Energy is fundamental to the economic development of a society. Ensuring energy security is critical to the security, sovereignty, and well-being of any country. However, there is no consensus on the definition of energy security. Energy Security and Economic Development in India: a holistic approach attempts to construct an appropriate definition for the concept of energy security. The evolution of energy security is traced at both the global level and in the Indian context.
This book elaborates on the concept of energy security, highlights its linkages, enumerates India’s indigenous energy resources, examines the status of energy security in the country, and makes policy suggestions to ensure energy security in the country.
