An Indian electrical exhibition has reached out to particularly invite the Thai power industry to this year’s annual exhibition in Delhi, highlighting the trade opportunities in electricity-associated industries for both countries.

“Thailand will need to invest significantly in its energy system over the coming two decades as it has set a new renewable energy target of 30 per cent of total final energy consumption by 2036,” said Harish Agarwal, vice president of the Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (IEEMA), which organises Elecrama 2018, one of the world’s largest electrical exhibitions. 

“The Thai government has long recognised the importance of alternative, especially renewable, energy sources and the need to introduce programmes in support of renewable energy development and deployment,” he said on a recent trip to Bangkok sponsored by the Indian government.

“Additional efforts are being made for strengthening and expanding transmission infrastructure.”

Elecrama 2018 will cover the entire spectrum of electricity including generation, transmission, distribution, power electronics, renewables, electric transportation, power storage and automation.

It will be held in India March 10-14 20 at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Delhi.
