Narasimha Rao

Narasimha Rao researched the relationship between electricity access, income distribution, and greenhouse gas emissions in India, focusing on policy implementation and governance influences.

Narasimha D. Rao researched the relationship between electricity  access, livelihoods and carbon dioxide emissions in India. His methods include economic simulation models of the electricity sector and social  welfare, input-output analysis and carbon accounting. His work emphasizes modeling policy and institutional influences, such as supply rationing and energy subsidies. He intends to use his analysis to project the impacts of different urban and rural consumption patterns on carbon emissions.

Rao received his PhD in Environment and Resources (2011) from Stanford University, California, USA.
