20-09-2012, DLF City Club, Gurgaon: India  is  rich  in  renewable  sources  of  energy  with considerable  future  potential.  This  clean  energy source  is  progressing  rapidly  thereby  accelerating  use of  resources  in  powering  the  growing  economy  with a  secure and affordable energy supply. As per Ministry of New and renewable Energy (MNRE), Installed grid connected  renewable  power  generation  capacity  of India  stands  at  21.12  GW, constituting  more than  11%  of the total installed capacity base of the country. Over the  decade,  energy  and  peak  demand  shortage averaged  around  10.3%  and  12.9%  respectively,  citing which renewable energy is playing an ever increasing role.

India  has initiated  impressive  strides  to  promote solar energy in the Renewable segment. The availability of abundant  solar  energy  has  prompted  policy  makers of the  country  to  frame  favourable  policies  and regulations  to  develop  the  solar  energy  resources.  The growth of solar power production is spectacular and  the  fastest- growing  of  al l   the  electricity generating sectors,  chiefly  PV markets.

In  2013,  India’s installed  capacity  has  seen  mammoth increased to over 2000 MW. The various bidding rounds issued  by  the  national  and  regional  governments  have been  met  with  unprecedented  enthusiasm  from national  and  international  players.  The  present  central  and  state policies  for  Solar  Energy  is  developing  favourable conditions  and  various  new  business  models  are emerging  which  reinforce  the  exponential  market growth for  solar  projects. The current  opportunities are attracting the intense excitement from entrepreneurs and investors to be a part of the solar growth  story  of  India.  Despite  of  a  good  response,  the  economy  has  to  deal  with various  types  of  contractual structures  and  financing  mechanisms  to  contend with.

Firstgreen regularly organises organised capacity development workshops on solar PV projects development which endow  with an  incisive map of the market opportunities, segments, models and barriers in  solar, guiding the participants through the  site  selection,  technology  selection,  finance,planning  & development  process  in  a  systematic  step by-step approach. To give a real time impression, these workshops focus on International and Indian Case  studies  on both the  soar  photovoltaic (SPV)  as well  as  on  the  Concentrated  Solar  Power  (CSP) technologies  for  grid  connected  power  generation.

Firstgreen workshops are conducted by some  of the  most experienced  industry  professionals  and  renowned personalities  of  the  Power  sector  space.
