Remove Pitfalls on Way to Targets
Despite the Centre's thrust to renewable energy, state governments are not an active party to the renewable energy wave. If the Centre and states collaborate, things would be easier for achieving targets.
Solar has many unique attributes which make it a preferred source of power, particularly in India, a densely populated country with a high energy deficit - where it can be rapidly deployed across most parts of the country, due to its modular nature and by virtue of it being environment friendly.
GoI should ensure a market for investors
Because there is demand due to GoI´s target of 100 GW, many companies are taking interest in solar. But, if manufacturers are unable to compete in terms of pricing, then it is going to become difficult. Whether this goal is achievable, I cannot say that.
Own a Powerhouse
The prime minister´s enormous ambition of installing 100 GW (or 100,000 MW) of solar power plants by 2022, in seven years straight, up from just 4 GW today, has set the momentum for solar power generation in India.
At Rs.6-7/kWh, user benefits without any investment
Solar power is now available at Rs 5 or Rs 6, having come down significantly. But it all depends on how all the logistics are developed around that and ultimately how effectively the benefits are passed on to the consumer.
