Insights into India’s Energy Transition at Intersolar India – Opening in less than a week

November   28,   2017   Intersolar   India   Exhibition   and Conference will open its doors in less than a week on December 5 -7, 2017 at the Bombay Exhibition  Centre  (BEC)  in  Mumbai,  providing  a  platform  for  all  industry  professionals  to meet,  exchange,  discuss  challenges  and  solutions  and  promote  the  interest  of  the  solar industry. In this year’s event, certified by the U.S. Commercial Services, more than 12,000 international  visitors  are  expected.  More  than  260  exhibitors  are  showcasing  their  latest products  and  solutions  in  Hall  1  of  the  BEC.  From  special  forums  to  workshops  and  an extensive   conference,   this   year’s   show   will   be   powered   by   the   tremendous   energy generated by special activities. The Intersolar Conference program is packed with exciting and  diversified  topics.  More  than  500  conference  delegates  can  expect  sessions  on  the Indian   PV   market,   PV   manufacturing,   rooftop   systems,   project   financing,   innovative technologies,  PV  quality  assurance,  agro-PV,  floating  PV,  Smart  Renewable  Energy  topics like  electrical  energy  storage,  mini-/micro  grid  and  e-mobility  and  many  more  at  the Intersolar India Exhibition and Conference Program.

India is at the vanguard of the world’s rapid transformation to smart energy. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is driving clean energy at an unprecedented rate, while India’s energy consumption  is set to double over the next 6-7 years. The Government of India has set itself a highly ambitious task of having installed 175 GW of green energy by 2022. The target includes 60 GW from wind and 100 GW from solar, whereas the latter is split into 60 GW ground-mounted and 40 GW of rooftop.

Special Exhibitions on Electrical Energy Storage and Power2Drive  Between 2016 and 2030 the global electrical energy storage (ees) market is forecasted to double six times in total according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. During this time more than 103 billion USDs are projected to flow into the sector and more than 125 GW of total capacity is going to be installed. USA, Japan and India will install 50% of the predicted energy storage systems by 2030.

Around  50  companies  with  electrical  energy  storage  solutions  will  show  their  latest  technology  at Intersolar  India.  ees  is  dedicated  to  renewable  energy  storage  solutions,  from  residential  and commercial  applications  to  large-scale  storage  systems  to  stabilize  the  grid.  Attendees  of  the Intersolar  India  Conference  will  get  insights  from  policymakers,  utilities  and  battery  companies  on lessons learnt in the field of electrical energy storage integration and how this field has grown in other countries, sharing their views on how to steer developments in India more actively.

E-Mobility is an evolving industry in India. As early as 2013, the Government launched the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan to achieve 7 million vehicles by 2020. This was followed by the Government’s notification of the Scheme Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles in India for implementation from 1st April 2015.  But the real big announcement came in April this year, when Shri. Piyush Goyal, Minister for Power & Renewable Energy, said that India would only sell electric vehicles by 2030.  Closely following this, the state owned Energy Efficiency Services Ltd floated a tender for 10,000 EVs. Under Phase 1, tender for 1000 vehicles for use by the Government, was floated. Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahendra won the contract. A second tender for 20,000 will be floated in early 2018. Simultaneously tenders for 4,000 Chargers are also being floated. These fast moves have sowed the seeds for an exciting EV transition in India.

At  the  Intersolar  India  Conference  session  on  E-Mobility,  experts  of  this  emerging  technology  will share  information  on  the  latest  market,  technical  and  policy  developments.  Electric  mobility  and energy storage systems of the high power segment being used in the automotive sector - will also enormously help in bringing down the concerns around large scale integration of RE to the power grid.

Networking, Forums, Trainings and Workshops  A  two  day  Intensive  PV  Technical  Training  course  is  co-located  with  the  conference.  This  would  be conducted by Mr. Sean White, Professor & IREC Certified Master Trainer from White House Solar, USA. The  course  will  cover  basics  of  electricity  and  PV  technologies,  different  types  of  PV  systems,  EPC contracting and safe installation practices with hands-on PV system demonstration. Attendees will be provided with course material and receive a White House Solar Certification at the end of the course.

Further  forums,  workshops  and  networking  events  complement  the  Intersolar  India  Exhibition  and Conference Program this year. The off-grid workshop organized by the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE)  will  focus  on  current  markets  and  policies,  business  opportunities,  cross-sector  cooperation, standards and showcase financial and technical instruments supporting rural electrification projects in India and South Asia.

The Forum on Green Jobs, organized by the Skill Council for Green Jobs (under the Ministry of Skill Development  and  Entrepreneurship)  will  address  issues  around  talent  acquisition  and  manpower management.  Well  trained  and  skilled  manpower  is  crucial  for  achieving  the  ambitious  175  GW renewable energy goal. Skill Council for Green Jobs (SCGJ) has been created as part of “Skill India Mission”.

The networking reception “Solar Power Developers Night” scheduled at the end of conference sessions on the first day will provide the exhibitors, conference delegates, speakers and visitors, opportunities to network in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying drinks and finger food.

In  a  nutshell  -  an  exciting  three  days  of  solar  festivities  and  celebrations  awaits  you  at  Intersolar India. Make sure you are there.
