How energy efficiency will slash India's carbon emissions

As one of the world's burgeoning economic powerhouses and a developing country, India is a country that's increasingly dependent on the expansion of its numerous heavy industries. But without greater efficiency, these manufacturing facilities could see the country's carbon emissions sky rocket.

As a recent Read Write article notes, the government's 'Made in India' initiative will boost the number of people employed in heavy industries over the coming decades, whilst moving them from rural areas and improving their standard of living. This means the demand for energy looks set to double within the next 15 years. With limited fossil fuel resources, India has little choice but to ensure that its industries are efficient enough to support this growth.

Any country with numerous factories and modern industries has to keep an eye on its emissions. These facilities disperse pollutants on a large scale, sometimes even affecting neighbouring nations.

China is one example of how having numerous industries in one space, with lower environmental standards, can lead to heavy pollution and a poor quality of life. In order to prevent these problems arising in India, the country will offset its increased industrial activity with greater efficiency and sustainability.

Factories will need to reduce their carbon footprints by boosting their efficiency, making optimum use of their resources and making use of technology such as energy management systems.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will play a key role in this, promising greater efficiency across the board. In addition to this, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power will become increasingly viable, reducing the emission of harmful pollutants and ensuring the quality of the country's air and water supply.
