Applicability of White Certificates in the Indian Electricity Sector
MetadataShow full item record
This work investigates end-use electricity efficiency policies and Demand Side Management within the Indian electricity sector. Furthermore, this work performs a comparative analysis on a number of trading schemes, with a focus on the White Certificate schemes and Energy Saving Obligations of the UK, France and Italy. Differences and similarities, together with lessons learned are highlighted. These two analyses come together when lessons are identified which are applicable for a utility based Energy Saving Obligation scheme within India. Most relevant results and recommendations are that no design modalities from other trading schemes should be simply copied, that an obligation is recommended and that standardization could offer benefits to the Indian context. However, a number of steps would be required prior to successful introduction of an Energy Saving Obligation.
