Leading Thinktanks Release Study Entitled Mapping India’s Energy Policy 2022

Council On Energy, Environment & Water (CEEW), International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), and Global Subsidies Initiative (GSI) have published a research report titled Mapping India’s Energy Policy 2022”. The public resources that support the use of fossil fuels, renewable energy sources, and electric vehicles are updated in the study. In this report, organizations asses trends in support levels over the past few years and pinpoint the most important areas where budgets can be more effectively coordinated with stated policy goals. CEEW, IISD, and GSI then determine the revenue generated by fossil and renewable energy to further analyse the revenue implications of the energy transition. CEEW, IISD, and GSI also estimate the externalities related to the various energy sources that India uses to make sure that revenue advantages are taken into account in the context of total expenses. The information used in this study was gathered from publicly accessible sources.
Regarding support, data is primarily limited to what the Union Government has provided, reflecting the data availability and what was practical given the project’s resources. Data on revenues represent high data accessibility and cover the Union, state, and Union Territory (UT) governments. The whole energy value chain, including coal, oil, and gas, electricity transmission and distribution (T&D), renewable energy, and electric cars, is included whenever possible (EVs). Due to the lack of data, nuclear and hydropower are not included.
