Abstract

This book chapter assesses the issues related to the Indian energy sector through a geopolitical and energy security lens, focusing on the energy access and economic drivers that have helped shape these lenses historically and their impact on the future. The energy needs of the Indian economy and the policy drivers linking them are of increasing relevance to global energy producers and consumers seeking to understand their impact on the energy markets worldwide. Indian imports of fossil and non-fossil fuels have impacted markets and policies. The Indian energy economy is also in the midst of an energy transition with an increasing share of renewables that has significant ramifications for global energy markets and the politics of climate obligations and just transition. The confluence of these issues is shaping energy markets and will be critical for future researchers in the energy domain to study and understand.
