  • A Three-step Strategy for Solar Storage
    A Three-step Strategy for Solar Storage

    Did you know that the solar power capacity of the world today is 53 times what it was nine years ago? True; yet there is a huge gap between the demand and supply of solar power, which solar developers are struggling to fulfill. If they have to address this problem they will have to adopt a multi-dimensional approach that involves analysis and viability assessment of solar storage projects.

    As solar power developers here are three steps you can follow while planning and integrating solar storage solutions:

    Understanding the market

  • If India has to achieve its #solarpowergeneration target, solar developers will have to make sure they pick the right sites, make proper use of the land available, and engage with the community for their support.
    Site Selection For #SolarPowerGeneration

    If India has to achieve its #solarpowergeneration target, solar developers will have to make sure they pick the right sites, make proper use of the land available, and engage with the community for their support.

    From our experience of dealing with all stakeholders in88888 this space, let’s run you through some of the industry-wide best practices that every #solardevelopmentcompany must adhere to press ahead in this sector.

  • Will India meet its #SolarPowerTarget by 2022?
    Will India meet its #SolarPowerTarget by 2022?

    Credit research agency, Crisil has thrown a dampener on the solar market. The agency has come out with a detailed report expressing its doubts that at the current pace of solar deployment, India would be able to meet its 100GW #solarpowertarget by 2022.

    The country’s present installed capacity is 21.65GW. The maximum, says the report could be 78GW to 80GW in these four years. Let’s look at this assessment critically.

  • As of now, about 90% of the equipment that solar power developers use in India is imported. Of this, 85% of the imports are from China. A recent levy of 25% safeguard duty on the imports of solar panels and modules could make capping solar power tariffs, an absolutely misguided move on the part of MNRE.
    Is India right in capping its solar power tariffs?

    As the third largest energy consumer in the world, India is determined to achieve 100GW solar power by 2022. It has a long way to go, considering its current capacity of 24GW. Nevertheless, it is quite ironical that the biggest obstacle to this has been brought in by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) itself, by making a decision to cap solar power tariffs.

  • It is important to bring all missing pieces of the jig saw puzzle together if you want to manage your #solardevelopmentcosts effectively.
    Strategies for Overcoming Barriers to #SolarDevelopment

    The market for solar power is growing at a rapid pace; yet #solardevelopment, as a business, lags in profitability. While on one hand, the falling prices of oil and gas are testing the competitive position of solar, high-interest rates are making it tougher to meet the cost of capital input in solar projects. However, on the upside, there are opportunities for profit and growth, if corporates are able to overcome two major challenges in #developingsolarpowersystems:
