Residential buildings in India: energy use projections and savings potentials

A new scenario analysis demonstrates that a very aggressive residential building energy efficiency policy and market driven scenario in India can substantially reduce future energy demand in the sector. Following a business-as-usual scenario it is estimated that consumption from the residential building sector could rise up to 8 times. The study shows that it is possible to avoid this worst-case scenario by developing energy-efficiency strategies focused on the residential sector and provides recommendations to help decision-makers move towards a sustainable future.
