India’s Energy Transition in a Carbon-Constrained World: The Role of Nuclear Power - Overview and Key Recommendations

The concern for climate change has spurred an intense debate on energy transition to a low carbon economy. Climate change is an existential problem facing humanity. While the developed world has contributed most to global warming, its consequences will be felt by all countries. The worst affected will be those least equipped to deal with it. Vivekananda International Foundation has undertaken a study of energy choices available to India keeping in mind our development perspective.

This is an interdisciplinary study. For this purpose, VIF has put together a Task Force, which consists of senior scientists, engineers, civil servants, and members of academia. Their efforts are supported by a strong research team. The study covers climate negotiations, energy choices made by major economies, and trends in the power sector in India. It explores technology options and finances available to developing countries for making the transition.
