The project ‘ComSolar’ was initiated and financed by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) under its International Climate Initiative (IKI) to support the Indian government in achieving its ambitious targets under the Jawaharlal Nehru National solar mission.
ComSolar supports commercialization of solar energy in the urban and industrial areas. The project was formed as a part of the Indo-German Energy Programme (IGEN) where other projects exist focussing on wide energy topics, such as energy access in rural areas, energy efficiency in power thermal plants, use of tri-generation technologies, improving renewable energy supply models, rural electrification etc.
Further information about the project and its stakeholders can be accessed from the following links:
ComSolar is piloting innovative solar technologies and business models in order to test and assess the technical and economic feasibility of these energy solutions and then developing strategies for replication and dissemination. (more)
ComSolar is supporting MNRE and state nodal agencies in exploring various feasible and replicable mechanisms for the deployment of grid connected rooftop solar photovoltaic facilities and to design suitable implementation framework. (more)
ComSolar supports its partners and other stakeholders such as the developers and financing entities with successful capacity building measures and tools (e.g. Solar Guidelines). (more)
