A Dialogue on Global & Domestic Energy Markets and Challenges

The Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR) launches the India Energy Samvad* that includes a series of webinars and dialogues on ‘Energy’ with the scientific community, industry experts, academia, and think tank professionals, to come up with actionable policy inputs and recommendations. As part of the initiative, CPPR shall also undertake research studies and publications. We aim to discuss and deliberate on key themes and issues relating (but not limited to) understanding how the energy policies in general have to be modified in current scenarios, demands, and challenges. We begin with setting a context for our discussions and deliberations, in the background of COP26, Glasgow, 2021, and what we can learn from the Global energy crisis.

The discussions of the webinars will focus on how the energy market has undergone a change over the last few decades; the long and short term competition among energy providers, and operators in the market encompassing private providers. CPPR believes these are imperative questions which currently face the academia, industrial sector, as well as policy makers. Some of the deliberations will focus on the Indian policies that govern energy sources, pricing, and usage; upgrading and updating the energy infrastructure; state and central government commitments towards efficient and sustainable use of energy; the tariff and regulation policies, and the like.

CPPR would like to showcase this webinar series as a timely intervention by navigating through visibly pressing issues of the energy market, global and local challenges, country commitments; and to engage with relevant stakeholders as well as policy makers. In 2022 we shall also be launching online courses on energy policies and management.
