This research provides the evidence base which confirms what we have long suspected – that there are more fossil fuels listed on the world’s capital markets than we can afford to burn if we are to prevent dangerous climate change.

This paper computes national carbon mitigation costs using two simple principles: Incremental costs for low-carbon energy investments are calculated using the cost of coal-fired power as the benchmark.  All low-carbon energy sources are counted, because reducing carbon emissions cannot be separated from other concerns: reducing local air pollution from fossil-fuel combustion; diversifying

NTPC Ltd has announced the commissioning of its first supercritical unit of 660 MW on Tuesday at its Sipat project in Chhattisgarh.

Climate change is recognised as one of the most significant threats to development during the 21st Century and beyond.  Infrastructure policymakers and practitioners have a crucial role to play in meeting the challenge of climate change in the developing word.  This applies both to mitigation, i.e.

Carbon Fat Cats 2011 sets out the analysis of those companies profiting most from Europe’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). The results matter because of their bearing on a crucial debate being held in Europe and the wider world – a debate about how to respond to profound challenges created by the economic dependence on fossil fuels, in particular the threat to a stable climate.

The ‘expert group on low carbon strategies for inclusive growth’ which was set up under the Planning Commission to develop a strategy for India’s 12th Five Year Plan has released its interim report recently. While this interim report echoes the earlier govt.

This document contains summary sheet of low carbon economy on Poverty reduction. Low carbon development can potentially contribute to poverty reduction by improving access to affordable clean energy by the poor and to sustainable agriculture.

This document contains summary sheet on transport in a low carbon economy.

This document contains summary sheet of low carbon development and cities. Cities and urban areas contain most of the productive and consumptive activities that are contributing to climate change. Indeed, almost all growth, both demographic and economic, is now occurring in and around urban settlements.
