The second edition of the Global Renewable Energy (RE) Investors Meet and Expo (RE-INVEST 2017) will be held from 7th to 9th December, 2017 at the India Expo Centre, Greater Noida and National Capital Region of Delhi. France is the partner country for the event. 

India’s energy needs are going to double in the next 6 to 7 years at the present rate of growth of the economy. Nevertheless, India would continue to grow at a brisk pace and at the same time, decrease its carbon footprint so as to maintain its commitment towards giving the future generations a cleaner environment to live in. By 2030, 40% of India’s energy needs would be met by Renewable Energy.

India invites all Nations to partner in the endeavour to harness Clean Energy and Save the Planet.

RE-INVEST 2017 is likely to be inaugurated by the Prime Minister of India. It has been envisioned as a global event where strategies for development and deployment of renewable energy will be deliberated upon. Heads of various Ministries of India and Heads of International Agencies like International Energy Agency, International Renewable Energy Agency and bilateral and multilateral financing institutions will be participating in these sessions. The event will also include Government to Government, Government to Business and Business to Business interactions.

On the first day of the RE-INVEST, various Indian States will showcase their policy initiatives. There will also be a special session on India’s energy basket by 2030. The second day will have technical sessions on innovative financing, electric mobility, electricity storage solutions, and hybrid renewable energy. These sessions will be addressed by the best of the international industry experts. In addition, special sessions have been planned on financing, regulatory regimes and on India’s Solar Roof top programme.

The International Renewable Energy Agency has planned two sessions. The Founding Ceremony of the ISA will also be held on the second day in New Delhi. The second day will also see inauguration of Indraprastha Energy Park.

The final day will start with ISA’s Ministerial Plenary followed by roadmap to achieve ISA’s Vision and Mission and a session on ISA Financing. Thereafter, country sessions with Australia, United Kingdom, France, USA and Germany have been planned. A Corporate Conclave has also been planned on the final day. This conclave will be attended by CEOs of Fortune 500 companies.

On the sidelines of the RE-INVEST 2017, the Founding Ceremony of the ISA and Solar Summit has been scheduled on 8th & 9th December, 2017. The Founding Ceremony will firmly establish the ISA and demonstrate commitment to harness solar energy potential. All prospective member countries of the ISA have been invited to participate in these events.
