The book ‘Facing the Sun’, published by the Centre for Science and Environment, provides a thorough research on how grid-connected solar power projects can be implemented in India successfully.

Price: Rs 495

Grid-connected solar power is a new and rapidly growing sector in India – from almost nil grid- connected solar power in 2009, the country will have 2.5 gigawatts (GW) by 2014, if all goes as per plan. It has already installed about 1.0 GW and the Union Government plans to install 20 GW by 2022.

But there is hardly any independent research on how grid-connected projects are being implemented. It was precisely for this reason that CSE decided to do a thorough research to understand what is working, and what is not, in grid-connected solar power.

The book also contains a chapter on India's solar programmes such as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. Launched on January 11, 2010, the mission aims at achieving 22 gigawatts (GW) of installed solar capacity by 2022 – 20 GW grid-connected and 2 GW small off-grid applications. The JNNSM also aimed at creating a
strong solar technology manufacturing base in India.
