EAI, India’s leading renewable energy support firm, is organizing a unique meet between EPCs and Developers of solar PV power plants. This is intended to be a facilitating/networking meet for these two key stakeholder segments, especially given that two states (AP and TN) will begin allotting utility scale SPV projects soon. And given that many states in India, including Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Gujarat & Kerala have announced ambitious rooftop plans.

The delegates, about 400 focussed industry professionals comprising project heads, top management and decision makers, will belong to both rooftop solar PV and grid connected solar PV segments.

The one day event will have a one hour presentation, two hour interactive discussion and a five-hour long, focussed networking session that will provide a rare opportunity for solar developers, EPCs, financial investors and other key solar sector stakeholders to interact with many important stakeholders in a professional setting. See details on the Networking Session below.

Detailed Agenda

The goal behind this event is critical intelligence & extensive interactions, to drive critical value for both developers and EPC. The agenda has been derived based on these goals.

Speeches and presentations will be kept to a minimum and networking/interactions is the key agendaThe most important part of this event is the 5-hour long networking session. See below for more details on this.

  • 10 AM – 11.30 AM : Expert Insight Session

We have three detailed expert techno-commercial presentations from technical and operational experts, and two brief business perspective presentations from top management professionals in this session.

Technical expert presentations will be made by the following companies

  • Bihag Mehta from Sgurr Energy will provide insights on the following
    • Technical & operational dos and don’ts for solar power plant developers
    • Importance of due diligence and validation
    • Lessons learnt from Sgurr’s worldwide experiences in implementing solar power plants
  • Udayadittya Shome from Juwi on what can be realistically expected from EPCs
    • Uday will bring forth insights on what developers can realistically expect from EPCs in terms of risk mitigation and performance assurances. This is a critical topic, more so in today’s context where the EPCs are relied upon for pretty much every aspect of the solar power plants owing to the inexperience/lack of awareness in the developer segment.
  • Navratan Kataria from Sterling & Wilson on best practices for a high performance solar power plant
    • Navrataran would like to have as much time as possible answering questions on best of breed practices for solar PV power plants. His inputs and insights will be based on the two decades of experience he has in solar PV as well as the work being done by Sterling & Wilson
  • Business perspectives will be provided by top management from India’s two pioneering solar firms
    • Vivek Chaturvedi,  Chief Marketing Officer, Moser Baer
    • Pashupathy Gopalan, Managing Director, of MEMC’s and Sun Edison’s South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa operations
  • 11:45 AM – 1:00 PM : Interactive session – This session will comprise Q&A in which over 20 different experts will participate, in addition to the speakers.
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM : Networking Lunch – Special Arrangements will be made such that you are able to use the lunch duration networking productively
  • 2:00 PM – 215 PM – Special address by Sudeep Jain, IAS, Chairman & MD, TEDA. He will provide his perspectives on the Tamil Nadu and national solar policies.
  • 2:15 – 6 PM – Customised Networking. This is the core part of the program. Arrangements have been made to ensure that each of you is able to network with as many relevant delegates as possible. The networking sessions will include three modules
    • Networking with specific experts/expert companies pre-identified by EAI
    • Networking with specific professionals based on the profiles of companies available at the registration counter
    • Networking with specific delegates based on delegate identification – each delegate will be provided with an identification placard that will enable others to easily understand what your company does.

6 PM – Conclusion, and we all go home.

About the Experts


Solar Veterans from three reputed Companies

At the Forefront of the Grid-Connected Solar PV movement in India

Share their Expertise at the event



Udayadittya Shome– Vice-President,Juwi Renewable Energy: 10 AM – 1030 AM

Working with a global leader in solar power plant development, Uday brings over 20 years of technical and commercial experience in all the aspects of solar PV power plants. Now, that’s critical experience few in the country have today.

Uday brings a unique confluence of critical expertise in the solar PV field – technical, commercial, certifications/approvals, business development and entrepreneurship.

Bihag Mehta– Manager – Renewable Advisory,SgurrEnergy:1030 AM – 11 AM

Sgurr Energy is a globally respected technical consultant for renewable energy projects. Bihag Mehta and his company bring forth an expertise that is critical for a nascent industry such as solar PV – technical validation and due diligence of all aspects of the solar PV power plants.

Sgurr Energy has assessed over 85 GW of renewable energy developments internationally. When you consider that the worldwide installation of renewable is only about 500 GW, that’s an awesome 20% of the total global installations. Sgurr’s clients include utilities, financiers, EPCs and developers. This diversity of client sectors enables them to provide perspectives based on all these critical sectors.

NavratanKatariya – AVP – Solar EPC,Sterling & Wilson:11 AM – 1130 AM

Working with one of the most respected names in the Indian EPC sector, Navratan has been one of the most sought after experts in the Indian solar sector, mainly for his first-hand knowledge of what works and what does not work for solar PV in India.

Sterling & Wilson is one of the most respected EPCs in India, and for a reason. They are quite selective about their projects, because of their commitment and focus on delivering very high quality – characteristics that are critical for an industry in its early stages.


This is the second such event organized by EAI. The first event, organized on Jan 22, was a big success with over 200 important stakeholders attending the event. The first event was a trial event put together in just seven days, to understand the needs of the stakeholders. The inputs and learning from the first event will be used fully for the second event, making it even more productive and powerful. [/raw]
