Evaluating Impact of India Ratifying Paris Climate Change Agreement on Different Industries - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Evaluating Impact of India Ratifying Paris Climate Change Agreement on Different Industries" report to their offering.

India, one of the world's largest emitter accounting 4.1% of the total global emissions ratified the Paris Climate Agreement on 2nd October 2016. The agreement agrees on a long-term goal of keeping the increase in global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, by bringing down the greenhouse gas emissions. It also aims to limit the increase to 1.5°C, since it would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change. Since European Union, with 12.1% emissions, also resolved to ratify, the agreement will cross the mandatory threshold of 55% and will set to enforce from November.

Reducing carbon emission intensity by 33-35% from what it is in 2005 is one of the key resolutions. India plans to achieve it by 2030 by aiming to produce 40% of electricity from non-fossil fuel sources, implementing energy efficiency measures and creating additional carbon sink by afforestation. This would mark the commendable shift from the conventional industrial practices as well as great market potential for the advanced energy efficiency and eco-friendly systems.

Primarily energy intensive and power industries will be immediately affected. Indian INDC commitment of 40% non-fossil electricity will be a big boost for renewable sector. Renewable energy sources other than solar and wind like cogeneration, biomass will play bigger role coupled with energy efficiency.

It is estimate that India has 17.9% untapped energy efficiency potential. Along with technology up gradation new economic models as 'Performance Contracting' or third party EPC will remove the capital cost constraint in implementing energy efficiency. It is projected that in near future performance contracting market will be over Rs.20,000 crores.

This report will be useful for energy service providing companies who are interested to tap the 'green' market as well as the investors investing in the 'green' company and efforts.
