Can smart meters make India's power sector more people-centric?

60% of consumers in India are satisfied with smart meters and would recommend them to friends & relatives, according to a new CEEW study based on a survey of 2,700 households in 6 states.

More 👇 The Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme aims to replace 250 million conventional electricity meters with smart prepaid meters by 2025-26.

They can help power discoms improve billing & revenue collection & enable consumers to track & manage electricity consumption and expenses.

Smart-metered India for a Digitalised and People-centric Power Sector twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1… Smart meters help consumers make informed consumption decisions. But consumers are unaware of benefits. Need a practical approach in awareness campaigns, need innovative financial models to make them affordable, & need to ensure data transparency: @VivekKumarDewa5, @RECLindia Image

Netzero announcements ✅
But is the available carbon space being fairly shared?
➡️by 2050, China, the US, & the EU are likely to occupy over 90% of the available 1.5°C #carbonspace.
➡️by 2030, they would consume 45% of the available carbon space.

Read 👇 The study also found that the #netzero commitments made by the 10 big emitters are inadequate and would surpass the 1.5°C #carbon space by 33% by 2050.

Did developed countries meet the pre-2020 #climateaction commitments?
Our new study found that
➡️Major developed countries — including all G7 countries — cut #emissions by just 3.7%
➡️ Developed countries collectively consumed 25 GtCO2eq additional #carbon space
More👇 Why is the pre-2020 era significant?
All countries must now significantly raise #climate ambitions to limit warming to 1.5°C. But, given the principle of equity & common but differentiated responsibilities, the onus of reducing #emissions lay on #developed countries pre-2020.

Last afternoon, given #DelhiAirEmergency, we gave our employees the option to work from home till 5 Nov, when we will re-evaluate the situation. This thread will explore why there’s no quick fix for India’s #AirPollution woes. #DelhiPollution #Delhi #sustainability 1/n @KurinjiSelvaraj @tanushree_g @KarthikGanesan6 @hemdholakia @agorthi @guptaniti29 The #airquality has been ‘severe’ (over 10 times above WHO standards for 24 hr mean PM 2.5 concentration) in #Delhi for 7 days. Parts of #India along the Indo-Gangetic plain have also been suffering the same fate. #Lucknow recorded the worst air quality in 3 yrs on Nov 1. 2/n
