Thesis Topic: 

The Indian power sector is one of the largest contributors of carbon dioxide emissions among all sectors. Therefore, through our work we want to analyze the trade-offs in cost and emissions from our existing power plants. This involves creating an optimization model with detailed representation of all power plants of India and analyzing implications of different operating strategies in power generation. We found that Indian power sector can mitigate significant amount of emission through changes in supply strategy and further by addressing gas supply bottlenecks. The study aims to provide methodological as well as policy contribution for power sector transitions.
