Summary

Indian PV manufacturing flourished until 2010 when low cost Chinese modules made entry. The steady fall in the imported module prices over the past years lead to ever shrinking fortunes for the local manufacturers. The DCR introduced in 2013 helped the Indian manufacturers to survive. However the WTO ruling against DCR has shaken the solar manufacturers, already under squeeze from lower cost imported modules, lack of scale and incentives. Under the “Make in India” program, Government is trying to extend incentives and it is hoped that the right manufacturing ecosystem would emerge soon. In this session, experts drawn from manufacturing industry, industry association and policy makers would discuss the issues and present their suggestions on reviving the Indian PV manufacturing to its past glory.
