Cheaper finance to help boost solar sector, says report

Liberalised external commercial borrowing norms and making cheaper funds available, among other measures, will help in boosting the country's solar energy sector, says a report. Besides, having increased solar general capacity would help in bringing down the dependence on power from coal plants, according to the report prepared by Hindustan Power.. Read More

The startup providing solar lighting to India's poorest communities

Largely unchanged for centuries, village life in India is slowly modernising. Motorbikes and vans now appear beside bicycles and bullock carts. Yet basic services remain just that: basic. With more than 32,000 villages continue to lack power, the absence of electrification represents a particular concern. Even those villages that have grid access,.. Read More

Players from Gulf nations plan to invest in Indian solar sector

Solar manufacturing sector in India is all set to get a boost players from Gulf countries are contemplating to invest in the country both in terms of finance and technology. They plan to form joint ventures with Indian manufacturers based on their engineering capabilities. The seeds of this collaboration were sown during a recent meeting of member.. Read More

Better solar cells, better LED light and vast optical possibilities

Changes at the atom level in nanowires offer vast possibilities for improvement of solar cells and LED light. NTNU-researchers have discovered that by tuning a small strain on single nanowires they can become more effective in LEDs and solar cells. NTNU researchers Dheeraj Dasa and Helge Weman have, in cooperation with IBM, discovered that gallium.. Read More
