Decarbonisation of The Economy
Published on : Friday, November 25, 2011
Decarbonisation of the world economy is a natural process which evolves due to the human need to lower the cost of energy --which has made heat -to-energy processes more energy efficient and has been going on for the past 500 years. A competitive market continuously strives for greater energy efficiency. Mr. Barun Mitra shows how the Indian economy has been following the same path towards decarbonisation after the initiative of economic liberalisation in the early 1990s. Developing countries like India, in his view, must have the freedom to choose the lowest-cost and most efficient energy solutions in order to pursue their economic development.
