More Energy, Lower Emissions

Wednesday, 20 October

6:15 pm - 6:45 pm (IST) / 20/oct/2021 12:45 pm - 20/oct/2021 01:15 pm

Although, India is the third largest consumer of energy in the world and the fourth largest emitter, its energy requirements in the coming years are bound to grow as per capita energy consumption is still far below the global average. Thus the dual challenge: how to fuel economic growth and bring people out of poverty with reliable, affordable, and secure energy, while reducing GHG emissions? While India is making good progress on renewable deployment, progress in other sectors is slow. What are some specific actions that can be taken to reduce emissions? What can Indian companies learn from IOCs and NOCs? What role do financial institutions have in accelerating the energy transition? Achieving any significant reduction in future emissions will not be feasible without addressing CO2 emissions from coal. How can India reduce emissions from coal?
