Policy Brief | Revamping India’s Renewable Energy Sector: Opportunities and Challenges


This IPCS Policy Brief draws from the conclusions of the seminar on ‘Indian and Chinese Energy Policies Addressing Energy Needs and Climate Change’ held in February 2017. It was organised by IPCS in collaboration with the Centre for East Asian Studies (CEAS) and Energy Studies Programme, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi.

The five policy recommendations listed below have been identified on the basis of an assessment of government intent and willingness, actionability, availability of resources, and affordability. An elaboration of each recommendation follows in the next section, flagging also the challenges that may be faced in their implementation.
