The Role of Natural Gas in India's Energy Transition

03 Aug 2021   |   1500–1630 hrs IST

Natural gas is one of the big bets for India’s energy transition. Multiple efforts, including large-scale investments, have been undertaken to increase the share of natural gas in the primary energy mix to 15 per cent by 2030. However, moving to a gas-based economy would have implications on the country’s jobs, growth, sustainability, and decarbonisation objectives.

In this session, we will discuss the role of natural gas in India's energy transition story, the ‘one nation, one gas grid’ vision, and the uncertainties related to this future. This session will also mark the launch of a new working paper, 'India’s Natural Gas Future Amid Changing Global Energy Dynamics'.
