First for Cleantech – live link with New Delhi explores energy from waste


Cambridge Cleantech is undertaking the ‘first’ event of its kind next Tuesday (June 10th), by linking consecutive speakers in a live link-up between Cambridge and New Delhi to explore the issue of energy from waste and recycling. To celebrate after the event at The Future Business Centre, Cambridge, speakers and delegates will be able to tuck in to an Indian buffet feast.

The hot topics which are important for India and in which Cambridge-based cleantech companies can help supply the solutions are recycling and energy from waste.

Martin Garratt, CEO of Cambridge Cleantech comments that: “We are delighted to be testing this new event concept of livestreaming speakers from Cambridge and New Delhi to the delegates at venues in both locations.  Following the speakers, who will outline market opportunities in India and examples of cleantech solutions, we will have a lively Q&A between delegates from both countries, live across the airwaves.

"The event provides a real opportunity to understand the Indian market and consider how to propose potential solutions. Delegates will even enjoy an Indian buffet lunch to celebrate the link-up.”

Monish Verma, Environment Sector Specialist, EBTC (the EU funded organisation tasked with enhancing EU-India collaboration in clean technologies) in New Delhi, comments that “a viable collaboration between EU and India can only begin by understanding the real problems in the field and positing a solution based on local needs, that is in effect, by promoting bottom-up project development. This live streaming event is the first step for both EU and India communities to understand each other’s attributes and then develop collaborations.”
