From being a side-story in the Indian solar sector, rooftop solar segment is beginning to become the mainstream growth driver. The government has announced attractive policies such as net metering, subsidies for select customers and cheaper debt financing for the segment, although there is huge scope for improvement on every front. Railways, metro authorities, airports, ports, etc. are significantly driving growth in this space. A number of other large and medium industrial/commercial users are investing in this space to optimise their energy bills as well as to meet their RPOs.
The report on rooftop solar market in India will provide an in-depth analysis on market size and growth potential for rooftop systems; targets and incentives; policy incentives and regulatory set up, by state; tender analysis and results; key player analysis; rooftop plans of large commercial users like railways and metro authorities as well as various industrial users; update on net metering; emerging business models (opex, capex, lease); key issues and challenges; and future outlook and project pipeline.
