In a first-of-its-kind event, Shakti and U.S.-based think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), hosted the U.S. – India Subnational Energy Workshop in New Delhi.  The event, held from November 1-3, 2017, brought together over 100 participants including 10 representatives of Indian states, 12 representatives of U.S. states, India’s Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), and several U.S. federal government agencies to discuss avenues for cooperation to manage the "Grid of the Future."

RESOURCES FOR THIS INITIATIVE
  • U.S.-India Subnational Energy Workshop
  • States from India and the U.S.  shared details of the smart power technologies used and highlighted the need for important regional interconnections to uptake new sources of distributed power. Participants also toured Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited’s state-of-the-art Smart Grid Lab allowing them to see first-hand how Indian utilities are dealing with the challenges in India’s electricity sector. A key  learning that emerged is that the challenges are quite similar:  how to integrate vast amounts of new renewable energy into an increasingly strained grid and deploy new smart power technologies to more efficiently manage this complex system.  In this U.S.-India subnational energy dialogue, state-level decision makers were able to analyze how their policies and institutions were coping with these challenges.
