CEEW and Aspen India host talk with Amory Lovins on making the move to the next energy era
16 Nov 2012

CEEW and Aspen Institute India organised a thought-provoking talk with Amory Lovins, one of the world’s foremost energy thinkers, Co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute, and most recently, author of “Reinventing Fire” - a book that shares ingenious ideas for the next era of energy. The talk focused on the implications for India of the revolutionary ideas proposed in Reinventing Fire — his recent publication that showcases how to run a 2.6 times-bigger US economy in 2050 with no oil, coal, or nuclear energy; one-third less natural gas; a $5-trillion lower NPV private internal cost than business-as-usual; no new inventions or national laws; 82–86% lower fossil carbon emissions than now; and a highly resilient, 80%-renewable electricity system. Presenting in front of an intimate group of high-level professionals for the government,industry and academia, Amory argued that most of the conditions mentioned in his book are fungible to Indian conditions. The audience deliberated on  which developments will be needed to start transitioning towards the next energy era. They also discussed developments that are already underway in India, and hurdles that will need to be addressed in the short, mid and long term.
