According to reports, an important Canadian delegation comprising representatives of innovative companies engaged in the production of renewable energy will participate in the forthcoming 5th Renewable Energy India 2011 Expo to be held in New Delhi on August 10, 2011.
The delegation will also participate in the Canada-India Seminar on Renewable Energy being organised by the High Commission of Canada on the margins of the Expo. The session will provide Canadian companies an opportunity to present their capabilities to representatives of the Government of India and Indian companies.
Welcoming the Canadian delegation to India, the High Commissioner of Canada to India, Mr. Stewart Beck, said: “This is a great opportunity for Canadian and Indian companies to learn about each other’s strengths and requirements and explore opportunities for collaboration. Canada is well placed to partner with India in the renewable energy sector because of its large scale investments in research and development in this field. We look forward to collaborate with India to promote renewable energy and contribute to a cleaner environment and an energy-secure future.”
The Canadian delegation comprises solar, wind and bio-energy companies. The objective of the mission is to facilitate research and business partnership opportunities in India for Canadian companies, and showcase their innovative technologies to senior representatives from both the private and public cleantech sector in India.
While in India, the representatives of Canadian companies will participate in business-to-business meetings with key potential partners, a networking reception and business briefings hosted by the High Commission of Canada as well as market briefings on solar, wind and bio-energy business opportunities by key experts in the Indian renewable energy sector.
The establishment of India’s green economy will necessitate an investment of more than $3 billion. Canadian environmental businesses as well as science & technology ventures are ready to partner with India to address this need.
