100% renewable energy future for North-East

Like the rest of the country, the north eastern region is dominated by fossil fuels when it comes to electricity generation. Even with an installed capacity of 3.5 giga-watts, the fact is that there is still a shortage of 5.1 per cent of electricity for the people in this region. This figure however does not include the millions of people who do not have access to electricity in the country. 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organizing a two-day conference “100% renewable energy future for North-East” highlighting the issues and challenges in transforming the north-east part of the country for cleaner and renewable energy future. The conference would address the current scenario of electricity and energy mix in the states and explain the need to transition to a renewable energy based decentralised distributed system. 

CSE would be presenting their vision of decentralised distributed system with our emphasis on renewable energy based mini-grids and solar rooftop in rural and urban context. We invite all stakeholders to join the conversation and contribute to energy transformation of the region.
