Many of the world’s largest companies are expanding beyond existing Asia operations in India and China to new manufacturing hubs in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. These companies also want renewable energy to power their businesses.
WRI India's Deepak Krishnan and Vince Digneo, Sustainability Strategist, Corporate Responsibility, Adobe will explore lessons from India on how companies, utilities and government can work together to power industry with affordable clean energy.
For four years in India, World Resources Institute and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) have convened the Green Power Market Development Group (GPMDG), an industry-led initiative to scale up the country's clean energy market. Since its launch in 2013, the GPMDG has brought together regulators, utilities, businesses, government authorities and civil society to address policy and market barriers that impede growth of renewable energy.
The webinar comes ahead of a high-level regional meeting on March 27-28, 2017, in Bangkok, Thailand, to discuss strategies and opportunities for clean energy investment in key Asian markets – including India, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam.
