Importance of Materials in PV Modules: Recommended Best Practices to Select PV Modules

DuPont has been engaged in an extensive field survey program for more than 5 years to help gain an in- depth understanding of what makes a reliable and durable PV module. The studies have found that many materials used in PV modules demonstrate signs of visual changes in less than 2 years of operation and resulted in power loss, safety risk or both.

Indian Solar Rooftop PV Projects: A Bright Investment - RESCO vs. CAPEX

The financial palatability of the project, the net present value (NPV), is the highest in Karnataka followed by New Delhi for OPEX model of tenure of 10 years. However, if we observe east and west zones, they are more attractive towards CAPEX model with higher NPVs. In addition, it has been observed that irrespective of type of roof, ownership model will remain same zone wise

Amidst a few clouds, the sun shone brightly on India’s solar sector in 2018

“An immediate rethinking of on-ground policies needs to be done to facilitate the ‘realization’ of solar. While domestic producers of solar-cells need to be protected and their interests promoted, it cannot be done at the cost of increasing the product cost for the end-user, thereby jeopardizing the future of the entire industry. The falling currency rates have definitely not helped the matters either”

Powering a Solar Future: The India story

A major issue that must be addressed and is unique to India currently, is the challenge of taxation –after the implementation of GST. Most industry players are still unsure of the precise rate to be applied for EPC services. Additionally, different states current levy varied tax rates that range from 5to 18 percent GST on these services that further complicates the situation

Making Electric Vehicle Acceptable and Affordable to Indian Consumer

Developing large scale charge point network in Indian urban environment will be challenging. High upfront capital costs and present low levels of uptake for electric vehicles mean that returns on investment will only be realized over longer periods. That would require for government to create opportunities for investment in new rapid charging infrastructure by reducing key barriers to investment, in particular access to suitable sites with sufficient power

Electric Vehicles & Market Challenges

The cost of an EV in India is determined by the cost of the battery which at this time constitutes around 35 per cent of the cost of the EV. The cost of the battery in turn governed by international dynamics and who holds the minerals required for battery production. Companies in India are working on producing Lithium based batteries in India which is bound to bring battery prices down

Bright Prospects for Electric Vehicles Market in India

Analysts estimate that 30,000 slow-charging and 15,000 fast-charging stations need to be established in a phased manner within the next three to five years. At every three kilometers in cities, a minimum of two high-charge points and a fast-charging point are required

Charging Stations for EVs can help drive demand for the sector's growth in the country

There are around 4,000 charging stations that are planned to be set up in the country which would constitute only 1 per cent of the total charging stations projected to be needed by the end of 2030. This is meant to encourage the use of EVs and create enough demand to attract other players to set up charging stations, thus creating a bigger market for EVs in the near future
