The transition to clean energy required to prevent temperatures from rising swiftly could shave 2% off global GDP by 2050 but is likely recoverable before the end of the century, a report by natural resources consultancy Wood Mackenzie said.

High and volatile liquefied natural gas (LNG) prices are an opportunity for India’s gas-dependent industries and the city gas distribution network to switch to cleaner, non-fossil fuel alternatives like biogas and biomethane, says a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).This will also avoid locking the

This paper applies WRI’s 'Framework to Assess the Sustainable Development Impacts of Renewable Power Technologies' to estimate the economic rate of return (ERR) associated with prominent renewable energy (RE) technologies in three Indian states: Maharashtra, Jharkhand, and Assam.

An energy system centred on renewable energy can help resolve many of Africa’s social, economic, health and environmental challenges. A profound energy transition is not only feasible, it is essential for a climate-safe future in which sustainable development prerogatives are met.

The year 2021 placed exceptional demands on electricity markets around the world. Strong economic growth, combined with more extreme weather conditions than in 2020, including a colder than average winter, boosted global electricity demand by more than 6% – the largest increase since the recovery from the financial crisis in 2010.

Under the Paris Agreement and COP26, countries enhanced their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and declared ambitious mitigation pledges such as net zero. Despite making a sizeable difference to greenhouse gas emissions and global temperature rise, we still need to set the world on a climate-safe pathway.

Decentralised renewable energy solutions linked to livelihoods is an important step in maximising the benefits of energy access for socio-economic development.

Phasing out fossil fuels is critical to global efforts to tackle climate change, but actions to curb emissions are hindered by protections granted under international investment law. This report analyzes the extent to which investor–state disputes protect foreign investments in fossil fuel projects—and therefore obstruct climate action.

This working paper explores two climate policy packages or scenarios for India corresponding to differing medium- and long-term decarbonization objectives using the India Energy Policy Simulator (EPS), an open-source, systems dynamics model.

The Ministry of Power through a notification dated 20th December, 2021 has issued the draft Electricity (Late Payment Surcharge and related matters) Rules, 2021.
