India has great ambitions for power security and sustainability while ensuring its economic growth. The government of India has ambitions to give universal, reliable 24×7 energy supply across the country by 2019. By 2030, the country aims to decrease its emissions intensity by 33-35 percent from 2005 baseline – amongst the highest across developing nations and increase the share of non-fossil fuel-based electricity to 40 percent.

Demand Side Management (DSM) has always figured in India’s Integrated Energy Policy (IEP) as a big tool safeguard for the power security of the nation. Due to this, India has been organizing some of the major programs for promoting power efficiency in various fields. However, newer technologies and approaches need to be set and implemented to reach its power sustainability targets. As the movement to acquire India’s climate targets under the Paris Agreement would gain momentum, adoption of future Environmentally Sound and Affordable Technologies (ESATs) becomes even more significant.

The Government of India has targetted its focus by setting power efficiency as one of the four key pillars for India’s energy future. The National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency (NMEEE) is a demo to India’s ambition to climate change mitigation via Policy & Practice initiatives. During November 2017,  Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. (EESL) along with The World Bank, India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and Department of Science and Technology(DST) organized a signature event INSPIRE 2017 at Jaipur, India in order to deliberate on such best practices. 0ver 300 delegates deliberated on various burning issues and solutions of climate change in the 5-days event from the government, non-government, international agencies, multi-lateral development banks, and bilateral development partners. One of the significant achievements of INSPIRE 2017 is to bring more and more “Innovation” in the energy efficiency arena.

The Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) of India, the World Bank, Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), The World Resources Institute (WRI) and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) have come together to present the “International Symposium to Promote Innovation & Research in Energy Efficiency (INSPIRE) – 2018” following the success of the INSPIRE 2017 in Jaipur (India). This 3-day symposium will be organized, during November 11-13, in New Delhi, India will showcase & promote innovation and implementation in futuristic power efficiency technologies, policies, and financing mechanism.
