Publication Year: 2021
Author(s): The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), Shell
In this report, TERI and Shell have evaluated India’s current options and limits across each of the energy sectors and sub-sectors and assessed the technology and policy options that can help the country accelerate towards the goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. A Net-Zero Emissions (NZE) scenario has been developed in which the principle focus is to examine whether adequate opportunities exist to fully decarbonise the energy sector. Also, the areas where India’s energy sector does not have enough choices for full decarbonisation by 2050 have been highlighted.
This report is a comprehensive assessment of a net-zero emissions strategy for India’s energy system. The findings from this study encourage further deliberations on energy sub-sectors that could benefit policymakers and planners in charting India’s sustainable energy transition.
