India ranks behind the United States and China in IHS Markit’s latest rankings of most attractive solar markets.
The federal government will provide INR968 crore of soft loans for a INR1307 crore, 100 MW solar park near the Jamuna river in Bangladesh’s Jamalpur district, where a second park of a similar size is being planned by Dhaka and a Chinese partner.
Solar manufacturers who wish to apply for state cash to set up production lines must meet minimum requirements for manufacturing scale and module efficiency, and must produce at least solar cells and modules to be shortlisted. They will then bid for the amount of incentives they want over a five-year period, with extra weight given to applicants who will manufacture more of the supply chain, from polysilicon downwards.
The second wave of Covid-19 reminds us to build a resilient society. Climate Change, not unlike Covid-19, will deliver devastating effects to our planet and disrupt our way of life. So, in this climate decade, India must channel investments into sustainable activities. The first step is to construct a robust “green taxonomy” – a green list of sustainable activities.
Gujarat tops the list of Indian states with respect to installed solar rooftop capacity, as it has already achieved around 40 percent of its allotted target. The persisting pandemic has slowed down the pace of capacity addition but policy incentives like SURYA- Gujarat are paving way towards Gujarat’s clean energy transition.
The Chinese solar manufacturer has launched the 670W Vertex solar module in India that offers an efficiency of up to 21.6%. It has also fielded two models of panel tracking solutions from its TrinaTracker business.
Time-of-use (ToU) tariff can be applied to encourage domestic and industrial consumers to shift their electricity usage to non-peak hours, thereby reducing the system’s load during peak periods. A new study examines the feasibility of the ToU tariff policy in the state of Gujarat. It also suggests a framework and effective roadmap for the utilities to understand the procedure and required infrastructure to implement ToU.
A new report says that combining rooftop solar with storage presents an enormous opportunity for India as the combination becomes economically viable soon. It highlights the best practices from Australia—a nation with the world’s highest rooftop solar capacity per person—to serve as a guide in planning for this integration.
Rooftop solar, at 3.9 GW, accounts for only around 10% of the cumulative grid-connected solar capacity installed by the nation as of February end this year.
