Solar technologies are undoubtedly one of the most effective solutions to reverse negative climatic changes. India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and has the largest population, which directly impacts the country’s carbon footprint. The Government of India has already taken up the world’s largest renewable energy program targeting 175 GW by 2022. The country’s seriousness towards the growth of renewable energy can be seen in its growth rate of 17.5% from 2014 to 2019 and higher in 2022.
