developers. In 2017 itself, India is expected to add new solar capacity of 8-10 gW, a growth of 137% over last year, a recent report by Bridge To India, a green energy-focused consultant, indicated.

The government’s ambitious target of adding 175 GW of renewable power in the country by 2022, has created awareness about renewable energy in the country and will offer massive investment opportunities across the value chain. Telangana, since its establishment has been playing an active role in aggressively supporting solar energy. Along with other states in South India that are also promoting renewable energy, the region holds promise for the sector with its profitable and favourable government and industrial policies. The sector in the region has also been benefitted by investments leading to launch of major projects. After our successful 1st edition in 2015, we are all set for the second edition of RenewX in Hyderabad that aims to accelerate the growth of Renewable Energy Industry in South India and contribute to the country’s sustainable economic development.”

10th edition of South Asia’s largest Security event by UBM India

300 Companies, 20+ Countries showcases Smart Security for Emerging India

As part of the world’s leading portfolio of security and fire safety events, the International Fire & Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) India, expo hosted by UBM India, is back once again with its 10th edition of the expo scheduled from 8th – 10th December 2016 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Supported by APSA and ESAI, the expo is the region’s pre-eminent authority on the expertise and guidance of industrial security.

Today, cities across the world are constantly evolving faster than at any point in history. They have become more congested, and criminal activities have soared up, leading to the destruction of public assets. Compounding the problems, terrorism has become a major concern that presents communities and neighbourhoods with new security problems. Faced with a wealth of often elusive challenges, cities are expected to manage and control the change to allow their communities to have a standard of living that meets modern-day expectations.



In the age of smart technology and to match the pace of smart cities, the need for smart security is of utmost significance. The rising need for advanced security, increasing public surveillance, growing IT infrastructure, increasing IT spends, and surging criminal activities have spurred the market for IP Video Surveillance systems in India. From the earlier Analog CCTV technology, there has been a steady technology shift to Internet Protocol (IP) based (digital), open source and fully integrated systems, with the option for remote surveillance, background screening, video analytics, digital video and sensor-based detection. It has hardly surprising then that the fastest growing end-user industry is projected to be city surveillance.

The growing awareness in the retail and enterprise segment too is giving security solutions a cult status. Under these circumstances, IFSEC India will act as catalysts for the progress and vision of the industry, as we provide a platform for industry players to collectively ideate, innovate, and spot trends like the shift in India’s security paradigm from a preventive approach to a monitoring and response strategy. In its tenth edition, IFSEC is proud to feature technologies pertaining to biometrics, transport, access control, in addition to surveillance, for the knowledge of end users and providers.

The demand for video surveillance in India has grown not only in corporate houses but also risen sharply among the RWAs and security agencies as well. The demand for other security systems like Access Control, Biometrics, Alarm Systems, Transport Security, Home Automation, Perimeter Security and Metal Detectors has increased too. The booming demand for these security solutions, falling costs of products & installation coupled with hassle-free installation & portability is making wireless security an instant hit. Against this landscape, IFSEC 2016, South Asia’s largest annual exposition in the security industry, shall showcase some of the finest IP electronic surveillance technologies & architectures to secure our tomorrows.”

“This year, we have also reached an important milestone and achieved a new momentum with the 10th anniversary of our expo which will provide a perfect platform for stakeholders from the security and fire community to come together and address challenges that have acted as speed bumps to this growth.” he further added.
