The most difficult part will be financing the support to the social costs of the fossil fuel transition. In India, this involves displacement risks and costs to the very large coal and thermal power sectors, with over a million workers, several hundred thousand formal employees, pensioners, trade union workers, and social services. Transition plans will need to be designed, by the countries themselves, to allow least social cost and capture significant co-benefits (air quality).

Power connections are now available nearly everywhere across rural India. However, there is a long way to go before people in villages reliably get uninterrupted electricity that can help them live and work better. In the interview, Dr Debajit Palit, Director, Rural Energy and Livelihoods Division, TERI, explains what is left to be done.

Our Journey Towards Energy Access Using Solar Domestic Systems in North-eastern India
January 26, 2021
| Dr Manjushree Banerjee
The rural households in Assam, in particular, those in the vicinity of forests and away from the main roads remain un-electrified. To overcome this challenge, the Numaligarh Refinery Limited along with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) initiated energy access measures in a phase wise manner since the year 2015. Based on need assessment in the villages, Solar Domestic Systems (SDS) with four light points, one mobile charging point and one portable solar lantern was installed in around 140 households. The SDS was able to provide lighting up to four hours in a day.
Bridging the last mile: Accelerating access to cooking energy in India

While 'fuel stacking'in the context of cooking energy is conventionally used more as an indication of progression along the fuel ladder, there is no reason for the rural users to restrict themselves to one primary cooking fuel or device only. The fuel stacking then may very well be thought of as using multiple clean fuels/devices, contingent upon requirements and convenience.
