Energy management – clean cooking fuel for homes:
A National energy conference – “Energy Management in Changing Business Scenario” is being organised in October 2005 by the Centre for Renewable Energy and Environment Development (CREED), of the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), in Pilani (Rajasthan, India). It is aimed at deliberating on the changing regimes in energy management, focusing on issues such as energy conservation, energy substitution and technology management. The expected delegates for the conference are energy professionals, academicians, researchers and policy makers. A presentation on “Clean cooking fuel options for India” has been prepared.

Challenges to the implementation of environmental policies have been identified.  In particular, conflicts arise when the need for increasing the generation of electricity -- for household energy services among largely un-served populations and for productive purposes -- is juxtaposed with the impacts resulting from increased generation.  Based on our analyses, we have elicited factors that would facilitate the implementation of environmental policy.  Among these are: priorities in the national agenda, technical, financial and institutional provisions, integrated planning, economic pricing, timely monitoring, and regional/international commitment.  Effective use of these could enable countries to proceed toward meeting the need for energy services, while preserving the environment.
