India’s energy strategy: Former GLF Arunabha Ghosh publishes essay in Nature
In a recently published essay in Nature, former Global Leaders Fellow Arunabha Ghosh and his co-author Karthik Ganesan assess India’s energy strategy.
They argue that India’s strategy ought to address the needs of poor and rural households, target subsidies and support low-carbon industries.
The essay highlights the disparities in access to energy: more than one-third of India’s households, predominantly poor and rural ones, are not connected to the electricity grid. Subsidies can exacerbate inequalities: the richest 20% receive 39% of the liquid petroleum gas subsidies.
