The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) and the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation are hosting the CEEW Shakti Renewable Energy Dialogue, being held in partnership with the International Solar Alliance and REN21.
About the Dialogue
India has displayed global leadership in the promotion of renewable energy, aiming to expand its renewable energy capacity at a record pace, and to a record level of 175 GW by 2022. The past year has seen a number of highs for the sector in India – record-low tariffs, introduction of auction-based bidding for wind projects, increased investment flows into the sector, etc. At the same time, renewable energy sources continue to cement their role in the energy mix of countries around the world. The dialogue will discuss both the growing role of renewable energy in the global energy mix, and the growing role of India in further advancing renewable energy deployment.
