EU Zone at Renewable Energy India Expo 2021

EU Zone at Renewable Energy India Expo 2021

The 14th edition of REI expo ( will be a hybrid event, scheduled in both physical and virtual forms. The REI Expo plans to bring together stakeholders from across the world including Policy makers, CXOs of leading companies, exhibitors, etc. working in the renewable energy sectors such as solar, wind, bioenergy, etc. The Delegation of the European Union (EU) to India through the EU-India Clean Energy and Climate Partnership (CECP) project has set up a dedicated “EU Zone” showcasing technologies, products and expertise from EU Member States, industry associations, projects and companies. 

During the conference, the EU will have 2 moderated sessions that will bring together key players from both the EU and India to discuss the opportunities and challenges in rooftop solar and offshore wind. The EU Zone and the sessions can be accessed by visiting:

Details of the session are below:  

Session 1: Road ahead for Rooftop Solar
Date and Time: Thursday, 15th September 2021 
Time: 2:00 - 3:00 PM (IST)/10:30 - 11:30 AM (CEST)

Under the ongoing EU-India Clean Energy & Climate Partnership (CECP) project, a study has been commissioned to analyse the rooftop market in India to identify possible barriers/challenges/issues that might limit the growth of the sector. Additionally, the rooftop market scenario in EU has also been analysed to understand the key drivers and innovative business models existing in the EU with the aim to recommend possible solutions suitable for India to further enhance rooftop solar PV uptake. A panel discussion will be hosted to discuss the progress made so far by India in RTS sector, gaps in the existing framework and business models that can accelerating the deployment of rooftop solar projects.

Session 2: Tapping the Offshore Wind energy potential in India
Date and Time: Thursday, 16th September 2021 
Time: 3:30 - 4:30 PM (IST)/12:00 - 13:00 Hrs (CEST)

India has a long coastal line of about 7,600 kilometers which offers considerable Offshore wind energy generation potential. However, the Offshore wind sector is yet to materialize in India. The session will inter alia discuss a study that looks into the skills that are needed, which might either be available already or will have to be developed through possible collaboration with other training facilities/institutes, including in the European Union (EU). The report will be presented in the session, followed by a panel discussion.
