This assessment is organized by industrial sectors. We begin with the cement sector, and then focus on the refining, fertiliser, textiles, and chlor-alkali sectors, in that order. For each sector, we report on the basic production processes, economic and energy characteristics of that sector in India, its potential for energy efficiency improvement, and scenarios of future energy use. This is followed by a short summary of the future directions for efficiency improvement. In the final section, we provide some examples of policies that have been used in other countries that could be pursued in India for efficiency improvement.
The length of each section depends on the complexity of the industry, and the material available for the assessment. We had access to more material
on the cement and refining industry, which are reviewed more in-depth, while chloralkali is both an industry with limited number of products, and limited availability of studies, and hence its description is shorter than others.
