Résumé

This document describes preliminary results of a project by the Council on Energy, Environment & Water (CEEW), the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development (IGSD), the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in collaboration with relevant industry associations to explore the business case in India for avoiding HFCs in new room air conditioners and motor vehicle air conditioners and adopting lower GWP alternatives. It is based on interviews with Indian businesses and government authorities. The full report of this collaboration will be published in spring 2013 after an additional round of consultations in January 2013.
As living standards rise for tens of millions of people, India is on the verge of an enormous expansion in room and vehicle air conditioning that could strain the country’s electric grid and magnify the impacts of global warming. Choices made in the next few years will shape whether Indian consumers, companies and government authorities can turn the challenges of the room and vehicle air conditioning expansion into business advantage and national opportunity while reducing climate change, improving air quality, and making air conditioning more efficient and less costly to operate.
