The Indian solar market is experiencing strong growth, bringing it ever closer to the Indian government’s goal of increasing the installed photovoltaic capacity to 100 gigawatts by 2022. Against the backdrop of this progress, Intersolar India is taking place from October 19–21, 2016 in the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai.

Over 230 exhibitors are presenting their products, services and solutions for the solar industry. The exhibition is accompanied by a conference, where the Indian solar market and private roof-mounted installations are the center of attention.

India’s installed solar capacity has grown to 8.1 GW

According to the “India Solar Map 2016” India’s installed solar capacity grew by 80% to 8.1 GW from mid-2015 to mid-2016. 75% of the deployment took place in four states in the south. When all the projects currently under construction are added, the result is a total photovoltaic capacity of 23 GW.

The market conditions are therefore ideal for Intersolar India, the organisers note. The Intersolar exhibitions celebrate their 25th anniversary this year. Over 11,000 visitors are expected at the exhibition space in the Bombay Exhibition Centre.

Conference in parallel with the exhibition

The Intersolar India Conference is taking place in parallel with the exhibition. The session titled “Residential Rooftop Systems – System Design and Field Experience in India” offers visitors the opportunity to find out more about private roof-mounted installations. Experts, market analysts, architects and decision makers are set to share their experiences with regulations, client expectations and technical problems.

Another conference highlight: Experts from operations and maintenance will be discussing the question “Operation & Maintenance – a Burgeoning Business in India?”. This session will address uncertainties, risks, challenges and other factors which companies in this field face in the Indian solar market.
