Asia’s largest renewable energy show, Gujarat’s pivotal role, and collaborative innovation for sustainability.
Informa Markets in India, the nation’s premier organizer of exhibitions, is gearing up to host the 16th edition of the monumental Renewable Energy India (REI) show, which stands as Asia’s largest expo in the renewable energy sector. The event is scheduled to take place from October 4th to 6th, 2023, at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, Delhi-NCR.
With just one month remaining until the shows commence, Informa Markets in India recently conducted an exclusive pre-event press conference at the Surat Marriott Hotel in Surat. This preview served as a dynamic platform for key stakeholders, government representatives, and members of the media to delve deeply into the boundless potential of India’s renewable energy industry. The spotlight also focused on the significant role that Gujarat plays as an enthusiastic participant in Asia’s leading exhibition on green and sustainable energy.
The high-powered panel at the event featured prominent figures such as Mr. Sandesh Shetty, National Sales Head (Modules) at Waaree Group; Mr. Bharat Bhut, Co-Founder & Director of Goldi Solar; Paresh Shingala, Director of Pahal Solar; Shwetal Shah, Technical Advisor at the Climate Change Department of the Government of Gujarat; Chirag Nakrani, Founder & Managing Director of Rayzon Solar; Ramesh Vaghasia, President of The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry; and Rudranil Roy sharma, Director of Energy & Environment at Frost & Sullivan India. Moderated by Rajneesh Khattar, Senior Group Director at Informa Markets in India, the vibrant panel engaged in discussions about critical topics that are shaping the future of renewable energy in India. These discussions included the investment climate, access to capital, emerging opportunities in Agro PV, Energy Storage, and Green Hydrogen, as well as strategies for sustainable growth within the dynamic industry landscape.
Building on the trajectory of success established by REI 2022, which attracted the attention of over 31,000 attendees, this year’s showcase is poised to welcome an even larger gathering, with projections exceeding 40,000 participants. This substantial increase speaks volumes about the growing traction and significance of REI within the renewable energy sector, particularly in India. India’s triumphant emergence on the global stage across multiple benchmarks further amplifies the resonance and relevance of this event.
Within this arena, Gujarat takes centre stage, charting an inspiring path in clean energy expansion. With aspirations to eclipse 38,000 MW by 2025 and surge past 61,000 MW by 2030 from its current capacity of 13,152 MW, Gujarat’s dedication shines through visionary projects like the Kutch hybrid park, firmly establishing itself as a frontrunner in the Indian clean energy revolution,” he added.
Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel’s vision for Gujarat as India’s renewable energy capital by 2025 is exemplified by substantial wind (6,835 MW) and solar (6,325 MW) installations as of December 2022. Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) further emphasises Gujarat’s prominence with an impressive renewable energy capacity of 13,160 MW.
The 16th Renewable Energy India 2023 Expo (REI) will reshape India’s renewable energy landscape, focusing on innovation, cutting-edge technologies, electric mobility, green hydrogen, and solar integration along the Jaipur-Delhi-Agra e-highway. The expo will also spotlight advancements in the Biogas, Bio Methane, and Bio Fertilizer industry, offering a remarkable opportunity to contribute to India’s sustainable energy future.
