Roundtable on Energy Storage and Photovoltaics

During Parliamentary State Secretary Stefan Wenzel’s (BMWK) visit to India, the Indo-German Energy Forum (IGEF-SO) partnered with the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce (IGCC), hosted a focused roundtable on energy storage and photovoltaics in Delhi on 24 July. Accompanied by the official BMWK delegation, Secretary Wenzel engaged with high-ranking officials from companies and associations such as Fluence, IBC Solar and Fraunhofer India.

The Roundtable aimed to discuss the development of value chains for photovoltaics (PV) system and battery storage, while also addressing the opportunities and obstacles faced by German companies in India. As a result of the discussions, a dedicated task force will be set up to foster greater exchange between the two countries. This initiative will include both public and private sector representatives to ensure a comprehensive understanding of all relevant perspectives.

The discussion focused on two key areas:  increasing India's manufacturing capabilities and establishing new manufacturing facilities for PV and energy storage solutions.
