PV innovations are propelling our desire for sustainable energy
.

Discussing the key driving factors of India’s solar PV growth, Sumit Mehta, Co-founder & Director of PIXON, highlights how innovations in solar technology bolster India’s renewable sector, driven by policy alignment, self-sufficiency, and quality modules.

Which key factors drive India’s solar PV market growth, aligned with the government’s renewable policies? 

PIXON contributes to this trend. The Indian solar PV market’s growth is driven by factors closely aligned with government renewable energy policies. PIXON is a part of this trend. The Indian government’s initiatives, including the national solar mission and state policies, provide financial incentives for solar energy adoption, fostering market expansion. Reduced solar PV prices due to technology improvements and PIXON’s dedication to high-quality modules enhance solar’s competitiveness.

India’s desire for domestic energy production due to fossil fuel reliance and energy security fuels the solar PV market. Even our job creation aligns with economic growth goals, and solar’s suitability for rural electrification addresses energy access challenges. International commitments like the Paris Agreement align with India’s renewable targets. PIXON supports market growth by supplying quality modules, aiding India’s sustainable energy transition and innovation efforts.

What’s the current status of India’s solar PV supply chain? How dependent is the industry on imported raw materials like silicon wafers and components?

The solar PV supply chain in India is evolving positively. The industry witnesses growth in domestic manufacturing capabilities, boosted by government initiatives and increasing demand. While efforts to reduce dependence on imported raw materials like silicon wafers and other components are underway, a significant portion is still imported. PIXON actively enhances domestic sourcing for greater self-sufficiency, supporting Indian solar sector growth.

How do government policies impact India’s solar PV and solar cell manufacturing?

Government policies and incentives are pivotal in shaping India’s solar PV and solar cell manufacturing. Measures like subsidies, tax benefits, and renewable energy targets boost demand and investments. This leads to increased production capacity, technological advancements, and job creation. Policy stability and global competition challenges persist, requiring ongoing industry-government collaboration for sustainable growth.

Do manufacturers face regulatory challenges or bottlenecks like permitting or trade barriers?

Solar module manufacturers, including us, face regulatory challenges and operational bottlenecks. These include complex permitting processes, global trade barriers affecting raw material supply, and import/export regulations impacting market competitiveness. Adhering to evolving quality, safety, environmental standards, and fluctuating subsidy policies creates uncertainties. Labour, intellectual property, and waste management regulations also affect manufacturing. Our approach involves proactive regulatory compliance, strong stakeholder relationships, industry engagement, and adaptive strategies for quality solar modules and a sustainable energy future.

What innovations have you added or plan to add to solar PV technology?

We expanded our manufacturing line to 1 GW, projecting further supply chain development in India. Our Multi-Busbar and Topcon production lines enhance quality demands. The future of renewable energy, particularly solar, is set to double capacity. PIXON contributes to efficient solar energy solutions. Our infrastructure supports both Multibusbar and Topcon technologies.

How are Indian manufacturers adopting innovations for efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability?

Research and collaboration enhance energy generation and reduce resource usage. Automation ensures quality while reducing costs, and our solar-powered facilities demonstrate commitment. At PIXON, we prioritise innovation for efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and sustainability. Our 1 GW European manufacturing processes use technology to maximise solar module performance. We engage with suppliers for a sustainable supply chain, empower employees with training, and maintain certifications for quality and sustainability. Educating customers and pursuing improvement drive progress in India’s renewable energy landscape.
