Proposals are invited for the EJN Content Production & Distribution of Information to Build Awareness about Renewable Energy in India 2023. Internews’ Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is seeking to boost content production and distribution of information to build awareness about renewable energy in India, with a focus on Bihar, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.

Renewable Energy (RE) projects have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the ensuing global economic downturn. Challenges related to project financing, payment, regulations and evacuation infrastructure have added to the worries of RE developers. Still, the long-term prospects remain bright, as India seeks to install 500 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.

To improve public awareness about this issue, Earth Journalism Network is looking to provide fellowships to produce in-depth content on policy, financing, payment and infrastructure hurdles — and on effective strategies and solutions to overcome them.

Grant for Awareness about Renewable Energy

  • EJN will provide support, by way of remuneration, of approximately Rs 90,000 to each selected applicant, depending on the proposal and method of coverage, with some flexibility for in-depth and data-driven content using innovative and investigative approaches that may be more costly to produce.

Eligibility for Awareness about Renewable Energy

  • Proposals from all states in India are eligible, but proposals that shed light on the RE situation in Bihar, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh will be prioritized.
