Type of publication:

India has been working on the issue of its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions over the previous many years. A major study in this direction was the 2006 Report of the Expert Committee on India’s Integrated Energy Policy, which estimated the carbon dioxide generation profile of India’s energy sector up to 2031-32 under 11 different scenarios of fuel mix. India’s Ministry of Environment & Forests has also been supporting a number of organizations undertaking studies on India’s GHG emissions profile. These institutions include The Energy & Resources Institute (TERI), the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER), Integrated Research and Action for Development (IRADe), and Jadavpur University. McKinsey and Company have also been doing a separate study on this subject. This Report brings together the results of the work of these institutions, a total of five separate studies.
