Energy Transitions Commission India second stakeholder engagement meeting
The Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) India is a unique, high-level, multi-stakeholder platform that will focus on facilitating and supporting Government of India’s objective of transitioning to an electricity system with a high share of renewable energy.
TERI is organising ETC India's Second Stakeholder Engagement Meeting on 25th June 2018 at the Taj Mansingh Hotel at New Delhi. This stakeholder engagement will cover recent research findings on feasible capacity scenarios for renewable and conventional energy till 2030, an assessment of flexibility needs and options by 2030, and a demand-side analysis of projected annual electricity demand for all sectors and for each Indian state. At the event, the findings of TERI’s latest discussion paper on stranded assets will also be presented.
About the Energy Transitions Commission
Energy Transitions Commission International was convened to help identify pathways for change in our energy systems to ensure both better growth and a better climate. This is inspired by the work of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate and its flagship project the New Climate Economy. The Commissioners bring a diverse and remarkable range of viewpoints and extraordinary depth of experience. They come from across the energy spectrum, including investors, incumbent energy companies, innovators, industrial energy users, public and academic institutions and foundations, advisors, and academics from across the developed and developing world. What they share is a mission to accelerate change towards zero-carbon energy systems that enable robust economic development and limit the rise in global temperature to well below 2°C. They do this by providing decision-makers with insights and options for action at local and/or sector level. This stems from objective research and wide engagement with actors in the energy system. ETC India is the first country-specific initiative. India was chosen to have its own ETC as the country is taking great strides in transitioning to low carbon pathways. The Indian ETC can thus act as a model for other emerging economies as they seek to move to low carbon pathways.
