The global conference on 'Digital Transformation in Energy' will bring together entrepreneurs, leaders and pioneers of cutting-edge technology adoption in the clean energy sector on a common platform.

This marks the beginning of a series of forums to discuss trends, focus areas and ways to advance industry-academia-public sector collaboration while bringing inspirational stories from clean energy entrepreneurs. As we take major strides to build the Centre for Clean Energy at Plaksha, we envision that these exchanges will further evolve as a powerful feedback loop to align the academic programs and research with the real-world challenges of the sector.
