Can Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan Help India’s Solar Manufacturing Sector?

India’s aggressive push for ‘Make in India’ to bolster domestic manufacturing and make its economy ‘self-reliant’ in the post-pandemic era is a welcome opportunity for India’s solar energy sector. Supply disruptions from China due to coronavirus outbreak and subsequent shortage of solar components and modules have impacted India’s ambitious energy target of achieving 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022. However, despite making significant progress in solar power generation since 2014 and emerging as the world’s third largest solar market, India’s domestic solar equipment manufacturing industry has not been able to capitalise on the opportunity. This raises an important question: does India have the core competence, capital and capacity required to offer domestic manufacturing of solar at a scale that could substitute for its massive imports?

In this Event we will assess can India finally kick-start its solar manufacturing sector, and bring light on building adequate infrastructure, supply chain and logistics, reducing the High cost of finance, scaling up manufacturing capabilities & focus on R&D and skill development. We will also have an exclusive Session to discuss the financing of the manufacturing sector.
