India's Financial Times (EconomicTimes) reported the development of India in 2009, the national solar energy program (SolarMission) before the completion of the tender, selected 37 local enterprises, will help India in 2022 from a 0 ~ 20GWp goal of the national solar power.
According to national solar plan, India is expected to reach 2013 goal of 1,300 MWp installed in 2017 and then add 10GWp, the rest completed in 2022. Total investment of 700 billion dollars.
NTPC, India's largest power company will be Rs 15.31 per kWh (about $ 0.34) and the price of Rs 17.91 per kWh, solar thermal energy to the developers and the acquisition of solar energy generation, the effect of long-term contracts up to 1GWp power, the acquisition the price is about 8 times the cost of thermal power generation. 1GWp power for nearly 100 million households to use.
But Bloomberg (Bloomberg) reported that the tender, the lowest price per kilowatt-hour solar Rs 10.95, the lowest price for the solar thermal Rs 10.49 per kWh. Equal to the discount rate than the government plan out 30%. Bloomberg New Energy Finance (NewEnergyFinance) analyst BharatBhushan that the lowest bid price is too low, the power plant to build sufficient profitability very difficult.
According to NTPC notice on the site, LancoInfratech, KVKEnergyVentures and RajasthanSunTechniqueEnergy all made 100MW solar project; six smaller companies, MahindraSolarOne, AzurePower, SunEdisonEnergyIndia, WelspunSolarAP, PunjLloydInfrastructure and Indian oil companies, all made 50MW of solar projects.
However, apart from professional solar energy company involved in the tender along with construction companies, wool manufacturers, animation companies, pump manufacturers. India's new Department of Energy (NewandRenewableEnergyministry) Secretary DeepakGupta said that this tender in order to prevent irresponsible bidding, manufacturers must pay the bid bond.
India's national solar program will be provided for hospitals, hotels, government buildings and other public facilities, and encourage economic capacity in remote areas with low use. Once the plan implemented, the Indian National 1 / 8 of the power will come from solar energy.
The full opening of the tender Indian companies, but most of the lack of deep experience in the development of solar energy program. The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported that the Indian government funded grants for these local companies, but the ban on imports of certain solar energy equipment from abroad, led to a U.S. official and a specific industry protest.
Government of India is that it would not lift the ban, but the foreign and Indian companies can set up joint ventures in order to enter the Indian solar market. It is reported that, since India relies heavily on imported raw materials such as silicon element, so the United States FirstSolar, mainland China's Suntech (SuntechPower) and Taiwan Motech (MotechIndustries) are expected to share the pie.
