About the Institute

The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG), Government of India, set up the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology at Jais, Amethi, Uttar Pradesh, by an Act of the Parliament. The institute has accorded the status of an Institution of National Importance along with the lines of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). The institute is empowered to award degrees in its own right and is co-promoted as an energy domain specific institute by six leading oil public sector units (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Oil India Limited, Gail (India) Limited, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited) in association with the Oil Industry Development Board. The institute is associated with the leading International Universities/Institutions specializing in the domain of Petroleum Technology and Energy Sector.

The prime objective of the institute is to provide excellent education, training, and research to roll out efficient human resources, and to meet the growing requirements of the Petroleum and Energy industry. The institute is offering a number of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Programmes, Postgraduate Diploma Courses and Doctoral Programmes in Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Management.


About Management Studies

Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology was conceived through an act of Parliament to satisfy the growing demand of proficient workforce in the Petroleum & Energy sector. The focus at RGIPT is to develop human resource that hits the ground running.

What makes our MBA unique is the active participation of the leading Oil Companies in academic activities. Their constant guidance and knowledge sharing results in an enriching learning experience for the students of the Department of Management Studies.

The student-faculty ratio ensures that every student receives personal attention by enabling one-to-one interaction as well. The relationship is less like that of a student and a professor and more like a working group where everybody learns & grows together.

Together we endeavor to find out more about the various functional areas of management and the industry while striving for solutions to issues confronting the sector.


About the Seminar

Climate change has become the most critical challenge before mankind. It has become imperative that we change our energy mix to ensure reduced carbon emission and promoting sustainable development. India is the world's fourth biggest emitter of carbon dioxide after China, the US and the EU. However, the per capita carbon emission in India is still very low. Nonetheless, keeping in mind the need to take urgent action for preservation of the environment, the Indian Government has committed to Net Zero by 2070.

Net zero and energy transition are two critical components of achieving sustainable development. Net zero refers to the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere, which is achieved by reducing emissions and/or increasing carbon removal. Energy transition, on the other hand, refers to the shift away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy sources.

The goal of achieving net zero emissions is essential to mitigate the impact of climate change and limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, as outlined in the Paris Agreement. To achieve this goal, countries, businesses, and individuals must take action to reduce emissions through various measures, such as transitioning to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, implementing carbon capture and storage, and shifting to low-emission transportation.

The energy transition is an essential component of achieving net zero emissions. The world is heavily reliant on fossil fuels for energy production, which accounts for a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions. Shifting to renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydro, and geothermal power can significantly reduce emissions while promoting sustainable development.

In addition to reducing emissions and promoting sustainable development, net zero and energy transition can also lead to economic benefits. The transition to renewable energy sources can create jobs and promote economic growth while reducing energy costs and improving energy security.

Overall, achieving net zero emissions and transitioning to renewable energy sources is essential for promoting sustainable development, mitigating the impacts of climate change, and creating a more prosperous and sustainable future for all.

The aim of this Conference is to highlight the issues related to achievement of Net Zero by 2070 and identifying ways to ensure smoother energy transition.
