Budget 2021 should propel a second clean fuel transition in NCR
Analysing Industrial Fuel Policy in Delhi and NCR States
The use of dirty fuel, like coal, contributes to the great pollution chokehold in NCR. In early 2000, Delhi moved to compressed natural gas (CNG) for its public transport vehicles. This transition was a strategy to leapfrog so that it could get a scaled up benefit Ð moving away from diesel to cleaner fuel like gas. This brought massive benefits.
Now the challenge is the use of coal in industry spread across this region. The solution to cleaning the air will be in a second gas-electricity transition Ð move out of coal to cleaner fuels. But today's fiscal policy rewards dirty fuel over clean fuel. Budget 2021 is an opportunity to fix this.
Centre for Science and Environment is organising a webinar to release its latest analysis of industrial fuel policy in Delhi and NCR states, and to discuss the clean fuel options for Budget 2021.
Please join us for the discussion on January 22, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM.
