India’s 100 GW Solar Ambition

India has always been seen as a land of immeasurable opportunity, constrained by the limitation of a finite resource base. We are a land of rich cultural heritage, with a poor population. A nation of abundant human capital, but limited real estate. A multitude of opinions, with a protracted vision. Therefore, it seemed only natural when our Nation’s leadership decided to make India a leader in an Industry where the ‘Input resource’ is infinitely available…

As ambitious as India’s National Solar mission of 20GW was in 2010 when it was announced by our erstwhile Prime Minister – Respected Mr. Manmohan Singh, the sheer resolve with which the newly elected political leadership under the aegis of Shri Narender Modiji has pursued the targeted addition of 100 GW capacity of Solar Energy in India by 2022, has made the previously ‘ambitious’ target seem merely parliamentary in today’s changed landscape of action-based governance.

Through this blog, we shall seek to bring to an international audience the latest developments from India’s Solar Industry, echoing the belief of participants in India’s solar market in our country’s governance, and their ability to achieve what many may see as impossible!

We hope you enjoy reading the updates, and look forward to your views and feedback.

Here’s to India’s new Political Leadership & its Pro-active governance as they look to ‘Save a little sunshine!’
