Talking about the unique start-up challenge, Mr. Amit Jain, CEO and Co-founder Car Dekho, said, “I am grateful to IEEMA for inviting me to the global flagship event weve all come to know as ELECRAMA 2023. And, Im honoured to be part of the Electraverse Spark awards ceremony which has paved the way for budding start-ups to showcase their abilities and interact with the industry. In the coming years, as the economy continues to grow, the energy sector, too, will witness exponential growth. With the world embracing smarter ways of living, we need innovation to find new ways of energy. Thats why we need to nurture the start-up ecosystem in India and foster learning among the upcoming businesses focussing on energy. I am grateful for IEEMA and ELECRAMA for taking such a pivotal step in that direction through this unique competition.”
Mr. Sonam Wangchuk, Innovator and Educationist, said, “It’s a greater accomplishment to conquer one desire than to fulfil a thousand desires. Thus, I would like to congratulate all the exhibitors and the winners whose willingness to conquer their respective desires brought them to ELECRAMA 2023. Its great to see IEEMA supporting the progress and growth in the energy sector. Today, the fight towards developing new technologies and harnessing its power to enhance industry operations has become a major battle. As the world strives towards creating a sustainable future, the need to minimise the use of resources and conserve energy has become imperative. Thus, we must keep innovating, growing and, in turn, continue to find solutions for future challenges. With such crucial platforms like ELECRAMA 2023 and Electraverse Spark competition, we can support new ideas and innovation to collectively make a difference. Before signing off, I would like to leave you all with a thought – don’t scold your children for forgetting their lessons, make their lessons unforgettable.”
Mr. Rohit Pathak, President of IEEMA, said, “ELECRAMA 2023 has been an amazing journey for us all. I would like to thank IEEMA and the ELECRAMA management team for their meticulous efforts that made this years edition memorable. This century belongs to India, but we are committed to grow in a responsible and sustainable manner. We will develop our own solutions to serve our energy needs and take those to the world. I urge companies to focus on 4 areas – Think Solutions & Services, Integrate startups into your R&D, Build Circularity in your designs, and Push on Demand Side Efficiency opportunities. The 15th edition of ELECRAMA has given us a lot to ponder in terms of new ideas and challenges to innovate great things.
