Unleashing private investment in rooftop solar in India

Rooftop solar has significant potential to contribute to India’s renewable energy targets and energy security. The Government’s target of 40 GW of solar rooftop capacity by 2022 has injected increased ambition into the sector. The 40 GW target requires 86% growth each year which is faster than the growth in mobile phone connections during the 2000s. However there is significant scope for accelerating adoption of rooftop solar and this report sets out measures that could double progress towards the government’s target.
