With market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities. Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • The country has an ambitious target of 500 GW of non-fossil fuel capacity in 2030.
  • It pledges to reach carbon-neutrality by 2070.
  • Fossil fuel production is dominated by state-owned companies: CIL for coal and ONGC for gas and oil.
  • Private companies own half of the power capacity.
  • Coal production reached its highest level in 2022, supplying almost 3/4 of the power production.
  • More than 50 GW of solar has been installed since 2016.
  • Diesel and gasoline prices rose by 20% since 2020.
  • Gas prices more than tripled in 2022.
  • Electricity prices are declining since 2019.
  • Energy consumption keeps increasing rapidly (7%/year since 2020).
  • Coal consumption is still growing sharply, following electricity production needs.
  • Power production is expected to grow by around 5%/year by 2031, with the share of coal decreasing to 50% and renewables filling most of the gap (44%).
  • The country plans to double its refining capacity by 2025.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The management of the energy sector is split between several ministries: the Ministry of Power (MoP) for electricity and the coordination of energy conservation programmes; the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG); the Ministry of Coal; and, finally, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production has been declining since 2010, reaching 33 Mt in 2022 (-11% since 2019).

    India is the world's third largest importer of crude oil, reaching its highest level in 2022 at 232 Mt (+9.6%). In 2022, crude oil imports represented 88% of the country's oil needs. The country is a net oil product exporter (17 Mt in 2022), although its net exports have fallen by 42% since 2018.

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices have been declining since 2019 by 10%/year to US$10c/kWh for industry and by 4%/year to US$6c/kWh for households.

    Prices for the agricultural sector are highly subsidized, leading to exceptionally high consumption for this sector. Household electricity prices are also cross subsidised by industry.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita remains around 0.7 toe (2022), half the Asian average. Electricity consumption per capita reached 930 kWh in 2022, about a third of the Asian average.

    Total energy consumption continued to grow very rapidly (8% in 2021 and 6.5% in 2022) and exceeded 1 Gtoe in 2022 for the first time. It had increased rapidly over 2010-2022 (3.5%/year).

  • Issues & Prospects

    The energy sector is faced with several challenges: the level of oil production is low, while the consumption is rising sharply, leading to more imports. In both oil and gas sectors, sizeable investments are needed to increase energy production and improve infrastructure, especially for supporting larger imports.
