Peaking and net-zero for India’s energy sector CO2 emissions: an analytical exposition

This CEEW study is the first-of-its-kind exercise to outline multiple pathways for India to attain net-zero emissions, rather than fixating on a single scenario or a single year. The study focuses on insights related to four alternative scenarios: 2030 peak–2050 net-zero, 2030 peak–2060 net-zero, 2040 peak–2070 net-zero, and 2050 peak–2080 net-zero. It also highlights that, for a rapidly developing economy, the choice of a peaking year must be explicit in selecting a net-zero year.
