India Energy Storage Week (IESW) 2020 to accelerate EV manufacturing & advanced energy storage
New Delhi, Oct 20 (KNN) With a vision to further accelerate the growth in the energy and e-mobility sector, India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), India’s leading alliance on energy storage & e-mobility is all set to host its annual virtual conference and exhibition - India Energy Storage Week from 3rd - 6th November along with Pre – Conference Workshops on November 02, 2020.
With the view, to facilitate international trade, the eighth edition of IESA annual conference is expected to see global partnerships from 20+ countries, 50+ regulators & policy makers, 300+ industry leaders, 100+ partners & exhibitors, and 1000+ delegates.
The conference is a dedicated effort towards bringing the key stakeholders together to make India a global hub for R&D and manufacturing. The vision is backed by eminent dignitaries from NITI Aayog, Department of Science & Technology (DST), The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and many more.
The conference stands to bring global expertise under one roof through the virtual event. The 5-day-long event will feature thought-igniting sessions on ‘Make in India, Global EV manufacturing ecosystem, Regulatory and policy on electric mobility, Skill Development and capacity building and many more’. With the recent developments related to COVID19 and government announcement of energy storage manufacturing as a new Champion Sector, IESW 2020 garners more significance this year.
Two parallel energy storage workshop tracks will allow delegates to learn from hands-on experience of industry leaders and will provide in-depth understanding of advanced technologies and solutions.
Debi Prasad Dash, Executive Director, IESA said, “A proposal drafted by NITI Aayog said India could slash its oil import bills by as much as $40 billion by 2030 if electric vehicles were widely adopted. Though there has been a consistent focus on reducing oil dependence and cutting down on pollution, it can only be materialized when there are enough investments in manufacturing and infrastructure such as charging stations.”
“Through IESW, we aim to address the challenges and opportunities in the sector in order to robust the growth by bringing together global leaders and stakeholders to uncover the possibilities of making India a global hub of EV manufacturing in time to come.” he further added.
As part of the 5-day-long event, IESA will host Energy Storage Innovation workshop on 2nd Nov in association with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for startups in the energy storage, e-mobility, clean energy, and clean transportation sectors and a global startup outreach program during the Investor Summit on 6th November in association with TiE global, New Energy Nexus, Startup India, MeitY start up hub and VJTI- TBI.
