Ankur Malyan is policy researcher working at the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW), New Delhi, India, in the Low-Carbon Pathways team. He has been working in the energy and climate change domain for more than three years, exploring the near- and long-term aspects of energy transitions and mitigation pathways.

His recent research work encompasses: developing Global Change Analysis Model (GCAM) for Indian states to facilitate sub-national energy-climate policy research and adaptive decision making, understanding the energy system transformations and trade-offs in India under alternative net-zero pathways, and assessing the evolution of India’s energy portfolio under different principle-driven carbon budgets. Additionally, he also works on analysis of carbon space consumption, perceptions of stakeholders on India’s decarbonisation strategies and low carbon technologies such as carbon capture, storage and utilisation.

Ankur is also a guest lecturer at TERI School of Advanced Studies, New Delhi. He delivers sessions on application of scenario analysis and integrated assessment models for policy insights. Prior to CEEW, Ankur has worked at Integrated Research and Action for Development (IRADe) and Thinkthrough Consulting Pvt Ltd.

  • What I believe in


    Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.


    What Others say


    Early bird. Utopianist. Occasionally quotes Phil Knight. Ankur is always keen on bringing refreshing insights to his work and ‘intellectual’ perspectives to Game of Thrones fan theories.
