Driving India to a 20GW+ cell & module production powerhouse: what needs to happen to transform the Indian upstream sector over the next five years

  • India’s desire to match its end-market deployment targets with strong contributions from a thriving domestic upstream segment – falling under the wider make-in-India initiative – has created almost equal levels of opportunity and challenges in order to implement successfully.
  • Indeed, just moving domestic supply levels from less than 10% today, in order to capture about half of the annual end-market installations levels in the next 3-5 years, will necessitate multi-billion dollar investments into the correct technologies being fast-tracked into multi-GW production levels over the next 12-24 months.
  • The session will hear from investors, manufacturers and market-experts on how India can move into global manufacturing excellence, allowing its upstream sector to ship technology-leading products profitably, meeting the requirements of downstream industry stakeholders.
