0930 – 1030        INAUGURAL SESSION: INDIA’S WIND VISION 2032

1115 – 1215        PANEL I: MAKE IN INDIA: THE GLOBAL MANUFACTURING UNIT
India's wind industry is championing the Government's 'Make in India' initiative with over 75% localization and has major potential to scale up to a global manufacturing hub. India has 45 world-class manufacturing units of domestic and international players, with 60 models and investment of INR 25,000 crore (USD 3.5 billion). 16 R&D centres serve as catalysts for indigenous innovation, while 4000+ small and medium enterprises (SMEs) produce turbine components and provide large scale employment. This session will discuss policy and regulatory support needed to drive skilling, innovation, investment and market expansion for India's wind manufacturing

1215 – 1315        PANEL II: THE NEXT FRONTIER: OFFSHORE WIND IN INDIA
The Government of India intends to add 30GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030 and has identified Gujarat and Tamil Nadu as potential sites. This panel will discuss sectoral outlook, central and state policy rationale, tariff drivers, prospects for investment, resource characterization, grid integration, operation and maintenance of transmission infra, project development, manufacturing and supply chain management.

1415 – 1515        PANEL III: MONEY TALK: FINANCING THE WINDS OF CHANGE
India's renewables sector faces financing challenges such as short loan tenors, high capital costs and inadequate debt financing, as well as sector-specific concerns: low return on equity; payment delays by DISCOMs; insufficiency of preferential tariffs in many states to meet debt obligations even with structured repayment; mismatch in actual and estimated generation of IPPs which exposes lenders to repayment risk, and a need for rationalized prices. This session will explore solutions to create a favorable investment climate and bring in innovative financing.

1515 – 1615        PANEL IV: MIX ‘N MATCH: SOLAR-WIND HYBRID SYSTEMS
Solar-wind hybrid systems offer efficient land use, reduced cost of power evacuation and transmission, better inverter efficiency, and an improved power generation profile. Many existing solar PV plants and wind farms have scope for hybridization, and clubbed with battery storage, may be the ideal solution to ensure uninterrupted power supply, especially in remote regions. This session will examine issues and challenges, and showcase promising technologies, business models and noteworthy hybrid projects.

1900 – 2030        CXO CONCLAVE
Closed-door conversation with key policymakers and 30 chief executives from the global wind industry to understand the perspectives of leading players from the private sector and create a further enabling environment by addressing challenges and offering incentives. By invitation only.
