Making India's Solar PV Manufacturing Self-reliant

28 Aug 2020   |   1600 -1730 hrs IST

India is expected to install nearly 65 GW of solar projects in the next 30 months and another 150 GW between 2022 and 2030. Currently, India imports most of the solar modules and the raw materials required for solar module manufacturing. With the emphasis on creating an Atma Nirbhar Bharat and a focus on manufacturing, certification, and R&D, domestic companies will be able to grab the opportunity and service not only domestic demand but become export competitive too.

The discussion will focus on the short term and long term interventions required to create a conducive ecosystem for deployment and manufacturing of next-generation modules. The panel would debate the merits and demerits of tariff barriers, fiscal support and guaranteed offtake to scale up the sector. Challenges on certification, vertical and horizontal integration and limited R&D in the sector will also be discussed and debated.
