In the digital age, half our electricity still comes from coal. DIRTY BUSINESS: Clean Coal and the Battle for Our Energy Future is a documentary that reveals the true social and environmental costs of coal power and tells the stories of innovators who are pointing the way to an alternative energy future.
Guided by Rolling Stone reporter Jeff Goodell, the film examines what it means to remain dependent on a 19th century technology that is the largest single source of greenhouse gases. Can coal really be made clean? Can renewables and efficiency be produced on a scale large enough replace coal? The film seeks answers in a series of stories shot in China, Saskatchewan, Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada and New York.
If you could go behind the light switch; if you could follow the electricity back to the power plant and if you could see the coal being burnt there; if you could look at the pollution pouring out of the smoke stacks, warming the planet, shortening our lives; if you could go back to the coal mines themselves and see the mountains being blasted apart; and if you could somehow come up with a full accountability of what it really means to be dependent upon coal- would you feel the same way about electricity?

TERI Lighting a billion lives

TERI Lighting a billion lives

TERI, with its vision to work for global sustainable development and its commitment towards creating innovative solutions for a better tomorrow, has undertaken an initiative of Lighting a Billion Lives (LaBL) through the use of solar lighting devices.

The Campaign aims to bring light into the lives of one billion rural people by replacing the kerosene and paraffin lanterns with solar lighting devices. This will facilitate education of children; provide better illumination and kerosene-smoke-free indoor environment for women to do household chores; and provide opportunities for livelihoods both at the individual level and at village level. In terms of physical targets, it translates into 200 000 000 solar lanterns in use, assuming that each solar lantern benefits five members of a family.

The Campaign targets all communities across the world that lack access to modern and clean sources of lighting. Through this Campaign, local entrepreneur-driven delivery channels are created for distribution and servicing of solar lanterns to rural communities, for whom kerosene is the predominant fuel for lighting—not only in households but also in small enterprises such as shops, local bazaars, tuition and coaching centres, and cottage industries.

The Campaign uses solar lanterns that have CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) as well as LEDs (light emitting diodes) for dual purposes. While CFL provides bright illumination for tasks such as studying and cooking; LEDs provide general low-level illumination during the whole night. The solar lantern, specially designed for the Campaign, lights up for 45 hours daily using CFL and another 67 hours using LEDs upon full charge of its battery.
