Energy Symposium Presentation on Climate Mitigation and India

Sarang Shidore and I in May 2016 recently presented our findings of our research on sectoral climate mitigation in India. We are going to be using this blog more to talk about our work in this space. We are joined by LBJ School PhD student Xue Gao who will be working with us as we extend our research to China.

We have a paper under review upon which this presentation is based. Sarang and I have carried out about 30 interviews with Indian stakeholders on the topic. More to come soon.
