    India's Energy Future: Multiple transitions

    Panel Markets/Economics/Strategy

    How does India’s commitment to deep decarbonization in the near term, and to net zero by 2070 at the Glasgow COP26 fit in the context of the country’s multiple, sometimes conflicting, policy objectives of energy security, affordable access, and environmental integrity? Against this backdrop, how will India deliver on its multiple promises and manage its energy transition? What are the long-term strategies for the coal sector, with its strong political-economic implications? How will the financially ailing distribution companies manage growing shares of variable renewables and electric vehicles while maintaining grid reliability? What is the roadmap and expectations from new or nascent technologies such as batteries, hydrogen, and CCUS? Is there a role for gas as a bridge fuel in the transition or will coal continue to be the king? What reforms are needed in the governance and fiscal space to introduce dynamism into India’s low-carbon inclusive growth aspirations?
