Solar

The Solar Industry has witnessed rapid growth over the past few years and is projected to grow further in future. The Government’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) aims as a major initiative to promote sustainable growth while addressing India’s energy challenges. The Mission has set the ambitious target of deploying 20,000 MW of grid connected solar power by 2022 and is aimed at reducing the cost of solar power generation in the country. India is endowed with vast solar energy potential. About 5,000 trillion kWh per year energy is incident over India’s land area with most parts receiving 4-7 kWh per sq. m per day. Hence both technology routes for conversion of solar radiation into heat and electricity, namely, solar thermal and solar photovoltaics, can effectively be harnessed providing huge scalability for solar in India.
