TERI Energy & Environment Data Directory and Yearbook, or TEDDY, is an annual publication brought out by TERI since 1986. TEDDY is often used as a reference in other peer-reviewed books and journals for energy and environment-related data. It gives an annual overview of the developments in the energy supplying and consuming sectors as well as the environment sector. It also provides a review of the government policies that have implications for these sectors of the Indian economy.
This book covers, in a panoramic sweep, all the formidable environmental challenges that we face. It is a grim reminder of our disquieting environmental reality; yet the stories here inspire hope and provide examples of the building blocks for a sustainable world. Environment Chronicles II is the go-to resource for readers who want to know, in holistic terms, about what's ailing the environment as well as the solutions for a greener future. Backing up its claims with several unassailable facts, this book reinforces the urgency for sustainable development, particularly for conservation, resource-use efficiency, and waste minimization—all ideas that are now picking up the much-needed momentum.
Released on 24 Aug 2006, by Shri Sushil Kumar Shinde, Hon'ble Union Minister of Power, Govt. of India, the handbook presents a detailed account of energy conservation and environmental management in small, medium as well as large enterprises. It is a must-read for every professional interested in energy management and auditing.
With increasing population, economic growth, rising demand, and receding resources, the inevitable question of who owns, manages, and utilizes resources has acquired paramount importance. With nations undertaking significant efforts to secure and access natural resources, a holistic resource security framework is critical and essential for a secure and sustainable future. India’s Resource Security: Trade, Geopolitics, and Efficiency Dimensions covers a wide range of issues within the domain of resource security. It attempts to make the readers understand the resource concerns from three perspectives: trade, geopolitics, and efficiency. The book highlights the major aspects that resource se...
Accelerated urbanization imposes immense pressure on the dwindling energy sources and fragile ecosystems. Yet, the resource crunch confronting energy supplies can be alleviated if we design and develop future buildings by incorporating sound concepts of energy efficiency and sustainability.Covering 41 projects from India's various climatic zones, this book provides thorough insights into the context, techniques, and benefits of energy-efficient buildings. The projects highlight design responses to varied climatic conditions, appropriate materials and construction methods, implementation of energy-efficient systems, and effective utilization of renewable energy to reduce pressure on grid power.This book will inspire architects, designers, urban planners, engineers, and students to build for a better tomorrow.
TERI Energy & Environment Data Diary and Yearbook (TEDDY) is an annual publication brought out by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) since 1986. It is the only comprehensive energy and environment yearbook in India which provides updated information on the energy supply sectors (coal and lignite, petroleum and natural gas, power, and renewable energy sources), energy demand sectors (agriculture, industry, transport, residential, and commercial sectors), and environment (local and global). The publication also provides a review of the government policies that have implications for these sectors of the Indian economy. Each edition of TEDDY contains India's commercial energy balances for...
Following a trajectory of high growth, China and India face a common challenge of achievingan environmentally benign pattern of development owing to growing global issues like climatechange, land degradation, and biodiversity loss. In wake of the above, the China Council forInternational Cooperation on Environment and Development (CCICED) and the India Councilfor Sustainable Development (ICSD) commissioned a joint-study, to be conducted by ChineseAcademy of Environmental Planning (CAEP) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).Thisbook is the outcome of the study and understands the environment and development paradigmsfor both India and China, identifies key issues, and draws commonalities, differences, and lessonsthat can be learnt.

The global demand for energy is met mainly by fossil fuels. Their excessive and indiscriminate use, coupled with increasing demand for energy, will soon deplete their existing reserves. Therefore, it is extremely important to find alternative, environment-friendly, and ecologically sound sources of energy for meeting the present and future energy requirements. Biogas Technology: Towards Sustainable Development makes an attempt to explore the potential of utilizing biodegradable biomass as fuel and manure.
An annual publication brought out by TERI since 1986, TEDDY provides an overview of the implications of government policies for the Indian economy. The contents of TEDDY are categorized under: (1) energy supply (oil and gas, coal and lignite, power, renewable energy), (2) energy demand (industry, transport, agriculture, and omestic), (3) forests and environment, and (4) global environmental issues (with complimentary CD).
