EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

Solar PV in India- Opportunities

  • India has ideal solar conditions for applications of PV technology nearly similar to California, Spain and Australia and far better than Germany
  • India needs a political will to introduce attractive incentive package for renewable energy projects and to engage thriving middle classes and innovative businesses in this technology
slide9

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

Solar PV in India- Opportunities

  • It appears that the planners in Indiaview solar energy only as a solution to rural or remote area electrification
  • All forms modern renewable energy sources, including Solar energy, are difficult to use in rural India due to
    • high initial investments and
    • dependence on storage for the night use and lack of grid connections as a back-up system
  • However involvement of prosperous middle classes and enterprising business community in Solar energy applications will transform the Indian renewable energy sector

How do they do it?

  • The EU, US, and Japan experience suggest that growth in use of renewable energy is higher in those states that offer better incentives such as grants, subsidies and tax reduction
slide16

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

German Energy Act 2000

  • In 2002 the purchase price of solar PV energy to producers was fixed at €O.48/kWh with an annual reduction of 5%
  • Every single unit of PV electricity produced is counted as a grid connected unit and paid accordingly
  • Similar to Germany a number of other EU countries, with a successful renewable energy industry, have introduced incentives for solar energy projects, latest is the France in August 2006
slide17

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and OpportunitiesGerman Solar Energy initiatives

  • Between 1998 and 2003 the German Government offered €1.4 billion in grants and soft loans and tax cuts to the renewable energy industries and users in Germany
  • This attracted €6.2 billion private investment
  • Created RE energy with annual turnover of €9.2 billion and over 135,000 jobs in Germany
  • In 2005 the German domestic and commercial PV installation increased by 53%
slide18

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

Solar PV in India- Opportunities

  • It is possible that with attractive incentives like Germany, EU or California
  • Investment of US $3 billion we can release the economic potential of people to create a multi billion dollar industry to reduce fuel imports and satisfy increasing energy demands
  • Like California India can also produce 3,000 MW of peak time electricity in urban areas
  • This is equal to 2 or 3 Nuclear power plants which cost about $20 billion each
slide29

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

Solar PV in India- Opportunities

  • Recent MNES advertisement in the national papers for the soft loans to general public without conditions or restrictions of income is a step in the right direction
  • If taken up by one million people in India then the government is likely save equilevallent about 890,000 barrels of oil annually
  • It is likely to result in an annual saving of about Rs. 260 Crore if oil price remain @ $ 65/b
slide30

EICC- Europe meets India:Challenges and Opportunities

Solar PV in India- Opportunities

  • Impact of German or California style incentive in India will be unimaginable
  • Induction of about $ 3 billion in tax incentives, soft loans and grants to the educational institutions and government buildings and private users will transform energy consumption pattern in India
  • One million homes in a year, using solar energy during the day will reduce India’s oil imports by over US $ 300 billion per year for over 30 years
slide31
