This grant builds on a previous grant that culminated in the Hewlett China coal strategy paper. The purpose of this follow-up grant is to help Hewlett grantees in China working on coal to refine and evaluate the strategy. It seeks to develop a strategic power map of future opportunities to work more directly on slowing the growth of coal-fired power and industrial energy resources in China. Currently, China depends on coal to provide 70 percent of its energy, and it has been the engine for the nation’s rapid economic growth over the past decade. The grant will enable Hewlett grantees to more effectively develop joint strategies in different venues.

for electric mobility initiative in India
World Resources Institute (WRI) is actively engaged in various geographies to produce relevant e-mobility research and provide deep technical assistance that supports stakeholders in delivering results. WRI’s electric mobility initiative in India has been working extensively with the Indian government and various state governments on developing the EV ecosystem and contributing to India’s strengthened commitment to the e-mobility transition. This grant will allow WRI to continue to support this transition and work closely at the subnational level with state governments to support the planning and implementation of EV initiatives, provide necessary technical assistance and enable capacity development within government departments, and facilitate collaborations between public and private sector stakeholders.
