Study of Energy Consumption Rooftop Solar PV System in India

Authors(2) :-Sonam Dubey, Pushpendra Kushwaha

Indian power sector is facing unprecedented challenges with the growing economy; a rapid increase in electricity demand on one hand and supply constraints and increasing costs of major fuels, such as coal and natural gas used for power production coupled with growing concerns about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions from the use of fossil fuels on other. Providing energy security and energy independence to billion plus population is also on the government agenda. It has been established that to meet power demand, India needs to have a basket of energy resources. Solar energy that is abundantly available across the country could be a logical choice. Solar photovoltaic technology, which has inherent advantages of being modular and solid state, is one of the best technological options for distributed generation close to the point of consumption. Hence, roof mounted solar PV systems can play an important role in augmenting the power generation capacity.
