The Adani SEZ at Mundra, Gujarat, which houses two mega power projects based on imported coal, is witnessing a mega green plan.
canada goose uk black friday The one of a kind facility, amidst the fossil fuel guzzling structures of port, coal plant and other manufacturing units, hints at the paradigm shift India Inc needs to take in re aligning its energy mix. canada goose uk black friday
Using state of the art technology, including robotics and equipment from world leaders in the solar sector, the facility has generated close to 2,000 jobs.
This unit is canada goose outlet jackets all the more remarkable because it comes at a time when cheap Chinese solar panels have become entrenched in the Indian market.
So, though Adani Green Energy executives are confident of their technology matching the global trend, competitive pricing and demand are likely to remain challenges.
Canada Goose Parka Priced some 10 to 20 per cent lower than Indian competitors, Chinese panels have been making their way into India since the beginning of the National Solar Mission in 2010. Canada Goose Parka
Over the past three years, global overcapacity has seen the price of panels crash to 32 cents per kWh from 50 cents per kWh.
canada goose clearance sale No surprise, then, that domestic solar modules manufacturers canada goose outlet real have approached the Directorate General for Anti Dumping for the second time to levy penalties on Chinese counterparts for dumping ultra cheap panels in India. canada goose clearance sale
The domestic industry via the Indian Solar Manufacturers Association has pleaded for a retrospective duty on importers, arguing that steady imports have considerably damaged the indigenous sector.
The current installed capacity of Indian solar cell manufacturing is around 1,386 MW and that of modules (a packaged connect assembly of solar cells) is canada goose parka uk close https://www.canadagoosessale.org to 2,500 MW. Less than 20 per cent of canada goose factory outlet vancouver manufacturing capacity is operational for lack of demand.
Of the total solar power generating capacity, more than 75 per cent is built on imported cells from China, 15 per cent from the US and domestic producers account for the rest.

The industry is, however, unsure whether this alone will bring achche din for solar panel and module makers.
was never a canada goose outlet black friday sale time to prepare ourselves to match the growth of solar capacity coupled with the fact that Chinese products entered in the Indian market, said Tata Power Solar canada goose outlet las vegas Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Ashish Khanna.

In its latest CEO survey, it mentioned that 55 per cent of the sector CEOs feel that poor quality equipment is being dumped in India in response to the sharp fall in prices.
Indeed, more than 85,000 crore ( 850 billion) worth of investments in the country have canada goose outlet canada been dormant on account of cheap Chinese imports, resulting in, as one industry analysis puts it, the creation of a self inflicted loss making industry.
Khanna feels imposing duty would hardly help because eco system is still missing for solar manufacturing in India. modules typically comes with a performance commitment of 25 years. Quoting international reports, he points out that in one in five companies in China is going off the radar every year. there is a possibility that all five of them will go off radar in five years.
Touted as a strict quality measure to filter out sub standard content, both domestic and imported panels will be under its purview.
MNRE has listed six standards for different equipment, including solar panels and batteries used in solar power projects.
The standards are designed under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act and would be governed by it and enforced after 12 months.
cheap Canada Goose is a good move that will counter low quality imports and will be extremely useful in the distributed generation and rooftop segment where the end user is technically not sophisticated, said Ratul Puri, chairman, Hindustan Power. cheap Canada Goose

Initially, a portion of projects under National Solar Mission was reserved for domestic manufacturers, but the World Trade Organisation regulations ruled that out.
