Background

Policies and regulations to promote renewable and energy efficiency are already in place in India issued by both Central and State Electricity Regulatory Commissions (CERC and SERCs) but the level of implementation varies widely and support from utilities is often weak. Civil society has the potential to act as a locomotive both pressuring and supporting regulators in implementing RE/EE programmes.

Purpose

To empower civil society and consumer groups to participate in both state and federal level regulatory processes in India and to demand ambitious EE / RE regulations coupled with their effective implementation by utilities.
