  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The management of the energy sector is split between several ministries: the Ministry of Power for electricity and the coordination of energy conservation programmes; the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas; the Ministry of Coal; and, finally...

  • Energy Supply


    India has substantial coal reserves at its disposal (56.1 Gt of proven reserves); however, a large part of the coal is poor quality. Its proven lignite reserves are estimated at 4.5 Gt (concentrated in Tamil Nadu).

    Natural gas reserves are estimated at 1 490 bcm (2015). Additionally,...

  • Energy Prices


    In 2010 the Government liberalised the price of motor gasoline. In 2014 it fully liberalised diesel prices, which resulted in a 5.7% decrease in the diesel price. It will enable the Government to end the costly diesel subsidies, which amounted to about 1.4% of GDP in the fiscal year 2013-2014....

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita remains very low: 0.68 toe in 2015, compared to 1.8 toe per capita at the global level, and 1.41 toe per capita in the Asian region. Electricity consumption per capita was 795 kWh in 2015, vs a global average of 2 820 kWh per capita and 2 187 kWh in Asia....

  • Issues & Prospects

    The energy sector is faced with two difficulties: the level of oil production is low while the consumption is rising sharply, leading to more imports; and sizeable investments are needed to increase energy production and improve infrastructure.

    Using its in-house POLES forecast model,...
