2021 is expected to be a stellar year for solar. The industry’s hopes are pinned on the next two years to make up for the lost year that was 2020.
Mercom is forecasting 2021 to be the best year for solar in India to date. Per Mercom Research, about 48 GW of solar projects are in the pre and under-construction stage. In this huge market, which module technology is going to capture a majority of market share? What are developers and EPC service providers thinking? Which technology is winning the LCOE plus advanced technology game? Who are the major suppliers, and what are their strategies?
Find the answers to these critical questions in our webinar.

The solar industry is seeing a surge in new technologies. Along with technological advancements in modules, there is significant innovation happening in solar inverters.
Project developers and EPC companies have been trying to find the right solution considering the cost, size, and maintenance of the projects. Central vs string inverters – the choice that stakeholders are trying to make.
In this webinar, the experts talked about what makes the case for these two types of inverters. The new trends, efficiency levels, and innovations, and the outlook going forward.

The solar industry is rapidly shifting toward new solar panel technologies, including larger PV modules with power ratings of more than 500Wp, half-cut technology, larger wafer sizes, and gallium-doping.
These new technologies promise higher efficiency, better performance in varied temperatures, and reduced impact from shading, resulting in lower levelized cost of electricity and higher returns for solar projects.
Our webinar explored these new technologies and how utility-scale developers could reduce project costs – significantly.
