A Group of small and medium size solar PV module manufactures has formed an association“North India Module Manufacturer Association” (NIMMA) under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 to promote and voice the concerns of this segment.
NIMMA will act as an umbrella association for solar module manufacturers and will work towards maintaining a healthy business environment by providing necessary support to its members.
NIMMA will assist its members to develop, promote and improve the product and manufacturing standards, joint marketing strategies and will take up the concerns of its members with the concerned authorities. The Association will also work as a nodal platform for the development and process of scientific and economic research regarding development and manufacturing of solar PV module.
“We found that the existing solar associations in India are finding it difficult to cater to the needs of small and medium size solar modules manufacturers, who have some unique problems and issues. As such a need was felt for an organization, which can address the issues faced by small and medium size module manufacturers. NIMMA is the end result of the same,” said Mr. Manish Gupta, President, North India Module Manufacturer Association (NIMMA).
NIMMA is committed to promote solar energy by suggesting solar friendly policies and spreading awareness. NIMMA will also work closely with government authorities and with other national and international solar organizations in this regard. It will also organize and arrange meetings, seminars and workshops to promote and exchange views among member companies at regional and international levels.
“Currently, we have 25 members representing solar modules manufacturing capacity of around 1000MW. NIMMA membership is open to existing and prospective solar module manufacturers of North India,” said Mr. Manish Aggarwal, Vice President, North India Module Manufacturer Association (NIMMA).
