Informa Markets in India is set to host the 15th Crystal edition of Asia’s largest expo in the renewable energy space, the Renewable Energy India Expo 2022. The show will run 28-30 September at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR.
Informa Markets in India organised a pre-event press briefing about the market potential of the renewable energy industry in India.
Organisers say the REI expo has gained strong support from the Indian Bio Gas Association (IBA), Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), National Highway of Electric Vehicles (NHEV), World Business Council of Sustainable Development (WBCSD), Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), Bridge to India (BTI), and among international participation, from United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Indo Latin American Chamber of Commerce (ILACC), CleanTech Business Club and Indo German Energy Forum (IGEF).
Dignitaries including Jennifer Kay, first secretary and trade commissioner at Canada High Commission, Rohit Gadre, senior associate, Bloomberg NEF and Babette Desfossez, trade and investment commissioner, Embassy of Belgium, attended the briefing.
Market insights, including into the Indian legal structure and regulatory design, commercial applications of renewable energy resources, and paradigm shifts in the industry, will all be discussed at the event.
The expo will focus on elevating the standards of IPP, solar cells, solar PV modules, solar panels, batteries, EV chargers and infrastructure, components, biomass and wind.
On the sidelines of the show, events including the All-CEO Conclave, CTO Forum, A Finance Leadership Forum, REI Awards and three days power pack conference will all take place. New launches, product demos, and free training programmes are also being lined up and there will be a two-day training workshop on Green Hydrogen by Steinbeis University, Berlin.
India’s PM Modi has underlined the country’s commitment to a more intensive adoption of green energy and his Cabinet has formally approved the updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), in which India aims to reduce the emission intensity of its GDP by 45% by 2030. It will also indicate India’s shift to non-fossil fuel-based energy resources and the sourcing of 50% of its cumulative electric power installed capacity from it by 2030. That is part of India’s move to achieve net zero by 2070.
Yogesh Mudras, managing director, Informa Markets in India, said: “The RE focus of the government is to increase self-reliance and ease of doing business while reducing India’s dependence on solar imports. The Indian Government launched the National Portal for Rooftop Solar to track applications for the inspection of plants. As a policy, it is mandatory for solar cell and module manufacturers to register under the Approved List of Models and manufacturers (ALMM).”
“The REI will promote bilateral talks between countries and multipolarity and an international congruence to meet green energy goals,” he added.
Informa Markets in India hosts over 25 large scale exhibitions, along with 40 conferences, industry awards and training sessions across the country and has offices in Mumbai and New Delhi.
