India’s utility-scale solar boom is turning heads all over the world and PV developers are hungry to win a stake in this highly competitive field. However, getting one’s first foothold in India can be a tall order, made more imposing by unique circumstances around the various forms of financing.

Renewable energy firm Mytrah Energy, an India-focused subsidiary of London-headquartered Mytrah Group, has close to 1GW of wind installations already in India and plans to start its solar business in earnest this year having won 422MW of solar PV capacity in the various competitive state solar auctions.

Bob Smith, executive vice president and head of asset management at Mytrah Energy, spoke to PV Tech to give a perspective from a company already well established inside India.
