A Tall Order?

The roadblocks in India’s path to emerging as the greatest solar power.

Just chew on this fact - a 50% reduction in solar installations in just one financial quarter!

India has been very bullish on solar power, since a very long time now. The 100 GW is the solar power capacity that the country hopes to build by 2022.

But the question that begs to be answered here is - is it even possible to build more than four times the existing capacity, within a span of just four years?

Is the use of Solar energy declining in India?

If yes, how can we stem the tide and reverse the trend?

There was a recent statistic which mentions that the use of solar energy declined by 52% in India in 2017. The reason for this is not difficult to guess.

A steep 25% safeguard duty imposed on imports of solar panel cells from China and Malaysia, has a lot to do with this retrogressive trend.

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

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.
