Conference on Solar Invest 2017On 8th February 2017 at 9.30 AM– Hotel Park Hyatt – Hyderabad
ASSOCHAM with the support of FTAPCCI is organizing a Conference on “Solar Invest – 2017” on 8th February 2017 at 9.30 amat Hotel Park Hyatt, Hyderabad.
Solar power tariff have fallen below Rs. 5/kwh since November 2016 as the cost of producing power continue to decline. Solar PV tariff could reduce further due to the innovation and research that is going on to enhance manufacturing efficiency and plant output. India is expected to have an annual cell module manufacturing capacity of 5GW by 2022.  However, improving grid stability to evacuate solar power would need large investment in utility infrastructure. Land Acquisition, finalization of power purchase agreement and power evacuation are the three major risks involved with solar power projects in India.

In view of the major contemporary relevance of the above and related issues to be discussed, we shall greatly appreciate and value participation from your Company/organization/department as an Invitee. Prior Registration is a must for participation and please confirm your participation to :
