On July 11th, 2007 at 3pm Young India, Inc. is co-sponsoring a Congressional
briefing on Capitol Hill with the Congressional India Caucus to explore how
India and the United States can more broadly use energy cooperation that not
only builds a sustainable relationship but also allows them to make a collective
contribution towards climate change. Last year we held a similar exploratory
briefing on the Indo-US nuclear deal to understand it in the energy context
of both nations. The upcoming briefing is a continuation of our search for
the best set of energy policies that will provide new strength to bilateral
relations through new entrepreneurship, research and development and greater
This briefing is more than a philosophical discussion of intent. It will
offer actionable steps that both governments can take to facilitate and incentivize
alternative energy production and distribution methods. The building of a
model of cooperation between India and the United States on alternative energy
can help other emerging economies do the same with the developed ones. Thus,
creating a more inclusive and coordinated effort to help us fight this global
challenge - climate change. This may be a way to transform a "strategic"
relationship into a sustainable one.
Please join us for this event. The expert presentations will be followed
by a Q&A session.
We are grateful to Congressman Jim McDermott (D, WA-7) and Congressman Joe
Wilson (R, SC-2), co-chairs of the Congressional India Caucus, for their continued
support to our efforts. This briefing was jointly conceptualized by Mr. Sean
Hughes, Senior Legislative Assistant to Congressman McDermott, with Young
India. Cooperation from Mr. Dino Teppara, Chief of Staff for Congressman Wilson
and Mr. Paul Callahan, Legislative Assistant to Congressman Wilson, was instrumental
in putting this event together.
