Thin Film, CPV and Crystalline Silicon potential in India to be discussed in August

Experts speaking at the PV Manufacturing Summit India (1-2 August, Delhi) will debate the progress and development of each photovoltaic niche as Indian manufacturers prepare to scale up.

Of the three technologies, Crystalline Silicon (C-Si) is undoubtedly the most established. In line with Government policy Indian project developers wanting to use C-Si modules must buy from local suppliers. Although embryonic in nature, the manufacturing industry for C-Si has been developing slowly.


Conversely, recent research has shown that thin film has been selected for 55% of Indian projects. However, a local manufacturing base for the technology has not yet been established and manufacturers have struggled to compete on price. CPV is still in its infancy and has not yet been proven in India, despite its obvious promise.

With all of these critical topics to be answered, experts from First Solar, SCHOTT Solar, Solar Semiconductor, HHV Solar, Chroma Energy and Moser Baer will be meeting at the PV Manufacturing Summit India (1-2 August, Delhi).

With the conference a month away, attendees will discuss the prospects for each technology, and answer if a manufacturing hub can emerge for any or all of the three PV technology strands.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
