India under Modiji targets spectacular achievement - Natural gas and renewable energy driving decarbonization in India

Soon India is set to become the world’s largest energy consumer - particularly for fossil fuels - along with China. Indian energy demand is projected to grow by three percent per annum until 2030. At the 11th IEF-IEA-OPEC Symposium on energy outlooks the Minister of Oil and Gas Dharmendra Pradhan proclaimed India’s plan for decarbonization with the use of natural gas.

While developing renewable energy at the same time, PM Modi of India has embarked on the sustainability road by betting big on natural gas as a base-load fuel. Renewable energy is energy collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, including carbon neutral sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. As announced in 2019, a total budget of $60 billion will be dedicated to modernizing the gas infrastructure of India, which currently occupies the world’s third spot in terms of GHG emissions.
