What India needs to do to achieve net-zero status by 2070

The recent IPCC report that came out in the month of March 2022 says that, by the end of the century, the temperature rise is likely to be 2 to 3.7 degrees if global emissions, as they stand today, are not curtailed. In fact, according to the report, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions need to come down by 45 percent globally (compared with 2005) by the end of 2030. And current trends show that the reduction is falling quite short, as the total impact of all the nationally determined contributions put together is still not more than 11 percent.
Improving energy efficiency of power plants

The target should be that we achieve a major shift in getting decentralised generation in villages going below the one-megawatt level and we can only get that if we have a feed-in tariff regime. So, the DISCOMs saves money because of low delivery cost, the country saves on transmission investments, and the village gets reliable supply. This creates a huge efficiency gain there and a much easier market-based achievement of the target of 450,000 megawatts.
Improving Power Plant Energy Efficiency

Thermal power plants are heavily affected by downward revisions in electricity demand, and its use in industry is tempered by lower economic activity. Coal phase-out policies, the rise of renewables, and competition from natural gas lead to part-load operating and the retirement of 275 gigawatts of coal-fired capacity worldwide by 2025 (13% of the total). To limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, the world would need to transform in several complex and connected ways.

To develop a roadmap for making Indian refractory sector energy and resource efficient, Bureau of Energy Efficiency has picked Andhra Pradesh among other states to initiate a study of energy efficiency potential in refractory clusters, which are among the energy-intensive micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) sub-sectors. TERI has been entrusted with the job to conduct the study.

TERI has launched a "first-of-its-kind" pilot project here to support implementation of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) at the distribution level, aimed at reducing stress on transformers during peak hours. The research institute, with support from MacArthur Foundation, kick started the project in collaboration with the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (WBSEDCL). For implementation of the pilot project, TERI would act as project management consultant to WBSEDCL and Department of Power, West Bengal.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has been commended by Mr R K Singh, India’s Minister for Power and New and Renewable Energy, on its contribution to global energy analysis and the substantive progress it is making to ‘open its doors’ to emerging countries. During a recent visit to New Delhi, Dr Fatih Birol, the IEA’s executive director focused on the increasing role of India in the global energy market, highlighting the country’s efforts in boosting electrification, rapidly improving its energy efficiency, and reducing costs of solar PV and wind power.
