Issues at the state and local levels

RE-Energising Odisha: An assessment of Renewable Energy Policies, Challenges and Opportunities


DRE, by its very nature, is and should be strongly rooted in the local context. Therefore, while national-level initiatives and mechanisms are important to foster a favorable ecosystem, it is equally (if not more) critical to understand the local (state/district/village) conditions. The Collective has attempted to explore the RE landscape in the state of Odisha with support from Climate Parliament. This project sought to reach out to parliamentarians and legislators with findings about voiced barriers, gaps, and concerns. The report was also translated in Oriya.

Such local-level analyses and networking are an important part of the Collective’s agenda for action.
