Bengaluru: A delegation of 15 Swiss researchers and startup entrepreneurs presented sustainable solutions to explore collaborations with the Indian clean energy market.

Swissnex India, the Swiss global network to promote education, research and innovation collaboration, has launched Cleantech Week India 2018.


The delegation will participate in a series of business and technology workshops, industry trade shows and multiple site visits to see the Indian renewable energy ecosystem first hand.

Accompanying the group, Mr Phillip Müller, Head of Cleantech, Swiss Federal Office of Energy, said, “Our government has a clear charter on making Swiss clean energy technology accessible and adaptable across the world. We see India as a market with policy, price and scale challenges, but also a tremendous potential.”

The programme began with a site visit to the country's largest airport rooftop solar project at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).

A major highlight was the meeting with Bescom officials to discuss challenges and collaboration opportunities for state smart-grids and e-vehicle policy and technical innovation projects in the state.

The event also marked the launch of the Swiss Business Hub (SBH) Cleantech Sector in India report with a special focus on solar energy, e-mobility and energy storage.

CEO, Swissnex India and Consul General of Switzerland Sebastien Hug stated that India's traction and growth in the energy market makes it ripe for innovation and technology disruption.

“It is our mission to enable the outreach and active engagement and international exchange of knowledge and talent. The business collaboration and research potential with Indian partners is apparent right from the start and we are hoping for a productive week ahead,” he added.
