India will continue to lead global sustainable energy agenda: Dhamendra Pradhan

@teriin
Petroleum Minister Dhamendra Pradhan has said that India will continue to lead the global sustainable energy agenda. He was delivering the key note address at the TERI’s World Sustainable Development Summit 2020 on ‘Energy Future Road Map’ in New Delhi today. Mr Pradhan said, India is in the midst of a major transformative shift in the energy sector, both in scale and complexity and also the interdependence across different systems. He said, the trajectory to end energy poverty in India, as compared to the rest of the world, is based on the special national circumstances. The Minister added that the right mix of enablers are being put in place to ensure that the energy transition is secure, affordable, reliable and sustainable. He assured that to end energy poverty in the country, Government will remain cognizant of the need to root economic development firmly to achieve the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals and commitments made at COP 21.

Speaking about energy requirements, the Minister said, India is now the third largest energy consumer after the US and China. Mr Pradhan said, Government is finding ways to achieve the twin objectives of more energy availability and less carbon through a healthy mix of all commercially-viable energy sources.  He said the Government has set out a road map for reducing India's crude oil imports by 10 per cent by 2022. The Government is working towards transformation to a gas-based economy, tapping into indigenously produced biofuels, apart from adopting renewable energy and energy efficiency measures, to achieve the much-needed carbon reductions. The Minister stressed that India will continue to play an active role in leading the global sustainable energy agenda.
