With nearly two decades of experience in the global energy sector, he brings demonstrated capabilities in program management, energy planning and modeling, strategic business planning, and policy advocacy. Gurpreet is a career consultant with vast expertise in industry and investment.
In one example of his work, Gurpreet supported six state governments (Assam, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Maharashtra) in the successful launch of comprehensive open-source energy sector models. Sponsored by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), he increased awareness of the advantages of analytics-based policymaking in the energy sector.
Gurpreet also helped the World Bank and Solar Energy Corporation of India in their first energy storage project in India—establishing the feasibility of a 160 MW wind-solar hybrid with energy storage in Andhra Pradesh.
Gurpreet is deeply involved in the natural gas sector as well. He supported the FCO in a project with the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, which focused on accelerating gas share in India’s energy mix. His team conducted a first-of-its-kind comprehensive gas stakeholders’ survey to identify the biggest issues constraining the growth of gas in India’s energy mix. The resulting recommendations included innovative business and regulatory models to support the development of the country’s gas market.
