An Indian Civil Society Initiative to Understand India's GHG Emission Estimates

Electricity & Energy Sector



Energy sector emission estimations have been analyzed from energy production and use in the Electricity Generation, Transportation and Other (Residential, Commercial, Agriculture and Fisheries) sectors. Together these constitute over 63% of India's emissions in 2013. Emissions from energy use in fuel production (mining and refineries) have been reported in Industry but fugitive emissions have been reported in Energy, as per IPCC 2006 guidelines.

The data used has been sourced from public sources to the extent possible. Assumptions and methodologies have been made transparent for further analysis outside the India GHG Platform. The exercise forms the basis to measure India's climate performance and stimulate data-driven policy decisions.

The lead sector partner for Energy Sector Emissions Estimates is the Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy.
