About the Conference

Energy sustainability is not just an opportunity to transform societies and grow economies, it is also a necessity – a prerequisite to meet growing energy demand in many parts of the world and to reduce the global carbon footprint.

In order to build a strong basis for prosperity and competitiveness, individual countries must balance the three core dimensions of what Oliver Wyman and the World Energy Council have defined as the energy trilemma: affordability and access, energy security and environmental sustainability.

With this aim, the conference aims to promote and brainstorm ideas on how to maintain a balance between security, affordability and sustainability in accessing and using energy in our daily lives. The discussions and brainstorming will be to identify the legal issues involved in dealing with energy trilemma, exploring legal solutions for the same and chart out a roadmap of legal steps in resolving the energy trilemma through legal means which is a major task before the international community in general and the developing countries including India, in particular.
