Moser Baer bets big on solar

“Our vision is to deliver clean power to the needy and over 250 mn people untouched by the benefit of power so far,” remarks K N Subramaniam, CEO, Moser Baer Solar
 Moser Baer Solar is one of the earlier entrants in solar power way back in 2007-08. As a manufacturer of solar PV cells and modules, the company continues to look at becoming a leader in India. In an interview with EPR, K N Subramaniam shares why India is capable of generating 15 per cent of renewable energy in energy mix.
Government initiativesThe first thing the Power Ministry and MNRE have done is to articulate with a clear vision for 100,000 MW of solar installations by 2022. For any business to succeed, one needs clear demand visibility and how the solar sector will span out.
Also the ministry has clearly outlined its vision for renewable energy and how they plan to increase its share in the energy mix of the country. PM Narendra Modi has outlined his commitment to achieve 24/7 power for all by the end of the decade. This gives immense measure of confidence and great deal of optimism on progress of both renewable and traditional power sectors.
Moser Baer and solarMoser Baer Solar is one of the earlier entrants with big focus on solar way back in 2007-08 and continues to look at becoming a leader in this sector in India as a manufacturer of solar PV cells and modules and EPC. Its vision is to deliver clean power to the needy and over 250 million people untouched by the benefit of power so far.
Technological advancementIt is important to have good cell efficiency and module wattage. Since technology for 240 W or 260 W is the same, Moser Baer feels this should not come in the way of solaristion of India. It is like having new models of cell phones being released regularly but without disturbing any major function or utility delivered to the customers.
Higher wattage is always welcome but that will not come in the way of progress. The industry needs to look for new breakthrough technologies which will substantially change the efficiency of solar cells.
Moser Baer & ‘Make in India’Reiterating its commitment to ‘Make in India’ campaign, Moser Baer Solar manufacturing arm recently commenced operations of its upgraded solar cell manufacturing line. This upgraded cell line operations will allow Moser Baer to participate and supply to DCR projects.
The solar manufacturing unit of Moser Baer has been recognised with various certifications including 5-Star Rating TUV Rheinland, JET & JIS (Japan), MCS (UK), CEC (Australia), ITCOL (Bangladesh) and DGS&D (India) for processes adopted in manufacturing of PV modules.
