India is home to the 4th largest installed Renewable Energy Capacity, and 5th largest Solar Energy capacity in the world, with an ambitious target of 500 GW Non – Fossil Fuel Energy Capacity by 2030, with around 300 GW from Solar Energy sector alone to be set up.
Accelerating the Solar Energy Deployment would require huge investments in developing indigenous Solar module/cell manufacturing, disruptive technology and global collaborations. India has numerous opportunities for German companies to invest in this energy transition journey in different sectors like, Solar Module Manufacturing, Energy Storage, Green Hydrogen etc.
NSEFI as an umbrella organization of all solar energy stakeholders of India invites all concerned stakeholders to this session on “Indian Solar Energy Market Outlook”, focusing on opportunities and exploring India as an investment destination.
About KVP Project between NSEFI and BSW-Solar
In order to support this market development aims the KVP (Business Membership Organisation Partnerships) project between the National Solar Energy Federation of India (NSEFI) and the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) to help India accelerate energy transition. Activities such as the improvement, adaptation and diversification of the services of NSEFI, as well as the exchange and cooperation of the two associations are foreseen.
This project is supported by sequa gGmbH as part of the Business Membership Organisation Partnerships (KVP) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
