The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is an independent, not-for-profit research   organisation   deeply  committed  to  every  aspect  of  energy, environment,     and     sustainable     development.     From    providing environment-friendly solutions to rural energy problems, to helping shape the  development  of  the  Indian  oil and gas sector; from tackling global climate   change   issues   across  many  continents  to  enhancing  forest conservation  efforts  among local communities; from advancing solutions to growing urban transportation and air pollution problems to promoting energy efficiency  in  Indian  industries, the emphasis has always been on finding innovative  solutions  to  make  the  world  a better place to live in. All activities   at   TERI  move  from  formulating  local  and  national–level strategies  to  suggesting  global  solutions  tackling critical energy and environment related issues.

Headed  by  Dr.  R.K.  Pachauri,  also  the  chairperson of the Nobel Prize winning  body,  IPCC,  TERI has emerged as an institution of excellence for its  path-breaking  research,  and  is  a  global brand widely respected by political  leaders,  policy makers, corporate entities as well as the civil society at large.
