It will also constitute a major contribution by India to the global effort to meet the challenge of Climate Change. Based on this vision the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission was launched on 30th June 2008. under the brand name “Solar India”. Towards Building Solar India . Solar energy. therefore.

Importance and relevance of solar energy for India  Cost  Currently High  JNNSM aims at driving down costs by rapid scale-up of capacity & technological innovations.National Solar Mission 2. Scalability  Vast solar Potential  5000 trillion kWh /year energy incident over India’s Land area with most parts receiving 4-7 kWh/m2 /day. Environmental Impact  Environment Friendly as it has zero emission while generating energy. June 2008. Security of Source  Most secure source since it is abundantly available.

National Solar Mission 3. Towards Building Solar India . Immediate Aim of the mission is to focus on setting up an enabling environment for solar technology both at centralized and decentralized level. Mission anticipates achieving grid parity by 2022 and parity with coal based thermal power by 2030. Mission Aims & Objectives Driving down cost of solar energy by rapid scale-up of capacity. Source: JNNSM. June 2008. by creating the policy conditions for its diffusion across the country as quickly as possible. manufacturing & technological innovations. To establish India as a global leader in solar energy.

Government and Civil Society to guide the overall technology development strategy. technical experts and representatives from academic and research institutions. Towards Building Solar India . research groups and high-tech start up companies. A National Centre of Excellence (NCE) shall be established to implement the technology development plan formulated by the Research Council and serve as its Secretariat. which will focus on improving efficiency in existing applications and reducing space-intensity. The NCE will serve as the funding agency to support solar R&D programmes. The Council will review and update the technology roadmap to achieve more rapid technological innovation and cost reduction. validate research outcomes and serve as an apex centre for testing and certification and for developing standards and specifications for the Solar industry. June 2008. Research & Development This Mission will launch a major R&D programme in Solar Energy.National Solar Mission 6. It Will also be the main interface with international research institutions. It will coordinate the work of various R&D centres.

Human Resource Development (HRD) It is envisaged that the end of mission period.  A Government Fellowship programme (at postgraduate & research levels) to train 100 selected engineers and scientists in solar energy in world class institutions abroad will be taken up.National Solar Mission 7.000 trained and specialized personnel across the skill spectrum. solar industry will employ at least 100. with financial assistance from Government. Setting up of a National Centre for photovoltaic Research & Education at IIT.
