Solar Power in Karnataka
Charting the path for a bright future
India has set itself on a path of accelerated development of renewable energy to power economic growth through clean energy sources as well as to mitigate some of the critical challenges country’s carbon intensive energy market is facing. With the recent decision by Government of India to scale up the installed solar power capacity to 100 GW by 2022, solar energy has taken the center stage in the Indian power sector. However, the solar sector is still in the evolving phase and faces a number of challenges which need to be overcome.
