This book explores the opportunities and challenges in articulating and implementing a robust but flexible set of strategies for meeting India’s primary energy needs. It presents a case to make India’s energy system more resilient to drive India’s economic growth and more equitable to fulfil the basic energy needs of all citizens in an uncertain future. It emphasises on the demand and supply sides of the energy system and deals with it as a whole rather than following a sectoral approach. It also discusses infrastructure for an integrated energy system, technology for a productive energy system, and pricing for an efficient energy system.
The book has been published in collaboration with Shell’s scenarios group based in The Hague and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
