Tata Power Solar emerges as leaders in solar rooftop market

 Tata Power Solar, India’s one of the largest integrated solar players, emerged as a leader in the industrial and commercial rooftop segment, in the recently released India Solar Rooftop Map 2015 by Bridge To India, one of the leading cleantech consulting firms. Tata Power Solar also ranked No 2 under the residential rooftop space, in the Solar Rooftop Map 2015.
Commenting on the map, Dr Tobias Engelmeier, Founder and Director, Bridge To India, said, “We are extremely happy to present the first-ever solar rooftop map in the region. The potential and benefits of the solar rooftop segment in India are huge and the market is just getting started. In-line with our earlier findings, we see that Tata Power Solar is building a very strong position in the EPC market.” As per industry reports, the realisable potential in India for solar generated from residential rooftops will be 35 GW by 2024; correspondingly for industrial and commercial rooftops, the realisable potential in the next 10 years is up to 41 GW.  These projections clearly indicate the growing importance and opportunity that the solar rooftop segment presents in the Indian context.
Commenting on the findings, Dr Arul Shanmugasundram, EVP Projects and CTO, Tata Power Solar, said, “Solar rooftops have the potential to revolutionise India’s solar scene. Over the last few years, we have aggressively focused on this space, having installed more than 40 MW of rooftop and distributed generation projects. It is great to see an industry wide effort in recognising and mapping this space, and we are pleased to be acknowledged for our efforts.”
