To discuss and evaluate the criteria that Indian companies need to fulfil in order to break into the market in the Middle East and position themselves as the right partner for upcoming solar projects, PV Insider are organising a complimentary webinar, ‘Exporting Indian solar expertise abroad’. The 60-minute webinar is taking place on Tuesday 1st July at 3pm India time/1.30pm United Arab Emirates time/11.30am Central European time.
During the webinar, representatives from Larsen & Toubro (India), who have bid on large scale solar projects in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates and Jyoti Structures Ltd (India) who have a manufacturing plant for solar components in the UAE will discuss their experiences of working in the solar industry in the Middle East, such as the difficulties faced entering a new market and how they overcame them.
Masdar, the local Middle Eastern developer of the Shams 1 100MW CSP plant in Dubai, will discuss the criteria that an international company need to fulfill in order to be considered as potential partners for upcoming solar projects in the Middle East.
PV Insider’s industry feedback suggests that there are huge opportunities for Indian companies to enter the key solar markets in the Middle East, such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. In the region, there are companies with the capital investment and local knowledge on the legal and financial requirements, but are lacking in the expertise of solar power projects. Therefore, they require international partners who can support them in developing and operating solar power plants.
Although many international companies are turning their attention to the region, Indian companies have the benefit of being geographically closer, over 2GW of experience gained in developing and operating solar projects in India with very limited international influence and cheap labour force to offer, amongst other factors.
