RE100 India Policy Asks Launch

Jun 30 2021, 10:30 UTC - Jun 30 2021, 12:00 UTC

The RE100 India Policy Asks Launch brings together the voices of 70+ businesses operating in India (committed to procuring 100% renewable electricity to power their operations) on what it will take to build an enabling and inclusive environment for adopting a robust RE policy in the country.

As part of a stronger climate action plan, India has committed to increasing its renewable power capacity target from 175 GW in 2022 to 450 GW by 2030. Commercial and industrial (C&I) consumers account for a predominant share of total electricity consumption in India. In 2018,  C&I consumers accounted for 51 percent of total electricity consumption, but only 3 percent of total renewable power consumption. To meet national clean energy and global climate commitments, greater adoption of clean energy by C&I consumers is critical.

Businesses in India are already rising to the climate challenge, with more than 70 companies with headquarters and/or operations in the country voluntarily pledging to RE100 – a global initiative that brings together hundreds of large and ambitious businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity. In doing so, these businesses are looking to procure renewable power at scale and seek to enable policies and regulations to meet their RE100 targets and support the government with achieving its climate goals.

This event will also kick off a series of policy advocacy engagements – with different government bodies at the center and state level and with key stakeholders in the electricity generation and distribution value chain.
