White Paper on Behavioural Energy Efficiency Potential for India
India’s building sector energy consumption is expected to grow by an average of 2.7% per year from 2015 to 2040, more than twice the global average. About 70% of this building sector energy demand will come from the residential sector. In this light, it is important to explore innovative interventions, particularly those that would help avoid costly augmentation of generation, transmission and distribution capacities. This document takes a closer look at behavioural energy efficiency in India.
