Speaking at the event Vijay Mittal, Joint Secretary, DHI, Ministry of Heavy Industries said, “When it comes to E-mobility and heavy industry, budgets and finances are the primary concern. It is my honour to tell you that at ACC we have seen an evident budget increase in this sector. With time, I have seen a consistent rise in the financial support for this sector because the Government of India wants to prioritise the growth of a self-sufficient energy ecosystem. Budget allocations grew by 3x in 2022 which is 3,000 crores and in the current financial year, it again grew up to 2X. So, I can happily say that the Ministry of Heavy Industries and the Government of India have seen the potential of this sector, analysed the need for it and have provided the growth in the budget by 6x.”

“The year 2024 will be a marquee year for the advanced energy storage industry in India. With a strong and robust growth of both eMobility and stationery market now the entire industry is looking for the start of the Advanced Chemistry Cell production in India which is going to kick start in coming months.

This also presents a wonderful opportunity for us to invest in developing a complete supply chain and recycling industry around the upcoming gigafactories not just for India but also for all the countries that are looking to diversify energy storage and eMobility supply chain for ensuring energy security and meeting ambitious climate goals in coming decade. IESW 2024 will bring together companies across the energy storage, eMobility and green hydrogen ecosystem on a single platform along with government ministries and country partners platform for making India a global hub for advanced energy storage ecosystem.”, said Dr Rahul Walawalkar, President, India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA).
