After a gap of two years, the Renewable Energy India expo today returned to the India Expo Center, Greater Noida, at a time when a third Covid wave was expected to arrive in India. However, the current low active cases in Delhi and the neighbouring Uttar Pradesh where the event is taking place (377 and 175 as of September 14, respectively) seemed to have worked for the organizers to go ahead with the event in its usual format within a small period of time.
The Covid impact on the scale of the event is visible. This year, the show reduced to three halls from 11 halls occupied in pre-Covid times. As of the time of writing this article, the number of registrations stood at 14,000.
Yogesh Mudras, managing director of Informa Markets India, cited less international participation and big players going for smaller booths fearing less visitors due to Covid as the reasons for reduced floor scale of the event.
However, the show is keeping the spirts high with major Indian players including Waaree, Vikram Solar, Jakson, Premier Energies, etc having booths at the expo. The organizers have taken appropriate measures to remove the attendee anxiety by following strict Covid protocols, and going by the attendees on the first day (despite the pandemic) the efforts seemed to have paid off!
