Duration of Internship: 15thMarch to 15thJune, 2021 (Three months)
Background of project
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has been studying the coal-based thermal power sector in India since 2011. The work started as an off shoot of the UNDP’s The Green Rating Project (GRP), one of the millennium development goal projects. The GRP rating of Coal-based thermal power sector ‘Heat on Power’, released in 2015, revealed the poor environmental performance of the sector, and the inadequacy of pollution standards put in place by MoEFCC. The report spurred wide debate among policy makers, and later in that year, at the time when COP was happening, the Ministry released stricter pollution control norms for the thermal power sector with a deadline of two years for implementation.
Since then, CSE has focused its interventions to address the concerns associated with the technology, timeline, investments etc. that could have potentially derailed the implementation of the norms through dedicated research and continued advocacy. Currently, the programme focuses pushing implementation through on-ground engagement especially at state-level to track the status of implementation of the norms in the survey plants, and build technical capacity of the industry and regulators, among others.
