The International Energy Agency estimates that to hit net-zero globally by 2050, six times more critical minerals will be required in 2040 than today. The rapid increase in demand for critical minerals is likely to increase price volatility. This could aggravate energy security concerns, and thereby delay the necessary clean energy transition...

There is limited knowledge on the potential impacts of electric vehicle (EV) deployment in developing countries to date. India is a rapidly industrializing country with a national policy to promote EVs, but does not have the waste management infrastructure to process battery waste. Through a model analysis for India, we projected that the sale of...
Working Paper
In the net-zero context, technology transfer plays a critical role in achieving the emission reduction and meeting the climate mitigation goals of countries. However, the extent of penetration of transferred technologies and their respective mitigation potential will depend on the scale of transfer among the source and recipient countries. This...

In China's Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia's Energy Transition: Carbon Leakage, Relocation and Halos
India has an ambitious renewable energy target for the decades ahead. However, the targets are faced with two critical impediments: (1) the lack of an internationally competitive renewable equipment manufacturing industry domestically and (2) the overdependency on external supply sources for equipment and machinery. The chapter finds that, despite...
