During this years Intersolar at Mumbai, there was lot of interest towards off-grid solar PV. This was visible both at the Conference and at the Exhibition. At the exhibition, the booths of several off-grid product suppliers(for solar home inverters, home packs, etc) were quite crowded. There were signs that individuals were keen on learning more about Solar PV systems so that they can install one at their home. Even at the conference, there were lot of delegates who sat through most of the presentations on off-grid systems.
I had the opportunity to share my thoughts on the off-grid rooftop PV systems. Other panel members included luminaries like Mr. Shirish Garud, TERI, Mr. Andreas Thermann, KfW, Mr. Arun Nagpal, Minda NexGenTech Ltd. and Mr. Bhupesh Trivedi, CEO, REECODE Energy Solutions. The presentation on the off-grid rooftop PV systems can be found below. Please feel free to share your feedback.
