Council on Energy, Environment and Water Integrated | International | Independent
Consumer aspirations, efficient appliances and a sustained recovery

07 Oct 2020   |   1430–1630 hrs IST

This session will feature the launch of CEEW's recent reports 'State of Electricity Access in India' and 'Awareness and Adoption of Energy Efficiency in Indian homes', based on the first-ever national-level India Residential Energy Survey (IRES) 2020. IRES covers 15,000 households from 152 districts in the 21 most populous states (accounting for 97 per cent of India’s population).

The speakers will dwell on the strategies to sustain the momentum on energy access and efficiency, while tapping into consumer aspirations unlocked by recent electrification drives. This, in turn, could support a sustainable recovery in the power sector and beyond.
