What differentiates our conferences?

  • The agenda is developed by our researchers, who track the sector round the year. It is thus relevant and topical. It is not driven by a particular organisation and does not have a particular slant.
  • The speakers are professionals and experts involved in the sector, not a mix of ambassadors, ministers, celebrities and business owners.
  • The conferences do not just comprise panels and speeches; they provide a good mix of expert presentations and case histories, and of course panel discussions.
  • We have representation from across the country, as is the case at our physical conferences too.
  • Each stakeholder group – policymakers, developers, financiers, consultants and relevant NGOs – is represented at our conferences.
  • The moderators merely ask the questions. The stars are the speakers themselves.
  • The sessions begin and end on time.
  • There is adequate time for a Q&A session with each speaker. These are not “hit and run” speeches.
  • The delegates are professionals who are vested in the sector, and are not just assembled through social media
  • A recap of the conference is also made available to reinforce the key takeaways. available

  • While renewables have witnessed significant growth over the past decade, the solar power segment has clearly outshone others in terms of growth and uptake. Thisgrowth is well reflected in the fact that solar power capacity in India has increased from about 10 MW in 2010 to about 36 GW today, a steep 3,600 times increase in the span of a decade.
  • Although growth in 2020 has been hampered by the Covid-19 crisis, overall, solar in India has reached 36 per cent of the government’starget of 100 GW by 2022, and currently accounts for 4 per cent of the country’s renewable energy generation mix.
  • Within the solar power space, utility-scale projects have driven large-scale capacities.However, the share of rooftop solar has also started increasing over the past few years. Driven by a significant decline in equipment costs and supportive government policies, rooftop solar projects are rapidly finding their way into the energy mix of institutional, commercial and industrial consumers. Residential consumers have, however, been slow to adopt these systems.
  • Niche solutions such as floating and canal-based solar photovoltaics have also emerged as attractive alternatives to ground-based projects. However, actual growth in this space is only set to happen now, as cost efficiency starts setting in.
  • The market is already experiencing new dynamics. New bids such as solar-wind hybrids; solar power-based energy storage; round-the-clock, peak power supply; and open trade of power have opened up avenues for innovation.
  • Meanwhile, the Covid-19 situation and the resultant supply chain issues have underlined the importance of self-reliance. The government has been laying emphasis onlocal production under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan and Make in India initiatives. Ithas also been taking steps such as the extension of safeguard duties on imported solar cells and modules, promotion of manufacturing-linked tenders, and identification of land parcels across major ports to set up production units, in order to incentivise local production.
  • Issues and challenges pertaining to land constraints, off-takers’ risks, payment delays and grid integration of solar power are also being resolved, but at a very slow pace.
  • In terms of maintaining project quality, better asset management and demand-side management, made possible through data analytics and digitalisation of storage, will be key. With digitalised systems, it should be possible to realise the idea of prescriptive maintenance over preventive maintenance. Advancements in the design of solar plants and in maintaining grid stability will also cater to changing regulations and standards, as solar continues to increase in capacity and status.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the key trends and developments in the solar power sector, identify the potential strategies to fast-track development, showcase noteworthy projects and technologies, and highlight the near and medium-term outlook and opportunities for the solar power sector in India. The conference will also provide an excellent forum for all stakeholders including solar power developers, consultants, technology providers and equipment manufacturers to share their experience and exchange views.
