What are the key learnings you have had from the Indian solar energy sector so far?
Key Learnings from the current Indian Solar Energy Sector, Everybody wants to jump into Solar. All the big giant players are getting into solar only because of the Money power they possess.
SMEs are finding it difficult to sustain in the market, However, One big learning which I have learnt personally is all big players are going for the Power Packs/ Solar Power plants leaving behind the other segment of Rural sales and development. Which means, the lower the capacity of a company , the lower is the market segmentation. Even if I want to go for Solar Power plants, we have to compete with the giant players and get into the “PRICE WAR”, which we are not interested in.
We are happy serving our market and gaining customer’s satisfaction.
What, according to you, are the key challenges faced by the Indian Solar market?
The Key Challenges are:
- Manufacturers are mostly focused on export markets that buy Solar PV cells and modules at higher prices thereby increasing their profits. Many new suppliers have tie-ups with foreign players in Europe and United States thereby prioritizing export demand. This could result in reduced supplies for the fast-growing local market.
- The need for a better financing infrastructure, models and arrangements to spur the PV industry and consumption of PV products.
- Land Scarcity: Per capita land availability is very low in India, and land is a scarce resource. Dedication of land area near substations for exclusive installation of solar cells might have to compete with other necessities that require land.
- Complexity of subsidy structure & involvement of too many agencies like MNRE, IREDA, SNA, electricity board and electricity regulatory commission makes the development of solar PV projects difficult.
- Land allotment & PPA signing is a long procedure under the Generation Based Incentive scheme in India.
