The Role of Center-State Relations in Achieving India’s Renewable Energy Target

February 25, 2019 • 4:00 – 5:30 pm EST
In 2015, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi announced that India will generate 175 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2022. India's ability to achieve this ambitious goal, however, will depend on the progress of India's states in meeting specific renewable energy capacity targets. The Wadhwani Chair in U.S.-India Studies and the Energy and National Security Program at CSIS are pleased to host Anand Kumar, Secretary at the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy to unpack the role of center-state relations in achieving the target of 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022. He will also highlight opportunities for how U.S. stakeholders can engage India and its states to help them meet their targets.
