About the Organization:

Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) is a premier, national level Institute for Post Graduate, Fellow Programme and Mid-career/in-service education, research and consulting in rural management.

About the Programme:

Energy per se is not a need, but energy services are absolutely essential to the functioning of any society. It is central to the delivery of adequate living conditions and provision of basic goods and services such as food, water, health care, education, shelter, employment and other goods and services. Energy use has a strong correlation with quality of life and human development particularly at the initial stages of development.

Energy forms one of sustainable development goals (SDGs): SDG7 reads as “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.” Moreover, energy has a direct bearing in meeting each of the other SDGs. In this backdrop, this programme looks into various energy options for India, specifically for rural set up, so as to provide decent standard of living to all the citizens in an efficient, equitable, and environmentally friendly manner.
