A dynamic and flexible organization with a global vision and a local focus, TERI was established in 1974, with the initial focus on documentation and information dissemination. Research activities, initiated towards the end of 1982, were rooted in TERI’s firm conviction that efficient utilization of energy and sustainable use of natural resources would propel the process of development.

All activities in TERI, the largest developing-country institution working towards sustainability, move from formulating local- and national-level strategies to shaping global solutions to critical issues. Towards this end, we have established regional centres in Bengaluru, Goa, Guwahati, Mumbai and the Himalayas. We have also set up affiliate institutes – TERI-NA, Washington, DC, USA, and TERI Europe, London, UK – and also have a presence in Japan, Malaysia, and the UAE. We have also established a research base in Africa with an aim to both provide technical assistance as well as facilitate exchange of knowledge amongst the communities in various African states.

Buoyed by more than 40 years of excellence in research and innovation, TERI is now poised for future growth, driven by a global vision and outreach, with a philosophy that assigns primacy to enterprise in government, industry, and individual actions.
