IESA members will get a chance to be part of B2B meetings and access the deal room so as to explore newer partnership avenues. Three parallel energy storage workshops will allow delegates to get hands on experience on various technicalities and will provide in-depth understanding of advanced technologies and solutions.

Addressing the significance of ESI 2019 in driving India’s renewable energy, electric vehicles and energy storage mission, Dr Rahul Walawalkar, Founder & Executive Director, India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA) said, “During 2018, IESA was successful in shaping the vision of making India a global hub for R&D manufacturing of advanced energy storage and EVs. The year 2019 is going to be a landmark in energy storage as we expect National Energy Storage Mission to be announced soon as announced by the Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji on October 2, 2018. We are confident that ESI 2019 will become a gala platform for exploring newer avenues, thought exchange and developing effective roadmaps for advanced energy storage technologies. During ESI 2019, we look forward to forging stronger relationships with various stakeholders for addressing the growing needs of India’s electric grid and electric transportation sector.”
