The International Energy Agency (IEA) has forecast that if current trends continue, worldwide CO2 emissions in 2050 will be about double those of 2005. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which consists of international experts, has drawn up scenarios for future CO2 emissions, and forecast their effects on rising temperatures. Based on these results, the G8 announced a target for halving CO2 emissions by 2050, with the aim of restricting the rise in global temperatures to 2oC. The use of renewable energy such as wind or solar power is expected to be one of the main measures to achieve the target. IEA evaluates that the 21% of CO2 emission that must be reduced should be achieved by the renewable energy.
Historically, the LEPI Group and its Associates have been involved both directly and indirectly in the establishment of power plants at the evaluation and start-up stages.
LEP Global is involved in consultancy in relation to renewable energy, green technology, waste management, etc. and is currently involved in the hydro-electric power plants in the South Asia and in the southern region of Africa.
We are also playing an advisory role in the management of waste using green technology in various municipalities in South Asia.
LEP Global is headed by Dr. K.K. Panicker, with Ir. Thomas George, Ir. Anto Joseph and Ir. Achuthan Krishnan as independent advisors to the Energy board.
