Strengthening India’s Position in Climate Change Negotiations

The authors respond to three main issues raised by Navroz K Dubash and Radhika Khosla in their article “Recovering Key Strategic Concepts in India’s Climate Policy” (EPW, 9 April 2016).

Paris Agreement

The Paris Agreement on Climate Change has reiterated the principle of Common but Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities, but has not referred to historical responsibility. How important is historical responsibility and what does it imply? How is one going to differentiate without historical responsibility? What would be India's responsibility? How do India's Intended Nationally Determined Contribution targets compare with its responsibility?

Demand Side Management in Power Planning-An Exercise for HT Industries in Maharashtra

India needs to seriously consider demand side management (DSM) options to meet the growing electricity requirements. In this paper a DSM plan is chalked out for the high tension (HT) industries in Maharashtra. Ten different DSM options have been considered. Technology characteristics have been obtained from manufacturers arid end-use analysis is based on the IGIDR-HT survey. Market penetration of DSM options has been modelled using a diffusion curve. Programme costs have been included for each DSM option.

Rural Energy System and Agriculture-Alternative Scenarios for Gujarat

Rural Energy System and Agriculture Alternative Scenarios for Gujarat J P Painuly Jyoti K Parikh D R Shah This article examines rural enemy scenarios in a system's framework. The linkages between food, fodder, fuel and fertiliser have been considered in a consistent framework while examining the effects of various policies on rural energy system. Model considers policies such as increased fuel efficiency, increased feeding of livestock, increased fertiliser use, HYV adoption on a larger scale, relative price changes {between fuel, feed and fertilisers), etc, for a time horizon up to 2000.

From DEFENDUS to Consensus

From 'DEFENDUS' to Consensus Jyoti K Parikh 'A DEVELOPMENT-Focused End-Use Oriented Electricity Scenario for Karnataka' published recently1,2 offers three major suggestions, viz, (a) Integrating energy- conservation options in supply planning, (b) Consideration of decentralised energy options with 26,000 rural energy centres, and (c) Development focus while giving electricity connections.

Are Our Industries Energy Efficient

Are Our Industries Energy Efficient ? Jyoti K Parikh Arun K Chaitanya The industry sector is the single largest consumer of commercial energy. Therefore to understand why energy requirements per unit value added are higher in India than in the other countries or even in India earlier, it is important to look at the product-mix and industrial uses to which energy is put and the technologies employed in production.
