The event, focused on energy transition and climate change, offered opportunities to engage with a diverse audience of energy professionals, forging purposeful connections, fostering collaborations, and exchanging knowledge and insights that will be integral in shaping the future of the energy landscape including energy transition in this part of the world. 

As part of the IEFK programme, a panel discussion focused on “Societal Impact through eCooking Transition” was held on 8th February 2024 at Tagore Theatre, Trivandrum, Kerala.
