Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission - Towards Building SOLAR INDIA

South Asia
Clean Technology
Renewable Energy


This is a governmental initiative to promote a shift from non-renewable sources of energy to renewable sources of energy. The initiative notes that Indian’s solar industry depends heavily on imported materials, and so sets up incentive packages to promote PV and thermal system manufacturing plants. In addition, the initiative points out the importance of small and medium enterprises in shifting manufacturing of these components to India, and calls for supporting SMEs through “soft loans for expansion of facilities, technology upgradation and working capital” (D. Manufacturing capabilities: innovate, expand and disseminate). Likewise, the paper calls for providing support to local start-ups and SME in “through mentoring, networking and financial support” (7. Research and Development).
