Over 300 million people still have no access to electricity, which is why solar power is being seen as a viable, long-term source of clean energy. Solar energy, a clean renewable resource with zero emissions, has tremendous potential of energy to be harnessed using a variety of devices.
India is on course to emerge as a solar power hub, and will become one of the largest green energy producers in the world. This can be clearly seen from the fact that India has become the second-biggest solar-energy installer in the world in just two years. Also, according to estimates, Indian solar-energy capacity will get increased by 300 percent this year and next.
As part of its blueprint for energy security, government plans to float five funds of $5 billion each, targeted at promoting green energy sources.
Prime Minister Modi’s target is to achieve 100 GW of solar power capacity by 2022 with an estimated investment of around US$ 100 billion.
Realising the immense potential and emerging opportunities existing in solar industry. Exhibitions India Group is organising the 2nd edition of Solar India 2017 expo which will be held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 10-12 May 2017.
