With the rapid expansion in coal-based power generation in India, the sector’s coal consumption had almost doubled between 2006- 07 and 2017-18; so had its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. India’s coal-based power sector accounts for approximately 2.4 per cent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, one-third of India’s GHG emissions, and around 50 per cent of the country’s fuelrelated emissions.
Experts opine that despite the growth in renewable power, coal-based power will continue to play a crucial role in India’s energy security, with the capacity expected to rise from 205 GW in 2020 to 266 GW in 2030. Beset with problems ranging from poor quality coal to slow progress on technical and institutional reforms, India’s coal power sector is one of the most inefficient in the world. But there is huge scope of reducing the sector’s CO2 emissions footprints and, in turn, augment its climate change mitigation potential.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to participate in a webinar and online release of its new report on the subject of reducing CO2 footprints of India’s coal-based power sector.
