Options for India's Climate Policy_CSTEP

  1. 1. Options for India’s Climate Policy Anshu Bharadwaj CSTEP, Bangalore February 18 – 20, 2015 Istanbul, Turkey
  2. 2. Background • United Nations Climate Change Conference Paris, 2015 – New agreement on climate change • India 3rd largest CO2 emitter – Per capita emissions low • US – China agreement – US: Reduce emissions by 26 – 28% by 2030 – China: Peak emissions by 2030, 20% of energy from fossil free sources
  3. 3. Problem Statement: • What could be India’s options in the Paris COP? • How to meet India’s development aspirations in Carbon constrained world? • Can India carve an alternate developmental path?
  4. 4. Sustainable Development Approach: • Inclusivity: – Cost effective electricity for all • Energy Security: – Not vulnerable to fuel supply disruptions • Environment: – Reduce pollutant emissions (NOx, SO2, PM)
  5. 5. Power Sector Model (TIMES) • Resource: – Resource availability – Domestic production capacity: Coal, Uranium, Gas • Costs: – Cost trajectories of Energy technologies – Cost trajectories of Fuels • Environment: – Limits on Pollutant emissions – Cost of Pollutant Control technologies (SO2, PM, NOx) • Load Curves: – Hourly demand and supply curve – Intermittency of renewable sources

  7. 7. Conclusions: • Significant deployment of fossil free sources – 40% Electricity from Fossil free sources (23% at present) – 20% Electricity from Renewables (6% at present) • Driven by Inclusivity, Energy Security, Environment – No restriction on CO2 emissions – Lowering of CO2 achieved as Co Benefit • Alternate development paradigm for developing countries • India’s distinctive contribution to Paris COP
