Solar Sector Indias Next Employment Hub

For graduate engineers eyeing the energy sector for jobs, solar companies could just be their next big destination. For every ten jobs created in solar factories, there will be 15 jobs created downstream, in installation, financing, project development and distribution. So to fulfil the target of 20,000 MW of installed solar power capacity under the National Solar Mission (NSM), the Indian solar sector would need over 100,000 skilled solar professionals by 2022. If we consider the potential employment generation by state solar policies, the cumulative figure would be much higher.

The solar industry will require 60-65 per cent electrical engineers, 20-25 per cent mechanical engineers, 10 per cent electronics engineers and remaining civil engineers in areas where technical expertise is required.

Skill sets required


You can work in the solar industry as a solar PV design engineer, process engineer, R&D professional, sales and marketing engineer, production manager, project manager, PV fabrication and testing technician, and so on.
For this position, you should be a B.Tech or M.Tech, and have the basic knowledge of solar systems, PV panels, inverter systems, DC cabling and DC AC systems. You should be highly analytic and capable of handling all the test equipment including logic analysers and remote monitoring. Knowledge of financial aspects of project report preparation, cost estimation and proposal preparation is required. Also, you must possess excellent communication skills, negotiation skills and analytically skills. You must be able to foresee the things and take actions proactively.

Career growth over the years


Entry-level positions start from trainee engineers in manufacturing, system and project design, installation, operation and maintenance, procurement, etc. A fresher or trainee engineer can earn Rs 20,000-25,000 a month.
You can earn anywhere between Rs 35,000 and Rs 40,000 a month depending on your individual skillset. Currently, professionals with eight to ten years of experience in the solar industry earn Rs 2-2.5 million per annum. Entry-level positions start from trainee engineers in manufacturing, system and project design, installation, operation and maintenance, procurement, etc.

Where to study


The solar PV industry is in a very nascent stage and the infrastructure not completely built in India. 

"Global Advanced Training & Educational Trust" is an educational institute registered under NCT New Delhi, Govt. of India and ISO 9001:2008 certified origination, provided PV solar Training for youth. GATE Trust established "Institute of Solar Technology" with a very excellent practical base training environment at main branch "NH-6, Panchla, Howrah, West Bengal" and IST branch allover India. 
   
Institute of Solar Technology provide hands-on training on PV solar system technical training. Previous Students of IST get job at verious EPC and manufacturing company allover India and many of them also start their own business at Kolkata, Guntur, Delhi and Kanpur.
