SPEAKER

Christopher Beaton

Christopher Beaton is Lead, Sustainable Energy Consumption with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD, www.iisd.org). For over a decade, across many countries, Christopher has worked on the role that government support plays in energy transition: mapping support policies for fossil fuels and clean energy; evaluating the impact of different support policies; and, where necessary, identifying strategies for socially responsible and politically viable reforms, in particular for fossil fuel subsidies.

In India, this includes a multi-year initiative to improve transparency on energy subsidies (https://www.iisd.org/gsi/mapping-india-energy-subsidies-data/) and a diverse range of projects in areas such as targeting electricity and LPG subsidies, implementing solar irrigation schemes sustainably and how to effectively support the manufacturing of solar PV and electric vehicles.
