It is an opportune forum to discuss ideas and viewpoints which will shape the future of renewable energy growth on a national and international level. Many companies and stakeholders will be promoting their latest products and innovations this year. India’s achievements speak for themselves in the Renewable Energy (RE) space. The country has emerged as the fourth largest installed renewable energy capacity in the world and registered the highest growth rate in RE capacity addition across the world. Besides, the 2070 target of Net Zero Carbon emission as committed by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi could boost India’s economy by 4.7 percent above projected baseline and create 20 million additional jobs by 2032. This transition needs to be affected in a strategic manner and events like REI will enable the same through deliberations, sharing of market intelligence, intellectual exchanges, ideological diplomacy, and problem-solving tactics.”
The Chief Guest of the event, Shri. Bhagwant Khuba, Union Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilisers & New and Renewable Energy, Government of India said, “The government of India has already set its target of making India carbon emission-free in the coming years and witnessing industries take the responsibility so efficiently is definitely going to help us accomplish the aim sooner. Renewable Energy Expo has introduced new segments of energy resources and the participation of established experts will undoubtedly lead our country in a better direction. This exhibition will generate massive investment opportunities for industries, promote foreign investments and create awareness regarding the same among consumers. India is growing vigorously in the sector of renewable energy and alternative sources, solar, wind, and electrical energy. The government is also ramping up measures to increase volumes of green hydrogen generation and the support of industrialists is a boon to flourish in the segment.”
