Policy Working Group (PWG)


IESA Policy Working Group (PWG) is an initiative by IESA for its member companies to support government bodies through discussion and contribution to create robust energy storage & EV policy for India. IESA, along with its members, are continuously giving recommendations and feedback to various government bodies on their regulations and policy initiatives regarding energy storage. With the support from this group we are actively working with MNRE, MoP, MHI, Indian Railways, CERC, CEA, POSOCO, NITI Aayog, DST, Invest India and BIS, on creating a robust energy infrastructure to enable adoption of advanced energy storage technologies in India.
