Last November, Will Clayton Fellow in International Economics Russell Green, Ph.D., was interviewed about India's energy shortages and chronic power blackouts for a story in PM Network, published by the Project Management Institute.
From 2007 to 2011, Green served as the U.S. Treasury Department"s financial attaché to India. Though the country's power grid is government owned, the state-operated facilities often lack the funding to build or maintain power plants. "State electrical boards don't want to raise tariffs because it's political unpopular, so many states have dug themselves into deep financial holes," Green says.
