Abstract: Solar energy, a clean renewable resource with zero emission has got tremendous potential which can be harnessed using a variety of devices. With recent developments, solar energy systems are easily available for industrial and domestic use with the added advantage of minimum maintenance. The National Solar Mission is a major initiative of the Government of India to promote ecologically sustainable growth while addressing India’s energy security challenge. The immediate aim is to set up an environment for solar technology penetration in the country both at a centralised and decentralised level. ISRO, in its ever growing ambitious space programmes has to meet the widening supply-demand gap for electrical energy in the country. In line with this, initiatives have been taken for harnessing solar energy. This paper elucidates the recent initiatives of ISRO as a utility in harnessing solarpower.
