India's rooftop solar installations crossed 10 GW in June 2023 as per MNRE. While this is a significant achievement, the huge potential in the rooftop solar segment is still untapped as a result of various cost, technology and infrastructure bottlenecks. More policy and regulatory support at both central and state level can help grow the sector further. Industry experts and policymakers will discuss these issues in this session.
