On the biodiesel front, the session elaborated on R&D work on high oil yielding Jatropha seeds that is underway and pilot projects for plantations and trans-esterification. It was felt that the industry is in the incubation stage but large scale jatropha cultivation and the infrastructure for oil seed collection and oil extraction must be established before the industry can be placed on a rapid growth track. The global market drivers, the out look for biofuel industry, the key drivers – blend rates was discussed.

Additionally, in order to ensure that a vibrant secondary market develops for wind power projects in India, the capital gains tax complication associated with the sale of wind power projects from existing companies should be addressed. Basically, the accelerated tax depreciation is a form of subsidy that is being paid to make wind power projects financial viable. It is just a policy differentiation that unlike other countries in the world that pay generation linked subsidy, India chose to give subsidy mostly in the form of accelerated depreciation. But nonetheless both forms of subsidy have the same end objective namely to promote wind power projects by making them financially viable. In the case of a generation linked subsidy scheme, a sale of wind power project by one entity year alone is generally around 30 times over-hang of accelerated tax depreciation to another would not result in very high this limit of 49 MW. For Independent needs to be offset by strengthening the capital gains liability because the asset Power Producer (IPPs) setting up GBI scheme. Assuming an average PLF being sold would not have an extraordinarily greenfield assets, this implies that the of 25%, the existing GBI cap will lead to a depreciated value. Hence, simply because IRRs could be quite low, since accelerated subsidy of just around INR 54 Million per the form of subsidy has now changed from depreciation benefits are not really annum by the government. For a country generation linked subsidy to a subsidy in useful and GBI scheme is not adequate. with the second largest population in the the form of accelerated depreciation, the world, the above subsidy amount of INR capital gains complexity should not arise.• The wind power industry in India has 54 Million per annum would translate into developed uniquely. The entire wind Outlook a per capita subsidy of approximately 5 power growth in India has hinged on the paise per person per annum. Further, since 80% accelerated tax depreciation that Among all the non-conventional energy the GBI can be claimed only by giving up is provided by the government.

  11. 11. SCHOTT Solar is the oldest still active solar manufacturer in the world. Exhibitions India spoke to Amit Barve, General Manager for Solar Business of SCHOTT in India, and Alden Lee, Sales Director Asia & Pacific, about SCHOTT Solar´s activities in India. 1. How important is the Indian market for SCHOTT Solar? Lee: India is one of our focus markets in Asia. We are actively involved in the market for more than 10 years now. The need for energy is growing here so fast that India has to utilize renewable energy in order to meet the ever growing demand. Therefore India plays a Amit Barve significant role in our global growth strategy. Alden Lee 2. What can a German company offer to Indian customers? Barve: Most important criteria for Large scale Solar power plants is the energy yield over a period of 15-20 years and not the nominal installed capacity. We have Solar modules in the field for more than 25 years and they still performing extremely well. We can provide Solar Modules with highest international standard to Indian companies who are looking forward to durable and reliable products. 3. Which product is most suitable for the Indian market? Lee: In regions with hot climatic conditions modules with amorphous silicon technology, as the SCHOTT ASI TM, is the best choice. Phoenix Solar, a large scale System Integrator and Installer has made a test in Germany: During the summer ASI has outperformed crystalline panels by far, while crystalline panels performed better in winter time. If the summer is even hotter and longer than in Germany, then ASI produces much more energy than crystalline panels. In Malaysia we have test plants and ASI is producing 15-20 % more kWh than the crystalline panels! 4. What is the price difference between ASI and crystalline panels in India? Barve: Since ASI needs much less silicon, we can sell our ASI modules around 20 % cheaper in India than crystalline modules. With the added benefit of extra yield and less cost customers can enjoy double benefit of more kWh for less money! 5. Where do you produce these modules? Lee: We produce all of our ASI modules in Germany. The production is fully automated to ensure consistent high quality of our product.
