Impact of Large Scale Energy Efficiency Programs On Consumer Tariffs and Utility Finances in India

From Open Energy Information

The objective of this paper is to analyze the effect on utility finances and consumer tariffs of implementing utility-funded cost-effective energy efficiency (EE) programs in India. The state of Delhi is used as a case study. A number of studies have demonstrated that end-use EE improvements in the Indian electricity sector has large potential for reducing power shortages, which would enhance the country’s energy security and could play a crucial role in India’s climate change mitigation plan.
