Energy Efficiency-demo1

The electricity demand in the South Asia region has consistently grown by more than five percent annually, with projections suggesting it will more than double by 2050. Meeting this need will require countries on their net zero journey, the “Global Renewables and Energy Efficiency Pledge” requires countries to “double the global average annual rate of energy efficiency improvements from around 2% to over 4% every year until 2030.” India is on the path to reduce emission intensity of its economy by 45% by 2030. As per IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario, energy efficiency has the potential to abate 40% of the emissions by 2040.
