The project objective is to study the Economic Rate of Return (ERR) for various Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) in India. The study comprises determination of Financial Rate of Return (FRR) for various RETs (solar/wind/biomass/ small hydro etc.) based on primary research and estimation of ERR based on secondary research of socio-economic costs and benefits from each RET, e.g. savings in carbon emissions, local air pollution, avoided health impacts, employment generation etc.

Fine particulate matter is the pollutant of most concern in developing countries today on the basis of exposure, toxicity, and ambient concentrations. Two major contributors in transport to fine particulate air pollution are diesel vehicles and two-stroke engine gasoline vehicles. Due to strong motorization, India has become one of the biggest emitters of atmospheric pollutants. The country's fuel consumption in the transport sector has approximately doubled in every ten years since 1980.

India is blessed with 14 major, 55 minor and numerous small rivers. However, many of these rivers are polluted due to disposal of sewage into these water bodies. There is no sign of river pollution being stopped. It is increasing day by day. There are several sources of water pollution, which deteriorate the river water quality. Industries discharge their liquid waste products into rivers. Our agriculture practice that uses chemical fertilizers and pesticides also contribute to river pollution as rainwater drains these chemicals into the rivers.
