Growth in the last 5 years
Government PLI Schemes for PV Modules
The government has enhanced the funding under the production linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the domestic solar cells and module manufacturing to Rs 24,000 crore from the existing Rs 4,500 crore to make India an exporting nation. “Government has brought the PLI scheme (for solar cells and modules) worth Rs 4,500 crore. They invited bids and got 54,500 MW manufacturing capacity of solar equipment. Industry body asked the government to sanction Rs 19,000 crore more under the PLI, which was approved (in-principle). Now Solar Module has a PLI of Rs 24,000 crore.
Going forward, the production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for solar manufacturing would advance Vikram Solar capacity enhancement plans.
India’s solar industry is expected to grow faster in 2021, with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy aiming to achieve its ambitious target of having 114 GW solar capacity by 2022. The Indian government is working to develop a green city in each state by installing solar rooftop systems on all houses and solar parks on the city’s outskirts.
Factors Favouring the growth of Solar Cell
a) Reduction in solar tariff: One of the major growth drivers for solar power in India is the reduction in solar tariffs from ~7.36/kWh (US 10 cents/kWh) in FY 2014-15 to ~2.63/kWh (US 3.57 cents/kWh) in FY 2019-20.
b) Make in India initiative: The Government of India is actively promoting development of domestic solar cell and module manufacturing capacity through various schemes under the Make in India initiative.
c) Extension of safeguards tariff: In December 2020, India also extended the safeguard tariff on imported solar cells and modules for another year.
d) Rent a Roof’ Policy: In 2017, the Government of India introduced a ‘rent a roof’ strategy to encourage solar power generation. This boosted the country’s goal of producing 40 GW solar power from rooftop installations by 2022. However, pandemic-induced restrictions slowed growth, but when the situation normalises, the policy will help push the solar sector.
e) Solar Innovation: Another growth driver for the solar market is its innovation focus, which brought to the market light-sensitive nanoparticles, bifacial solar modules, floating solar panels, among others.
Challenges in Solar Business
a) The DisCom Issue: The Government of India took several measures like Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY Scheme) instituted in 2015 to address the financial challenges faced by power distribution companies (DisComs). However, sequential lockdown during COVID-19 made it difficult for government agencies to get power distribution companies to sign a formal Power Sale Agreement.
b) Subdued electricity demand: Decreased electricity demand has emerged as a major challenge. While the concern has persisted, the pandemic caused demand levels to go down further
c) Land acquisition issues: Land allotment for renewable energy is a major concern. To address this issue, the Government of India introduced policies like ‘rent a roof’ strategy to boost solar power, but pandemic-induced restrictions brought forth unprecedented challenges.
Indian Solar Market Overview
In India, the solar PV market plummeted to the lowest level in five years. However, India is at the sixth position in terms of new solar power installations in 2020 and fifth largest in terms of overall capacity. During the year, around 4.4 GW of solar PV capacity was added, bringing the total national capacity to 47.4 GW. Pandemic-related lockdowns and labour shortages caused delay in project construction and auctions, which caused the de-growth. Additionally, government agencies struggled to get distribution companies to sign Power Sale Agreements (PSA), leaving roughly 17-18 GW of solar projects without a PSA.
Apart from that, rising cost of raw materials and PV modules, as well as increasing shipping and freight costs, all contributed to the solar industry’s decline. Additionally, the utility-scale solar project, which amounts to ~78% of the capacity installed in 2020, also declined by 60% year-on-year, with 2.520 GW installations. Rooftop market shrunk by 22% with 0.719 GW installations. In the utility-scale solar power segment, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, and Rajasthan are the top three states, contributing ~51% of the installations.
