TECHNICAL TOUR: THE ENERGY AND RESOURCES INSTITUTE

The resource-efficient TERI retreat for environmental awareness and training is located at Gual Pahari, about 35 km from the heart of India’s capital, Delhi. Covering an area of 36.5 hectares of carefully planned and landscaped surroundings, this originally barren space is today a lush green ecosystem that stands out as a model of sustainable habitat.

The Energy and Resources Institute (www.teriin.org) is a leading think tank dedicated to conducting research for sustainable development of India and the Global South. Established in 1974 as an information centre on energy issues, it has transformed into a research institute known for its policy and technology solutions aimed to enrich and radically reorient people's lives and the environment.

The TERI retreat at Gual Pahari integrates various forms of renewable energy sources, has adopted energy efficient building designs, re-uses generated wastes and sets an example for architects, builders, and others for the promotion of sustainable living as a philosophy.

Warm in winter and cool in summer, naturally well-lit all year round, richly endowed with flora and fauna and only marginally dependent on grid-fed electricity, TERI Retreat at Gual Pahari welcomes interested delegates from the 4th 3RINCs Conference.
