India energy: 2017 in review and what to look for in 2018

Report summary

2017 saw a slowdown in India's demand growth for oil products and imported LNG compared with recent years. This was a result of demonetisation in late 2016 and the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in 2017. On the other hand, coal production continued to grow. Gas output increased after five years of decline but oil production dropped marginally. Solar and wind capacity additions continued while renewable power tariffs continued to fall. A concerted push for cleaner energy should dominate the agenda in 2018 and beyond.
