Innovations led by start-ups in clean energy and emerging technologies would support the transformation of Indian businesses and create a road map towards sustainable development, said Chintan Vaishnav, Mission Director, Atal Innovation Mission.

Delivering his keynote address during a session on start-ups, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), as part of the CII Virtual Factory and Plant Expo, he said start-ups can be an effective collaborative partner towards creating a new future for the manufacturing sector.

Lakshmi Santhanam, co-founder of Renkube Pvt Ltd, said India had a huge potential for generating solar energy as it had indigenous technology and an enabling policy framework.
