About the South India Energy Conclave

Join the British Deputy High Commissions of Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru for the first South India Energy Conclave. The conclave will bring together South Indian state governments, organisations and entrepreneurs to celebrate climate achievements and discuss areas of further collaboration in the run up to COP26.

The conclave will focus on climate change, clean energy transition and corporate action, which will be widely discussed over the two sessions. The conclave will celebrate and build momentum for climate action in the southern states of India by celebrating successes, sharing best practice, exploring further areas of collaboration and encouraging ‘Go Zero’ commitments.

This is a fantastic opportunity for any business or organisation seeking opportunities in climate change, green recovery and energy transition to listen to speakers from the state governments as well as from the UK government and learn about what your business can do to transition towards a cleaner and greener tomorrow.
