The Solar Rooftop Policy Coalition was born towards the end of 2014, shortly after the Government of India announced a target for rooftop solar of 40 GW by 2022. The Khemka Foundation and UK Department for International Development agreed to work together, linking up with The Climate Group, to study how the government’s ambition could be achieved. The Shakti Foundation joined soon after as the fourth funding partner.
The report focuses on how solar on the roofs of business, institutions and homes can be scaled up to the Government’s target of installing 40 GW of rooftop solar capacity by 2022. Rooftop solar will contribute to India’s energy security and is an important part of achieving the Government’s overall target of 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022.
