2016 • 2 years, 6 months • Climate Solutions

The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) is a leading South Asian not-for-profit policy research institution, with offices in India and across the globe. TERI’s climate program advances transformative solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation, with a special focus on sustainable use of natural resources and efficient use of energy and infrastructure. In the energy sector, TERI has rich experience in designing reform strategies for power utilities, conducting policy analysis, resolving regulatory constraints and designing energy efficiency programs. This award supports TERI to partner with a state-owned power distribution utility in the state of Karnataka, the Mangalore Electric Supply Corporation (MESCOM), to design and implement a comprehensive plan of action to promote and improve end-use energy efficiency measures to generate significant savings in the demand for electricity.

2016 • 2 years • Climate Solutions

The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) is a leading South Asian not-for-profit policy research institution, with offices in India and across the globe. TERI’s climate program spans global, federal and state levels to advance transformative solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation, with special focus on sustainable use of natural resources and efficient use of energy and infrastructure. This award builds on TERI’s ongoing work on environmental policy analysis to design a National Inventory Management System (NIMS) for India  - a management system to track year-on-year impact of various policies and programs on greenhouse gas (GHG) emission levels, which are a critical input to the Measurement, Reporting and Verification framework that the country will adopt to report progress in 2018 on national commitments made in Paris.

2016 • 3 years • Climate Solutions

Based in India, the Energy and Resource Institute (TERI) is a leading South Asian not-for-profit policy research institution that advances transformative solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation, with a special focus on sustainable use of natural resources and efficient use of energy and infrastructure. Since the Paris international climate agreement, policymakers at the national and federal levels have taken several actions to significantly raise the renewable energy (RE) generation capacity in the country – to meet its massive energy requirements and to fulfill the commitments made to the global community. However, a key challenge that continues to create serious concern is the lack of options and tested pathways by which RE can be effectively integrated into existing and future power distribution networks. With added generation capacity, this challenge will become even more critical in the future. This award builds on TERI’s ongoing work on environmental policy analysis,in developing frameworks,software tools,standards and policies for effective integration of RE in the power distribution grid for one state, which could then serve as a useful prototype for other Indian states. TERI works closely with policy makers,power utilities,regulatory commissions and RE generating entities to identify solutions and pathways that meet their respective specific needs.
