstream segments.
Major Indian PV developer says this is a 'special one-off case', while one analyst warns of potential escalation in time of trade anxiety.
Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a Request for Selection (RfS) for 750MW of grid-connected solar PV projects in the state of Rajasthan.
Following recent announcements from the government departments administering India’s solar PV growth ambitions, the country is now in the process of working out how to expand its domestic upstream manufacturing capacity, at a time when the PV industry is going through a period of rapid technology-change and supplier competition.
The government will watch early tenders with a view to possibly including ingots, wafers and polysilicon to the domestic content mandate.
The recent announcement from India’s Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) to approve a 12GW solar scheme for central public sector undertakings (CPSUs) – crucially mandating the use of domestically sourced solar cells and modules – represents the first key step towards India finally creating a route to stimulate multi-GW expansions for new cell and module facilities.
India's total solar PV deployment hit 25.21GW by the end of last year, according to figures supplied to parliament by the minister for new and renewable energy and power, R.K. Singh.
India has approved a 12GW solar scheme for central public sector undertakings (CPSUs), which are state-owned enterprises, and it includes a requirement to source cells and modules locally.
Major certification body the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has recognised TUV Rheinland's PV testing laboratory located in Bangalore, India, meaning the lab is now authorised to conduct testing of solar modules.
