India energy month in brief - What does the monsoon season mean for energy?

Report summary

In our every month-in-brief, we explore the latest developments and themes happening across India's upstream, downstream, gas, coal and power sectors. In this edition, we look at the implication of the Indian monsoon on its energy sector. 75% of India's rainfall happens between June to September. Given the lack of water storage and irrigation infrastructure, large parts of agriculture lands are dependent on the amount of rainfalls received during the monsoon season. The monsoon impact however goes beyond the agriculture GDP. It affects policy, commodity demand, health and also poses significant downside risks, such as severe flooding.
