Sankar Chodagam, managing director of Titan Energy Systems, said: “High-efficiency solar technology presents significant advantages in terms of land use and balance of system costs, and Suniva is our key partner for delivering the high power and volumes needed to keep projects reliably moving forward.”

The Indian government recently approved a National Solar Mission, which includes a target of deploying at least 20GW of solar projects by 2020, as part of its national strategy to provide power to millions of citizens and combat climate change. Over the next five years, Titan plans to develop a series of large-scale projects and installations in Andhra Pradesh, India.

John Baumstark, CEO of Suniva, said: “As India pursues its significant goals for solar power, innovative solar cell technology will be just as crucial as new system designs and deployment strategies.

“We maintain a close and open dialogue with Titan in order to provide them with the best possible technology solutions and look forward to partnering with them in the recently announced 1GW project in Andhra Pradesh. Our collaborative projects in India, the US and throughout the world will help shape the future of renewable energy.”
