About India Energy Congress
The India Energy Congress is the annual flagship event of WEC-IMC. India Energy Congress provides common platform to experts from all the sectors of energy to share their wisdom, thoughts & plans in an effort to chalk out the roadmap for sustainable growth in the energy sector. The first such Congress was held in 2007 on the theme, “Economic, Efficient & Environment-friendly Energy”. The next was held in 2008 and the theme was “Delivering Sustainable Energy Security”. Both were a resounding success and WEC-IMC now brings the third edition. In 2010, it is on the theme, “Energy Challenges for a Sustainable Future” at Hotel Ashok, New Delhi from April 6-7, 2010. The theme is in consonance with that of World Energy Congress to be held in Montreal, Canada in September 2010.
Through deliberations, IEC 2010 proposes to evolve the perspective of the Indian energy sector on issues to be raised at the World Energy Congress. It is planned to organize four round table discussions on the challenges of 4As of sustainability, namely,
  • Availability: Continuity of supply, quality and reliability of service
  • Accessibility: Meeting the demand for modern affordable energy for all
  • Acceptability: Meeting the social and environmental goals
  • Accountability: Policies, Regulation & Resources 
IEC 2010 will have multi-level, multi-discipline interactions. Deliberations will be flagged off by senior sector experts from energy sector, setting the tone for the day. Keynote plenary sessions will be addressed by senior bureaucrats highlighting energy issues at the macro level followed by four intense round table debates on energy issues and strategies with CEOs and energy experts on the panel. International speakers will share their country’s perspective at the Global Perspective Dialogue. IEC 2010 will, therefore, provide a unique platform to participants to get a holistic view of energy issues and high level networking forum for B2B meetings.
