India's rush to add solar power is being aided largely by a manufacturing overcapacity in China, driving down costs of photovoltaic cells and other equipment.
Unfortunately, in recent times the emphasis has shifted from reducing the demand of power in India through efficiency to increasing its supply. Except for limited exceptions, numerous studies have shown that people worldwide are under-investing in energy efficient products. While some of this may be due to lack of awareness, much of the problem stems from misaligned incentives -- for utilities, selling more "product" (electricity) is their measure of success (and profits).

The concept has been around for a while, but with Space-Based Solar Power (SBSP; tapping sunlight in space to generate clean constant energy) winning the top prize for innovation in technology for a clean and truly prosperous world at the D-3 (Diplomacy, Defense and Development) summit on 2 March in Washington, D.C, the idea seems closer to being realized than ever before. When seen in the context of recent developments in China and Japan, and with India waiting to get in on the action, the possibilities are electrifying.
