Domestic solar equipment makers left To Fend for Themselves 14.1.2019 Financial Chronicle
Comment: Gyanesh Chaudhary, MD & CEO, Vikram Solar The Indian National Solar Mission (NSM) was established with an objective to achieve significant solar deployment while assuming a global leadership role in solar manufacturing across the complete value chain of leading edge solar technologies. After 8 years of NSM implementation, there is no doubt that India has not only achieved its initial solar deployment targets but has significantly revised them upwards. However, it is increasingly being realised that India’s solar story is built primarily on imports as 85-90% of the solar panels are currently being imported into India to achieve deployment targets. Renewable energy (RE) now contributes roughly 10% of India’s energy mix with approximately 27.4 GW solar installed capacity being operational. Challenges in the path to solarisation Today India ranks 2nd most attractive global market for solar power equipment, 3rd in terms of energy generation capacity and 6th in terms of RE installations but ...

Headwinds for solar energy 14.1.2019 Financial Chronicle
Trends driving the sector in 2019 India’s enthusiasm as a key proponent of the historic Paris Agreement created an ambitious target of ‘100 GW solar power generation’ for the country. The trends in renewable energy and specifically the solar energy, over the last few years have been driven majorly by this target. In the Utility sector, which translates to about 60% of the target, many market forces as well as government intervention are playing crucial roles in shaping the trends. However, going forward we expect the following to shape the trends in the coming years: Project delivery: A lot of larger wind and solar utility projects have been facing delays on account of project development delays, delays due to land acquisitions and delays due to transmission availability. This commissioning of new utility scale projects has been significantly subdued in the recent past. The low tariffs: The falling tariffs have created an unrealistic tariff expectation among state-owned utilities the past year with ...
