Energy Policy Planning in India-Case of Petroleum and Natural Gas.pdf

Case of Petroleum and Natural Gas Neelanjana Mitra Many developing countries are still using energy planning methods developed to face the challenges of industrial countries. A review of the energy policy planning exercises done in India by the government so far shows that most of the studies have used the traditional regression models or the end-use models, which were used by energy policy-makers in developed countries, for projecting energy demand; after estimating demand, the various supply options have been examined to meet this estimated demand. But, the integration of the supply and demand sides was done only recently in order to find out the minimum cost at which a certain projected growth rate of the economy can be sustained. An integrated approach helps to identify steps which connect the appropriate primary energy forms with the required useful energy so as to increase the efficiency of the entire energy system.
