dc.description.abstractHerath Gunatilake, David Roland-Holst, Guntur Sugiyarto, and Jenn Baka Energy write that biodiesel expansion, when combined with energy efficiency improvements and food productivity increases, could provide India much better opportunities for enhanced energy security, food security, and climate change mitigation. Biodiesel expansion for 20% blending by 2017 can offset the significant negative impacts on the Indian economy of price increases. However, bioethanol does not have the ability to counteract the impacts of oil price increases.
