This paper highlights the challenges involved in accurately identifying and classifying for tradestatistics purposes many of the energy-ef?cient goods used in the buildings sector.

This paper, prepared in support of the Major Economies Forum (MEF) Global Partnership by the International Energy Agency, seeks to inform decision making and prioritisation of RD&D investments and other policies to accelerate low-carbon energy technologies in the MEF and IEA member countries and others by providing three primary sets of information: estimated current levels of public RD&D spendin

The report, "Environmental and Energy Sustainability: An Approach for India", identified clean power and energy-efficiency measures as having the largest potential impact on emissions, with the capability to reduce CO2 output 28 to 34 per cent by 2030.

In India, there are several norms, regulations, codes and standards to establish energy efficient buildings that have been evolved by various ministries and government bodies. The MNRE invited consultants to bid for an assignment which shall harmonize various energy efficiency and renewable energy related codes/standards/ norms and guidelines for buildings and larger habitats.

The residents of Erathna area staged a protest in front of a worksite of the proposed private hydro power plant with a capacity of 6.5 kilowatts on the banks of the Kuruganga at Lassakanda.

This study of sectoral energy sector in India provides sector, country and ultimately global analysis of energy use patterns at the level of subsectors and end uses.Finds that electricity consumption is expected to increase fast, driven by the demand of the residential and commercial sectors that add to the already increasing demand from the industry sector.

The IEA projects global primary energy demand could grow by 55% from 2005 to 2030, raising serious energy security and environmental sustainability concerns. How will we meet energy demand? How will we mitigate the resulting 57% increase in carbon dioxide emissions?

The aim of this paper is to describe and analyse current approaches to encourage energy efficiency in building codes for new buildings. Based on this analysis the paper enumerates policy recommendations for enhancing how energy efficiency is addressed in building codes and other policies for new buildings. This paper forms part of the IEA work for the G8 Gleneagles Plan of Action.

The Indian plate is underthrusting the Eurasian plate by 4 to 5 centimetres a year. But our scientists move even slower. Are they waiting for the Big One to come, again without warning?
