Solar 2010, September 21- 22, 2010 || New Delhi


IPFonline Limited (IPF), hosted the first conference devoted to ‘Solar Energy’ at The LaLit in New Delhi. The objective of the ‘Solar 2010’ conference & exhibition organised under the Renewable Energy India Forum was to focus on the challenging issues and opportunities available in the country for Solar Energy.

The first day of the conference witnessed leading Solar Energy Experts, Industry Leaders, Private & Govt. Financial Institutions, Technology Experts and Nodal Agencies like Shri. Bibek Bandyopadhyay, Advisor & Head, Solar Energy Centre, MNRE; Shri S P Gon Choudhury,  CMD, WBGEDCL; Mr. Jason Donovan, First Secretary, Energy, US Embassy; Shri H D Khunteta, Director, REC  . Mr. Amit Shah, Co-Chairman and Director, Astonfield Renewables Inc., Mr. Mahendra Swarup,  President, Indian Venture Capital Association, Ms Sumita Misra, Director, HAREDA, Indo-German Development Cooperation in the Energy Sector; Mr. Rajiv Jain, Associate Director, India Semiconductor Association,  Dr. Pardeep Chaturvedi,  Chairman, Indian Association for the Advancement of Science, Acciona Energy India; Shri B V Rao, General Manager (TS), IREDA, Mr. Alok Nigam, VP Business Development, Lanco Solar Energy Pvt. Ltd., Mr. Adam R Smith, MD Solar Solutions Pvt. Ltd. Dr. R K Bhogra, Ex GM and Head ASSCP, Mr. Jayant Deo CEO & MD IEX,  Dr. Mohan Bhan, VP, Moser Baer, Dr. Debajit Palit, TERI exchange their views, knowledge and expertise in the solar energy sector. Issues like financial feasibility and technical gullibility’s of solar power production, analysis of the of the Solar Equipment Manufacturing in India aligned to its global counterparts, and evaluation of required level of skilled manpower development to support the process was discussed.

Commenting on the initiative Mr. Linus Lobo, COO, IPFonline limited said, “A parallel utilization of renewable resources like solar, wind, bio-mass along with conventional energy is necessary to meet the current need- gap for energy. At the same time there is a huge untapped market for products harnessing renewable energy which is silently growing in our own backyard. The objective for creation of Renewable Energy India Forum Energy is to bring forth and support ideas and innovations in a focussed manner and thereby ultimately contribute to catalysing the shift to clean green living.  Solar 2010 marks our first step towards this progressive effort and we hope to achieve successful results in the coming years.”

Some facts:

  • With the alarming rise in the consumption of energy in the country, India is increasingly dependent on fossil fuels such as coal and oil & gas. But with the global rising prices of oil and gas and potential shortages in future lead to concerns about the security of energy supply, which is critical for sustainable economic growth. Simultaneously, deploying natural resources like fossil fuels are a major concern for environmental issues universally. Thus it is critical at this juncture to explore new avenues of energy production and promote the distinct advantages of renewable energy. Certain key factors indicating vast opportunity for exploitation of renewable energy sources for power generation in India are:

Text Box: The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission aims to produce 22 Gigawatts of Solar Power by 2022. The capacity addition comprises large photovoltaic and solar thermal power plants and smaller rooftop PV systems, two GW of off-grid distributed solar plants, 20 million square meters of solar collectors for low temperature applications, and 20 million solar lighting systems for rural areas

  • As against the estimated 80000 MW renewable energy based grid connected power generation potential in the country, the realized installed capacity is only about 6000 MW.
  • The renewable energy based power generation capacity presently constitutes only 5% of the total installed capacity in the country.
  • The Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources is aiming to achieve up to 10% of additional installed capacity to be set up till 2012 to come from renewable energy sources.
  • India is endowed with enormous solar energy potential. About 5,000 trillion kWh per year energy is incident over India's land area with most parts receiving 4-7 kWh per sq. m per day. Hence both technology routes for conversion of solar radiation into heat and electricity, namely, solar thermal and solar photovoltaics, can effectively be harnessed providing huge scalability for solar in India.
