    Can solar energy power India's growth story?


    0 Not allowed!
    The formal launch of the ambitious International Solar Alliance on March 1 in New Delhi, is an important landmark not only in India’s quest for energy security but also in meeting the global challenge of climate change.

    No strategy of ecologically sustainable development is possible unless there is a rapid and accelerated shift from economic activity based on fossil fuels to one based on renewable and clean sources of energy.

    Solar energy is the most promising of these renewable sources and India, as a tropical country, is uniquely positioned to make solar energy the centrepiece of its energy strategy.


    While welcoming the launch of the alliance one must be conscious of the major challenges that lie ahead.


    Solar energy is available in daylight hours and even then its availability is variable depending upon weather and cloud conditions.


    Technological innovation has to focus on cost effective, compact, reliable and environmentally sound storage in order to make solar power a stable and credible alternative to conventional power.




    Solar power requires space for laying out solar panels and in a densely populated country like India space is at a premium.

    Nevertheless, despite these challenges there are multiple applications of solar power which are already economically viable, in particular, in decentralised deployments.


    India has an unprecedented opportunity to develop solar industry because like China, it offers scale which is critical to reducing costs and to stimulate innovation.


    The success of the International Solar Alliance rests on the success India is able to achieve in its own ambitious National Solar Mission.


    In taking this initiative forward, it might be worthwhile to recall some of the thinking which went into the adoption of the mission by the then government in 2009 as part of the National Action Plan on Climate Change.

    There are solutions to tackle the space problem. They are:
    1. Rooftops
    2. Double faced panels
    3. Overhanging water bodies (This has been successfully implemented in Bihar)
    However, Govrernments, both State and Central should play a pro-active role. Karnataka is doing a good job in Bengaluru, where all new buildings have to install solar generation to cover 20% of the building's total requirement. Failing this the buildings are not provided with wate and/or power connections

    Great, Can you expand on your bullet points? Thanks
