About me

About

Mr. Uday Khemka is Vice-Chairman of the SUN Group of Companies, a diversified familyowned, investment and industrial group headquartered in India with activities in varied emerging markets in new and renewable energy, electric mobility, natural resources, real estate, electronics/aerospace and private equity. Prior to the SUN Group, Uday worked at Credit Suisse First Boston and Morgan Stanley in London and New York and then established and headed up Morgan Stanley's activities in India. Uday has been on the boards of all SUN Group companies and has been responsible for the establishment of the investment management activities of the group.

Today, Uday leads the New Energy activities of the Group which include renewable energy, energy storage and electric mobility energy infrastructure. His passion for New Energy led him to set up SUN New Energy Holdings, which today includes SUN Mobility (aiming to be a global leader in electric mobility energy infrastructure), in a partnership with Chetan Maini, as well as SUN Renewables.

Uday is also a managing trustee of The Nand & Jeet Khemka Foundation, the first, and still one of the only, foundations in India to focus centrally on climate change mitigation, which it has done for 30 years, since COP1 in Rio in 1992. He was also previously the Co-Chair of the Clean Energy Finance Forum (CEFF) jointly established by Prime Minister Modi and President Obama to catalyse investment towards India's 175 GW clean energy target for 2022. Among other climate philanthropic endeavours, Uday resourced the entry of the Climate Group into India and has been on its board ever since. Uday’s key policy interests focus on large scale
institutional climate finance (with respect to which he has been advising associations of sovereign and pension institutions since 2004), renewable energy policy and government policy to promote the electrification of transportation.

Uday’s philanthropic interests outside the field of climate change mitigation include his work as Co- founder of Just Giving (which became Europe’s leading online charity fundraising portal), his leadership of Youth Reach (focusing on street and slum children in India) and the Nabha Foundation (rural development in India).

Uday is on the Board of Governors of the Indian School of Business and the Public Health Foundation of India, the Board of Directors of the Synergos Institute in New York and the Board of Advisors of the Climate Group in India and has been elected a Young Global Leader at the World Economic Forum in Davos. He is also a member of HRH Prince’s Sustainable Markets Initiative and Senior Climate Advisor to the Institutional Investors Roundtable.

Educated at Eton College and Cambridge University, Uday received an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School (Baker Scholar).
