Perception Vs Reality around the Solar Sector Opportunity in India: Is the Investment Opportunity Euphoria Sustainable? - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Perception Vs Reality around the Solar Sector Opportunity in India: Is the Investment Opportunity Euphoria Sustainable?" report to their offering.

Solar power potential in India remained dormant at a meagre 2 MW for decades, as the technology was in its demonstration phase till 2011 and the upward momentum started only post 2011 when the technology started getting industrialized worldwide; India declared its intent to aggressively adopt solar technology by announcing Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM). JNNSM laid roadmap for solar energy exploitation in India and was planned in two phases.

The, first phase aims at setting up of 1,100 MW grid connected solar plants, 200 MW capacity equivalent off-grid solar applications and 7 million square meter solar thermal collector area till March, 2013. In the second phase, after taking into account the experience of the initial years, capacity will be aggressively ramped up to create conditions for up scaled and competitive solar energy penetration in the country.

Solar PV, Solar CSP, Solar Rooftop took center stage in 2012-13, thereby pushing wind to second spot in terms of priority sector in renewable energy. Solar power capacity addition registered a CAGR of 33% between 2010 and 2014. India's solar power capacity has touched capacity of 7.5 GW, from under 1 GW in 2012.

However, if India has to reach the aspirational target of 100 GW by 2022, it has to grow at a CAGR of 50%. Is it possible? It's anybody's guess! Although, the pipeline looks encouraging; India's solar projects have crossed 22 GW with 13 GW under construction and 9 GW in the request for proposal process.
