Report summary

Over the next two decades, India is poised to become one of the top 5 global economies and energy markets. We forecast India's energy demand to increase from 803 Mtoe in 2015 to almost 1,600 Mtoe by 2035. The government's focus on expanding the manufacturing sector, together with accelerating urbanisation and rising household incomes will translate to higher energy consumption across all sectors.However, its energy sector is challenged on two fronts – a complex regulatory and policy-making environment and 1.2 billion people with a tremendous appetite for energy that the country's resources cannot sufficiently provide. These challenges, if not overcome, could derail India's economic development. Key themes in this update: Lower energy prices boosts India's economy and energy demand Following coal reforms, the government turns its focus towards upstream oil and gas Commitment at COP21 points to bigger role for cleaner coal and renewables
