India is heavily dependent on coal, which is a main source of the greenhouse gases driving global warming.
To shift to a low-carbon path requires more efficient use of coal, demand-side management of energy, development of carbon capture and storage, use of natural gas as a bridge fuel, and a ramping up of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and hydropower.
To accomplish the shift to low carbon, it is important to stress that the need is not just a question of fuels but also regulatory and functional challenges for the electricity sector, especially in providing modern energy access to all and in achieving development goals.
This Seminar shall provide the required forum for people from the legal and environmental background to express their views and opinions on the importance of development of Sustainable Energy and also deliberate on their future in India, keeping in mind the current policy and legislative trends.
