Vision and Mission
To promote and encourage solar energy and other renewable energy in the India and abroad & to unite all the solar energy related industries across the state for their empowerment and upgradation to keep the pace with the global standards. Raising the standard and utilization of the renewable energy both at home and in industries.
With the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi of Producing nearly half of the total generation or electricity in India. By 2030 India will be able to compete all other countries and independent for Solar and other renewable energy generation.
Federation of Solar Manufacturers & Intermediaries
(FEDSMI) is a brain child of Key Solar manufacturers of Gujarat. Having experience of appx 10 years in the industry all have decided to come up with the association for the industry itself and the cause for the Green Globe. The federation will help all the members in all aspects from business to social responsibility. Providing counselling to financial aid, Encouraging in the field of Research & Development, To act as Nodal Agency between Vendors (Govt/Electricity Boards/ Members) for Solar Energy Projects. Promote Trade Fairs , Exhibitions, Investors Meet, Awareness Programmes and Training institutes. To educate and motivate members and power consumers in conservation of energy and production of low cost electricity.
Overview – Solar Energy Industry in India
Being one of the fastest growing industry not only in terms of Business, globally it is required to generate and use renewable energy instead of utilising Crude Oil or Coal. Renewable energy helps in balancing the environment and can be utilised by natural resources only. India also came up with the
Among the top 10 oil & Petroleum products importer in the world. The increased use of indigenous renewable resources is expected to reduce India’s dependence on expensive imported fossil fuels.
“Make in India” project with the help of Renewable energy, India has increased its capacity from 2.5GW to 10.50GW in mere 3 years. Solar Energy Not only environment friendly, solar energy is quite comparable with the fossil fuels.
India is continuing to develop the use of off-grid solar power for localized energy needs. India has a poor electrification rate in rural areas. In 2015, only 55% of all rural households had access to electricity, and 85% of rural households depended on solid fuel for cooking. Solar products like Solar Lanterns, Solar Cookers, Solar Water Heater, Solar Lights (Govt initiated with Solar Street Lights) cost of the Energy generation has gone down and helped the nature by least pollution.
FEDSMI – Gujarat
Gujarat is leading in the Solar Power generation in India. With the good infrastructure and easy proximity of resources like availability of wasteland, good connectivity, transmission and distribution infrastructure. These attributes are complemented by a strong political will and an investment, according to a report by the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP). The robust 2009 Solar Power of Gujarat policy framework, financing mechanism, and incentives, have contributed to creating an enabling a green investment climate in the state. The State of Gujarat has commissioned Asia’s largest solar park at Charanka village. The park is already generating 2 MW solar power out of its total planned capacity of 500 MW. The park has been functioning on a multi-developers and multi-beneficiaries paradigm, and has been awarded for being the most innovative and environment-friendly project by the CII.
Unique initiation of solar power generation by putting solar panels on the Narmada canal branches. As a part of this scheme, the State has already commissioned the 1 MW Canal Solar Power Project on a branch of the Narmada Canal near the Chandrasan area of Kadi taluka, Mehsana.
