This report examines renewable energy manufacturing policies in India, China, Germany and Spain, and assesses various aspects associated with each stage of solar value chain. It proposes a development trajectory for solar sourcing and manufacturing industry over a 2032 time frame with the objective of achieving energy security at an optimal cost. Also, the study proposes several measures in finance, standards and benchmarking, materials and technology and research and development to promote and support domestic manufacturing in solar technology.
This report therefore aims to identify the main issues and challenges faced by India’s solar PV manufacturing industry and provide a specific set of policy recommendations for boosting solar PV manufacturing in the country.
This report analyses the rooftop solar sector and makes recommendations to meet India's target of 40 GW rooftop solar capacity by 2022. Specifically, the report recommends measures that can facilitate progress towards this target without any additional subsidies.
This guide aims at explaining the relevance of quality assurance for a sustainable market development, besides providing an overview of quality assurance measures applied to solar thermal products and installations around the world. It also indicates some possible steps in order to set up a quality assurance system in a country.
This publication tries to provide guidelines for policy and framework conditions related to solar heating and cooling, in particular solar water heating. It aims at providing a quick overview of the main issues to be considered for setting the right framework for the promotion of the solar thermal technology. Therefore, it outlines key recommendations and guidelines for the implementation of a programme for the promotion of solar water heating.
This roadmap pathway is focusing on the standardized and cost optimal solutions to integrate solar thermal technology in all industrial processes, by developing collector structures adapted to industrial buildings, improved large-scale solar collector arrays, and new planning and design tools.
