Shakti is one of the founding member and resource partner of the Clean Energy Access Network (CLEAN), a pan India network working to expand decentralized renewable energy (DRE) access. CLEAN’s mission is to bring together a wide range of DRE practitioners and stakeholders to strengthen the sector. Shakti is playing a pivotal role in the network by supporting a portfolio of activities that will inform policy making in the DRE sector.

This report, developed by CLEAN, details out the first ever assessment of the DRE sector in India highlighting both progress and innovation. Covering the fiscal year April 2016 to March 2017, the report serves as a benchmark for the sector to track ongoing performance and identify future needs. It also calls for increased public partnership to scale DRE solutions and to build a modern energy system for India that serves the hundreds of millions of people still without access to electricity or clean cooking.
