The MNRE has announced the National Lab Policy for the renewable energy sector. The policy is aimed at improving the quality and reliability of renewable energy projects in India by creating a robust and efficient system of testing, standardisation and certification. Under the policy, performance certification will be made mandatory. In addition, regardless of their international certification prior to export to India, imported systems and components will be tested for efficiency and performance in Indian climate conditions. Moreover, a standards test and quality control committee will be set up under the MNRE.
