Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

The Demonstration of Innovative Technology and Business Model for Efficient and Clean Cooling in the Pacific project (Cooling Demo Project), funded by the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) and implemented by IIEC is seeking high quality proposals to support demonstration of innovative efficient and clean cooling technologies and business models in the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs). The Cooling Demo project will provide financial support and technical assistance to these demonstrations to mitigate barriers pertaining to initial investment costs and knowledge which constraint greater adoption of efficient and clean cooling in the Pacific.

IIEC-India successfully implemented an on-ground program for improved health services for socio-economic development in selected villages in the State of Uttarakhand in India, supported by Syneos Health. The focus of the program was to provide solar electricity to Primary Health Centres so that they are able to function more effectively and provide better care facilities for the local communities.

IIEC-India partnered with UNDP and the Indian Railways to assist in large scale deployment of solar energy in Indian Railways under the “Railways Solar Mission”. This mission is a part of the Indian government's National Solar Mission in which the Indian Railways plans to commission 1000 MW of solar power across its network by 2020.

IIEC-India was commissioned to undertake a scoping study to support the development of a long-term clean air project in India by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). SDC aims to support and strengthen on-going initiatives by the India government in its drive for abatement of air pollution in select cities and states in India.
