Launch of CEEW Centre for Energy Finance

The CEEW Centre for Energy Finance acts as a non-partisan market observer and driver, to monitor, develop, test, and deploy financial solutions to advance the energy transition.

Know more

 
  • India is today one of the majors leading the global energy transition and the government is committed to surpass its ambitious renewable energy target of 175 GW by 2022. I congratulate CEEW for organising Energy Horizons - a global platform, which will spur discussion on transformative ideas needed to accelerate the global energy transition and also deepen understanding on markets, finance, and new technologies.

    Anand Kumar

    Secretary, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy

  • We are seeing an electricity transition but a lack of ambitious and sustained policies to drive decarbonisation sectors means countries are not maximising the benefits of the transition – including cleaner air and energy security – for their people. With Energy Horizons, CEEW provides a needed space to find ways to drive the global energy transition.

    Rana Adib

    Executive Secretary, REN21

  • Energy Horizons has been envisioned as a global platform for thought and action leadership on the energy transition, with a focus on India. India’s transition to robust, clean, and inclusive energy systems holds the key to solving several key development challenges, such as eradicating poverty, raising living standards, building world-class infrastructure, and meeting global climate commitments in a carbon-constrained world. Being at the centre of the ongoing global energy transition, India’s experience could also potentially inform and inspire the energy transitions in other emerging economies across Africa, Asia, and South America.

    Arunabha Ghosh

    CEO, CEEW
