SOLARCON India 2013 to Bring Together India's PV Ecosystem on Eve of JNNSM-Phase II Announcements

Bangalore, India | Posted on July 28th, 2013

SEMI, the global industry association serving the manufacturing supply chain for the micro- an d nano-electronics industries, is hosting its fifth SOLARCON India, a premier solar-focused technology and business event, from 1-3 August 2013 at the KTPO Exhibition Complex, Bangalore. The inaugural ceremony is scheduled at 9:30 AM on 1 August, 2013 at the venue. The event showcases the entire solar photovoltaic (PV) supply chain with a focus on manufacturing and technology. Inaugural keynotes will be delivered by Dr. Harish Hande, Managing Director, SELCO India and winner of the Ramon Magsaysay Award and Prof. Pradeep Haldar, professor at the State University of New York (College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering) and CTO of the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium. An inaugural day session on "JNNSM Phase - 2 (2013-2017) Policy Initiatives and Implementation" will see Shri Tarun Kapoor, IAS, Joint Secretary, MNRE and Dr. Ashvini
Kumar, Director, Solar Energy Corporation of India address the conference.

The 3-day conference is themed "Balancing Energy Supply & Demand in the Region" suggesting the need for India's significant PV deployment growth to be matched by a strong manufacturing eco-system. Over 60 industry experts and leaders from across the country will also address the conference over the three days, including: Prof. Dr. Roland Schindler, executive director of the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems; Prof. Richard Corkish, head of the school of PV and renewable energy engineering at the University of New South Wales, Australia; Dr. Bill Tumas, from the Materials and Chemical Sciences Directorate of the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). SOLARCON India 2013 is supported by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA), Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Ltd. (KREDL), and the Government of Karnataka.

"Our conference theme this year reflects SEMI's view that PV manufacturing must complement the growth in solar PV adoption in India," adds Bettina Weiss, President, SEMI India. "Balancing PV supply and demand within regions provides greater economic benefits, reduces carbon emissions and the costs of transporting PV products, making a case for a strong regional manufacturing industry. In the last few years, a large chunk of solar PV installations in India have been based on components sourced from international suppliers and at different cost points. India must not become solely a consumer of solar technology as it has much to offer the world as a manufacturer."
"I am delighted to be at SEMI's conference in India this year, and to discuss the importance of supply chain collaboration, common standards and technology roadmaps, and collaborative technology development and deployment programs as key elements in overcoming technology, manufacturing and deployment challenges, in achieving lower costs and spurring the transition to a low-carbon, renewable energy world economy," says Prof. Pradeep Haldar at State University of New York (College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering) and CTO, U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium.

"Breathtaking innovations in photovoltaic modules, new materials, components, and systems integration are transforming the use and adoption of solar PV globally. India, with its solar advantage and immense energy needs will be an engine of PV market growth and can be a true beneficiary of the kind of applied research we conduct at Fraunhofer CSE. I am pleased to be presenting this perspective at SOLARCON India", adds Prof. Dr. Roland Schindler, Executive Director of the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems.

The conference will also include presentations and discussions covering:
• Phase-2 of the JNNSM - Policy & Implementation aspects
• Opportunities for independent power producers under the REC mechanism
• Balancing PV supply and demand in India: Re-invigorating Indian Manufacturing
• Assessing the Indian Solar Market: Development Prospects and Problems — the Big Picture
• Perspectives on building a complete solar PV eco-system in India
• Plus discussions on state solar policies, sessions on Financing perspectives, Rooftop PV, Structures, safety, reliability of PV installations and Energy storage, conversion and efficiency.

A unique workshop on "PV Standards — from Materials and Manufacturing to Systems" in association with the IEEE Standards Association and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), will be offered, as well as a one-day tutorial on "Solar PV System Sizing" in technical collaboration with the National Center for PV Research and Education at IIT Bombay.
