Green growth in India

India's economy is booming, leading to a huge demand for energy and in turn rising carbon emissions. But the supply of electricity remains erratic and unreliable and is unable to keep pace with rising energy needs. A variety of projects aim to help businesses, hotels and hospitals make more efficient use of energy and lower wastage. The focus is also on raising public awareness. In the next 25 years alone, India is projected to quadruple its consumption of coal, a major pollutant.
