Another region that has gained traction in solar EPC market is the Asia Pacific, on account of the rising investments in the renewable sector backed by favorable government initiatives. Investment subsidies, positive regulatory programs, renewable integration targets and government reforms have certainly reinforced the APAC solar EPC industry in recent years.

For instance, recently India’s Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) approved a proposal to set up 12 GW of solar projects using locally-made equipment by 2023, an initiative the will certainly boost the region’s economic growth, in turn, paving the way for the expansion of APAC solar EPC industry.

A vital form of contracting procedure, solar EPC is extensively used to provide end-to-end services associated with construction, design, procurement and commissioning. Powered by the growing demand by emerging countries for clean, sustainable electricity and the robust efforts by industry players to develop new high-efficient systems, the global solar PV market is expected to emerge as one of the most remunerative verticals of the overall energy sphere.
