Contribute to sustainable development in India and Sri Lanka

Do you work in the renewable energy industry? Did you attend our information session on opportunities in the sector in India and Sri Lanka? Now, we invite you to take the plunge and meet industry experts on the ground, from 22 to 27 April!

As we explained at our information session, while India and Sri Lanka have green energy to resell, they do not yet possess the technology to optimise its storage. Though the wind blows and the sun shines in these countries, the distribution network is limited.

From Colombo to RenewX in Hyderybad

Take flight with us and meet the local authorities responsible for renewable energy schemes, as well as projects financed by the Asian Development Bank! We will end the trip with a stop in Hyderabad, where RenewX takes place. This trade fair, specialising in renewable energies, represents an opportunity to meet local partners, especially at our pavilion, where you will have the chance to share the potential of your business during a conference.

Register by 19 March!
