About the event:
He attends SunPlugged – the GreenKarbon Solar Festival on Saturday, January 19, 2013, to interact with climate enthusiasts and students. Recipient of the Padma Bhushan Award, Dr. Pachauri has also led the TERI Light a Billion Lives (LaBL) initiative which will be showcased at the festival. With 360 million people in India lacking access to electricity, the programme aims to provide solar energy using a localised, bottom-up approach. Using an entrepreneurial model, LaBL provides solar lamps to villages through a local entrepreneur who rents the lamps to villagers in the evenings for a small fee. LaBL lanterns will be lighting SunPlugged for the three days of the festival!
