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.
As we initiate dialogues within the power sector incorporating environmental and socio-ecological concerns in our deliberations, we look at strategies which are more holistic and do not prescribe economic growth at the cost of the environment. Moving ahead, we are keen to bring a sustainable approach in our policies.
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.
To provide an apolitical and agenda-free platform for the discussion and examination of regulatory, policy, strategic and financial issues critical to the development of the energy and infrastructure sectors within India, which may interest overseas investors.
To enable India to become globally competitive and follow internationally benchmarked best practices as far as infrastructure and energy is concerned.
To address the opportunities of an ever-liberalising Indian economy and within that creating dialogues and discourse which will help both governments (federal and state) and corporations (both domestic and transnational) address relevant issues within the infrastructure and energy sectors, thereby enabling all interested and involved groups to come together for the greater good.
