The International Solar Alliance signals India’s hope to be a global competitor in emerging technologies and cement its place as an institution builder. But how does India’s vision translate into domestic policy? Has India led by example?
The Solar Power Developers Association (SPDA) said one-year safeguard duty extension had already resulted in escalated capital costs. Any additional tariff barriers would jeopardize the Government’s ‘100 GW by 2022’ target.
During the financial year 2019-20, Chinese manufacturer Risen was the second-largest PV module supplier to Indian solar installations, accounting for around 9.9% of the overall shipments.
India imported solar cells and modules worth $1.3 billion from China in FY2019-20. Domestic manufacturers have demanded a level playing field to compete against cheaper imports.
The Mumbai-based manufacturer has a 2 GW state-of-the-art solar module manufacturing capacity in Gujarat and is setting up an additional Rs 11-billion modules and cells factory in the state.
Chinese PV module maker JinkoSolar unveiled its new 610 W Tiger Pro TR solar modules on Saturday at the SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai. Furthermore, bifacial module specialist Jolywood launched the Niwa Super module series, which has a power output ranging from 570 W to 615 W and a reported efficiency of 22.1%.
