Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: India energy efficiency. Publisher: Copenhagen Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency 2017Description: 74 p.: col. ill. Includes references.ISBN: 9788793458123.Subject(s): Energy sector | Energy - India | Climate change | Biogas plant - GujaratDDC classification: FP 333.70954 Online resources: e-Book Access Method: Summary: In terms of the future growth of energy and related greenhouse gas emissions, China and India stand out from other countries, due to their rapid economic development, large size, high population combined with rapid urbanization, and large industrial sectors. While paying necessary attention to the fact that economic growth is essential for reducing poverty and unemployment, and achieving other developmental goals, both countries have focused on decoupling energy use from economic growth, which in turn decouples greenhouse gas emissions from economic growth. In their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions submitted under the Paris Agreement, both countries have included strategies to pursue improved energy efficiency across the main sectors of their economies. The High Impact Opportunities studies that UNEP DTU Partnership has supported in China and India is an effort to engage national stakeholders, research institutions, and practitioners in the identification of good practices and the necessary priorities for enhancing energy efficiency in the future. The Report on Good Practices and Success Stories on Energy Efficiency in India assesses what has been achieved so far in different key sectors. Te study documents a variety of approaches that have succeeded across sectors. In a majority of cases, policies and regulations have been used to promote the technology. However, using policies to create a level playing field for different technologies has also been successful. The replication of these successes in India has been very positive so far but can be further scaled up. Moreover, these experiences can be used in other developing countries.
