ABOUT WISE: The World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE), Pune, India is a not-for-profit organization set up in June 2004, with the primary objective of promoting sustainable energy, energy conservation, and sustainable development. In particular, the institution is committed towards addressing the shortcomings existing in the renewable energy sector in India, viz. lack of policy support and incentives, lack of legislative and research support, lack of qualified manpower, and lack of critical awareness that would lead to the transition to a sustainable energy-based economy. WISE has recently drafted a model draft renewable energy law for India and is advocating its adoption by Parliament. The activities of WISE thus aim to provide a major impetus to the development of the renewable energy sector in all Indian states.
