At the 8th Annual India Investment Forum, Farooq Abdullah, minister of new and renewable energy said that the renewable energy scenario in India is buoyant and promising and in the next year alone, India plans to add over 3 GW of renewable energy capacity with an investment opportunity of over US $6 billion. The minister pointed out that a recent report by Ernst & Young in May 2011 ranked India as the third best investment destination in renewable energy sector, next only to China and the US, called upon the entrepreneurs and stakeholders to join together in this effort.

Dr Abdullah invited the US companies also to invest in manufacturing in India. He said India’s large solar demand will provide the committed market and its excellent manufacturing ecosystem, technical skills and cheap labour will help make manufacturing profitable and successful.
