Launch of State Energy and Climate Index Round- 1 by NITI Aayog

Part of: GS-Prelims and GS-III: Energy

Context: Ranks the states’ performance on 6 parameters, namely

  1. DISCOM’s Performance
  2. Access, Affordability and Reliability of Energy
  3. Clean Energy Initiatives
  4. Energy Efficiency
  5. Environmental Sustainability
  6. New Initiatives

The parameters are further divided into 27 indicators. Based on the composite SECI Round I score, the states and UTs are categorized into three groups: Front Runners, Achievers, and Aspirants.

Way Forward

  • Synergy and partnership among the Centre and the States will be critical for achieving energy and climate-related goals and making the country self-reliant in the energy sector.
  • There is a need to develop a robust mechanism for capturing data so that it can be incorporated in future editions of the report.
  • There is a need to convert our efforts towards achieving the ‘Panchamrit’ targets into a peoples’ movement. In order to do this, the role of the States is going to be critical. Governance innovation and mutual learning by states shall go a long way in improving outcomes and SECI Round I is the right step in this direction.
  • Achieving the ambitious climate targets would require a conducive policy environment to encourage investment.
