This book is a comprehensive examination of the dynamics of India’s energy security policy in the domestic and international context. Over the past decade and a half, energy security has been a constant driver of India’s foreign policy. Successive Indian governments have emphasized it as a major concern, next only to food security. The long-term satisfaction of India’s energy security needs calls for a fresh and multi-pronged approach. This is imperative in the light of the recent dynamics of India’s foreign policy and the challenges that India is facing in its quest for energy security, mainly in the context of diversification of sources abroad and shift to alternative sources in a carbon-controlled environment. This is further intensified in the context of the complex and competitive strategic rivalry between India and China in the Indo-Pacific region, as India looks outward and expands its outreach to meet its pressing energy security challenges. The book presents an in-depth analysis of all such domestic and foreign policy challenges and measures to meet India’s fast-growing energy demand in a competitive geopolitical environment.
