IPPAI was set up as a not-for-profit association shortly after the Government of India opened the power sector to private industry. Since its inception as an independent body in 1994, IPPAI’s aim has been to provide a neutral platform for the examination of issues critical to the development of the power sector in India, to discuss energy policy and to focus on strategic, financial, legal, regulatory and technical issues in the power, oil, gas and allied sectors with a prime focus on independent power producers.

As we initiate dialogues within the power sector incorporating environmental and socio-ecological concerns in our deliberations, we look at strategies which are more holistic and do not prescribe economic growth at the cost of the environment. Moving ahead, we are keen to bring a sustainable approach in our policies.
