“We May Soon Say Goodbye to Monofacial”

As bifacial technology establishes itself in the market, module cost is likely to fall further to be competitive with monofacial. This will have a significant impact on financial models. Bifacial technology is no more a future vision, it is becoming the reality.

India’s Energy Storage Market

Advanced energy storage technologies can play an important role in renewable integration, energy access, electric mobility and the smart cities initiatives of the Indian government. We are at a critical stage for building a manufacturing ecosystem for advanced energy storage technologies in India. While, around the globe, over 200 GWh of advanced energy storage manufacturing capacity is already built and another 200 GWh of new capacity will be built within the next three to five years.

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”

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

How blockchain technology can influence the solar sector?

Blockchain based platforms will make the energy sharing easy will decrease the load on the grid and will help the individual or a community to be energy independent.With small steps, the world is accepting this blockchain technology. This blockchain technology is going to be the 4th industrial revolution. Companies like EcoCoin and TransActive are creating a platform which can ease the process of energy trading locally which will further help to attract new and more people in renewable energy

Can India lead the world?

The Government has been the real catalyst till date in pushing the green agenda and will have to continue holding fort till the country reaches the finish line. Although a handful of naysayers and sceptics doubt India’s ability to reach the 175 GW target by 2022, there are far more believers who strongly feel that India may reach this target well before 2022
