At ReNew Power, we are glad to be playing a part in India’s transition to clean energy as the nation’s leading renewables energy company. In January 2020, during the WEF Annual Meet at Davos, we organized our second thought leadership roundtable to discuss the current climate crisis and explore solutions for the same. We were fortunate to host a diverse mix of participants including top policymakers, business leaders, academia and representatives from media and civil society. We had an engaging hour-long session that threw up various perspectives, an honest assessment of where we are, what various stakeholders should do and some lesser-known aspects linked to the climate situation.

In 2015, the government made its intentions to transition to a lower-emission electricity system clear by declaring an ambitious target of 175 GW from renewables by 2022. The message was simple; wider and cheaper energy access but at minimal cost to the environment. Read more
