PV Insider releases the PV India Report: Cost, Performance and Project Development (2013)

PV Insider is pleased to announce the launch of the PV Insider India Report. This in-depth report provides real data on cost and performance to plan and optimize profitability in PV plants in India.

PV currently accounts for 99.3% of India's solar energy mix, and by the end of June 2012 exceeded the milestone of 1GW of installed PV systems with a cumulative deployment of 1030.7MW. Indicators show that PV is now gaining pace at an exponential rate. In June 2012, 51.7MW of PV was installed, representing 57.8% of the installed capacity for 2012 thus far (89.4MW).

With a significant number of projects due to become operational in the coming months, all the signs indicate a nascent industry. Currently, there are 36 utility-scale, grid connected PV projects across India under development with a combined capacity of 642MW.

Understand how exactly this growth will play out and how the cost trajectory of utility-scale plants will evolve as the industry matures.

This PV Insider India report brings clarity to the cost and performance of utility scale PV in 24 geographical locations across the lifespan of a plant and includes:

Comprehensive Site-Specific Performance Data
Levelized Energy Cost (LCOE) Data
CAPEX and OPEX Cost Breakdown
Project Development Considerations
