NRDC and India's Clean Energy Future

For a decade, Natural Resources Defense Council’s (NRDC) India program has advanced clean energy and public health solutions while fighting climate change. As India, the world's largest democracy, prepares to vote in its general election, the country’s clean energy future remains a central question. Will India achieve its ambitious climate goals and successfully fight air pollution? What does India's rapid development mean for the rest of the world? What are the business opportunities to engage with India and clean energy? 

Join our experts for a discussion about India's climate actions, progress on climate commitments under the Paris Agreement and the transition to a low-carbon economy. Today, India stands at the crossroads of development and the future. At the same time, clean energy and energy efficient solutions are more critical than ever before. With its fast-growing economy, rapid urbanization and employment growth, India is skyrocketing, increasing energy and providing electricity to rural communities and addressing long-time poverty. Join us for this very important program about India at the crossroads as it debates clean energy and energy-efficient demands and solutions.
