Development of local supply chain: the missing link for concentrated solar power projects in India

The specific objective of the study is to assess the potential of India’s industries to set up a manufacturing base for production of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) technology components and equipment. The study assesses competitive positioning and potential of Indian companies in the manufacturing of key CSP components. It proposes an action plan to help develop this potential and evaluate the resulting economic benefits. This report includes the following activities: Assessment of the competitive position of industries in India to support the development of CSP technologies; Evaluation of short-, medium-, and long-term economic benefits of the creation of a local manufacturing base; Action plan to stimulate local manufacturing of CSP technology components and equipment.
