Law, Policy and Management

Date: 18th and 19th September, 2017

Venue: International Training Centre, NLSIU


India is the fourth largest energy consumer in the world, all set to overtake China in the next decade if the global energy consumption growth is to be believed. However, India ranks the lowest in the per-capita consumption of electricity, thus making energy paucity, a raging challenge. Governments which rose and fell from power, all proposed an ambitious energy revolution, an increase in the installed capacity in the renewable energy options, increasing import and utilization of the coal resources to fire the Thermal Power Plants, but still have been unable to improve the energy crisis. There has been systematic efforts to develop the prospects and measure growth of deriving energy from various non-conventional sources such as Solar, Wind, Hydroelectricity; various alternative energy sources such as Nuclear Energy, Biogas and Natural Gas; and lastly other unexplored sources such as Tidal and Geothermal.

Aims and Objectives:

  • To advance the idea of Sustainable Energy in India.
  • To highlight the future trends of development of Sustainable Energy in India.
  • To determine the gaps in policy and legislation in furthering the ambition of Sustainable Energy.
  • To elucidate the prospects of Tidal and Geothermal Energy and determine their feasibility.
  • To strengthen the opinion on development and growth of Nuclear Energy as a fully sustainable method of generating clean energy.
  • To put forth a well balanced opinion on the policy-trends regarding realisation of Sustainable Development Goals
  • Critically evaluate the management of the Public Sector Undertakings which operate the renewable energy plants and projects.
  • Critically correlate the advantage of various sources of sustainable energy over each other.
