With this mandate it is hoped there will be a significant increase in the number of green jobs in the state. Solar power in India is a fast-growing industry. The country’s solar installed capacity reached 37.627 GW as of 31 Mar 20. India has the lowest capital cost per MW globally to install solar power plants. With this, solar energy has become available, accessible and affordable to all.
Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL) has issued an Expression of Interest (EoI) inviting global companies to partner and leverage its facilities and capabilities for setting up a manufacturing base in the country.
The scope of work includes manufacturing and technology partnerships with global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who are seeking an opportunity to establish or expand their supply chains or manufacturing base in India. These include the manufacture of various goods, including heavy electrical equipment, process project equipment, and solar value chain.
Some of the possible areas of partnership could be on heavy electrical equipment, project, and transportation equipment, silicon to module solar value chain, and setting up of up to 5 MW capacity of Li-Ion cell manufacturing facility for all types of electric vehicles and energy storage.
