 75% of the Indian photovoltaic industry uses Chinese products and 15% are imported from the United States   

      At present, although India has replaced China as the fastest growing major economy in Asia and even in the world, its power supply shortage is extremely serious. In order to solve this problem, India intends to vigorously develop the renewable energy industry through policy measures such as industrial protection and trade protection, especially photovoltaic power generation. However, it is still difficult to get rid of dependence on China.

      According to India’s “Economic Times”, India currently has about 300 million people without electricity, mainly in rural areas. The power shortage caused by the electricity shortage in India is about 7% of its GDP. For this reason, the Indian government has always been committed to improving the power supply problem, but it has not been improved due to coal shortages, transmission losses, and electricity theft. After India’s current President Modi has achieved sufficient and stable power supply through solar-light generation in Gujarat, India urgently proposes to achieve renewable energy transformation, such as the recent cancellation of closure of large-scale coal-fired power projects exceeding 14Gw, as well as some mines. Will be filled by solar photovoltaic power generation. In terms of planning perspective, India plans to reach 100 million kW (100 Gw) of photovoltaic installed capacity by 2022, which is five times the target set by the previous government. In 2020, the renewable energy target will increase from 6% to 15%. However, at present, India does not have a complete photovoltaic industry chain. The imported crystalline silicon batteries are basically from China. Even the establishment of battery and component production lines requires China's help.

      According to the India Solar Map (2016 Edition) released by India's analysis agency Brge To India, of the top ten suppliers of photovoltaic modules in India in 2016, 8 of them were from China, of which about 75% were installed with photovoltaic products. 15% is imported from the United States, and the rest is provided by local manufacturers. Therefore, in order to promote the transformation of local PV companies that have long relied on imports, India has introduced some industrial protection policies. For example, at the end of July this year, India launched anti-dumping investigations on photovoltaic cells and components imported from China, Taiwan, and Malaysia. At present, China's photovoltaic industry occupies a leading position in the global industrial chain. India has to rely solely on protective policies to get rid of China’s dependence on the basic power shortage and the backward photovoltaic industry, and it is difficult to achieve energy transformation.
