Ceest foundation is an independent research institution whose objectives are to undertake research and studies in areas related to energy, environment, science and technology. We have a massive experience in the above areas in particular technology and policy related research and studies in energy and environment, Environmental impact assessment (EIA) in energy, mining, etc, policy and technical/technological studies and advice in energy, mining, water resources and environment, Climate change studies and research, etc.

The Centre for Energy, Environment, Science and Technology (CEEST Foundation) was incorporated on 5th November 1992 as a Non-Governmental Organization. The idea to form the Foundation arose out of the realization of the need for an institution, which would look at issues of energy development, environmental protection, natural resource use and Management, and the development and use of science and technology in a holistic and balanced manner. The aim is to attempt to explore and exploit synergies and possible multiplier effects in order to complement efforts of other institutions and individuals as our countries strive to overcome backwardness and poverty.

The first year of the CEEST Foundation was mainly used in laying the foundation for the Foundation’s Activities. In the following years the Foundation had to face challenges of the times and through the support of many people (including associates), collaborating institutions and its dedicated staff it has expanded its activities. The Foundation has been able to accomplish a number of research assignments, consultancies and studies as highlighted in coming sections. It has also organized and/or participated in a number of workshops and seminars.
