Mumbai, November 19, 2010. In 2010 the Intersolar India Conference will take place from December 13-15 at the Leela Kempinski Mumbai, one day prior to the exhibition Intersolar India which starts on the 14th of Dec - 16th Dec at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. Intersolar expects up to 700 attendees from around the world to attend the comprehensive conference tracks.
In January 2010, the Indian government launched the ambitious Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission designed to facilitate the combined deployment of 20 Gigawatts (GW) by 2022. In addition to India's National Solar Mission, more than 8 states e.g. Rajasthan, Punjab, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, West Bengal, etc. have introduced support policies based on Feed-in-Tariffs and other incentives, in order to actively promote the deployment of solar applications. The govt. of Gujarat aims to have 350 MW installed by 2011 offering a feed-in-tariff of USD 0.30/kWh and USD 0.10/kWh for 12 and 13 years respectively. This venture provides ample opportunities and challenges for stakeholders such as manufacturers, entrepreneurs and financers. Against this background the Intersolar India Conference will take place from December 13-15 at the Leela Kempinski Mumbai, one day prior to the exhibition Intersolar India which starts on the 14th of Dec - 16th Dec at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. Intersolar expects up to 700 attendees from around the world to attend the comprehensive conference tracks.
Intersolar India Conference will present the most relevant and timely topics across all aspects of the solar industry in order to best facilitate an exchange of knowledge and provide vital information on the state of the industry.
Attendees can expect a world class program with in-depth analysis of the current solar industry as well as the ideal platform for interacting and networking with leading international industry experts and decision makers.
The conference is about to feature more than 70 speakers who will present at over 15 conference tracks. The principal conference tracks will cover aspects related to innovative technologies, market developments, policy & finance concerning both photovoltaic and solar thermal applications.
The conference programme will also have individual conference sessions which shall provide insights in to the following topics:
•National Solar Mission of India from both an on-grid and off-grid perspective,
•the Development of Global Markets,
•innovative prospects about wafer-based crystalline and thin-film technologies,
•practical experience with large-scale PV systems, BoS applications,
•quality issues during project development and framework conditions for project finance.
In addition, further sessions will focus on the solar thermal development in selected markets, and the status of solar thermal technologies covering as well CST/CSP applications.
