International Seminar on a Global Renewable Energy Support Programme, with Particular Focus on Globally Funded Feed-in Tariffs - 30 March-1 April, 2015

Centre for Science and Environment and What Next seeks to bring together a group of experts from a wide range of backgrounds to further elaborate and develop the idea of a global support programme with a particular focus on globally funded renewable energy feed-in tariffs. 

Roundtable on ‘German Energiewende - Lessons for India's Solar Rooftop Programme’

Germany has made remarkable progress in deployment of renewable energy. This energy transformation or ‘Energiewende’ from fossil fuel to renewable energy is attributed to German policies with particular focus on feed-in tariffs. It has encouraged solar rooftop installations and as of Dec 2013, Germany had an installed capacity of 8.7 gigawatts (GW) of solar rooftop.

Distributed generation or mini-grids are the solution to India’s power woes in the rural sector, says CSE

  • New Delhi-based think-tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) discussed the role mini-grids have to play to eradicate energy poverty in the country and proposed a model to ensure at least 12 hours of electricity to every household per day at a workshop on “Sustainable Mini-Grid for Energy Access” in Delhi

वीज टंचाई कमी करण्यासाठी 'मिनी -ग्रीड' हा चांगला पर्याय

  • आपला देश विविध पातळ्यांवर विकास करत आहे. त्या विकासामध्ये वीजेचा हातभार
    मोठा असणार आहे. पण, सध्या वीजेच्या बाबतीत आपला देश 'गरीब'च आहे. ही 'वीज
    गरीबी' कमी करण्यासाठी आमची संस्था म्हणजेच सेंट फाॅर सायन्स अॅण्ड
    एन्व्हार्यन्मेंट (सीएसई) , विविध पातळ्यांवर विचारमंथन करते. प्रत्येक घरात
    किमान १२ तास तरी वीज मिळावी यासाठी आमचा प्रयत्न आहे. यासाठी मिनी ग्रीड
    तंत्रज्ञान उपयुक्त ठरू शकते. याच विषयावर अधिक विस्ताराने चर्चा करण्यासाठी
    पुणे येथे 'सस्टेनेबल मिनी ग्रीड फाॅर एॅनजीर् अॅक्सेस' या विषयावर कार्यशाळा

Mini-grids can be a viable source of power for India’s energy poor

  • New Delhi based think-tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) discussed the role mini-grids have to play to eradicate energy poverty in the country and proposed a model to ensure at least 12 hours of electricity to every household per day at a workshop on “Sustainable Mini-Grid for Energy Access” in Pune

Workshop - Sustainable Mini-Grid for Energy Access

Energy access in rural India has been a development priority for the government for many decades.
