About the Competition
The growth of the Energy Sector around the world is unprecedented, more specifically in India. The country with its existing resources and clear goals in place is making great strides towards its aspiration of transforming the energy sector.
With the growth of renewables, the energy efficiency in the country is said to break records. From dedicated policies to private participation to the expanded horizons of Power Purchase Agreements between energy providers and users have led to.
The Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), at the outset, have significant potential as an energy source. The Agreements are said to enhance power from renewable sources and overcome the paucity faced due to the use of traditional funding sources.
Over a period of time, PPA funding has expanded the solar capacity of various companies by ten times. Hence, the progress of such agreements has proven to be a framework of financial stability.
The Competition on the basis of the information seeks to engage with the community of law students in India to promote the art of modern legal drafting, in the less talked about areas of Energy Law. This aims at providing opportunities to the students to initiate research about legal certainties and further the skills of drafting.
The Competition is open to all undergraduate law students enrolled in any recognized educational institution within or outside India.
