Renewable Energies and Storage Technologies for the Charging Infrastructure in India

A delegation from Germany on the topic of Renewable Energy and Energy Storage Technologies for Charging Infrastructure was organised by the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC) from 6 - 10 December 2021 in association with eclareon GmbH. This project was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) as a part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative. 

The objective of the business trip was to present German technologies enabling e-vehicle charging infrastructure which also included renewable energy generation and its storage to enable a true green transition to mobility and to establish business partnerships between German and Indian companies.

On 6 December, the online event kicked off with a briefing session for the German participants. The briefing session aimed to prepare the German companies for their journey to India by providing overviews of the macroeconomic scenario in India as well as about the renewable energy, e-mobility, charging infrastructure and energy storage sectors. This was complemented by a session on “Intercultural aspects while doing Business in India”.

Experts participating in the briefing were Mr. Tobias Winter, Director, Indo-German Energy Forum-SO, Dr. Debi Prasad Dash, Executive Director at the India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), as well as, Mr. Sumit Sharma, Director, IGCC Bengaluru and Franziska Roettger, IGCC.

A second day was marked by the Technology Symposium where the 5 German Companies presented their companies and products to the Indian audience. The session started with a welcome address by Dr. Stephan Hesselman, Economic Minister Counsellor, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and by Stefan Halusa, Director General, IGCC. The technical segment opened with a presentation on the Market Diffusion and Impact on the Energy System in Electric Mobility in Germany by Dr. Till Gnann, Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI. Thereafter the 5 participating German companies presented their solutions and company activities. The event was attended by 122 participants from India from the energy, e-mobility, infrastructure sectors and manufacturing sectors.

B2B meetings organised on the following 3 days with numerous Indian companies gave the German companies the opportunity to explore the potential in the Indian market. We trust that this will lead to more Indo-German collaborations in the near future and support the goals of both countries towards reducing carbon emissions.
