PV project development community to drive forces towards a sustainable industry in India on July 2012
PV Insider is delighted to announce the launch of its PV Project Development Summit India 2012 (New Delhi, July 30–31).
The photovoltaic industry in India is making headway in the renewable energy landscape at a fast pace, with a constant and stable growth in the amount of PV projects. Recent reports estimate that the objectives of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (20GW by 2020) might be exceeded by approximately 67%; achieving 33.4 GW of PV installed capacity by 2022, while the grid parity is anticipated to be achieved by 2018. However, the market is still young and unsettled, facing various challenges including the high capital cost of solar PV, which is the main reason why the industry still needs further external incentives to be economically feasible.
With key issues being asked by developers in India, including how to demonstrate the industry’s feasibility and achieve financial closure, which are the best PV technology options for the Indian market and how to adapt the technical knowledge and best practices from the international PV players to the Indian market; the 1st PV Project Development Summit, taking place in July 30-31 in New Delhi will cover these issues in more detail than ever before.
Headlining the conference will be a series of detailed case studies, interactive panel sessions and extended industry discussions; providing delegates with a strategy to achieve competitiveness and industry sustainability; through the expertise from government officials, leading developers, utilities perspectives, international technology experts and members of the entire supply chain in India, all in one place.

The technical detail at this summit, along with the unique opportunity to meet with top level decision makers from the entire PV community in India and abroad, makes it a must-attend. The two day session is looking to answer key questions on how to streamline and optimize utility scale PV projects, increase its competitive advantages and seize the best new opportunities in the Indian market.
