The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) in India has made updates to its Approved List of Models and Manufacturers (ALMM) with the inclusion of five new entrants. These additions contribute a cumulative module manufacturing capacity of 343 MW to the ALMM.


The newly enlisted module manufacturers are SAEL (141 MW), Rhine Solar (43 MW), Spark Solar (42 MW), Genus Innovation (22 MW), and Fujiyama Power Systems (95 MW). With these additions, the ALMM now comprises 82 module manufacturers with a total listed module capacity of 19.19 GW.

Notably, the updated ALMM continues to exclude any Chinese manufacturers. The enlistment in ALMM List-1 is based on the requirement that the module efficiency of the models must be equal to or greater than 19%. Manufacturers whose models’ validity expired on March 9, 2023, and did not apply for renewal have been delisted by the ministry.


These updates by the MNRE reflect the government’s commitment to promoting domestic solar manufacturing and expanding the renewable energy sector. The ALMM serves as a reference for project developers and government agencies to identify approved and reliable module manufacturers for solar installations across the country.

The inclusion of new entrants with significant module manufacturing capacities will contribute to India’s goal of increasing solar power generation and reducing dependence on imports. The MNRE’s efforts to maintain transparency and quality standards through the ALMM play a crucial role in driving the growth of the domestic solar industry.
