Decarbonization in South Asia – Perspectives on the Electricity Grid, Industry, and Transportation

As South Asia is experiencing a significant growth in emissions due to increasing economic development, they are still poised to play a major role in designing a low-carbon future. This webinar provides an introduction to the South Asia Group for Energy, a regional context for decarbonization, and South Asia's decarbonization strategies in the power, transport, and industry sectors.

Modeling and Policy Pathways To Decarbonize South Asia's Industrial Sector

Modeling and Policy Pathways To Decarbonize South Asia’s Industrial Sector

The industrial sector is responsible for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions, and industrial decarbonization will be an essential component of limiting emissions and mitigating climate change (Rissman et al., 2020).

Decarbonization of the power sector has far-reaching impact into the further decarbonization of the economy. In many comprehensive decarbonization pathways proposed for the world and for India electrification of transportation, buildings, and industry is the principal solution to decarbonizing those sectors. Therefore, electricity grids are likely to grow as more and new loads are added to them, and this growth will necessarily be from non-carbon emitting resources. This report outlines several key challenges for the power sector in planning, research, and development towards a decarbonized electric power grid. While these challenges will continue to evolve, this report focuses on formulating the important questions for the next two decades to align planning timeframes of India's and South Asia's power sector stakeholders, and to offer near-term research solutions for preparing the datasets, building the models, and designing the studies to answer questions and prepare for these changes.

Air quality analysis and tools for policy

Air Quality Analysis and Tools for Policy

South Asia records some of the worst air pollution in the world, containing 84% of Asia’s most polluted cities. Particulate and gaseous emissions from various anthropogenic and natural sources contribute to poor air quality in the region, adversely affecting human health and the environment.
