Based in 1996, the corporate is likely one of the greatest distributors of sun panels on this planet and is widely known for generating silicon subject matter for photovoltaic (PV) programs and multi-crystalline wafers. With an annual quantity of one.5 gigawatts (GW), it has made greater than 40 million sun panels, with era of 11GW of energy for purchasers.
IKEA, Audi, Tiger Beer are a few of its consumers and it has 3 production amenities – two in Norway for making sun grade polysilicon and one in Singapore making PV cells and modules. The main Ecu logo for sun photovoltaic (PV) panels—has an annual sun panel manufacturing capability of one.8GW and has put in round 10GW capability globally.
REC’s different vary of sun modules are recognised as amongst trade leaders in potency, reliability and long-guaranteed lifestyles. The heterojunction (HJT) generation utilized by REC is helping its modules surpass the efficiency of alternative commonly-used applied sciences within the trade.
In India, the corporate has been provide for greater than 10 years.

The deal comes at a time when the rustic has offered a Rs 4,500-crore manufacturing related incentive (PLI) scheme for production sun photovoltaic modules. The scheme is predicted so as to add 10GW capability.
India has set a goal of 450GW renewable power capability via 2030. It these days has an put in renewable power capability of 89.63GW, with 49.59GW underneath execution.
