The State of Renewable Energy in India 2019 - Book Release & Conference

January 02, 2019

January 21-22, 2019
Gulmohar Hall, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi 

India has fixed itself an ambitious target for creating renewable energy capacity: 175GW by 2022. Currently, renewable energy – mostly solar and wind-based -- comprises 20 per cent of the country’s total installed capacity. The sector has seen a surge in growth in the past, but would this growth be sustainable? Dogged by structural problems in the power sector, faltering markets, under-performance by discoms and policy flip-flops, will India’s renewable sector be able to meet the target it has set its sights on? 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites industry experts, policymakers, developers, regulators, investors, discoms and consumers to this two-day national conference, which is aimed at bringing together all relevant stakeholders actively engaged with the electricity markets, to take the ongoing conversations on energy in India to the next level. 


CSE’s Citizen’s Report on the ‘State of Renewable Energy in India’ would be released at the conference. Interested participants are requested to register here.
