Energise aims to facilitate discussions on the latest research, technologies, business models and policies, resulting in information exchange and incubation of new ideas, with an aim to influence the inter-related energy efficiency and climate change dialogue in India.

At Energise, we will host peer-reviewed presentations on three core thematic areas: Buildings and Communities, Urban Infrastructure and Utilities, and Energy Efficiency for Business Competitiveness. Submitted abstracts and papers are currently going through a rigorous selection and peer review process will be accepted and also published as part of a knowledge compendium.
