The Future of Solar Energy in India


Gandhinagar, September 23rd, 2013

The solar industry in India has quadrupled over the last three years. As of June 30, 2013, there are around 1760 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity of solar in India. However, despite the facts, the sector continues to face many challenges. The phase II of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) has not yet taken off and the plans announced by different state governments have not materialised. There are barriers all along the business chain — from manufacturing to development and installation to financing of solar power project. 

With the aim to find a direction to move forward, we are organizing a workshop on ‘The Future of Solar Energy in India’ in collaboration with Gujarat Energy Research & Management Institute (GERMI) in Gandhinagar.

This conference is scheduled at a critical stage to take stock of the existing situation and develop a roadmap for sustainable growth of the solar energy in the country.

Venue: Lecture Theatre,
Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University
Raisan Village, Gandhinagar
Gujarat - 382 007

Date: Monday, September 23, 2013 (9.00 AM to 6.00 PM)

It is imperative that we build an informed public opinion on the importance of establishing a roadmap for solar energy in India for sustainable development of the sector.
