Blueprint for Improving Energy Efficiency in India

June 16, 2006 - 12:00pm

Indian economic growth is averaging 8%, and is projected to reach double-digit growth rates. The Indian energy requirements are likely to grow at 6% vis-a-vis the world growth rate of 2%.  India has limited energy reserves, and seeks to increase its energy efficiency with contemporary technologies. The higher economic growth has been achieved with limited electricity supply implying higher productivity, which needs to be investigated carefully. The country seeks carbon finance through CDM projects. It has launched an Energy Dialogue in close collaboration with the US DOE and is participating in the Asia Pacific Partnership (APP) with six countries including the US. This talk will describe India's energy needs, potential sources for meeting them, and challenges in the road ahead that require the development of a Blueprint for Energy Efficiency for adoption by India.
