Snapshot of the conference highlights:

  • Closing Keynote by Harish Hande (SELCO): Harish gave some powerful and critical input at the end of the conference on the view of the BoP as a market of a size of 5trillion, but importantly with a non-expendable income. He inspired the audience to go beyond and away from looking at the 1.5b poor without electricity as a great market but to leave expectations behind and create hands-on business models. The keynote speech is uploaded in full length on energypedia +link, please find it here. [12]
  •  Keynotes, Sessions: Introduction remarks by Leena Srivastava, her points being taken up by many during the break-out sessions – the question on why decentralized energy supply has such a primary focus on rural areas while being the most difficult and vulnerable areas to create a market in. She leaves the audience with the question on whether it would make more sense to conduct the de-risking in urban areas and then take that knowledge and experience into rural areas, and to leverage the potential for leapfrogging.
