The expo is in line with the recent announce by PM Modi in which he had reiterated India’s commitment to a more intensive adoption of green energy. The Cabinet has formally approved the updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), in which India has set a goal to reduce the emission intensity of its GDP by 45% by 2030. It will also indicate India’s shift to non-fossil fuel-based energy resources and will source 50% of its cumulative electric power installed capacity from it by 2030. With this decision, India has strengthened its long-term goal to achieve net zero by 2070.
North India including the Delhi-NCR region is well positioned to be a solar power energy hotspot in India. Green energy is at the nub of renewable sector-based policies of the Centre. In fact, recently, the Delhi Airport has ratified to completely move to green energy and has been using hydro and solar power for all its energy needs. With the adoption of this new policy, it became the first airport which facilitates the use of hydro and solar energy for all its operations.
Sharing his views Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India, said, “The REI expo seeks to highlight India’s achievement in the renewable energy sector and provide an opportunity to stakeholders and the public about the initiatives taken by the Indian and off-shore companies to showcase their latest products and innovations.

REI intends to take this further and address the challenges that is confronting the RE sector both in terms of capacity building and acceptance by the masses through cooperation, mutual understanding, and shared interests.”
