EnVision: Energy festival driving industry-academia led technology transformation towards net-zero emissions in India


India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), India’s leading industry alliance focused on accelerating adoption of energy storage, e-mobility, green hydrogen & microgrids in India in partnership with IIT Madras Research Park (IITMRP) are organizing “EnVision”, India’s First Energy Festival from November 3rd- 5th, 2022 at IITMRP, Chennai.

The event will be inaugurated by Dr. N Kalaiselvi (Director General, CSIR – Central Electro Chemical Research Institute (CSIR-CECRI), Dr. Ajay Mathur ( Director General, International Solar Alliance) and Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala (President- IITMRP, IITMIC & RTBI).

It will be an industry-academia event and features seminars, panel discussions, student led project demonstrations and activities surrounding the discourse “Towards Net-Zero”. The conference will be witnessed by CXOs, Industry members, government dignitaries, and institutional bodies who will be a part of this energy festival.

Earlier this year, IESA signed an MoU with IITMRP for accelerating Industry Academia collaborations. The 3-day conference explores 10+ thematic areas over the course of the conference following the larger theme of techno-economic readiness of Renewable Energy technologies and their estimated commercialization timelines. Day one of the conference will focus on technologies immediately available to commercialise, the second day is for technologies which can be scaled in 5 to 10 years and the third day will be on technologies, which require major R&D today, so that they can scale in 10 to
15 years.

EnVision will be a one-stop summit to discuss various burning issues to craft the future of cleantech in India through 15+ expert talks and 6+ panel discussions. As a participant, one will witness thoughtprovoking dialogue and discourse ranging across topics from Renewable energy generation: Technology and economics, short duration grid storage: Batteries, thermal storage systems to Enhancing energy efficiency: Heating and Cooling, Electric Vehicles, Green Hydrogen generation and more.

EnVision will feature expert talks by over 25+ top energy voices from industry & academia including; Milind Kulkarni (President – PV Manufacturing, Reliance New Energy Solar); Sujoy Ghosh (Vice President & Country Managing Director India, First Solar); Dr. R. Gopalan (Reg Director, International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials); Ravi Chandran Purushothaman (President, Danfoss India); Akshay Singhal (Chief of Climate Action, Log9), Randheer Singh (Director – Electric Mobility and ACC Program, NITI Aayog), Shaji John (Sr. VP, Ohmium); Dr. Anuradda Ganesh (Chief Technical Advisor, Cummins Technologies); Dr. A.K. Nayak (Principle Scientist, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre); Alexander Hogeveen Rutter (Private Sector Specialist, International Solar Alliance) and many more.
