Grid-connected solar power is a new and rapidly growing sector in India – from almost nil grid- connected solar power in 2009, the country will have 2.5 gigawatts (GW) by 2014, if all goes as per plan.
It has already installed about 1.0 GW and the Union government plans to install 20 GW by 2022.
But there is hardly any independent research on how grid-connected projects are being implemented.
It was precisely for this reason that we at CSE decided to do a thorough research to understand what is working, and what is not, in grid-connected solar power. We are sure you will enjoy reading this analytical report, and understand in depth this sunrise sector.
