IPPAI IS A THINK TANK WHICH SEEKS OUT OF THE BOX IDEAS FOR POWER SECTOR
IPPAI was set up as a not-for-profit association shortly after the Government of India opened the power sector to private industry. Since its inception as an independent body in 1994, IPPAI’s aim has been to provide a neutral platform for the examination of issues critical to the development of the power sector in India, to discuss energy policy and to focus on strategic, financial, legal, regulatory and technical issues in the power, oil, gas and allied sectors with a prime focus on independent power producers.
IPPAI is able to take up pioneering positions on issues that the industry grapples with and seek solutions to these in a collaborative manner. We keep track of the latest policies and regulatory trends to ensure success in this volatile emerging market where policy changes and political uncertainty impinge on the success or failure of project development.
IPPAI provides an engaging interface between players in the energy sector, policymakers (central and state level), electricity boards, financial institutions, ministries, power developers, Indian and multinational companies, equipment suppliers, EPC contractors and consultants.
IPPAI’s neutral disposition enables it to interact with regulators from a position of strength and provide cutting-edge information on developments in the emerging market.
Eminent thinkers, renowned experts and erudite speakers come together on a common platform to inform, inspire and create change.
"It is important that decision-makers and social justice campaigners continue to interface at such forums in order to explore improved ways of monitoring service provider accountability and responsibility to the general public."
Mr. Ishmahil Blagrove Jr,
Author and International Social justice Campaigner.
"It is always a learning experience because of the interaction. There is always something new happening. And we meet old colleagues."
Dr. Pramod Deo, Former Chairman, CERC
"It is one of the unique forums to meet so many regulators and decision-makers for energy in India. It’s an amazing place to really share thoughts and meet so many of them all over India and sometimes from several other countries all at once. From that perspective, I think it’s something very special about that retreat."
Mr. Pashupathy Gopalan
President, Asia Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa, SunEdison
"IPPAI is doing a wonderful job because they bring companies and regulators together, where regulators really hear from companies what their viewpoint is and what problems they are facing. Regulators too talk about the dilemma they face regarding various legal issues. On this platform, there is exchange of ideas and discussion of new areas like solar."
Mr. Sushil Maroo
MD and CEO, Essar Power Limited
"It’s an excellent opportunity to share views for the development of the sector, to exchange ideas, communicate with people and to listen to various opinions, which eventually will enrich and make the entire sector vibrant and strong."
Mr. Gopal Saxena Director, BRPL and BYPL
