Mr. Tobias Winter, Director of the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF) gave a presentation on "Agrivoltaics - Roadmap to Scale up Installation of Solar PV in Farms in India". He gave compelling insights into the challenges and potentials that agrivoltaics offers in India. He also presented a study by Fraunhofer ISE that shows that if only 1% of the agricultural land in India were equipped with agrivoltaics, this could already provide a capacity of 630 GWp. 

ISGF has been organising its flagship annual event, India Smart Utility Week (ISUW) since 2015, and it is considered as one of the top five international events on Smart Grids and Smart Cities.
