The change in India’s energy security framework is clearly evident in its geopolitics and foreign policy relations. India has emerged as the flagbearer for the adoption of solar energy with the formulation of the International Solar Alliance (ISA). The alliance now has a growing list of member countries jointly working towards a global implementation of solar energy initiatives. With the mounting challenge of addressing climate change and sustainable development concerns, the need to address India’s energy security framework within geopolitical, governance and SDG framework is pertinent and the need of the hour.
The Energy dialogues jointly implemented by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung India office (KAS) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) deliberated on some major challenges and opportunities that are prevalent in the Indian energy sector and its implications for the world.
The publication is the culmination of joint efforts to bring together academicians, policymakers and thinkers on energy security, to discuss the new paradigms, perspectives and approaches that are shaping the global energy discourse.
