Thanks to the growth of population and industrialization, there is a growing need for energy supply in India. The total installed energy capacity in the country adds up to 160 GW, 65% of which derives from thermal sources, 25% from water sources and 10% from renewable sources. By 2050, 69% of India’s electricity will be produced by renewable energy; “new” energy sources – particularly wind and solar – will contribute to almost 40% of this.

has recently launched the “Solar Mission”, with the objective of producing 20,000 MW of solar energy by 2022, starting with an investment of almost € 1 billion in 2010-2011. Additionally, the potential of the sector has been recognized by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), which increased its budget by 61%, bringing it to € 168 million per year.

Why should you do business in the energy sector in India?

  • India is one of the most ideal investment destinations for producers of renewable energy equipment: the Government of India allows 100% foreign direct investment (FDI), giving the possibility to Italian companies to hold 100% ownership of renewable energy companies;
  • India’s electricity demand is growing 8% annually, as a result of an increase in population and consumption;
  • The target set by the MNRE for wind energy is 10,500 MW by 2012
