US wants India to explore manufacturing a cheaper Solar Tech amid high dependence on China

US Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette, on October 28, during his address to a virtual press conference at the conclusion of the India energy forum at the IHS CERA Week, said that the United States wants India to explore ways to manufacture a cheaper alternative to silicon solar cells, which comes amid high dependence on Chinese technology.

Adding further, Brouillette said that India was “perfectly positioned as a potential manufacturer” of perovskite cells, on which a research was being conducted by the United States at its national laboratory in Colorado.

“We have seen recently with this pandemic, supply chain issues have arisen with countries like China and in certain cases we have become overly dependent upon one country,” he added. “It is a technology we want to share with India, we think it is better done there than other parts around the world,” he further said.
