Title: Environmental implications of Indian power sector development

Abstract

Development of a power sector is capital intensive. In addition, the Indian power system, being dominated by coal, pollutes the environment significantly. The present article analyzes the investment requirement and environmental implications of the Indian power system during 1997/98--2006/07. Higher GDP growth rates expected as a result of the recently introduced economic reforms in India have been considered in the study.
