Green Power Market Development Group
The Green Power Market Development Group (GPMDG) India, launched in January 2013, is a partnership between World Resources Institute India, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) that works with large commercial and industrial energy consumers in India to rapidly scale up the use of renewable energy in the overall energy consumption. Since then, this initiative has expanded to include the natural aggregator approach, with support from MacArthur Foundation.
GPMDG India accomplishes its objectives by addressing the policy, regulatory and market barriers that currently impede the growth of renewable energy sector. The initiative works with the government agencies and other relevant institutions to help member companies voluntarily set and achieve their renewable energy goals.
