Review of Urban Transport in India

On account of rapid motorisation of Indian cities, there is an increase in air pollution, road accidents, petroleum fuel consumption and severe congestion. Poor transportation has the potential to adversely impact the economic efficiency of our cities as well as the health and well-being of urban In...

RE-Energising Karnataka: An Assessment of Renewable Energy Policies, Challenges and Opportunities

Karnataka has about 30,000 MW of estimated Renewable Energy (RE) potential, making it one of the top five RE-rich states in the country. Despite having a comprehensive state RE policy, the state has lagged behind in terms of RE capacity addition over the past few years. It is imperative to address t...

Manufactured Sand Potential and Status in Karnataka

Sand is an essential element in concrete and hence plays an important role in the construction and infrastructure industry in a modern economy. It is typically sourced from riverbeds which are located in ecologically sensitive areas. Hence, excessive mining leads to the degradation of riverbeds, whi...

Nuclear Waste Management

Renewable sources of energy might seem to be a viable alternative for clean-power generation. However, their intermittency is an impediment. In this context, nuclear energy merits serious consideration. Public aversion exists due to its potential risks, past disasters and lack of suitable solutions ...
