In the past decade, CSE has emerged as a prominent player in renewable energy policy advocacy nationally and has expanded internationally to various Asian and African countries. The objective is to promote sustainable energy practices under a South-South Cooperation initiative for renewable energy development, and for controlling emissions from coal-based power plants.
