The International Energy Agency organised a webinar on 19 January 2021 in collaboration with CSTEP, NITI Aayog, and the British Deputy High Commission, Bangalore, to showcase Karnataka’s efforts in transitioning towards renewable sources of energy. Named the Karnataka Power System Transformation Workshop, the webinar is expected to throw its weight behind sustainable energy measures that have been fruitful globally and introduce them to the Indian audience. It will be an ideal platform for regional and international experts to collaborate for accelerating solutions.
CSTEP's report Grid Impact for High RE Scenarios in Southern India adds impetus to the transition towards renewable energy in India. It was launched by Mr. Vivek Kumar Dewangan, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Power, during the webinar.
