Indian Railway (IR), one of the world's largest rail networks comprising 115,000 km (71,000 mile) of track over a route of 65,436 km (40,660 mile) and 8,495 stations. In 2014-15, IR carried 8.397 billion passengers’ i.e. more than 23 million passengers a day besides 1050 million tons of freight.

IR has set an internal target of 1 GW from solar by 2022, of which 500 MW will be from rooftop projects, and the rest from ground mounted projects. Currently, only around 10 MW of solar has been installed. While work on rooftop projects are underway, with tenders totalling around 250 MW in various stages of finalization/ execution, there is not much clarity on how to meet the target from ground mounted projects, apart from intentions of procuring solar power from upcoming solar parks. It should be noted that all the rooftop projects would be catering to the non-traction loads.

IR has more than 44,000 ha of land chunks spread across the country and trackside lands ranging in width of zero to 30 m along its 66,000 km long tracks, which can be used to generate solar power for meeting its traction demand. The land chunks can theoretically support installations of more than 25,000 MW of solar PV capacity. IR and its responsible agencies for solar deployment are realizing the need for identification and assessment of land from the perspective of solar potential, development of feasible business models to attract investments and technology package for solar integration to meet traction load.

IR has initiated trialing SPVs on building rooftops and platform shelters. However, on land potential is still largely untapped there is still a need for in-depth techno-economic feasibility assessments, standardized procedures and capacity reinforcements for engaging the private sector through Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP) modalities, innovative financing mechanisms, that are critical for scaling up the deployment and meeting the 1 GW target in the next 5 years and 5 GW by 2025. UNDP has initiated a scoping study which will help IR to improve the investment climate for its solar deployment target while reducing carbon emissions and creating thousands of jobs.
