Event Description
Speaker(s): Shankar Krishnamoorthy, accompanied by Jaideep Sandhu and Ramani Hariharan, energy professionals based in Paris

Access to energy is a key driver for the development of societies.

But over a hundred million Indians still do not have access to electricity and many more are without access to clean cooking gas.

At the same time, India (together with China and roughly equally) will install half the global electricity generation facilities over the next quarter of a century.

The talk will cover:

– Energy needs and lacunae of a high growth economy

– A brief history of India’s energy sector

– Environmental challenges and recent successes in greening the sector

– Comparison with other countries, notably China

– What the future has in store

Shankar will be happy to take questions from the audience together with Jaideep and Ramani (earlier based in Engie London, who have joined Engie in Paris recently).

The three together have nearly hundred years of experience in the energy sector all over the world.
