India expected to install 21.2 GW of solar in FY 2025

JMK Research projects 21.2 GW of new solar capacity addition in FY 2025. This will comprise 16.5 GW of utility-scale, 4 GW rooftop, and 700 MW off-grid installations.


Off-grid solar-wind power plant design for green hydrogen generation

Scientists in Czechia have conducted a techno-economic analysis of a green hydrogen production system powered exclusively by photovoltaic and wind energy. The system uses surplus energy for water treatment and, according to its creator, can achieve a levelized cost of hydrogen of $3.12/kg.

Off-grid solar investment down by 43% globally in 2023

The Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA) says total investment in the off-grid solar sector stood at $425 million in 2023, down 43% year on year. It says the industry needs to address a lack of early-stage financing to meet development and climate targets.

ISA to accelerate solar initiatives in Uganda

The International Solar Alliance (ISA) and the government of Uganda recently discussed accelerating the solar mini-grid project to address Uganda’s energy access challenge and advancing the solar water pumping project under the India, Brazil, and South Africa (IBSA) Fund. New areas of cooperation, such as establishing a Solar Technology and Application Resource Centre (STAR-C), were also explored.

PNOC, WindStream partner to deploy hybrid wind-solar RE solutions in Philippines

The Philippine National Oil Co. (PNOC) has partnered with India’s WindStream Energy Technologies to deploy hybrid wind-solar RE solutions in remote, off-grid areas of the Philippines.

India’s ruling party pledges renewables, manufacturing focus in its poll manifesto

The next 100 years of energy

Solar is poised to be the leading energy source in the next century. In terms of cost, renewables are almost at par with their dirtier counterparts, and within a few years will soon overtake them in terms of the volume of the overall worldwide energy produced.

After-sale support key to boosting off-grid solar

A new survey from US-based impact measurement company 60 Decibels shows off-grid energy customers are currently facing a series of challenges such as product affordability, gender inequality, customer support, further investment in minigrids, and over-indebtedness. The report, however, reveals that most users say the quality of their lives “very much improved” thanks to off-grid PV.

India has installed more than 180 GW of renewable energy capacity as of Dec. 31

India has installed 180,796.35 MW of renewable energy capacity as of Dec. 31, 2023, including 73,318.49 MW (around 41%) from solar power projects.
