Solar Energy possesses a tremendous potential to bridge India’s energy demand and supply gap in the future. The Indian Government has outlined long-term plans to attain an installed solar power generation capacity of 20,000 MW by 2020, which would be increased to 100,000 MW by 2030 and further to 200,000 MW by 2050.
Solar power is considered the ultimate source of power in India because of the technical potential of around 5,000 trillion kWh per year and minimum operating costs.
“The increased adoption of clean technology for power generation is one of the major driving factors of the Solar Power Market in India,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio Research.
“The majority share of solar power installation in India by 2018 is expected to be dominated by PV technology, accounting for 81.3 percent.”
Regions in India that lack grid connectivity are being connected through PV cell-based mini-grids. These mini-grids have reduced the initial setup costs and power tariff, and distribution of electricity from these grids will take place through low-voltage networks.
