The 1st Solar Industry Summit India conference will take place Jan.13, 2011, during Glasspex India 2011, International Exhibition for Glass Production, Processing and Products, Jan. 12–14, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, according to a Nov. 17 release. Many of the glass and machinery manufacturers attending the trade fair are closely linked to the solar energy industry and are often among the top global companies in this market. Taking part in the 1st Solar Industry Summit India offers them the opportunity to get a comprehensive overview of the latest products and production technologies in the solar energy sector while meeting new contacts, all in one place.

The main focus of the conference, apart from the development, financing and construction of production facilities, will be the state-of-the-art production technologies, quality assurance standards and the international solar energy market. In addition to companies interested in investing in solar power production technology in India, the key target groups of the conference include the planners of production facilities and the manufacturers of solar modules, solar cells, production components and accessories.

Organized by Solarpraxis AG and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH/Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt. Ltd., 1st Solar Industry Summit India will be an ideal platform to meet solar technology experts and decision-makers from around the world and tor network with potential business partners, according to the release. High-quality speakers, including politicians and representatives from trade associations and the solar energy industry, will present specific approaches on how photovoltaic technology can be used more intensively in India and how new production facilities can be established.

India has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world for a number of years and this economic growth is accompanied by a rapid increase in the country’s energy demand. The Indian government recently established the “Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission” in order to achieve greater independence from fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil. The aim of this project is to encourage energy production using solar power plants. By the year 2022, India aims to have an installed capacity of photovoltaic plants of 22,000 MWp. In order to achieve this goal, the Indian government has given this project top priority.

In the future, India not only wants to use more electricity from solar power plants, but also wants to produce the necessary photovoltaic modules itself. An extensive range of incentives has been developed to encourage the set-up of production facilities. Research and development in the field of solar technology are to be pushed and the demand for solar energy is anticipated to grow steadily. The government will support the growth of the solar energy industry with incentives and financing concepts such as tax breaks and a simplified approval procedure. “Our vision is to make the economic development of India energy efficient”, explained the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, according to the release.
