Australia-India Knowledge Exchange on 'Smart Energy Management for Sustainable Cities'
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), India, in collaboration with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney, Australia, is organizing workshops on 'Smart Energy Management for Sustainable Cities’ as part of the Australia-India Knowledge Exchange partnership. The two workshops being organized in Delhi and Sydney will bring together knowledge and expertise to discuss and address challenges and strategies for mainstreaming smart energy management in cities. With support from the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA), and industry partners Mahindra Group and DuPont India Pvt. Ltd., the collaboration will provide a platform for relevant stakeholders in India and Australia to deliberate on energy-efficient and low-carbon pathways to mitigate negative externalities of urbanization in Indian cities. The first workshop is being organized in TERI, New Delhi, in December 2018, followed by a reciprocal workshop in UNSW, Sydney, in March 2019. A policy brief will be developed based on the key takeaways that will emerge from the first workshop. It will be launched at the workshop being organized in UNSW Sydney.
