State Energy and Climate Index Report for India

Apart from policy formulation, it is also important to track the progress of the implementation of these policies. The State Energy and Climate Index (SECI) is the first index that aims to track the efforts made by states and UTs in the climate and energy sector. It is hoped that an in-depth analysis of individual states will help in enhancing the service delivery on various parameters of energy. These parameters have been devised keeping in mind India’s goals for climate change and clean energy transition.
