Message from Our Patron Dr. Vijay Kelkar

The Energy world has undergone multifold changes in the last fifty years and growing dynamism of the emerging economies including India means that global energy requirements will be even greater in the coming 50 years. Hitherto fossil fuels and coal has been the main constituent of the energy basket, but the resource abundance of fossil fuel and coal is vanishing. This coupled with increasing concerns about ecology and global warming makes it imperative that the new mantra will be the development of sustained and clear energy. Hence, it indeed augurs well that non-governmental organizations such as ERSAF are entering the arena to support much needed policy shift in India
