  • 1. NATIONAL SOLAR MISSION The objective of the National Solar Mission is to establish India as a global leader in solar energy, by creating favourable policy conditions for its diffusion across the country as quickly as possible. The various mission targets are listed below.  To create an enabling policy framework for the deployment of 20,000 MW of solar power by 2022.  To ramp up capacity of grid-connected solar power generation to 1000 MW within three years – by 2013; an additional 3000 MW by 2017 through the mandatory use of the renewable purchase obligation (RPO) by utilities backed with a preferential tariff. This capacity can be more than doubled – reaching 10,000 MW installed power by 2017 or more, based on the enhanced and enabled international finance and technology transfer. The ambitious target for 2022 of 20,000 MW or more, will be dependent on the ‘learning’ of the first two phases, which if successful, could lead to conditions of grid-competitive solar power. The transition could be appropriately up scaled, based on availability of international finance and technology.  To create favourable conditions for solar manufacturing capability, particularly solar thermal for indigenous production and market leadership.  To promote programmes for off grid applications, reaching 1000 MW by 2017 and 2000 MW by 2022.  To achieve 15 million sq. meters solar thermal collector area by 2017 and 20 million by 2022.  To deploy 20 million solar lighting systems for rural areas by 2022. Proposed road map for the National Solar Mission The aspiration is to ensure large scale deployment of solar generated power for grid connected as well as distributed and decentralized off-grid provision for commercial energy services. The deployment across the application segments is envisaged as follows.
