Visit us at Renewable Energy India Expo 2017, Noida.
After completing a successful decade of existence, the Renewable Energy India 2017 Expo (REI) is set to take place from 20th to 22nd September 2017 at the India Expo Center, Greater Noida.
Speaking on the announcement of the 11th anniversary of Renewable Energy India, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “The Indian solar sector is growing rapidly with a capacity addition of 4,765MW during H1 of 2017, according to a recent report. Rooftop solar is also showing a robust growth as solar power becomes increasingly more attractive with falling costs. Besides, India has recently moved up to the second spot from third position in this year’s ‘Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index’, nudging past US. All this is acting as a huge pull for international investors and equipment suppliers. UBM India’s objective for the 2017 edition of REI Expo is “Accelerating the Momentum…From Ambition to Action” being the theme of the show this year, and to bridge the gap between industry, Government & Investors.”
He added, “In a nutshell, REI 2017 is a marquee event in this sector with multiple country participation, best of technology, cost effective solutions, participation of Industry leaders, various country delegation, top global brands exhibiting their product and solution offerings, and a content rich conference.”
“REI is unquestionably the biggest and the best Renewable Energy Show in the country that attracts a vast national and international audience. It gives us, as players in the field of renewable energy, a platform to interact with potential buyers, policy makers, media and fellow industry experts. The Renewable Energy sector, especially the Solar Industry in India is going through a challenging time with regards to the anti-dumping duty, implementation of GST, increase in transmission and wheeling charges, high commissions and cess on third party purchase, to name a few. The insightful seminars that form an intrinsic part of the expo will help us address these challenges jointly as an industry. We at SolarMaxx eagerly look forward to participating at REI 2017.” said Mr. Saurabh Bhandari, Founder, SolarMaxx.
Speaking on the industry and REI, Mr. Suman Kumar, President, Rajasthan Solar Association said, “Solar has become the most competitive source of energy in India and around the world. We are living in the most exciting times for solar as industry is growing exponentially. India’s significant capacity growth is attracting many global solar players into the country and it all starts with REI every year. REI is undoubtedly Asia’s largest renewable event and this year there would be dedicated session on Rajasthan called “Advantage Rajasthan” to showcase business opportunities in the state. Solar companies from Rajasthan are participating in this year’s REI in an unprecedented number.”
The trade show will also be preceded by the 3rd Renewable Energy India Awards, slated for 19th September, 2017 that aims to recognise the efforts, innovation, and excellence and promote the talent in the industry. The Awards will have an august audience of industry stalwarts competing under various categories from both manufacturing & implementing communities.
