Conference on Energy Security & Climate change - Challenges for a developing India

Climate change & energy security are two major recent issues being discussed not just across the Indian subcontinent, but also on a global level.

The economic growth of a nation is considered analogous to its energy resources & their end use. An evenly poised, equity based energy profile is one of the key parameters while analysing a nation’s progress The real challenge lies in balancing a high energy demand economy against concerns of climate change impacts.

To discuss the intricacies of these issues on a national & global perspective, Symbiosis Institute of International Business in association with ENERTIA, (India’s leading journal on sustainable energy & power) is organising a one day conference on “Energy security & climate change - Challenges for developing India”, on Feb 17, 2010 at Le Meridien Hotel, Pune. Mr R V Shahi, former Secretary, Power, Government of India and Mr V P Raja, Chairman, MERC, Mumbai have kindly consented to address the inaugural function.

The conference will bring together eminent experts in the field of energy policy, technologists, industry experts, policy makers to deliberate on important issues concerning India’s energy security and technology options available for the future.

The highlight of the event is to bring together a “distinctive blend of perspectives of current issues from diverse sectors of energy & environment, on a common platform”.

This initiative aims to channelize the Symbiosis vision of “nurturing a sustainable environment through knowledge enhancement” in the energy and environment sector, thereby hoping to stimulate and empower students towards creating an environment of energy consciousness and developing a low carbon economy for India.
