India sets October dates for RE-INVEST

24 July: India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has announced new dates for its 2nd Global RE-INVEST event, which will now be held on 3-5 October this year in Greater Noida.

RE-INVEST aims to showcase India's clean energy market to international investors. The first event in 2015 saw multi-billion dollars worth of memorandums of understanding being signed in the renewable energy space, although many of these – particularly in PV manufacturing – did not come to fruition. The second edition has been announced, delayed and cancelled several times.
