Synopsis

Governments and policy planners in many major economies are focussing more and more attention on developing infrastructure while varying challenges are faced by each depending upon their geographic specificities and the landscape of pre-existing infrastructure. However, it is imperative that all such development occurs without aggravating global warming and severe climate changes. And that can only by achieved by abandoning all fossil- based power sources and switching to clean, renewable energy. Raj Iyer, our chief guest speaker, will be happy to help the IPA audience to understand what exactly is at stake in terms of clean energy grids and their ever more importance amidst growing environmental concerns. His address will be followed by Q & A.
