93% voted that Indian companies should expand their solar business to the Middle East in recent webi

CSP Today's recent webinar on ‘Exporting Indian solar expertise abroad' revealed the key reasons for Indian solar companies to expand their business in the Middle East and the key challenges they may face

There are already very strong relations between India and countries in the Middle East such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, with over three million Indian citizens living and working in the region. CSP Today's recent webinar focused on the opportunities for Indian companies to further strengthen these ties and break into the solar markets in the Middle East.

During the webinar, Abdul Hanif Khan, head Of CSP Solar at India's largest solar EPC, Larsen and Toubro outlined some of the biggest challenges they are facing. L&T are already expanding their solar business in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia and Khan maintained that mobilizing the resources from India was difficult as it requires visa sponsorship amongst other things. He also revealed that following a bureaucratic system in some of the Middle Eastern countries is slowing down the progress of the solar industry.

Webinar participants voted in live industry polls and only 7% of participants voted that there are enough opportunities to remain in India, whilst the other 93% voted that they should be expanding their business to the Middle East.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
