REW has an article on India's plans for solar power - India Approves Solar Implementation Plan.
The first part of a three-phase programme that could see 220 GW of new solar capacity installed in India has been approved, according to a statement from Gauri Singh, joint secretary to the government of India.
Following on from the country’s National Action Plan on Climate Change, the so-called Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) aims to see solar energy technologies in the country to achieve grid parity by 2022 as well as establish India as a global leader in solar energy.
Phase 1, now approved, will span the remaining period of the 11th Plan and first year of the 12th Plan, up to 2012-2013. Phase 2 will cover the remaining four years of the 12th Plan from 2013-2017 and the 13th Plan from 2017-2022 will be deemed as Phase 3.
Approving the targets, the government intends to foster 1000 MW of grid-connected (33 kV and above) solar plants, 100 MW of roof top and small solar plants connected to the low tension/11 kV grid and 200 MW of capacity equivalent from off-grid solar applications in the first phase of the Mission, till March, 2013.
