About us

The Innovations’ Accelerator focuses on the business of renewable energy and energy efficiency. It develops partnerships through its Virtual Meeting Room (VMR), webinars, and online discussion forums. India and Sweden share a common objective on the need for innovation, to build domestic competitiveness, as well to respond to the needs of growing demands in an energy-constrained world.

The Virtual Meeting Room is one way to build much needed bridges towards joint innovation research, development, and deployment, which answer shared needs and are of mutual benefit. As part of the Innovations’ Accelerator, the virtual meeting room caters to a wide spectrum of stakeholders, including business, academia, and researchers. Webinars are held on questions of market integration, challenges to expansion. Information is continuously shared, that specifically targets and facilitates entrepreneurs and innovators as they look to grow their business.

The Accelerator programme is backed by the Swedish Energy Agency. Business Sweden and the Confederation of Indian Industries – Green Business Centre are programme partners. Together, all partners bring with them a strong history of international business development. Programme partners filter interest, develop bridges and build trust. The VMR provides a window to the real-time business ecosystem. It tracks news in the world of technology, policy, academia and the market.
