The event is scheduled for March 1, 2024


Mercom India is set to host its second event in the ‘C&I Clean Energy Meet 2024‘ series in Uttar Pradesh’s capital city, Lucknow, on March 1, 2024.

The Lucknow event titled ‘Green Energy Business Conclave’ will be co-hosted by the Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) and the Indian Industries Association (IIA).

Lucknow boasts the second-largest concentration of businesses in the state, emerging as a prominent hub for industry and logistics in Northern India. It is home to information technology, chemicals, machine tools, furniture, agro-based, and textile industries.

The state government aims to transition the region’s industries to solar, providing a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option.

Uttar Pradesh, the largest state in India, is undergoing a shift from primarily relying on agriculture to emerging as a flourishing industrial center. The state’s recent efforts in the industrial sector have resulted in a surge in the demand for power.

Due to its attractive incentive package, Uttar Pradesh has become increasingly appealing to solar open access developers and consumers, garnering heightened interest in the region.

The event aims to bring together large power consumers in the commercial & industry segment and clean energy solution providers to discuss the transition process and options.

The second panel discussion will explore “Clean Power Purchase- Switching to Renewable Energy through Open Access and Maximizing ROI,” featuring Deepika Mathur from Ampyr Energy, Arvind Datt Semwal from Adani Solar, and Prabhajit Kumar Sarkar, Founder and CEO of Ampera Energy.

Following the two discussions, Deye Inverter will present a case study to discuss the market realities and present state policy dynamics to the audience.

This will be followed by a session on “Attractive Financing Options – Easy and Affordable Green Loans” with financial experts, including Vikas Agarwal, Co-founder and CBO of Credit Fair, and Avinash Dwivedi, Deputy Zonal Head Lucknow at IDBI Bank.

The event will conclude with a session on bioenergy and biocoal conducted by IIA.

The event will facilitate discussions about the cost benefits of solar, challenges, opportunities, and solutions, providing insights into the evolving energy market and aiding a seamless transition towards clean energy amidst technological and financial challenges.
