This issue brief presents the case for natural gas pyrolysis as an alternative method of hydrogen production. Incumbent ‘grey’ hydrogen production by steam methane reformation (SMR) inherently produces process CO₂ emissions, as the carbon in natural gas is converted to CO₂.

The Indo-Pacific is home to 4.3 billion people – more than half of humanity. Studies indicate that the Indo-Pacific could meet ~90 per cent of its power demand using renewables such as solar and wind, but this needs a clear and defined vision for its energy future.

India has charted ambitious goals for its energy transition. These include achieving 50% cumulative electric power installed capacity from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources. Additionally, it has committed to reducing the emissions intensity of its GDP by 45% (compared to 2005 levels), also by 2030.

This policy brief conducts a deep dive into Kochi’s three-wheeler (3W) market to chart a strategy for a 100 per cent electrification of the fleet.

This issue brief explores solutions for managing the fuel tax revenue loss from the electric vehicle (EV) transition in India, without impeding the EV transition. It estimates fuel tax revenue losses and evaluates alternative taxation options for governments to recover these losses.

This study analyses the extent to which data and information on safely managed drinking water services are reported in India. Such data is characterised by access to the improved source of drinking water that is located on the premises, available when needed, and free from faecal and priority chemical contamination.

This issue brief outlines the contours of a sourcing strategy for India to secure access to critical non-fuel minerals for either sectoral or economy-wide requirements, using the case study of the indigenisation of battery energy storage manufacturing to illustrate various facets.

This issue brief examines the urgency to address loss and damage and its associated impacts. It highlights the different perspectives to understand loss and damage and discusses the fundamental gaps and challenges surrounding the issue.

This study is a first of its kind and it reviews and analyses the impact of the regulatory treatment of the Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY) debt takeover on distribution companies (discoms) and consumers under two approaches: Approach A examines the regulatory treatment by state electricity regulatory commissions (SERCs) and Approach B look

This study performs a comparative analysis of the two existing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) methodologies , Capacity-Building Assessment Matrix (CBAM) and Greenhouse Gas Inventories (GHGI) Capacity Indices , both of which aim at undertaking quantitative assessments of capacity-building efforts for climate reporting aspects.
