India aims to achieve a US$5 trillion economy. However, 2019 saw a major economic slowdown, despite being an election year. Policy uncertainty and energy supply deficit remain high but so does the demand potential. As we enter 2020, the focus needs to be on ramping up energy and infrastructure investments. Equally vital will be electrification of the transport sector and increased penetration of renewables.
