This is a special publication from Power Line, the premier magazine for the Indian power sector. In the past, we had produced a similar publication, Energy South Asia, under USAID’s South Asian Regional Initiative/Energy.

Based on the response to Power Line South Asia, we may repeat it once a year, or with greater frequency.
