India may rank only a distant fourth in terms of carbon dioxide emissions, behind China, the United States and Russia, but its rapid economic growth rate coupled with aging and inefficient energy infrastructure suggest dire environmental consequences if “business as usual” continues. That’s why experts from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been working to expand collaborations with India on energy efficiency.

A combination of various energy efficiency measures — including greener buildings, a smarter electric grid, more efficient home appliances and more advanced industrial and manufacturing processes — have the potential to eliminate India’s electricity shortage, reduce pollution and decrease its emissions of greenhouse gases, while boosting the country’s economic output by as much as $500 billion over the next eight years, according to a theme paper that was presented the week of November 16 in New Delhi at the Second U.S.-India Energy Efficiency Technology Cooperation Conference. The paper was co-written by researchers from Berkeley Lab, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and ECO III.
