India has made substantial progress in domestic solar module manufacturing capacity in recent years.

Rapid growth of distributed photovoltaics (DPV) has upended the paradigm of one-way power from the grid. Solar electricity systems located close to consumers empower them to self-supply and feed into the grid. For utilities, the impacts—positive or negative—depend on how DPV is deployed.

Solar photovoltaics (PV) has become a mainstay of low-carbon sustainable energy strategies, with the cost of electricity generated by PV plants declining by 77% between 2010 and 2018.

This Report of th Standing Committee on Energy deals with the action taken by the Government on the Observations/Recommendations containeed in the Twenty Eight Report (Sixteenth Lok Sabha) on National Solar Mission - An Appraisal, which was presented to Lok Sabha on 31st July, 2017 and was laid on the Table of Rajya Sabha on the same day.

Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is at the heart of the world’s accelerating shift from climate-damaging fossil fuels towards clean, renewable forms of energy. The steady rise of solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation forms a vital part of this global energy transformation.

Wafers, cells, modules manufacturing & imported panels for power plant allowed

In July 2018, the Government of India imposed a two-year safeguard duty on solar cells and modules, in an attempt to protect domestic manufacturing. This policy brief discusses the impact of that duty on the business prospects of manufacturers.

Scientists have designed a metal frame that increases the amount of sunlight captured by a solar cell, enhancing its energy production by almost one-third.

The government of Gujarat has approved a policy that aims to develop the state’s small-scale distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) sector. According to a Gujarat government official, The policy aims to facilitate the development of small-scale solar PV projects with sizes ranging between 0.5 and 4 MW.

The Guidelines for Tariff Based Competitive Bidding Process for Procurement of Power from Grid Connected Solar PV Power Projects have been notified under the provisions of Section 63 of the Electricity Act, 2003 vide resolution No.
