In India, solar is firing on all cylinders or – one might say – making hay while the sun shines. The near future is expected to witness even greater growth as solar moves from vanilla grid-connected projects to newer and more innovative forms of use.

The target of 175GW of renewable energy by 2022 and the formation of the International Solar Alliance with India in the lead are examples of our commitment towards clean energy. With both solar and wind power established as being cheaper than coal-based power, going by economic logic alone, majority of India’s future capacity additions should be through renewables.
