India faces a huge energy deficit, with millions of households without power for basic lighting or cooking, and coal power is essential for the next few decades to resolve this energy crisis, to address the issue of energy access, which is just as important as the environmental problems of unclean power.
The high energy footprint of conventional municipal water management practices and contemporary disharmony between the water and energy sectors has resulted in missed joint opportunities for resource conservation.
Rising pollutant emissions from coal-based power plants in Indonesia is an urgent and immediate concern.
