C&I Clean Energy Meet 2023 in Mumbai to Drive Renewables Adoption

The event will be held in Navi Mumbai on May 18, 2023


Mercom India has returned with the second clean energy meet of its conference series C&I Clean Energy Meet 2023, at Navi Mumbai.

The Meet will continue last year’s good work of bringing commercial and industrial (C&I) consumers and renewable energy specialists together to discuss the benefits of clean energy options and the know-how to derive the most benefit out of them.

The sessions will provide C&I entities with insights into the advantages of incorporating renewable sources into their energy portfolio.

The event will be held at the Hotel Ramada in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, on May 18, 2023.

Considered the financial hub of India, Mumbai houses a significant number of corporations and specialized small and medium enterprises for diamond cutting and computer manufacturing, which have the potential to achieve cost savings by transitioning to solar power.

The sessions running through the day will facilitate discussions on power requirements, cost benefits, challenges, opportunities, and potential solutions in clean energy for the C&I segment.

The sessions will cover topics on clean energy options and technologies, the viability of rooftop solar installations, financing solutions and procuring open access at cheaper rates.

The panelists include Colonel Narendra Verma, COO at CleanMax; Devendra Kumar Raipuria, AGM and RM at State Bank of India; Ankit Rastogi, Head Solar EPC at Panasonic; Anurag Chivilkar, Director and Head – BD at Roofsol Energy; Jay Kumar Gupta, Deputy General Manager at SIDBI; Anand Jain, Founder, and CEO at Aarem; Jaykumar Waghela, Head-BD West Region at Fourth Partner; Saurabh Mehta, Head (BD & Project)  at Mahindra Susten; and Aditya Damani, Founder of Credit Fair.

Various entities, including C&I establishments, large institutions, and residential apartments, actively seek energy sources that are environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and more affordable than grid power tariffs.

Maharashtra has the second-largest operating solar open-access portfolio, contributing 12.4% to the country’s total open-access solar capacity.

Additionally, commercial consumers in Maharashtra pay the highest electricity tariffs in the country, making it an ideal market for solar open access.

Moreover, the Maharashtra Energy Development Agency has implemented a solar subsidy program to support companies in developing the infrastructure for more affordable solar energy. This further enhances the appeal of solar adoption for C&I consumers in Maharashtra.

The event will provide networking opportunities for C&I consumers to engage with solar industry experts and get their questions about the renewable transition answered.

Interested entities can register for the event by sending an email to events@mercomindia.com.

After Mumbai, Mercom will host the next C&I Clean Energy Meet in Pune on June 16.
