The programme, to be implemented in five years, is an outcome of bilateral energy dialogue created by President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in November 2009 and will help to improve energy efficiency, increase the supply of renewable energy and adopt and accelerate deployment of cleaner fossil fuel technology. PACE-D will work to create an environment that strengthens institutions, increases the availability of innovative financing mechanisms and enhances local capacity to propagate clean energy solutions, said Ambassador Powell.
 
It will also improve access to energy through renewable sources and will assist India promote grid connected renewable energy, expand rural electrification through micro grids and develop off-grid applications, such as those for fossil fuel replacement, lighting and rooftop systems.

"This decentralized engagement will increase access to financing, develop sustainable business models and improve access to renewable energy," she said. She also announced the award of contract for implementing the programme to American consulting firm Nexant Inc., which has organised a consortium of both US and Indian partners to provide a range of services and expertise.
