Nathan, Hippu Salk Kristle and Singh, Manmeet (2016) Undimmed: Nurturing Indian solar-power technology within the strictures of the WTO. The Caravan.Full text not available from this repository.
In January 2010, the Indian government launched the National Solar Mission, or NSM, a phased plan to promote solar power aimed at achieving a generation capacity of 20 gigawatts of solar electricity by 2022. Last year, it revised that number upwards, to 100 gigawatts, while keeping the deadline the same—meaning that solar power now accounts for more than half of the 175 gigawatts of generation capacity from renewable resources that the government plans to create by that year. Even though solar power forms less than 2 percent of India’s total generation capacity at present, the revision signalled a growing confidence in the country’s solar-power sector on the back of promising early results. In its first phase, the NSM aimed to create a generation capacity of 1.1 gigawatts by 2013; in March 2013, that capacity was already 1.7 gigawatts. Since then, the figure has trebled in less than three years, and this February it stood at 5.5 gigawatts. By march 2017, it is projected to grow to 20 gigawatts.
