Intersolar India and accompanying Intersolar India Conference take place under one roof for the first time
Mumbai, Ocober 2014: Companies in the solar sector and the wider economy are pinning high hopes on the new Indian government that assumed power in May of this year. While the first positive steps toward changes in energy supply are already being seen, the fundamental stance of the new administration and the Indian solar market will form one of the key topics at Intersolar India 2014. From November 18 to 20, around 200 exhibitors will showcase the entire solar industry value chain covering photovoltaics (PV), PV production technologies, energy storage systems and solar thermal technologies. Around 8,500 visitors from every corner of the globe are forecast to visit the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) for this year’s event. For the first time, the Intersolar India Conference is also taking place there in parallel, and is expected to attract in the region of 700 attendees and 100 speakers.
For India, the replacement of the Indian National Congress (INC), the party that had governed the country for decades, marks a deep-rooted change. The prime minister now at the helm of the country, Narendra Modi from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is the first man to hold this office in 30 years who is not dependent on the support of other parties. As a result, it will be much easier for his government to vote in and implement its plans, which also gives cause for optimism in the solar camp. Under his leadership as Chief Minister of Gujarat, Modi not only completely reformed the state’s energy supply system, he also promoted renewable sources of energy, and solar power in particular. 2009 saw the birth of the first solar energy incentive program introduced by an Indian federal state. Gujarat’s installed photovoltaic capacity now totals around 1 gigawatt (GW) – more than a third of the cumulative PV capacity installed in India. In its election manifesto, the BJP promised to expand the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM), the national incentive program. To date, 400 million people in India still have no access to electricity. The primary aim is therefore to have at least one solar-powered light in every house by 2019.
