NZ Companies show their renewable energy expertise in India

23 September 2015: Minister Adams is leading 10 New Zealand companies who are attending the ninth Renewable Energy India Expo in New Delhi, India.

“India is our tenth largest export destination with two-way trade in goods and services totaling USD$1.2 billion in the year to June 2015. India is also our sixth largest market for service exporters and there are growing opportunities for innovative technology suppliers,” says Minister Adams.

New Zealand plans to raise its renewable energy generating capability from 80 to 90 percent by 2025 and could provide India’s fast growing renewable energy sector a definite boost with innovative assistance and advanced technologies. This could help the Indian Government improve the environment to support sustainable growth. New Zealand is at the forefront of developing technologies that not only harness renewable materials but also reduce emissions and waste, which can nurture the Indian Government’s 'Clean India' initiative.

New Zealand Trade and Enterprise is working with ETI Dynamics to support these ten New Zealand companies establish their brand in the Indian market. ETI Dynamics is a multinational technology accelerator, infrastructure developer and investor focused on sustainable development.

“The fact that this is the fourth industry interaction between India and New Zealand in under a year is a testimony to the collaboration potential both nations have to further their sustainable development agenda. We at ETI Dynamics see in New Zealand both an investment destination for sustainability projects using public-private partnership models as well as a source of some amazing technologies toaddress the climate change and environmental problems,” says Sanmit Ahuja, CEO of ETI Dynamics.

Dr Mike Allen, Special Envoy for Renewable Energy and Executive Director of Geothermal New Zealand said he was delighted to be part of the New Zealand cleantech delegation, and strongly supports the development of business ties between New Zealand and India.

“The delegation includes a number of key companies involved in the renewable and clean technology industries in New Zealand. This is a chance to understand the status of these markets in India and identify potential partnerships and specific business opportunities, which will be of considerable value to us all,” says Dr Allen.

The New Zealand trade delegation includes Astrolab, CarbonScape, Solar Bright, Pacific Rubber Recycling, Environmental Management Services, ESG Asia Pacific, Windflow Technology Ltd, Gallagher Fuel Systems, Greenhouse Capital, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development, and Callaghan Innovation.
