Date: 2020-07-06
In New Delhi, the Indian government has proposed a major push to increase domestic solar energy equipment manufacturing in an effort to eliminate the need for imports, particularly from countries such as China.

To that end, a manufacturing incentives plan is being developed to push solar cell manufacturing capacity of 4,000 MW. Additionally, 3,000 MW of fresh solar cell capacity is being added under manufacturing linked bids for solar projects. This would incentivise power project developers planning manufacturing in India.

India's present solar cell manufacturing capacity is roughly 2,500 MW. (Source: Various Media, Hans News Service, 5 July, 2020)
