PV Insider have this week unveiled their first PV Technology Outlook for India - a 10 page analysis of the current opportunities facing the photovoltaic manufacturing and technology industry in India.
A number of challenges are facing the PV manufacturing industry in India at present, recent forecasts have indicated. A lack of understanding has made selecting and scaling up the appropriate technology difficult. Investors still perceive high risk in the technology, and policy-makers need to match the fantastic potential in project development with rejuvenated policies.
After interviewing experts in the Indian PV industry, PV Insider have compiled the first ever PV Technology Outlook: India, which is now available for download. The guide will elucidate readers on the issues raised above, and give expert opinion on the present and future prospects for the industry.
The Outlook highlighted the growing clamour for the Indian Government to step up their support for PV manufacturers. “Being a nascent industry, the Indian manufacturers need additional incentives for investments. This would help to build up scale and that would lead to competitive pricing with global players,” stated Parag Shah, Managing Partner at Mahindra Partners. “The government needs to step in with some innovative support in order to develop a PV manufacturing ecosystem in India” agreed Madhavan Nampoothiri, Founder & Director of RESolve Energy Consultants.
Matt Carr of PV Insider explained that “readers will get a realistic and honest appraisal of the PV industry in India, with an interesting mix of industry insight and interviews.”
