  • SOLARCON India 2013 Begins With Charging The Solar Industry To Innovate, Collaborate &


    Speaking at the inauguration to the industry leaders Shri Amita Prasad, IAS, Energy Secretary,

    Govt.of Karnataka said, "Innovate, Collaborate and execute.

    Solar power has the immense capacity to bring in stability to the fluctuating electricity tariffs in

    India as it is cheaper than thermal and domestic coal. States have realized that solar sector is

    positive as most solar radiation in the worst part of India is better than the best part of Europe.

    Solar is a serious area to work for large scale projects in India. We can add large capacities to

    rooftop solar projects and I am glad that states have understood the momentum of the big future

    of the grid connected roof tops included Shri. Tarun Kapoor, IAS, Jt. Secretary, MNRE.

    Mr. K. Subramanya, Chairperson, SEMI India PV Advisory Committee sharing his views said,

    Standardization of the solar products is necessary. Bankers need to be involved to increase

    budgetary support. Technology up gradation is essential. Respectability for the sector needs to be

    attained. As investors are looking for uncertainty, solar lobbying is required to be made.

    Dr. Harish Hande, Managing Director, SELCO India and winner of the Ramon Magsaysay

    Award in the inaugural key note said, Off grid is the market for India. Innovation, resilience,

    guts to fight the challenges are the key takeaways for the solar industry leaders. Social

    engineering will alone make this industry succeed. Solar power industry can apply the insights

    taken from the business models existing in other industry sectors. And Prof. Pradeep Haldar,

    professor at the State University of New York (College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering)

  • and CTO of the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium added, Innovation &

    entrepreneurship are to be encouraged at social level. Solar industry needs to innovate and create

    market opportunities to survive with the impending challenges. Government support is highly

    critical. Supply chain across the solar industry segment needs to be kept intact.

    On the inaugural day, addressing the JNNSM Phase - 2 (2013-2017) Policy Initiatives and

    Implementation in a session, Shri Tarun Kapoor, IAS, Joint Secretary, MNRE said,

    Developing manufacturers, system integrators, entrepreneurs was the mission of JNNSM Phase

    I. With initiatives and implementations in Phase II we would take India to the first five countries

    in the world in terms of solar power production. States are taking a better lead today. For the

    Phase II, 800 MW is the off-grid target. The thrust areas include energy access, diesel

    replacement, telecom towers, new innovative product, cooling, cold storage, water purification,

    space heating and water pumping. Speaking on the plans for off grid projects, he said, JNNSM

    II envisages development of cumulative capacity of 1000MW for off-grid solar power and

    target of15million Sq.M. collector area. The targets include improved energy access in remote

    areas, heating/cooling applications that would encourage employment generation opportunities,

    replacement of diesel and Kerosene: Telecom Towers, solar cities and solar cookers & steam

    generating systems

    Speaking on the implementation perspective, Dr. Ashvini Kumar, Director, Solar Energy

    Corporation of India added, To scale up the JNNSM Phase II objectives, we have institutional

    arrangements on board, namely SECI (Solar Energy Corporation of India), Solar Energy

    Research Advisory Council & Solar Energy Industry Advisory Council. These collectively aim

    at planning and executing integrated programs on development of solar energy technologies to

    achieve commercialization. These would be able to own, operate and manage both grid and off-

    grid power stations. They will promote R&D and assist MNRE in executing the mission

    objectives through appropriate mechanism. Although there are the issues of implementation

    connectivity norms, metering norms, business model-Tariff & PPA etc, performance, we are sure

    with our collective effort we would be able to transform them into opportunities.

    With the aim of facilitating the states role in empowering the domestic PV manufacturers to

  • help them in their internal growth and in positioning India as a global leader not only in

    consumption of solar technology but also as a provider, Ms. Bettina Weiss, President, SEMI

    India said, "Our conference theme this year reflects SEMIs view that PV manufacturing must

    complement the growth in solar PV adoption in India. Balancing PV supply and demand within

    regions provides greater economic benefits, reduces carbon emissions and the costs of

    transporting PV products, making a case for a strong regional manufacturing industry. In the last

    few years, a large chunk of solar PV installations in India have been based on components

    sourced from international suppliers and at different cost points. India must not become solely a

    consumer of solar technology as it has much to offer the world as a manufacturer.

    At SOLARCON India 2013, companies will present their products on an exhibition space spread

    over 60,000 square feet. More than 4000 national & international trade visitors are expected to

    attend India's largest solar industry centric event this year.

    The SOLARCON India 2013 conference includes: Opportunities for independent power

    producers under Indias REC mechanism; Balancing PV supply and demand in India: Re-

    invigorating Indian Manufacturing; Assessing the Indian Solar Market: Development Prospects

    and Problems the Big Picture; Perspectives on building a complete solar PV eco-system in

    India; Role of States in PV Market Growth in India; Financing Solar issues, options,

    perspectives; Rooftop Solar: The next big driver in India; Structures, safety, performance,

    reliability of PV installations and Energy conversion, storage and efficiency. The conference has

    more than 40 eminent speakers both national and international from the entire solar industry eco-

    system including the government.

    A unique workshop on PV Standards from Materials and Manufacturing to Systems in

    association with the IEEE Standards Association and the International Electrotechnical

    Commission (IEC), will be offered. And a one-day tutorial on Solar PV System Sizing in

    technical collaboration with the National Center for PV Research and Education at IIT Bombay.
