Energy is one of the major drivers of a growing economy like India. At the same time, its many facets - including implications of energy usages - present a complex collage. Thus, to establish an understanding of the sector, wide dissemination of appropriate knowledge and analyses about energy and energy applications becomes crucial. While a lot of developmental activities are being carried out in India in the energy sector, there is a lack of assimilation of such diffused activities – in terms of a synthesis of best practices as well as in terms of a consolidation of databases and knowledge. This underscores the need for sharing of information, and resources on a continued basis in a structured manner to enable easy access to information and applications.

Against this backdrop, it was TERI’s endeavour - on behalf of the National Knowledge Commission - to establish India Energy Portal (IEP) for effective consolidation and assimilation of knowledge.

IEP, though India-centric would be global in content as may be relevant to India’s needs. IEP, built upon public-private partnership, would provide access to information and knowledge on various aspects of energy in a comprehensive manner to a variety of stakeholders.
