The government has set huge expectations from Indian Solar Industry to accomplish 100 GW solar energy target, set by our honourable PM Narendra Modi by 2022 and the promotion of Make in India scheme. The Indian solar manufacturing industry is the key to changing the manufacturing sector in India altogether and redefining the global image of the industry from importers to exporters. More than ever, governments will be central in tackling these challenges and determining the pace of manufacturing of solar energy in the near future.
Presently, China is the world leader in manufacturing of solar cells and panels and India’s import rate of solar cells and modules from China, is as high as 80%. The government should bear the structural benefit the solar energy can bring to the power sector in particular, economic and sustainable development, and job creation - while also reducing emissions and fostering technology innovation. This is an opportunity for the manufacturers of India to excel and make a strong presence in the international solar market.
In this webinar, leading manufacturers in the solar energy industry will review the strength, weakness, opportunities and threats impeding the solar energy manufacturing growth and suggest policy measures that would create an exciting climate for speeding up manufacturing in India.
