India can be a global solar power: ReportMay 18th, 2011 - 7:52 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 18 (IANS) India has enough land to become a major international player in the solar power sector, a report Wednesday said.
The report on “Concentrating Solar Power in India”, jointly commissioned by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and the Australian Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, has concluded that “India has sufficient land to allow solar power to make a major contribution to its energy mix,” an Australian High Commission press release said.
“India’s strong track record of technical success in every field that it has seriously engaged in, from wind turbines to car manufacturing, make it clear that a major player position in concentrating Solar Power is feasible,” the report stated.
The report was presented to Secretary (MNRE) Deepak Gupta May 13 by its principal author, Keith Lovegrove of the Australian National University.
