The second wave of the pandemic has been negatively impacting the cost of large-scale solar project development and management. There is also a surge in component prices, adding to the challenges.
India has a cumulative installed solar capacity of 41 GW, and a large-scale solar project pipeline of 53.6 GW, with another 24.1 GW tendered and pending auctions at the end of Q1 2021, according to Mercom India Research’s latest Q1 2021 India Solar Market Update.
Effectively developing and managing this large portfolio of projects balancing cost and quality during challenging times demand innovative solutions. But new-age technological advancements have been coming to the aid of developers to effectively build, operate, and maintain assets.
On Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 03:00 PM IST, Mercom will host a webinar on ‘Redefining Global PV Project Standards – Huawei FusionSolar 8.0 Gemini.’
