The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has postponed the date for the third edition of global Renewable Energy Investors’ (RE-INVEST) meet and expo to be held in the national capital New Delhi. According to the new circular issued by the MNRE, the event will be held from October 31 to November 2, 2019.
The event was earlier slated to be held from 3-5 October 2019.
“All stakeholders in the Renewable Energy domain, i.e., industry, developers, independent power
producers, investors, financing institutions, academia, and research communities are
requested to block their dates and participate in the event,” said the circular.
More details about the event, which is also commonly known as RE-INVEST, are likely to be made available at a later stage.
Last year, the MNRE had postponed the second edition of RE-INVEST 2018 from April to October. It was held from 3-5 October 2018 at Greater Noida. During the same event, the first assembly of International Solar Alliance (ISA) and the second meeting of Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) Renewable Energy Ministers were also hosted.
The ISA is an Indian initiative that was jointly launched by the PM Modi and the president of France on November 30, 2015, in Paris, on the sidelines of COP-21, the UN Climate Conference.
Last year, Mercom had reported on the inauguration of the second edition of Global RE-Invest on October 2, 2018, in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, and Minister of Power R.K. Singh.
Speaking at last year’s inaugural ceremony, PM Modi underpinned the importance of solar by his slogan, ‘One World, One Sun, One Grid.’
