Our internal workshop was followed by the public conference „EU-India: Understanding the Challenges and Opportunities for Energy Cooperation“ on September 4th, 2013 in India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. It was organized by our Indian project team at TERI and TU Darmstadt in order to discuss relevant issues for EU-Indian energy cooperation with a broader audience. Representatives from politics, academia and the private sector had been invited. The program started with a session on „EU-Emerging Powers: Sustainable, secure, and competitive energy engagement“, and aimed to give an overarching view of the research conducted in the VW project. The project partners (Nadine Piefer, Franziska Müller, Swati Ganeshan, Madhura Joshi, Suet-Yi Lai, Aline Ribas, Judy Smith-Höhn and Agathe Maupin) presented their results on cooperation between the EU and the four emerging powers. This was followed by a panel on multilateral and bilateral ties between India and the EU, which allowed gathering insights into formal and informal cooperation/coordination networks in the field of energy and development cooperation. The third panel focused on different cooperation forms in the energy sectors between EU and India. Here, the activities of transnational actors were discussed. Jens Steffek from TU Darmstadt presented a research framework for exploring transnational activities, which was complemented by views of the entrepreneurial side by panelists from Suzlon, NTPC Limited as well as India's Ministry of Power. The last session finished with a view at „The way forward: How could India-EU energy cooperation be enhanced?“ Here, the panelists highlighted opportunities for an enhanced EU-Indian cooperation.
