INVITE: CRISIL Web-conference | Will it be sunny days for solar? | June 28 | 3:00 pm onwards

India’s solar industry is aggressively moving towards achieving the government’s target of installing 100 GW capacity by 2021-22. To facilitate this, both the central and state governments are providing several incentives, preparing land banks for solar parks, augmenting transmission infrastructure and implementing the UDAY scheme to improve the finances of distribution companies.

But aggressive bidding, poor grid access, and limited availability — and high cost — of domestic debt are long shadows. Further, rooftop solar projects, despite favourable economics, are witnessing limited traction because of regulatory hurdles such as net metering, poor distribution infrastructure and delays in payment of subsidies.

In this backdrop, CRISIL Research invites you to its web conference titled, “Will it be sunny days for solar?” to share its views on the industry and the competitive landscape.
