TERI Energy Data Directory and Yearbook 2007 (Containing Data for 2005/06) (With CD)

N / A (Author)
Synopsis As India aims to maintain its economic growth at a rate of about 9% and its people are set for rapid lifestyle changes, the demand for energy, particularly commercial energy, is expected to rise rapidly. Energy use and its implications are a subject of growing interest and concern in the country today. The rich-poor divide is quite evident in the patterns of energy consumption. Non-commercial fuels are still predominant sources of cooking, particularly in rural areas, and have adverse effects on air pollution and human health. The Government of India, in its Eleventh Five-Year Plan, has focused on increasing the availability and affordability of, and access to, various forms of cleaner energy. At the global level too, countries and their governments are realizing the importance of moving towards sustainable use of energy to reduce the risks associated with climate change. Extensive use of fossil fuels for industrial development during the last century has been the largest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions. While this form of energy use is likely continue, at least in the near future, enhancing efficiency in generation and consumption of energy would be the main strategy for development with minimized greenhouse gas emissions. TERI takes pride in presenting the current edition of TEDDY (TERI Energy Data Directory and Yearbook), which provides updated information on the energy supply sectors (coal and lignite, oil and gas, power, and renewable energy sources) as well as the energy-consuming sectors (agriculture, industry, transport, residential, and commercial sectors). In addition, topics such as forestry, environment, climate change, and biodiversity have been dealt with in detail, since these have implications for development in the energy sector. Each chapter is followed by a listing of important and relevant events/policy initiatives that have taken place during the year. For over two decades now, TEDDY has been a much sought after reference document for information on energy and related issues in India.
