Climate change has been in the global agenda since the â€œEarth Summitâ€ in 1992. As population level
is projected to increase from 6.5 billion to 8.3 billion by 2030, the world's demand for energy will
also increase by 53 percent (%) and thereby elevating global carbon emissions by 55% (Energy
Saving Association). For this very reason, energy efficiency is today's prime objective for energy
policy at regional, national and international levels.
India's carbon market is one of the fastest growing markets in the world and has already generated
approximately 30 million carbon credits, the second highest transacted volumes in the world. The
carbon trading market in India is growing faster than even information technology, bio technology
and BPO sectors. Nearly 850 projects with an investment of Rs 650,000 million are in the pipeline.
Carbon is also now being traded on India's Multi Commodity Exchange. It is the first exchange in
Asia to trade carbon credits.
Post 2012, India is set to continue in its role as a major market for GHG mitigation thanks to its
predicted economic growth path and the full support and initiative of the Indian government and it's
Designated National Authority (DNA). In order to effectively fight climate change it is essential that
India leapfrogs western industrialisation with modern low-carbon intensive manufacturing and clean
sources of energy. Carbon Markets India will once again provide an excellent meeting point for new
market entrants and key players from the entire carbon market value chain to achieve this goal.
The Carbon Congress 2011 focuses on Carbon Management, Sustainable Development and Revenues

Carbon Reduction Strategies, Waste Heat Recovery Based Captive Power Project (Generating carbon
credits from waste recovery in industry), Benefits of Voluntary Carbon Market Projects, Wind Power
CDM Projects, and Grid Connected Wind Power.
Our topics include CO2 offset as global policy, Carbon trading, energy efficiency and conservation,
city transportation management system, waste management, water conservation and management,
biodiversity, renewable energy and city climate policies.
