Panasonic has been declared winner in the category of ‘rooftop solar module’ company in recognition of its continuing efforts and outstanding contribution towards the development of rooftop solar industry.

As green grips the wider sensibilities of the world with India not being an exception, solar energy turns further relevant. Concerted efforts are being made for producing cost effective yet high quality solar panels and related paraphernalia by a host of companies. Japan’s Panasonic is one of such firms which have got strong operational wing for addressing the market of solar energy solutions.
And if we talk of India, Panasonic has been very active in catering to the  solar energy based power generation market in the country.
however, quite recently, the company has been declared a winner in the category of ‘rooftop solar module’ category in recognition of its continuing efforts and outstanding contribution towards the development of rooftop solar industry here in India.
The Chairman of SECI (solar energy corporation of India) Upendra Tripathi and CMD of IREDA (Indian renewable energy development agency) K.S. Popli—both central govt subsidiary companies of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE)— conferred the awards at the IRSS Indian Rooftop Solar Summit organised by the First View Group & Solar Quarter in New Delhi.
“India is facing a major challenge as it evolves to be a self-sufficient and efficient nation using non-conventional sources for producing power. The Union Government has significantly expanded its solar plans, targeting US$100 billion of investment and 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022”, said Krishnan Rajagopalan, Head Solar Business for Panasonic in India. “The need of the hour is to deploy high efficiency modules that offer better response to environmental conditions in the roof top segment (particularly commercial and industrial units). Customers are now opting to pay the extra premium, to have secured and long term cash flows”, added Rajagopalan.
Having over four decades of experience in solar panels business, Panasonic started its India solar business operations through its 100 percent wholly owned subsidiary company Anchor Electricals Private Ltd., as a supplier of high efficiency photovoltaic module HIT in April 2014. The company today offers end-to-end solution to its customers right from feasibility study to high quality Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) services and long-term operation and maintenance.
Shigeki Komatsu, General Manager of solar business unit, Japan, said, “ mentions, “Panasonic will be releasing larger capacity photovoltaic module HIT (294Wp, 325Wp and 330 Wp) for B2B market shortly. These modules will reduce the balance of system costs for clients and make it more compact and also provide higher power density.”
