January 6th to 9th, Smart Innovation Norway will be a part of the India-Norway Business Summit 2019 in New Delhi, where the company is responsible for the seminar “Smarter Grids and storage in emerging energy ecosystem – Leveraging Norwegian expertise”, alongside Innovation Norway and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. So far, 170 participants have signed up forthe seminar.
“The Norwegian Prime Minister, Mrs. Erna Solberg, visits India in an official state visit from the 6th through the 8th of January 2019, together with a Norwegian business and industry delegation from sectors like renewable energy, smart grids, shipping, seafood, and more,” explains Dieter Hirdes, Head of Research & Innovation at Smart Innovation Norway.
The goal of the state visit is to further develop Norwegian-Indian business cooperation.
Sharing INVADE experiences
Hirdes is one of the speakers at the Smart Grid seminar, one of the parallel seminars during the two-day business summit, which will be held on Monday the 7th of January at 1.30 pm. – 4.30 pm. So far, 170 participants have signed up for the seminar.
Smart Innovation Norway Senior Researcher, Sanket Puranik, will also attend at the event. Puranik will present his company’s two large EU Horizon 2020 projects, INVADE and E-LAND, as well as encouraging collaboration with Indian partners.
Visit with great opportunities
“Smart Innovation Norway wants to extend its research and innovation cooperation with Indian research organizations and energy companies in projects like E-LAND, where two major Indian energy companies from Delhi and Mumbai participate,” notes Hirdes. He adds:
“We also cooperate with Indian energy companies in capacity building in the fields of SmartGrids, Smart Energy Systems and Digitalization, and the visit of the Norwegian Prime Minister, Mrs. Erna Solberg, is an excellent opportunity to meet new contacts from Indian industry and academia.”
Smart Innovation Norway’s cooperation with Indian companies and research institutes started by signing a Memorandum of Understanding agreement with POWERGRID, India’s largest electricity grid operator, in 2016.
“With great help of Innovation Norway in Delhi, our cooperation with India has developed in a very positive way, and we are convinced that India and Norway will profit from a close cooperation in the area of future smart and sustainable energy systems,” says Hirdes.
