Investments of over $100bn have been announced for Indian renewable energy since 2015 by companies and lenders from east Asia, Europe and India itself. India is executing one of the most radical energy sector transformations ever undertaken, and 2016 has shown that the flow of finance is matching the ambition. We expect solar projects to reach nearly 45GW by 2024. This massive growth in India’s solar sector represents a major opportunity for UK-based investors and project developers. The main advantage the UK companies will have over domestic companies is their ability to access capital.
