Governing Clean Energy in India

This paper looks at the ways in which clean energy is being governed in India. It analyses and seeks to explain the nature of governance arrangements and policy-making processes around the development of energy sources and technologies defined as ‘clean’ both by the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and beyond. The paper finds that the political barriers to uptake of clean energy in India run deeper than both carbon markets and the scope of technocratic or managerial reform programmes.
