Renewable Energy

Photo by Angel Jacob

Access to renewable energy helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, particularly coal plants and diesel generators. While the renewable energy sector offers an attractive investment opportunity, there are barriers to investment. 

Through our offices in India and Indonesia, we have significantly influenced government policy related to renewable energy. Our team in India works with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the Ministry of Finance, and other policymaker to increase investment to India’s renewable energy targets. We do this through a three-pillar approach: first, understand potential investors and the barriers they face; second, explore policy solutions to these barriers; and third, develop financial instrument solutions to these barriers.

Developing a Legal and Regulatory Framework for Low Carbon Transition of Indian economy on the path to Net Zero

While India has ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and net-zero targets, it lacks a legal framework to achieve economy-wide net-zero targets. Despite policies like the National Action Plan for Climate Change, India lacks formal climate legislation. Recent sectoral laws promote renewable energy but lack a comprehensive focus on emission reduction. To address this, a net-zero bill has been introduced in the Indian parliament. A potential solution involves consolidating existing laws under a comprehensive Climate/Environment Act and redefining institutions to align with low-carbon objectives.
