Workshop: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Interventions for Industrial Parks

WRI India’s project, "Delivering Sustainable Urban Services" aims to improve, scale and adapt sustainable urban services – solutions that meet the vital needs of citizens and local businesses, while producing local and global benefits.

Traditional models of city development can lock us into congestion, sprawl, and inefficient resource use. To drive economic opportunity, cities must provide citizens and local businesses’ service needs for mobility, lighting, heating, cooling, and sanitation – in an environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable manner.

From an energy resource perspective, industrial parks are a good example of a bounded area with mixed use entities (industrial/commercial/residential) to help understand how energy services are delivered and challenges that must be overcome to move to sustainable energy supplies.

This workshop will facilitate a collaboration among a diverse group of energy stakeholders, including regulators, utilities, businesses, governments, and civil society to understand possible solutions to energy efficiency and renewable energy interventions at industrial parks. We will also discuss a new decision-support tool to enable a dialogue between cities (the demand side) and providers of technology/equipment and finance (the supply side).
