Market Specific Questions

What is the Opportunity in India Currently…in Terms of Projects in Tender, Pipelineetc…Opportunities in Manufacturing etc…

India is taking significant steps toward the solar energy sector and has set ambitious targets for renewable energy capacity addition. The government has been actively promoting solar energy through various initiatives, policies, and tenders, creating opportunities in the manufacturing and project development sectors.

There has been a visible impact of solar energy in the Indian energy scenario during the last few years.

Mission’s objective is to establish India as a global leader in solar energy by creating the policy conditions for solar technology diffusion across the country as quickly as possible.

India aims to create a solar power capacity of 280 GW by 2030.

In order to achieve the target, Government of India have launched various schemes to encourage generation of solar power in the country like Solar Park Scheme, Kusum yojana, Canal bank & Canal top Scheme, Bundling Scheme, Grid Connected Solar Rooftop Scheme etc.

Currently Solar power installed capacity has reached around 70 GW.

Government provide the opportunity in terms of tenders by giving best subsidies to the consumers from prospective suppliers.

The β€œMake in India” Campaign run by government has encourage the manufacturers in India to start the manufacturing of solar inverters, Solar panels, Batteries and other related equipments. These campaign encourages the establishment of solar manufacturing facility in the country.

What kind of market do you anticipate in 2023 in terms of Utility / C&I / Residential

Solar industry has been experiencing significant growth globally, including in utility, commercial and industrial (C&I), and residential sectors. This trend is driven by factors such as decreasing costs of solar technology, increasing environmental awareness, supportive government policies and tenders, etc…

In recent years, utility-scale solar projects have gained momentum due to their potential for large-scale electricity generation and cost competitiveness. Governments and utilities often conduct auctions and tenders for the development of utility-scale solar parks and projects.

The C&I sector has also shown promising growth in solar adoption. Many commercial and industrial establishments are installing solar systems to reduce energy costs, enhance sustainability efforts, and meet renewable energy targets. These shows the best opportunity of growth for the suppliers, EPC constructors etc..

The residential solar market has seen increasing interest as well, driven by subsidy schemes, net metering policies, and consumer awareness of the benefits of solar power. Homeowners are opting for rooftop solar installations to generate clean energy, reduce electricity bills, and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Which regions or states looks most promising to you for 2023

The top 5 states for installed renewable capacity in India are Rajasthan, Gujarat , Karnataka, Tamilnadu and Maharashtra.

Rajasthan has the highest solar power generation potential of any state in the country. The state recently surpassed Karnataka as the leading state in solar installations. Rajasthan’s operational solar power projects produced roughly 17GW of solar energy.

How much manufacturing capacity India has in terms of Solar Modules, Inverters, Cells etc and whats your anticipation in capacity addition in 2023

According to reports India’s capacity to manufacture solar modules, Inverter, Cells etc.. is around 38GW and is expected to reach approximately 95 GW by the end of the calendar year 2025.

What kind of growth do you see coming in the Residential Sector Demand

As India Government and also State Governments in India are very much aggressive for installation of Green energy, Residential sector is the best sector which can be focused for maximum reach for the usage of green energy. Government of india also had started National Portal for direct subsidy distribution to end users and also some state governments are running their own tenders to push this sector. So we believe that Residential sector will be always an attractive sector for solar integrators and consumers.
