SEMI India offers course on off-grid solar PV components and systems

On April 11th, 2012, SEMI India (Bangalore, India), a unit of SEMI, announced that it has launched a solar photovoltaic (PV) work force development initiative with a three day short-term course on 揙ff-grid Solar PV Components and Systems at the India Habitat Center in New Delhi, India.

The short-term course will be the first in a series of courses that SEMI will organize in 2012 in technical collaboration with the National Centre for Photovoltaic Research and Education IIT Bombay (NCPRE) and offer in different centers across the country.


Training programs by leading academic and industry experts

SEMI India抯 workforce development initiative aims to address the needs of SEMI member companies and of the wider solar PV industry in India by offering high quality training programs delivered by leading academic and industry experts and expanding awareness about state of the art solar/PV technologies, applications and practices among engineers and technical personnel.

To fulfill a target of 20,000 megawatt (MW) of installed solar power capacity under the National Solar Mission (NSM), the Indian solar sector would need an estimated 3 lakh people by 2022 across all domains, profiles and levels. In India, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has estimated that there will be close to 100,000 jobs in PV by 2020. Industry sources suggest that if all job linkages are considered, PV jobs in India could far exceed this figure.

揑t is a great privilege for us to collaborate again with the prestigious National Centre for Photovoltaic Research and Education (NCPRE), established at IIT Bombay under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission of the Government of India, after the successful completion of our training programme in Jaipur. India is one of the prime markets in the global solar industry, boosted by the Central and State government incentives, as well as the global demand. There has been substantial increase in the demand for skilled and trained manpower for the solar sector, SEMI India President Debasish Paul Choudhury said.

揟echnological breakthroughs will make solar power competitive in the next five to six years and help India to add 67,000 megawatts of solar generation capacity by 2022 - more than thrice the country''s target. Solar companies have also been acquiring talent from top conventional power companies in the public and private sectors, Choudhury added. 揥e are also happy to announce that SOLARCON India 2012 - the premier solar focused technology and business event - will be held from September 3 to 5 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre.
