The changes in the global economy are bringing to the foreground many emerging countries, which until few years ago did not represent an attractive market for Italian companies.

Today we are take part in a extraordinary revolution that sees at the forefront the BRICS; Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. These are in fact the countries that are preparing to develop their economies. The major analysts indicate Brics as areas where there will be a real and constant growth in the coming decades.

Also for SMEs operating in the field of Green Energy is important to look beyond their national borders and evaluate internationalization opportunities to attack potential markets.

Among Brics, India has recently made ��a step forward in the field of renewable energy. In fact a few days ago, the Indian government has publicly presented the new project that foresee a significant investment here in five years for the development of photovoltaics. This strategic choice push more and more companies operating in the renewable energy to satisfy the increasing demands for products and know-how to meet the need for energy in the new markets.

The Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is planning to install 20 GW of photovoltaic systems called "ultra mega". This definition refers to the immensity of the project that involves the installation of 25 solar enormous solar plants with power of 500 MW and GW each. The total amount allocated in the form of incentives is 670 million $, ready to be invested in the mega project.

The Ministry will collaborate with both state governments with its solar division, called SECI Solar Energy Corporation of India to coordinate the development and organize the funds.

Each state government will be responsible for buying land, create the network connection - where missing - and study mitigation measures against damage caused by flooding, so as to reduce implementation time and cost of each project.

In particular, priority will be given to non-agricultural land and those contaminated by waste, giving 5 acres per megawatt developed. In addition, the state authorities must buy the 20% of the energy generated in the areas where it is not guaranteed the electricity distribution network.
