Solar Power in India estimated to rise to 9 GW in 2016

According to a new report from GTM Research and Bridge to India, solar power is going to boom in India in the next couple of years. While solar power has played a minimal role in India’s energy mix in recent years, India is going to turn that all around and is aiming to become a solar powerhouse in the next few years. Increasing power demand, increasing fossil fuel prices, an ambition national solar plan (the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission), solar incentives offered by states, renewable and solar energy quotas, and quickly falling solar costs are likely to drive the India solar market to over 9,000 megawatts by 2016.
