Intersolar In­dia 2016

Power Watch India - - EVENTS -

The In­dian so­lar mar­ket is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing strong growth, bring­ing it ever closer to the In­dian gov­ern­ment’s goal of in­creas­ing the in­stalled pho­to­voltaic (PV) ca­pac­ity to 100 gi­gawatts (GW) by 2022. Against the back­drop of this progress, Intersolar In­dia opened in the Bom­bay Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­ter in Mum­bai. Over 230 ex­hibitors are pre­sent­ing their prod­ucts, ser­vices and so­lu­tions for the so­lar in­dus­try un­til Oc­to­ber 21. The ex­hi­bi­tion is ac­com­pa­nied by the Intersolar In­dia Con­fer­ence, where the In­dian so­lar mar­ket and pri­vate roof­mounted in­stal­la­tions are the cen­ter of at­ten­tion.

Intersolar In­dia 2016 was in­au­gu­rated by Falk Senger, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Messe München GmbH, Michael Sch­mela, Ex­ec­u­tive Ad­vi­sor - So­lar Power Europe, Bel­gium, Dr Daniel Strow­itzki, CEO - Freiburg Man­age­ment and Mar­ket­ing In­ter­na­tional GmbH, Dr Amarpal Singh, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive - Pun­jab En­ergy De­vel­op­ment Agency (PEDA), Dr Robert Habeck, State Min­is­ter – Min­istry of En­ergy, Agri­cul­ture, the En­vi­ron­ment and Ru­ral Ar­eas, Sch­leswig Hol­ste in Ger­many, Gre­gory Taevs, Com­mer­cial Con­sul of United States in Mum­bai, Dr Flo­rian Wessendorf, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor - So­lar Pro­mo­tion In­ter­na­tional Co Ltd, Bhupin­der Singh, CEO - Messe München In­dia.

Big steps to­wards the 2022 tar­get

The In­dian so­lar mar­ket is grow­ing at a breath­tak­ing pace. Ac­cord­ing to the In­dia So­lar Map 2016, pub­lished in Septem­ber this year by the con­sul­tancy firm Bridge to In­dia, In­dia’s in­stalled so­lar ca­pac­ity grew by 80% to 8.1 GW from mid2015 to mid-2016. 75% of the de­ploy­ment took place in four states in the south. When all the projects cur­rently under con­struc­tion are added to the cur­rent in­stal­la­tions, the re­sult is a to­tal pho­to­voltaic ca­pac­ity of 23 GW. And this is only the be­gin­ning – as the In­dian gov­ern­ment plans to reach the 100 GW mile­stone by 2022.

The mar­ket con­di­tions are there­fore ideal for Intersolar In­dia, with the event once again an­tic­i­pat­ing pos­i­tive fig­ures to mark the 25th an­niver­sary of the Intersolar ex­hi­bi­tions in 2016. A to­tal of 230 ex­hibitors and over 11,000 vis­i­tors are ex­pected at the ex­hi­bi­tion space in the Bom­bay Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

Star-stud­ded con­fer­ence

This year, the Intersolar In­dia Con­fer­ence took place from Oc­to­ber 19–20 in par­al­lel with the ex­hi­bi­tion. It was opened by dis­tin­guished speak­ers, in­clud­ing Dr Robert Habeck, the Min­is­ter of En­ergy, Agri­cul­ture, the En­vi­ron­ment and Ru­ral Ar­eas for Sch­leswig-Hol­stein and Dr. Amarpal Singh, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive - Pun­jab En­ergy De­vel­op­ment Agency (PEDA). The ses­sion ti­tled Res­i­den­tial Rooftop Sys­tems – Sys­tem De­sign and Field Ex­pe­ri­ence in In­dia (au­di­to­rium, hall 1 on Oc­to­ber 20, 2016, 2:30pm–3:55pm) of­fers vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to find out more about pri­vate roof-mounted in­stal­la­tions. Ex­perts, mar­ket an­a­lysts, ar­chi­tects and de­ci­sion mak­ers are set to share their ex­pe­ri­ences with reg­u­la­tions, client ex­pec­ta­tions and tech­ni­cal prob­lems.

Another con­fer­ence high­light: Ex­perts from op­er­a­tions and main­te­nance will be dis­cussing the ques­tion Op­er­a­tion & Main­te­nance – a Bur­geon­ing Busi­ness in In­dia? on Oc­to­ber 20 in hall 1 (4:30pm6:00pm). This ses­sion will ad­dress un­cer­tain­ties, risks, chal­lenges and other fac­tors which com­pa­nies in this field face in the In­dian so­lar mar­ket.

ees In­dia

Once again this year, Intersolar In­dia will be ac­com­pa­nied by ees (elec­tri­cal en­ergy stor­age) In­dia. As many In­dian com­pa­nies op­er­ate in both the pho­to­voltaic and en­ergy stor­age sec­tors, this sup­ple­ments the event per­fectly, and sup­ports In­dia on the path to a re­new­able fu­ture.
