IST Testimonial

IST Alumni Testimonial

According to me, this was the best teaching institute. Clearing concept with giving different live example, how to convince the client and how to show the positive 
- Prashant Wasudevrao Kalbande, 
Asst Professor at WCEM, Nagpur

A good platform to learn new ideas in Solar Technology 
Asst. Manager at TaeguTec India P Limited

The instructor was committed towards his teaching which was completely presentation based and he answered every question we asked him. The method was completely presentation based which help us to have a better understanding. Very good institute which is imparting a wonderful knowledge about the solar technology which will thus help us in becoming aware of the transition which is taking place in the country and be a part of it. 
- Prashant Juneja, 
Asst. System Engineer at TATA Consultancy Service Ltd

It is the good institute and good training course.  
- Amitkumar Mandavkar, 
Asst Manager at HPCL

Great place for Learning Pv Solar Technology. Faculty is very helpful and have complete knowledge according to present market. As I am from the non-technical background faculty use to relate things according to my understanding and give example for my better understanding  
- Kaustubh Gupta, 
Manager Operations at Fairdeal Agencies

The course is good. Most important things about IST training is Solar in-depth analysis, solar panels installation Practical sessions.

Project planning
Activities at the project planning phase comprise site selection, technical and financial feasibility studies, engineering design and project development. The first two activities involve measuring the solar resource potential and estimating the environmental and social impacts of developing a solar plant on an identified site. Engineering design involves identifying the technical aspects of the mechanical and electrical systems, the civil engineering work and infrastructure, the construction plan and the operations and maintenance (O&M) model. Project development consists of administrative tasks such as obtaining land rights, permits, licenses and approvals from different authorities; managing regulatory issues; negotiating and securing financing; negotiating and signing insurance contracts; contracting an engineering company; negotiating the rent or purchase of the land; and managing the procurement processes.

EXAMPLE: Planning a 50 MW solar PV plant requires an estimated 2,120 person-days of labour. Project development activity accounts for about 59 percent of this labour (1,250 person-days), followed by site selection (17%), engineering design (12%), and feasibility analyses (12%). Table 1 presents a breakdown of the total workforce needed in project planning by activity.
Almost 40 percent of the total person-days needed are for legal, energy regulation, real estate and taxation experts.

Below are top government programme initiatives taken by the government in the solar sector to push more and more individuals and companies globally to go solar and 100% renewable:

Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission

– The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission was launched in January 2010 by former Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh. Its aim is to reduce the cost of solar power generation and install 20,000MW of grid-connected solar power. 

Rooftop Scheme

– Under the rooftop scheme executed by SECI (Solar Energy Corporation of India), 200 MW of projects has been allocated, out of which 45 MW of capacity have been commissioned. Addition to this, special schemes including 73 MW for warehouses and 50 MW for the CPWD (Central Public Works Department) have been launched. 

Solar Park Scheme

– MNRE has come up with a scheme to set up a number of solar parks across several states, each with a capacity of almost 500 MW.  The solar park will enable states to bring in investment from project developers and offer employment opportunities to the local population.

VGF (Viability Gap Funding) Scheme –

Viability Gap Funding scheme is implemented by SECI. In the past few years, SECI has made multiple project allocations under the VGF mechanism. The first 750 MW allocation has already been executed of which 680 MW capacity has been installed and commissioned. VGF support will be provided for setting up of grid-connected solar PV projects of a minimum 2000 MW capacity by solar power developers on build own operate basis.

Government Yojana Solar Energy Subsidy Scheme –

Under this Scheme, financial assistance and capital subsidy will be provided to the applicant to the extent of 50 percent, 75 percent and 90 percent of the basis of basic cost of the solar energy plant.

UDAY Scheme

– UDAY or Ujjwal Discom Assurance Yojna was launched in November 2015 as a revival package for electricity distribution companies of India initiated by the Government of India with the idea to find permanent solar power solutions to the financial mess that the power distribution was facing at that time.
