The supply of sustainable energy is one of the main challenges that mankind will face over the coming decades, particularly because of the need to address climate change. Biomass can make a substantial contribution to supplying future energy demand in a sustainable way.

The Renewable Energy for Rural Livelihoods (RERL) project tries to demonstrate the use of renewable sources of energy in reducing poverty through improved quality of life and increased livelihood opportunities in remote, non-electrified villages of India that are not likely to get electricity from the grid.

This book provides relevant information on the significant opportunities that bio-carbon can offer to Eastern and Southern Africa countries to participate in the carbon market, it compiles eleven papers relating specific aspects of the bio-carbon sector.

In this study, we have used multi-satellite data to retrieve aerosol loadings and carbon monoxide (CO) pollution over the Arabian Sea, caused due to anthropogenic activities over the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) in India. Relatively high aerosol and CO loadings during 9

India has been arguing that it (and the rest of the developing world) should incur no expense in controlling emissions that cause climate change.

Atmospheric aerosols (a mixture of solid or liquid particles suspended in the air medium) are short-lived, with a residence time of about a week in the lower troposphere. Unlike the principal greenhouse gases, aerosols are more concentrated in the source regions and exhibit strong spatial and temporal variations.

With their focus on greenhouse gases, atmospheric scientists have largely overlooked lowly soot particles. But black carbon is now a hot topic among researchers and politicians. Jeff Tollefson investigates.

The MNRE had sanctioned the Saradi test project in January 2006. The project has been implemented by UBB (Uttarakhand Biofuel Board), Dehradun and coordinated and monitored by UREDA (Uttarakhand Renewable Energy Development Agency), Dehradun.
