CHP and District Cooling: An Assessment of Market and Policy Potential in India

This report contains an assessment of India’s combined heat and power (CHP)/district cooling (DC) status and recommendations for addressing barriers to allow India to meet its energy efficiency targets. Such barriers include a lack of governmental emphasis on CHP, the absence of a clear methodology for calculating CO2 emission reductions from CHP/DHC, and a tax and duty structure for CHP capital equipment that is not as attractive as for other renewable energy technologies.
