Interventions: ENERGY JUSTICE

Regional Consultations on NEP 2017

22nd July 2017, Orissa and Jabalpur
As decided in the previous meeting on the NEP 2017, PAIRVI and BCPH have organized two regional Consultations in Orissa and Jabalpur on 22nd July. Niti Aayog on request of PAIRVI, BCPH and other energy groups has extended the deadline of receiving the comments on NEP 2017. We make the most of this precious time and have successfully organized these two Consultations in which a number of local organizations have shared their comments on the policy. The final comments from around 30 energy groups, organizations, individual and experts were shared with Niti Aayog. 

 

Energy Justice

It works to enhance understanding on energy, renewable and energy alternatives and energy justice. It advocates just energy transition which promotes equity, democracy and peoples controls over energy systems. PAIRVI believes that drastic reduction in energy use in industrialized countries is a pre requisite for climate stabilization, sustainable development and just energy transition. PAIRVI works with peoples groups and the government to reduce fossil fuel dependence and promote decentralized, locally viable and community controlled energy alternativesas well as promoting equitable renewable energy policies.
