MNRE Approval

On 30th August 2017 Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) issued an order implementing certification to solar photovoltaic devices. MNRE also directed financial institutes to favour BIS certified solar power devices over other devices present in the market. BIS certification is a voluntary choice to manufacturers. In 2019 order MNRE made it mandatory to obtain BIS certification for solar cell, module and inverter manufacturers. Exemptions are made for domestic solar module manufacturer with an annual capacity less than 50 MW until 2020.

Solar panels are devices used to absorb the sun’s rays and convert them into electricity or heat. A solar (photovoltaic) panel is a collection of solar cells that can be used to generate electricity by the photovoltaic effect. These cells are managed in a grid-like pattern on the floor of solar panels. The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE)[1] announced a Compulsory Registration Scheme for solar module manufacturers under the Approved List of Modules & Manufacturers (ALMM), to reduce India’s dependence on solar-related product imports & marking India as self-reliant.

MNRE also directed financial institutes to favour BIS-certified solar power devices over other devices in the market. BIS certification is a voluntary choice of manufacturers. In 2019, MNRE made it mandatory to obtain BIS certification for solar cell, module and inverter manufacturers. This is an addition to the quality check by the Indian Government, which is at present limited to product (BOM) testing through the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). In this blog, we will discuss how to obtain BIS Certification for Solar Panels in India.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) is the nodal Ministry of the Government of India for all matters relating to new and renewable energy. The broad aim of the Ministry is to develop and deploy new and renewable energy for supplementing the energy requirements of the country.
