The Solar Show Sri Lanka 2018 is pleased to welcome on board The European Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka (ECCSL) as a Supporting Partner. 

Launching on 28-29 November at the Sri Lanka Exhibition and Convention Centre, The Solar Show Sri Lanka 2018 will bring together policymakers, regulators, investors and financiers, leading utilities, power producers, project developers, and renewable energy vendors, with the business owners, homeowners and land developers, both international and local, to discuss and learn about the potential of energy in Sri Lanka.

Sharon Roessen, Managing Director of event organiser Terrapinn said: “Sri Lanka has considerable potential for renewable energy, and has made a great start with its first 100MW of Solar and the Battle for Solar Energy (Soorya Bala Sangramaya). The Solar Show Sri Lanka, taking place on 28-29 November at the SLECC will help the Sri Lankan Government, investors and the industry to continue to drive the renewable energy agenda forward.”

The two-day exhibition and conference hopes to spark interest in the renewable energy industry in Sri Lanka. It also seeks to raise awareness about the variety of renewable energy solutions available for all sectors –power plants and utilities, factories and manufacturing plants, large-scale buildings, and homeowners. 

Some prominent speakers and guests from Sri Lanka include Board of Investment (BOI) Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka Director General Damintha Kumarasinghe, Ranishka Wimalasena of the Asian Development Board and Kings Investments Director Niro Cooke.

Others offer international perspectives on the industry, with Canopy Power (Singapore), 8minutenergy India, The Lantau Group (Hong Kong), and more speaking on topics such as grid stability and on-and off-grid systems, integrating energy storage, and the energy transition process.

Over 1500 industry attendees are expected to visit the show. Aside from the main conference, exhibitors will showcase the latest in energy technologies, ranging from home rooftop solar power systems, energy storage solutions, inverters, hybrid and intelligent systems, and more.
