Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: This paper analyses what is possible as a low carbon scenario for India using India Energy Security Scenarios-2047 tool developed by the erstwhile Planning Commission and later refined by its successor NITI Aayog. The paper elaborates the multiple policy interventions that are needed to achieve these objectives. It finds that there is scope for a low carbon growth path, which would greatly reduce the level of emissions, compared to a business as usual projection for the same growth rate of GDP.
