Welcome to New Delhi!

The 2nd International Conference on Large-Scale Grid Integration of Renewable Energy in India is organized by:

  • United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
  • Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
  • Department for International Development, United Kingdom
  • Energynautics, Germany

The Government of India has set the very ambitious goal to install 175 GW of renewable energy generation capacity by 2022. Grid integration thus becomes a very critical challenge to successfully accomplish this target. This international conference aims to connect international experts and Indian stakeholders to jointly discuss the latest technological, regulatory and conceptual developments in this field.
