Informa Markets India renews REI Expo in physical form

The Renewable Energy India (REI) Expo, an Informa Markets in India organised event for the renewable energy industry, is back for its 14th edition, 15–17 September 2021, at the India Expo Mart, Greater Noida.

This year, the three-day event is in physical format and will bring together decision-makers and influencers as well as technical experts and professionals from companies involved in the renewable energy generation, transmission, and distribution.

A live conference agenda aims to reflect on a vast array of Innovations and new technologies. The conference will comprise panel discussions and presentations on topics that include ‘Transformative Mobility and Battery Storage’, and ‘Road ahead for Rooftop Solar’.

Organisers say REI's return has been received with great enthusiasm by global stakeholders with the UK joining as ’Partner Country‘ and European Union (EU) as an ‘International Partner’. The expo will also feature Adani Solar, LONGI Solar, Waare Energies, Goldi Solar, and Premier Energies.

Jennifer Fagan, first secretary for trade and investment, energy, at the UK’s Department for International Trade, said: “Earlier this year, the UK and Indian Prime Ministers agreed to step up UK-India collaboration on climate change and low carbon transition. This was done through a new partnership on renewables and power, including offshore wind, energy efficiency and storage and electric mobility, and to explore joint work on green hydrogen.”

Ugo Astuto, ambassador of the EU to India, commented: “Both the EU and India have very ambitious renewable energy targets and are taking concrete and innovative actions to ensure that these ambitions become reality. The EU-India Clean Energy and Climate Partnership is a key priority for EU-India co-operation, focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy, integration in the grid, finance, and climate action.”

Yogesh Mudras, managing director of Informa Markets in India, stated: “The Indian renewable energy industry has significantly matured over the past 4-5 years. The country is targeting about 450 GW of installed renewable energy capacity by 2030 from which about 280 GW is expected from solar. According to recent reports, India seems to have achieved a 28% emission reduction over 2005 levels, against the target of 35% for 2030.”

Mudras added: “Since the pandemic, we have delivered eight live events in six different cities, strictly adhering to our Informa AllSecure Standards and commitments. Witnessing such a great response and support from the industry in our Re-Start 2.0, we are looking forward to taking REI to a new level in the coming years.”
