7th Renewable Energy India 2013 Expo sets benchmark as Asia’s largest RE show
Organised by UBM India, the 7th Renewable Energy India 2013 Expo was the epicentre for deliberations on the main streaming energy of renewable in India. Held from the 12th – 14th September 2013 at the India Expo Centre & Mart, Greater Noida (National Capital Region of Delhi), the event urged the industry to step up innovations and leverage on the multiple
investment opportunities being created by the Indian government. The expo played a catalyst role for local and global stakeholders to explore exciting business opportunities. Evolving the format of the expo to the changing dynamics of the industry, a unique approach
was adopted to promote financing of India’s RE sector. Dedicated interactive panels served as a hub for knowledge exchange and widened the market’s insights on innovations, sustainable financing models, cutting-edge technologies and leading business practices.
