According to a recent census report, the population in Thane, India, has more than doubled in 20 years — from just over 800,000 in 1991 to more than 1.8 million in 2011. When India created its National Solar City Program to increase renewable energy use in its urban centers, Thane was named one of the first municipalities to lead the effort. During its January 2013 visit, the CEEP study team found the Thane community to be supportive of public-public partnerships for effective implementation of the city’s ‘Solar City Project’ through a sustainable energy utility based on the CEEP-initiated SEU model for providing bottom-up green energy investments.
