Case Study

How Can My Small Solar Co Enter the Big Indian Solar Market?

This small Germany solar company realized that the Indian market for his solar power plant monitoring system would be growing at a furious pace.

But India is a large country, and this small firm did not know where to start.

EAI not only provided them with the go-to-market strategy that enabled them to focus on the lowest hanging prospects, the EAI team even assisted the German company in winning their first customer.

Indian Market Entry Strategy for a German Solar PV Firm

  • EAI assisted a German company (who is a leading provider of monitoring solutions for the solar PV industry) in developing a market entry strategy for the deployment of their monitoring systems in India.
  • Through extensive primary research (using EAI’s network of key industry contacts); EAI evaluated the opportunities available and identified the potential customers for the client’s monitoring systems.
  • The assignment also involved promotional activities by EAI to gauge the reaction of the market towards the monitoring solutions.
  • EAI also worked closely with the client to provide training support for monitoring systems in India by helping organize a workshop on Solar PV and Monitoring Systems in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
