  • India needs long-term energy planning: study

    20 June 2007| Hindustan Times

    India needs to pursue an integrated approach to energy planning as high economic growth equaling or exceeding eight per cent would create much larger demand for energy in the next few decades, a study has said. The study titled 'A National Energy Map for India: Technology Vision 2030' by TERI estimates alternative trajectories of energy requirements and examines the likely fuel mix for the country under various resource and technological constraints. It said pressure on the three conventional energy forms coal, oil and gas will continue to remain high in India in the next few decades even if the contribution of hydro, nuclear, and renewable energy increases significantly.

  • Commercially viable wind power still some way off

    18 June 2007| Business Standard

    India may plan aggressively to harness wind power-it was one of the five countries of the world that added more than 1,000 Mw capacity in 2006-07-but the downsides of this form of energy in terms of high capital costs and unpredictability of wind may ensure that it plays a marginal role. Environmentalists across the world favour wind energy over fossil fuel. Wind is an inexhaustible resource and has zero emission, said Mr Shirish S Garud, TERI. "India has a wind power potential of 20,000 Mw for immediate exploitation and you don't have to import wind from the West Asia because it is freely available," he added.

  • Biomass gasifier: Gas emitted can be used for cooking

    18 June 2007| The Tribune

    Agricultural waste can be converted to fuel with the help of biomass gasifier. The gas generated by converting agricultural waste through biomass gasifier can be used for cooking and even for running furnaces of small and medium industries. This was stated at a business meet organized by TERI and Chanderpur Works in association with the Yamunanagar district's renewable energy department for the promotion of biomass gasifier applications.

  • DDA organizes workshop on energy efficient buildings

    18 June 2007| The Hindu

    The Delhi Development Authority in association with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency and TERI organized a two-day orientation workshop on energy efficient buildings. At the workshop, experts shed light and shared ideas on not only keeping energy consumption to the minimum at the time of construction, but also designing energy efficient buildings.

  • TERI's Green Olympiad to see more participants

    17 June 2007| Indian Express

    Started by TERI, the Green Olympiad had some 3000 students participants from ten cities in 1999. This year, however, the organizers expect around 60,000 students from 1500 Indian schools in 350 cities encompassing India, West Asia, Russia, Nepal, Bhutan, Malaysia and Singapore to participate in the Olympiad. Apart from being a prestigious competition, the Green Olympiad has also developed into an analytical tool, which the institute uses to gauge the understanding of the environment among students.

  • Efficient CO2 pricing could lead to significant emission cuts

    16 June 2007| The Hindu

    Putting a price on carbon dioxide could lead to less emission of greenhouse gas and help to solve global warming, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr R K Pachauri, said. "An efficient carbon-pricing signal could realize significant mitigation potential in all sectors," said Dr Pachauri at an open symposium on energy and environment held in Okinawa of southern Japan. Policies that provide a real or implicit price of carbon could create incentives for producers and consumers to significantly invest in products, technologies and processes of which the greenhouse gas emissions are low, Dr Pachauri said.

  • Countering climate change

    15 June 2007| The Hindu Business Line

    In a country where lakhs of farmers depend on agriculture for livelihood, the aberrations in climate would have disastrous consequences if the authorities do not get serious about reductions in noxious emissions that affect the climate. As the Director-General, TERI and Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Dr R K Pachauri, aptly says, even while working in concert with other developing countries for consistent and principled stands to require the developed world to take adequate mitigation measures, India and other developing countries should adopt "no-regret measures", such as improving energy efficiency, greater use of renewable energy and structural shifts towards public transport, and more energy-efficient housing.

  • Boats offer greener ride off Gateway

    12 June 2007| Times of India

    Around 40 boat owners at the Gateway of India have started adding biodiesel to the fuel they use, reducing pollution by at least 20%. Carbon monoxide levels came down by around 40% and carbon dioxide reduced by 25%, according to readings obtained by TERI, which conceptualized the project to demonstrate the potential of renewable energy sources like biodiesel and solar energy in marine applications. The project was funded by BPCL.

  • Energy conservationists warn against buildings with glass facades

    12 June 2007| Zee News

    As the country faces acute power shortage and global warming debate hots up, energy conservationists caution against growing number of buildings with glass facades dotting the landscapes of cities as being responsible for energy consumption much in excess a normal structure would do. Real estate developers, however refute this as incorrect. According to TERI, which has done extensive study on glass building and energy consumption, the proper or optimal use of glass can cut down on energy demands by at least 10 to 15 per cent of a normal building.
