Steven Xuereb, Head of the PV Systems Business Unit at PI Berlin, who will manage the newly created company said, “India is a young solar market experiencing dynamic growth. We see great potential here for the provision of services and consultation relating to the planning, construction and operation of solar power plants.”

India has announced its goal of scaling up its solar power capacity to 100 GW by 2022. “This long-term goal gives the players in the market the security they need to make investments,” says Kumar.

Steven Xuereb said, “Our lab in Suzhou allows us to provide quality inspections for the Indian market directly in the country of manufacture, so it’s a fast and straightforward process.”

Government of India also plans to enhance module quality by introducing its own standard for modules which can be sold in India. “We will be able to help businesses inspect and implement large projects here too”, says Xuereb.
