India-Options for Low Carbon Development
"The India study includes the development of a detailed, bottom-up, modeling framework, that serves to comment on opportunities for low carbon growth. Input data was collected across several sectors covering: power supply, household appliances, transportation, industry, and buildings. The study has also developed a cross-country comparison of India’s CO2 performance; reviewed clean coal power generation technology, GHG emissions from the creation of hydropower reservoirs and residential consumption of electricity; and a cost-effectiveness assessment of GHG mitigation options. India’s study also explores CO2 mitigation potential of grid-supplied thermal power generation expansion, options for scaling up carbon finance, and gridconnected electricity supply options."
