Solar energy is the cleanest form of renewable energy available on earth. Solar has the power to produce electrical energy that can be used in our daily lives on a regular basis. With most of the developed nations already switching to solar as one of their primary energy resources, the future of the solar industry is tremendously bright in India too. One of the major reasons is because India is a tropical country and receives solar radiation almost throughout the year.
Currently, India is facing an acute energy scarcity that is hampering the industrial growth and economic progress of the country. While setting up new power plants is dependent majorly on the import of highly volatile fossil fuels, the nation can’t depend entirely on them. On the other hand, solar energy systems can produce power at minimum maintenance with zero-emission making it easy and environment-friendly at the same time.
The solar radiation received in India amounts to 3,000 hours of sunshine in a year that is equal to more than 5,000 trillion kWh. The majority of locations in India receive 4-7 kWh of solar radiation per-sq meters that is equivalent to 2,300–3,200 hours of sunshine every year. States like Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal receive the solar radiation in abundance with great potential to produce solar power. Also, with the majority of the population living in rural areas of the country, there is a huge scope for solar energy being promoted in such areas.
In order to address India’s energy security challenge, the National Solar Mission has been introduced as a major initiative by the Government of India to promote ecologically sustainable growth. The mission is a major contribution by India to the global effort to meet the challenges of climate change. While the objective of the mission is to establish India as the global leader in solar energy, the aim of the National Solar Mission is to focus on setting up an environment for solar technology penetration in the country at a centralized and decentralized level.
There are several other solar projects proposed in India. Such as-
1. The solar project at Thar Desert of India
2. The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM)
3. Solar power policy in Gujarat
According to the reports, the solar installed capacity of India has reached 33.730 GW by the end of 2019. This means that the country has achieved the Indian government’s target of producing 20 GW capacity by 2022, four years ahead of the schedule. This shows the huge potential in terms of the future of the solar industry in India.
