Another year is coming to an end and with this, the renewable energy sector is positioned at an exciting juncture. With the burning of fossil fuels being one of the primary causes of climate change, the renewable energy sector emerges as a beacon of hope, offering viable solutions.

The renewable energy sector showcased a plethora of opportunities this year, led by technological advancements and growing investments in the solar market. India has undeniably made significant strides and stands fourth globally in renewable energy installed capacity. From 76.37 GW in March 2014 to 178.98 GW in October 2023, the installed renewable energy capacity has increased substantially with an increase of around 25.54 times in the solar power installed capacity.

The industrial landscape is undergoing significant transformation, driven by the progression of technology. Several key areas, from advancements in solar modules to government initiatives, are set to shape the solar sector in different ways throughout 2024.

In view of this, Energetica India interviewed key industry players on what kept up the momentum in 2023 and how 2024 will set the tone to fast-track India’s ambitious renewable energy capacity addition target of 500 GW by 2030.
Our capacity addition plans for the coming year are focused on several extents. We aim to expand our production capacity to meet the growing demand for solar products.

We also showcased our Vanguard 1P tracker in India. The Vanguard 1P, with its bidirectional dampers and patented spherical bearings, is highly reliable and easier to install than traditional trackers. TrinaTracker has also verified multiple onshore Indian suppliers who can provide the structural items of the tracker to our clients directly in the region, enabling more cost competitive and timely supply of components.
