The Indian government wants to significantly develop solar technology, and Intersolar India 2011 provides an ideal platform for this.

India wishes to install a total PV capacity of 20 gigawatts and 20 million square meters of collector area by 2022. These targets form part of India’s National Solar Mission. Industry experts are therefore expecting large growth in photovoltaics and solar thermal technology. By significantly developing solar technology, India hopes to gain an improved and more secure energy supply.


From December 14–16, 2011, representatives from industry and science will meet at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (BEC) in Mumbai to discuss India’s solar market. The exhibition will provide information on technological prospects in this market, while the accompanying conference will uncover the challenges ahead.

Intersolar India has become a great success. With 143 exhi bi tors, Intersolar India featured twice the number of companies in 2010 than in the previous year. Visitor numbers increased by 83 % to 5,863 and the event attracted experts from more than 55 different countries. The conference program at the Hotel Leela Kempinski in Mumbai was equally impressive. Here, 70 presentations furnished 700 participants with information on sales developments, industry trends and technological research in both the Indian and global solar markets.
