Closing the Circuit – Accelerating Clean Energy Investment (India)

January 1, 2018 - September 31, 2018


This research project, in collaboration with the Miller Center, gathered data from enterprises that were part of the Energy Access India portfolio, impact investors and other ecosystem players to identify learnings that may be helpful to entrepreneurs seeking to enter the energy access space in India. These learnings are also relevant to investors interested in supporting these enterprises, and those stakeholders that seek to improve the ecosystem of support. Data was collected through in-person interviews conducted during a field visit to India, and through phone interviews and analysis of secondary data.

The findings from this work were published in a paper titled “Closing the Circuit: Accelerating Clean Energy Investment in India” and launched at the EAI end of project event in Delhi in September 2018. The paper has subsequently been disseminated through the ANDE Newsletter, and at events organized by the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship at SOCAP 2018. The findings have also been presented at an Energy Access Financing roundtable hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
