According to Mercom Capital report,
far only completed its solar installed capacity target of 60%. India 's total
installed capacity of solar power 1,761 MW, 2013 So far in installation of
about 557MW. Given that most expected to put into operation in May 2013
concentrating solar thermal project will be delayed, the installed capacity is
expected in 2013 and 2012 were flat. India
This situation mainly lies in the Indian government's "trial" policy and "change every January provides that" creating uncertainty. Report notes that although
emerging solar panel price market, but in 2013 the installed capacity may disappoint the
market, because the current "satisfactory for all parties" policy
regime forgotten key stakeholders, namely the consumer. India
This report lists the current concentrator photovoltaic or solar thermal splitting as well as local production quota requirements as the government apparently contradictory example, calls to stop dividing and not allow the market to choose the most cost-effective technologies. According to India's National Solar Mission, as in May 2013, is expected to put into operation 470MW concentrating solar thermal only completed the commissioning of 50MW, will be allowed to defer the remaining ten months.
According to the Government's local production quota requirements (DCR) policy, the implementation of policies and in the most cost-effective purchase price of the original goals of solar panels for sale disjointed. In fact, there has been a lot of change in policy contradictions: "Select reverse bidding process, so solar energy may purchase the lowest reasonable price, but at present all our efforts to ensure that developers can not get lowest price for equipment."
"Government is keen to foreign investment in power generation projects, but at the same time, they command the way the project construction as well as their equipment manufacturing locations scare investors. Investment community makes it all very confusing." Earlier this month, the Indian government confirmed which will provide investors with options for with or without local production quotas required to tender to placate domestic component importers dissatisfaction.
