As part of a programme, Members of Parliament from six states visited the US University from October 28 to November 3.
"Hosted by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC-India) and the Climate Parliament, the visit was aimed at facilitating knowledge exchange to accelerate solutions for India's diverse energy challenges," the university said in a statement.
As part of a MoU, the EPIC-India and the Climate Parliament have been working towards preparing Indian lawmakers and enabling them to confront the various energy and environmental challenges, it said.
The delegation of Indian parliamentarians comprising Riti Pathak, Rakesh Singh and Sanjay Jaiswal of the BJP; Kalikesh N Singh Deo and Prabhas Kumar Singh of Biju Janata Dal; Vincent Pala of the Congress, Vandana Chavan of the NCP and Vivek Gupta of the All India Trinamool Congress met experts from various departments including the Booth School of Business, Harris School of Public Policy, at the university.
"It's been a wonderful experience and exposure for us and it is great to see the kind of evidence-based research that is going on, especially in the Indian context. A lot of that is extremely useful for us as policymakers and to the government," Kalikesh N Singh Deo, Lok Sabha member from Bolangir in Odisha, said.
