Make India a global solar energy hub, says PM

India’s prime minister urged global companies on Wednesday to make the sun-baked South Asian nation a solar energy hub as the country seeks to cut its chronic power shortages.
India, which has an average of 300 sunny days a year, sees solar power as a potentially vital energy source that could be key to boosting power supplies and reducing greenhouse gas emission in the world’s third-worst carbon polluter.

“India is potentially a large market for production of such (solar) equipment and it is also a potentially competitive, attractive production base for supplying other countries,” Premier Manmohan Singh told a global energy conference.

“We therefore strongly encourage global manufacturers to set up production facilities in this area,” Singh said at the Fourth Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in New Delhi attended by representatives of over 20 nations.
