Ⅳ. Press Release:
12,000 visitors, 800 conference attendees and 240 exhibitors: October 21 marked the end of the hugely successful eighth Intersolar India, India’s largest exhibition and conference for the solar industry, which was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. The number of visitors was 10% higher than at the previous year’s event, and the number of exhibitors increased by an impressive 20%. The positive development of the Indian solar market was noticeable at the exhibition. Businesses and investors made the most of the opportunity to network, and numerous agreements and collaborations were initiated. The organizers also reported positively on the conference, where around 800 attendees discussed India's solar industry with 122 speakers.
The accompanying conference took place in parallel on October 19 and 20. A central topic was private and industrial rooftop systems. In the session Commercial & Industrial Rooftop Systems – Field Experience in India, Dr. Nalin Shinghal, Chairman and Managing Director of Central Electronics Ltd., explained that rooftop systems will achieve grid parity in the near future. This is an important step, since although India plans to install 40 GW of solar capacity on private rooftop systems, its current capacity is just 800 megawatts. Sukesh Kumar Jain, Power Secretary for the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi, told the session titled Residential Rooftop Systems – System Design and Field Experience in India that the city will play a central, pioneering role. By 2020, he said, 1 GW of private rooftop systems should be installed there, with a further GW installed by 2025. There was also discussion around the challenges facing the expansion of private rooftop systems. Arvind Karandikar, Managing Director at Nexus Energytech Pvt. Ltd., mentioned that the financing of these systems must be structured more simply and that business models in this area need better support.
