Solar EPC - Mitigating Challenges and Improving Project Quality

Friday, August 13, 2021, 03:00 pm IST

The role of solar EPC service providers has never been more challenging or indispensable at the same time. EPC companies with a strong track record and proficiency are essential not just to meet deadlines and optimize project performance but also to manage supply chain challenges, especially when there is significant price pressure resulting from low tariffs. Gone are the days of fly-by-night operators as COVID-affected markets demand service providers that have the skills to deliver under tough conditions and wafer-thin margins.

The Indian solar market is an attractive destination for investors. One of the top solar markets in the world, the country has a robust large-scale solar project pipeline of 53.6 GW, with another 24.1 GW tendered and pending auction. Quality solar assets are equally important for the government, developers, investors, and acquirers.

The panel discussed these and other key issues:

  • Setting up quality solar assets under pressure from developers bidding at aggressive tariffs and the rising price of components
  • Bringing in innovative construction methods in a market where the EPC margins are wafer-thin
  • Managing supply chain issues and logistics in a COVID-hit environment

Listen to the experts as they share their experiences, lessons, and innovative solutions for best practices and optimizing solar project performance.
