UK Launch of Closing India’s ‘Energy Gap’ Report
UK Launch of Closing India’s ‘Energy Gap’ Report – The Role of Solar Power and Religious Institutions
Over 200 million people in India lack access to electricity. By closing this ‘energy gap’, there is a great opportunity to address climate change. By advocating for and implementing distributed renewable energy solutions, we can reduce dependence on polluting fossil fuels and champion the energy solutions of the future.
City Sikhs, City Hindus Network, Young Jains and the Office of Lord Gadhia cordially invite you to the global release of a new report mapping the deployment of clean renewable energy solutions in India by religious and spiritual organisations.
Authored by the Bhumi Project, GreenFaith, the Shine Campaign and EPG Economic and Strategy Consulting, the report:
- Provides a first look into how Indian religious and spiritual organisations are implementing renewable energy solutions in their own facilities
- Explores how they might play a vital role in closing the ‘energy gap’
- Recommends how these groups can partner with social entrepreneurs to maximise impact
