Industrial Decarbonization

Production of industrial materials contribute to over a third of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Reconciling the growth of industrial output with global climate ambitions remains one of our toughest challenges.

CPI leverages its expertise across sectors, actors, and geographies to support industrial decarbonization, including work to develop a roadmap for financing industrial decarbonization and policy interventions that best enable the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies required for long-term decarbonization of the largest emitting industrial sectors.

Blog: Indonesia wants a carbon tax, but with subsidies?

Indonesia is preparing a carbon tax to cut down emissions and free up funds for climate action. But a carbon tax on coal and fuels will not affect buyers as the cost is kept artificially low by government subsidies. To achieve its goal, the carbon tax should open a wider opportunity for Indonesia to refocus its state budget, and phase out its fossil-fuel subsidies. This blog highlights the key elements for the carbon tax to launch successfully.

Decarbonization of Indian Railways: Assessing Balancing Costs and Policy Risks

Complete decarbonization of the electricity demand of Indian Railways (IR) – transitioning from the current, largely fossil-fuel based energy mix to clean energy like solar and wind power – is likely to have multiple benefits. These include support in achieving India’s clean energy targets, enhancing India’s energy security, and reducing IR’s operational costs.


Decarbonization of Indian Railways

One key sector of the Indian economy that could set a strategic example for decarbonization and meeting India’s 2030 targets under the Paris Agreement is the rail transport system, and specifically Indian Railways (IR), India’s national railway service. In this report, we have identified different potential pathways to decarbonization of IR by 2030 and examined their cost-effectiveness and feasibility.
