  • Strengthening Emission Standards for Air Pollutants
    SECTOR Climate Policy // GRANTEE Public Health Foundation of India // YEAR 2016
  • Sector Climate Policy

    Grantee Public Health Foundation of India

    Grantee base All India

    Year 2016

    Emission standards have an important role to play in reducing emissions and improving ambient air quality. Shakti has previously supported sector specific work on developing emission standards for thermal power plants, vehicles, brick kilns and diesel generators. Recently, we have supported a collaborative effort involving Ricardo, Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and Council of Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) to review the process for setting industry-specific emission standards for air pollutants in India and provides recommendations for strengthening the process.

  • GHG Platform India
  • Sector Climate Policy

    Grantee Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), Council on Energy, Environment and Water, ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, South Asia, Vasudha Foundation, World Resources Institute India

    Grantee base All India

    Year 2016

    Shakti supports the GHG Platform India (http://ghgplatform-india.org/), a multi-institution platform of civil society organizations to regularly prepare GHG emission estimates at the national and state levels and undertake policy relevant analysis. The Platform aims to address a critical data gap in India, which is the absence of regularly updated, transparent and publicly accessible GHG emissions data at the national and state level that is based on peer-reviewed methodologies.

  • Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emission scenarios and implications of an HFC phase-down for India
  • Sector Climate Policy

    Grantee Council on Energy, Environment and Water, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

    Grantee base All India

    Year 2015

    Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), developed to replace ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), are used as refrigerants in air-conditioners and refrigerators, and in industrial processes as solvents and foaming agents. While they do not impact the ozone layer, HFCs are greenhouse gases (GHGs) with high global warming potential (GWP). Therefore an increasing shift towards HFCs across sectors will further contribute to climate change. There has been limited understanding on the implications that an HFC phase-down holds for India, particularly in terms of availability and use of HFC alternatives, process changes, costs and timelines. This collaborative study between the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) aims to generate much needed knowledge on these issues.

    Using the the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM) and Greenhouse Gas and Air Pollution Interactions and Synergies (GAINS) model, the study will build a few scenarios that assess the consequences of action versus inaction on the part of India in phasing-down HFCs and on account of policy developments on HFC use internationally. This will enable a more informed domestic discourse in India on the GHG reduction potential, economic cost, and market implications of transitioning away from high GWP HFCs under alternative reduction pathways and the available policy options for facilitating this transition.

  • Financing of Low Carbon Development at State Level
  • Sector Climate Policy

    Grantee Institute of Financial Management and Research

    Grantee base Multi State

    Year 2015

    States have an important role to play in India's transition towards low carbon development. But one of the stumbling blocks on account of which progress on the part of states is likely to falter is financing -- both in terms of availability and effective utilisation. This initiative by Shakti attempted to address this constraint by identifying opportunities to increase financing of low carbon development initiatives at state level and support more effective utilisation of finances already earmarked by states for promoting such initiatives.
