The Ministry of Environment & Forests invites applications, under it's newly launched "National Environmental Sciences Fellows Programme" for the year 2010-11 from Scientists of India or of Indian origin desirous of participating in cutting-edge research on critical issues related to environment in collaboration with leading Institutes and Scientists in India and the world.
LBNL releases preliminary technical analysis to illustrate the electricity savings and CO2 mitigation potential for appliance efficiency incentives programs coordinated through the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative to transform the global market for televisions (TVs).
Berkeley Lab and the University of California, Berkeley have announced a joint research and development program in which researchers will work with the government and private sector of India to develop paths toward reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) while maintaining sustained economic growth.
Several IESG researchers have served as authors on WGIII of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), whose reports, over the past two decades, have confirmed the connection between human activities and global warming. The IPCC shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with former Vice President Al Gore, it was reported in Norway on Friday, October 12, 2007.
Jayant Sathaye, Lynn Price, Willy Makundi (retired), and Ernst Worrell are all IESG members who have served as lead authors on various IPCC reports. IESG researchers Stephane de la Rue du Can and Aleksandra Novikova contributed to the analysis. Other members of Environmental Energy Technology Division Mark Levine and Evan Mills, have also participated in the research done by the IPCC.
The IESG is composed of scientists active on the world forum in the areas of energy, forestry, and climate research. They work to inform governments and international institutions on energy-related issues to help them formulate energy and environmental policies and to facilitate the diffusion of energy-efficient and environmentally benign technology.
