According to Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, and Housing and Urban Affairs, Mr. Hardeep Puri, 25% of the increase in the world's energy demand over the next two decades will come from India.

He said India's energy policy takes into account commitments to the global commons, the green transition, and making sure that everyone has access to, and can afford, energy.

These comments were given by Mr. Puri on Tuesday at a roundtable in Houston, Texas, on "Opportunities in the India-US Strategic Partnership." He said that India had made significant progress toward low-carbon growth, notably by utilising cutting-edge technologies like hydrogen and biofuels.

The Minister emphasised that despite the difficult energy environment now in place, India's commitment to energy transitions and its targets for climate mitigation will not waver.
