Suzlon boss Tulsi Tanti – one of the most prominent figures in Indian renewables – today said he expects major reforms of the sector under the government of new Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Modi – whose BJP party swept to power in India’s general election – was a clean-energy policy pioneer as leader of the state of Gujarat, and talked up his ambitions for renewables during the campaign.

Tanti, chairman of India’s largest wind group, said: “We believe the BJP led government will provide an environment conducive for growth and investments, with major reforms in infrastructure and the renewable energy sector.

“This is important, as India’s economic environment will act as a catalyst in reviving the global economy.”

Gujarat has emerged as a leader in solar power over the last five years, and launched an incentive scheme in 2009 – before the country-wide National Solar Mission.
