India’s Energy Strategy for Inclusive Sustainable Development
Keywords:Energy, Low Carbon, Inclusive Sustainable Development
Energy is critical for the growth of the economy as well as for human development. Not just electricity but also clean cooking fuels and fuels for mobility are required. India aspires to grow at a high rate over the next decade. How much energy would that require? What has been our policies? Why and how should it be changed and what kind of options do we have? I look at these issues in this paper.
