- Mr. Pankaj Batra, Central Electricity Authority, India:
"International experts from power utilities (MISO, Xcel Energy, Energinet, etc.) system operators (ERCOT, 50 Hertz, ENTSO, etc.) technical institutions (NREL, LBNL, IEA, IRENA, etc.) regulators (NARUC) and private organisations (GE, AWS, Truepower, Siemens, etc.) from the US, Germany and other European countries shared their project experiences, innovative ideas, and results from ongoing research.
The result was dissemination of an ocean of knowledge for all the participants, who attended the Conference. The discussions and interactions that took place during the Conference informally and during the breaks, specially helped me, as well as, I am sure, those who were present.
I compliment USAID, GIZ and Energynautics for holding this Conference and urge them to continue holding such conferences, for the larger benefit of all the countries in the world."
- Dr. Bernhard Ernst, Fraunhofer IWES, Kassel/Germany:
"It was a pleasure and a very interesting and well organized conference."
- Dr. Hans Peter Waldl, Overspeed GmbH, Oldenburg/Germany:
"The programme of this workshop has been surprisingly broad, from Indian researchers to experts from literally all over the world. It gave me an excellent insight into the challenges of the ambitious Indian renewable energy plans and how to cope with them. Looking forward to attend the follow-up workshop!"
- Prof. Zakir Hussain Rather, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai/India:
"The conference was indeed a first of its kind in India, which brought together learned national and international experts from both the research and the industry community, who shared their quality experience on various aspects of renewable energy integration. I was personally very impressed by the quality of the work presented by brilliant minds from around the world. The organisers did an exceptionally good job, and it will be great to see the conference is organised regularly in India in the future."
- Ms. Anasuya Gangopadhyay, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore/India:
"The 1st International Conference on Large-Scale Grid Integration of Renewable Energy in India facilitated interaction among international experts and Indian stakeholders where joint discussions were held on the latest technological, regulatory and conceptual developments in this field. The benefits were two fold. The conference helped me to get a panoramic view of the renewable energy sector in India, starting from generation to consumption. Secondly, it helped me to update myself with the cutting edge developments happening in this domain all over the world."
- Ms. Sahana Lokesh, Teri University, New Delhi/India:
"It was indeed a great learning experience. We were truly in awe to meet all the experts. We would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude to you for giving us the opportunity."
