A Million Solar LEDs Given – and 99 Million More to Go. Way to Go, IIT Mumbai!

This is a post I would request every reader to share with as many as possible.

It is the story of an IIT Professor’s massive ambition to help hundreds of millions of underprivileged Indians go to the next orbit – through a simple solar lamp!

Just when you thought many uncertainties were coming to an end for solar in India and things were kind of settling down, you read about a new kind of uncertainty – this time from monkeys.

Apparently, monkeys like solar panels, or at least they frequent the rooftop solar panel installations in quite […]

Consolidation in the Indian Solar and Other RE Sectors

Recently, I had written a detailed blog post on the M&A and related investments happening in the Indian solar power sector.

Read an interesting article in the Hindu Business Line that reviewed the various M&A and investment activities happening in the Indian solar power sector in specific, and renewable energy in general.

(pic credit: CAD-IT Consultants)

A year back, I had given a 10 minute speech at Intersolar India on the real challenge for rooftop solar.

Some of my co-speakers felt I had hit the nub, while some others felt I was being pessimistic.

After I finish my post here, you decide which camp you belong to.

The Make in India campaign by the Modi government is in full flow.

US Has SunShot for Solar. India Has Gunshot.

Every time I see our Power Minister Piyush Goyal sport a big smile while boasting that his government had brought down solar power tariffs even further, and in the same breath say that his government will ensure Make in India for solar, I wonder: Has he ever heard of the term innovation?

After an avalanche of low solar tariffs ending with a super low solar tariff of Rs 4.34/kWh in the latest reverse biddings held in Nov ’15 and Jan ’16, the market suddenly seems to be retracting.

The recent lowest discovered tariff for Karnataka was Rs 4.78/kWh, a good 10% higher than the previous lowest.

How Choosing High Quality Components will Make a High Impact for Indian Solar Sector

As India races towards an aspirational 100 GW of solar power, there are some serious challenges that lie in the way.

One of the key challenges is the growth of the distributed or the rooftop solar sector.

While the government wants this sector to contribute 40 GW of the 100, the sector is growing way too slowly right […]
