Welcome to PV IndiaTech 2019, the latest addition to PV-Tech’s acclaimed series of bespoke, high-quality, global solar PV events.

The need for a high-quality event held in India, and focusing specifically on key aspects of the domestic PV sector, has been communicated to us at PV-Tech many times in the past few years. As the country moves from 25GW to hundreds of gigawatts over the next decade, there is a growing requirement to ensure that a thriving, internationally-recognized sector develops inside the country.

To make this happen, India relies heavily on the involvement and participation of overseas companies, across the entire PV value-chain, from upstream manufacturing to downstream EPC work and final project asset management. Choosing the correct partners for this is critical, bringing in expertise and funding to the country.

The PV IndiaTech conference will bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.

Attend PV IndiaTech 2019:

  • Understand India’s long-term solar PV competitiveness through investment, foreign company participation & technology innovation through the PV value-chain
  • Outline India’s long-term demand potential: balancing domestic & overseas cell/module supply & production levels
  • How can quality be ensured through the value-chain: what steps need to be implemented within India to provide investors with minimal risk & optimum return-on-investment
  • What needs to happen to transform the Indian upstream sector over the next five years to a 20GW+ cell & module production powerhouse
  • The importance of qualified O&M and asset management practices within existing & future Indian utility solar farm builds
  • Identify global trends in utility-solar construction & their impact on the Indian solar PV sector
