156% - Growth in Indian primary energy consumption by 2040.
India's robust economic and population growth means that energy demand is rising more quickly here than anywhere else.
Although investment in renewable power sources like solar and wind continues at a rapid pace, coal continues to dominate; as the growth in consumption cannot be met with renewables alone – at least not in the near future.
116% - Growth in India's net CO2 emissions by 2040.
Carbon emissions are projected to climb even further in the coming decade, but the growth rate will slow.
Learning from the lessons of the West – building smarter, more efficient buildings and cities, for example – and replacing coal with lower carbon natural gas alongside renewables will play a crucial role. But it's the Government's ambitious policies that will predominantly drive change, and India is showing ingenuity and determination in developing smart solutions – and rolling them out on a massive scale.
