Designing a Development-Focused, Co-Benefits Based Approach
This study provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas emissions in seven major emitting countries up to 2030
This CPR report reviews seven recent energy and climate studies to critically evaluate estimates of future Indian CO2 emissions, energy use and economic impacts.
This preliminary assessment tries to estimate the cost of global climate change impacts for India. The study aims at estimating first order costs for loss in agriculture productivity and impact on higher power generation requirement with increasing temperatures within a long term global integrated assessment modelling framework. The study also attempts to put a value on the health impacts from temperature rise. The analysis highlights some important results…
This OIES paper analyses whether or not recent reforms to the pricing of domestic gas could potentially change the Indian gas landscape by making price signals clearer
Adaptation is necessary to manage the risks posed by climate change. Rising to the Call is a collection of stories from all over India about the nature of extreme weather events experienced, how communities are responding and successful adaptation practices emerging out of these experiences. It studies the impacts and replicability of the different approaches to adaptation and brings out valuable insights for developing countries in the region and beyond.
“The distinct and diverse energy realities that characterize India necessitate a more detailed examination of the country’s energy situation. A multi-sector and multi-issue analysis that takes cognizance of the tugs and pulls that India’s energy policy is subject to is essential. It is with this objective that the Energy Security Outlook examines issues pertinent to India’s energy security…”
This OIES paper investigates the impacts of gasoline and diesel pricing reforms on downstream investment in the BRICs. Of the BRICs, India and China (the two countries that are the largest net importers of oil) have accounted for the largest downstream investments and expansions in refining capacity…
The study shows that it is possible for India to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 2005 levels by 2030 and also provide modern energy services to more than half its population who are currently unserved or under-served in this regard…

The study explores the framing and approach of five state plans (Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Sikkim), the process through which it is formulated, its substantive recommendations, and plans for implementation.
The Geopolitics of Russian natural gas / Tatiana Mitrova . Baker III Institute for Public Policy, Rice University, April 2014, 100 p.
This OIES’s paper addresses the following policy question: why, despite nearly 15 years of operation of India’s New Exploration Licensing Policy (NELP), representing two full exploration cycles has this regime yielded inconclusive results, both in terms of a firm indication of India’s resource potential, and increased domestic production?
