Strong partners for the energy transition in India: HUSUM Wind and Intersolar are forming a strategic partnership. From October 19-21, 2016, the internationally renowned exhibition for wind energy will be represented with a special area at India’s largest exhibition and conference for the solar industry in Mumbai. The special area combines the organizers’ expertise for the Indian market. India has huge potential for renewable energy, and the Indian government has set ambitious targets for the expansion of wind and solar energy in the years ahead.
The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, has declared energy a top priority, and the industry is gathering momentum. Renewable energy, most notably photovoltaics und wind power, is a cornerstone of the expansion, with both forms of energy seeing significant growth in recent years. 2,623 megawatts (MW) of wind energy were deployed in 2015, and experts predict an annual investment of around 16.5 billion US Dollars by 2020. The figures for the solar industry, which grew by 1.4 gigawatts (GW) in 2015, look just as impressive. An additional 4-6 GW of capacity are projected for 2016, which would put India in 4th place among the world's top solar markets. Given its high level of solar irradiation, abundant open spaces and steadily growing energy needs, India is considered one of the most attractive sites for solar energy.
The expansion targets for wind energy are just as ambitious, with the goal of adding 4.1 GW within the same time period. Many Indian companies are taking advantage of this dynamic growth and are active in both markets, offering products, solutions and services for wind power sites and photovoltaics. These are perfect conditions for the newly established cooperation between Intersolar India and HUSUM Wind.
Shared booth and conference day on the topic of wind energy
Around 230 exhibitors and over 11,000 visitors are expected to attend Intersolar India in the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai, from October 19-21, 2016. HUSUM Wind will be represented with a shared booth. On one day of the specialist conference, visitors will also have the opportunity to discuss different aspects of wind energy with international experts. In addition, a delegate tour with notable representatives from politics and industry is scheduled. HUSUM Wind has been the meeting place and shop window of the wind industry for over 25 years, and since 2015 it has focused on the technologically leading German wind market.
HUSUM Wind is now also organizing a delegation trip to find out about the Indian wind market, which includes a joint exhibition stand and conference program.
