Valuation of Energy Costs in the Indian Context

This report is an outcome of a survey based study conducted by TERI CBS under the aegis of the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC), with an objective to gauge corporate sector's preparedness in internalizing carbon pricing. The three phase project included extensive corporate consultations and deliberations, with 100+ business leaders on internal carbon pricing, its challenges, opportunities and possible methods of introducing carbon pricing among Indian businesses.

  • 17% of the Indian businesses surveyed as a part of TERI CBS study titled as 'Valuation of Energy Costs in the Indian Context', are already pricing carbon internally and another 40% were planning to do so in the next 1-2 years.
  • The awareness among the private sector regarding carbon pricing is still low and usage of carbon pricing is at a nascent stage for most corporate enterprises. This can be pushed through peer learning, both inter sector and intra sector.
  • The momentum on internal carbon pricing is rising among Indian Inc. as they see it as a good tool to make their investments future proof;
  • There is a need for hand-holding for improved technical understanding in arriving at the 'right price' of carbon emissions and adoption of the carbon pricing process.
