Report on ‘Low Carbon Society Bhopal 2035

The Report on ‘Low Carbon Society Bhopal 2035’ was released on 24th September 2011 at a symposium in Bhopal, India. The report shows that Bhopal has about 40% Greenhouse Gas emission reduction potential over Business as Usual level in the possible LCS Scenario in year 2035. Seven Actions have been suggested that can impact the existing energy consumption pattern as well as GHG emissions in future. These actions, though, identified separately for the ease of communication, are inseparably linked in the LCS framework and can only work in conjunction towards achieving the vision.
