The Indian Government has set an ambitious target of 175 GW of Renewable Energy Installed by

2022 (from about 40 GW as of mid-2016). This implies an investment of about $150 billion and creation of over 10 lac jobs in the next 6 years.

With such a large amount of investments and market building, there will be a number of top management and leadership career opportunities emerging during this period.

As the Indian RE and cleantech industry enters the next orbit of growth, there is a growing need for companies to recruit high quality talent for their top management roles. The lack of experienced top management professionals with excellent domain knowledge could slow down and affect an RE organization’s goals to achieve their ambitious goals.

To enable top companies in the Indian RE sector recruit high quality and experienced professionals to drive their strategy and growth, EAI has created an exclusive division for top management recruitment for the renewable energy and clean technology sectors – EAI TopHire.
