Focus on India: Policy Best Practices for Industrial Efficiency (Webinar)

27 September 2011

The Solutions Center is working with India's Bureau of Energy Efficiency to engage policymakers in a dialogue to foster industrial efficiency in India. In this webinar-based training—which is part of a series in which the Solutions Center provides assistance and global best practice information tailored to the circumstances and priorities of specific countries—panelists provide a framework under which policymakers in India can discuss policies and programs to further industrial efficiency efforts in their country. And, participants learn from successful policies and program implementation around the world. In particular, we:

  • Introduce the Solutions Center to policymakers and analysts in India
  • Provide an overview of industrial efficiency policy and program best practices from around the world and opportunities for enhanced use in India
  • Discuss how the Solutions Center can be of most value to India with design and use of industrial efficiency policies and programs.
