India has implemented a number of energy efficiency initiatives in an effort to lessen its carbon impact. This includes implementing projects based on cogeneration and trigeneration.
Over the past year, the Government of India has rolled out several policies and financial/non-financial incentives to catalyse growth in these sectors. Notably, in November 2022, the National Bioenergy Programme was notified by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The programme comprises two phases, and Rs 8,580 million has been allocated as capital under the first phase. Under the mission, central financial assistance (CFA) has also been offered for various subsegments of bioenergy.
