Climate co-benefits of air quality and clean energy policy in India
Sustainable development goals connect policies addressing air quality and energy efficiency with complementary benefits for climate mitigation. However, a typically fragmented approach across these
Access to clean cooking services in energy and emission scenarios after COVID-19
The analysis shows that universal access to clean cooking access until 2050 may not be achieved even in 2050, and underline the need for immediate acceleration in efforts to make clean cooking accessible and affordable to all.
Technologies, challenges and perspectives of biogas production within an agricultural context. The case of China and Africa
The use of fossil fuels in modern economies has been a success because of the low cost of fossil resources. However, the depletion of fossil reserves, the increase in waste production and global
Investigation on Current and Prospective Energy Transition Scenarios in Indian Landscape Using Integrated SWOT-MCDA Methodology
India has ambitious goals to increase renewable energy penetration, and significant progress has been made since 2017. However, the Indian energy mix is highly dominated by fossil fuels. To set India
A comprehensive review and a systematic approach to enhance the performance of improved cookstove (ICS)
The biomass has been the choice of the heat source for cooking purposes since ancient times. The inefficient combustion process in traditional cookstoves has its shortcomings in the form of adverse
Evidence for reduced performance discrepancy of improved cookstoves at laboratory and field
The discrepancy in the performance of improved cookstoves (ICSs) in laboratory and field settings has been well demonstrated, with field results portraying considerable decrease in performance


Environmental payoffs of LPG cooking in India
Over two-thirds of Indians use solid fuels to meet daily cooking energy needs, with associated negative environmental, social, and health impacts. Major national initiatives implemented by the Indian
CO2 Emissions from Direct Energy Use of Urban Households in India.
The results indicate that reducing urban heat-island effects and the associated cooling degree days by greening, switching to modern nonsolid cooking fuels, and anticipatory transport infrastructure investments are key policies for the low-carbon and inclusive development of Indian cities.
▪ Abstract It is commonly assumed that biomass fuel cycles based on renewable harvesting of wood or agricultural wastes are greenhouse-gas (GHG) neutral because the combusted carbon in the form of
Using sales data to assess cooking gas adoption and the impact of India’s Ujjwala programme in rural Karnataka
More than 70 million poor women in India have received liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) stoves within the first 35 months under a government programme, Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY). Here, we
Respiratory risks from household air pollution in low and middle income countries.
Policy trade-offs between climate mitigation and clean cook-stove access in South Asia
Household air pollution from traditional cook stoves presents a greater health hazard than any other environmental factor. Despite government efforts to support clean-burning cooking fuels, over 700
