Something About

The Energy Forum

We are an independent, non-partisan think tank that conducts intensive research, analyses and consults on the functions, policies, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets, national security contexts and other developmental issues. We, specially, focus on carrying out research in the following areas:

To understand and devise ways in which rural communities and households not only become energy self-sufficient but energy producers instead of energy consumers, especially in the developing-world context. We believe that knowledge gained from such research can be applied in other countries that are grappling with similar socio economic contexts

The principle of energy justice and social inclusion will be a motivating factor in much of our research work. To this end, we discuss, for instance, ideas to expand micro grids for electricity access to communities where traditional modes of electricity may take time to reach. Also, we understand ways in which various forms of energy can reach the poorest household in far-flung areas and, thereby, help in making the last-mile connections

We contribute to expanding systems of energy farming through expanding the knowledge bases of such systems.
Analyzing global oil markets and petroleum products is one of our key focus areas.
We believe that much of the energy discourse today cannot happen without taking in the context of climate change so we attempt to explore the most efficient and effective solutions to today's global energy and environmental challenges which are critical to the well-being of individuals and society.
Think tanks like ours have the potential to play a vital role in supporting the development of locally-led, context-specific policy change. Therefore, we also consult governments on energy related issues.


The objective underlying the activities and deliberations of the think tank is to support regional, national and global transformations towards sustainability by framing, researching and disseminating positive narratives for economic growth and well-being of the population. Such transformation can only be fostered through conversations and partnerships between the top scientists, policy makers, businesses and civil societies coming together to map out informed, implementable and empowering policies based on collaborative scientific research.
