With foreign solar companies keen to enter the Indian market despite strict photovoltaic cell and module local content requirements, consultancy Bridge to India has arranged for prominent Japanese companies to meet with domestic photovoltaic developers.

Sharp is part of a delegation of Japanese solar firms who will be visiting New Delhi.

The likes of Sharp, Kyocera, Toshiba and Kawasaki Heavy Machinery will be in New Delhi on February 19 to meet representatives of Indian firms from every stage of the solar supply chain.

Japanese companies specializing in the manufacture of modules, inverters, tracking systems, module fabs, and photovoltaic materials and components will visit along with providers of power electrics, measuring and testing equipment, EPC and steel companies. Fully integrated solar provider Sumitomo Corporation will also be on hand to meet domestic solar scheme developers.

Despite a government austerity drive, the Indian solar market is blossoming thanks to a combination of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission and separate state solar policies, and Bridge To India says foreign companies will be seeking a slice of the action.
