EDITORIAL Dear Energetica India Readers, Energetica India wishes you to the second issue March/April 2016 of the year 2016. India added close to 3,019 mw of grid-connected solar power generation capacity in 2015-16, which is well above its target of 2,000 mw for the fiscal. India’s total solar power generation capacity touched 6,763 mw as on March 31, 2016. On the wind side, in its recent report India Ratings & Research has classified low to moderate wind potential states of Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Karnataka as ‘secondary states’ and moderate to high wind potential states of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Rajasthan as ‘prominent states’. The growth expected in the wind sector is quite bullish and the industry has woken up to Adani also entering this space. Adani Green Energy has placed two orders for a 50 MW turnkey project in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantpur district and a 20 MW turnkey project at Inox’s Lahori site in Madhya Pradesh. The United States has recently won a ruling against India at the World Trade Organization with the US challenging the Indian solar rules on domestic requirements- rules on the origin of solar cells and solar modules used in India’s national solar power program.
