The solar power sector in India has seen a transformational change with progressive policy-level changes and near-effective implementation of directives. Since 2010, when the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) was launched, policymakers and regulators have been actively customising the policy and institutional framework to promote growth and address challenges, while taking cognizance of the emerging trends and opportunities in the space. A number of fiscal incentives have been provided to the sector, policies and regulations have been clearly devised and standard practices have been set. But more importantly, multiple steps have been taken to resolve the fundamental issues that may have hindered healthy growth of solar power capacity in India.

Implementation of UDAY programme to resolve the most fundamental problem of power sector - dismal discom credit profiles due to high debt, heavy losses and poor operational efficiencies that affects every aspect of the Indian power sector. The progress so far has been extremely positive.

The Green Energy Corridor initiative to facilitate the transfer of power from the high renewable energy installation states to other parts of the country is the most crucial part to the sector’s future growth story, although the progress of its development has not been impressive so far. Once complete, the green energy corridor is expected to boost the inter-state sale of renewable energy, and coupled with the waiver of Inter State Transmission System charges, renewable energy costs are forecast to come down enough to help states fulfill their renewable purchase obligations and meet energy demand.

To sum up, building on the achievements and developments in the past five to six years, the country seems to have built a significant ground for impacting and accelerating the future development of solar power. Meeting the 100 GW target will be a big challenge but the aforementioned trends paint a promising picture for all the stakeholders.
