Development Challenge around Multiple Objectives

Rethinking India’s Energy Policy

An energy supply approach is inadequate to India’s energy requirements at a time when multiple objectives need to be addressed. The state of play in energy supply and demand is examined, and the recovery of an older tradition of attention to energy demand patterns in addition to energy supply is argued for.

Shifts in governance patterns are a necessary part of transitioning to a broader, and more development-focused approach to energy policy.
