An Integrated Energy Policy Approach to India’s Net Zero Energy Transition

The Ashoka Centre for a People-centric Energy Transition (ACPET), at its launch event in March 2023, announced that its first research project would be on drawing up an integrated energy policy approach to achieving a net-zero transition by 2070, and other milestones, along the way. Prepared over a short period of just about six months, this project is a first attempt to address one of the most complex challenges facing India today – defining the policy environment that would open up potential energy transition pathways for more fully achieving India’s stated goals in a cost-effective, inclusive manner.
