Redefining Solutions by Embracing Leading-edge Technologies
Technology has a global impact and has assisted industries across various sectors to improve efficiency and offer higher quality standards. Advancement in technology has also helped the solar industry to grow by leaps and bounds. Companies have embraced technology to develop a newer type of particles or cells to enhance the efficiency.  Technical supremacy has resulted in reducing the manufacturing and installation costs of solar panels and other associated items over the last decade. This transformation has fastened the pace of adoption of solar energy at a large scale as the unit cost has reduced to a great extent.
Energy storage systems are yet another example of technical innovation as storage of the energy generated is quite essential. Implementing ESS also helps to manage grid stabilization in an effective manner. Along with roof-top installations, floating solar plants on canals and rivers are now possible by accepting technology as finding large or unproductive land is always a challenge. With the increased production of materials which allows using the solar panels into the building is broadening the scope of solar energy as the obvious choice for the next generation.
Unique Product and Services – Making the Key Difference

With a foresight to evolve as a major contributor in the solar industry, Rays Future Energy is working and developing the CAPEX and RESCO models under the roof-top segment. Apart from being a complete solution-provider, it also offers guidance to its clients to optimize the utilization of resources.

It also owns projects and provides access to electricity to high rated corporates at prices which are competent and lower than the existing grid tariffs.

Top Trends Shaping the Future of the Industry
The Government has set an ambitious target of generating 100GW solar energy by 2022. This has set the pace for the players as the industry has witnessed exponential growth over the recent years and is on the track to achieve the target. The development of distributed solar across the country has boosted the potential for income generation using solar power. Off-grid solutions have further cemented this quest as it has managed to connect to the most remote corners of the country. Providing electricity to villages which have never seen electricity since independence has been one of the milestones and a major step to eradicate darkness forever.
The industry-friendly policies initiated by the Government and access to more information by the industries are playing a pivotal role to accelerate the growth-plan. As corporates and industries open-up to embrace different models, it has attributed to lower the dependency on conventional and polluting sources of energy. Development of large solar parks with common infrastructure facilities is another trend which is shaping up on a large scale. This has helped in the utilization of large swathes of unproductive land and also reduces the cost for per unit of electricity due to economies of scale as well as by attracting investments from a lot of foreign investors. Consolidation is also occurring at a fast pace which is assisting players to exit and reinvest towards the development of new assets.
