MIIM Webinar on Indian Renewable Energy

On April 30 2020, the Embassy of India in Berlin organised a webinar on “Indian Renewable Energy Opportunities” together with the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF-SO) as part of the initiative “Make in India Mittelstand (MIIM)”. German companies from the renewable energy sector were provided with insights into the Indian renewables market as well as the hurdles for a market entry.

Mr. Anup Barapatre, EAC International Consulting presented “India Renewable Energy Opportunities” to the participants. The presentation can be found here.
Ms. Ursula Hoffmann, Roedl & Partner gave her input on “Investing in Renewable Energies in India – Overview of the Legal Framework”.  The presentation can be found here.
IGEF-SO presented attractive niche markets for photovoltaics, wind and battery storage to the participants. Especially the commercial sector with a high penetration rate of diesel gensets was identified as becoming more and more attractive. As per recent estimates more than 120 GW of diesel gensets are being installed in India presently. Solar and battery technology may replace these gensets almost entirely within just 10 to 15 years. The presentation can be found here.
Additionally, amongst others, further support programmes such as the Energy Export Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) were presented.
