Description

The objective of this assignment is to compile all the data available related to the Indian building sector that will contribute towards providing a rough and critical estimation of the energy balance for the whole building sector and its sub-sectors. This compiled data would be analysed to (a) identify areas which have high potential for improvement in energy-efficiency; (b) identify stakeholders that can/are willing to play a major role in energy-efficiency in buildings, (c) identify business opportunities that can address the major barriers to energy-efficiency; (d) identify technically and financially feasible large-scale energy-efficiency programmes that can be implemented with support from ADEME/AFD/BEE in the Indian building sector.
This assignment includes the following tasks:

Overview of the building sector in India, and analysis of the energy savings potential;

Presentation of the main stakeholders;

Presentation of Indian policies and identification of barriers to energy efficiency;

Pre-identification of major stakeholders’ energy-efficiency programmes.
