INDIA’S ENERGY SECURITY AND CENTRAL ASIA’S ENERGY RESOURCES
Ambrish Dhaka, Assistant professor, School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi, India)
This century will witness the twilight of organic energy sources and perhaps the dawn of commercially successful non-organic sources. The mere truth that the former are non-renewable is a major caveat to their incessant use for future needs. This general parameter has several nuances for estimating how optimally and judiciously they can be used and how long we need to survive on them before newer technology comes to take their place. Among the most important indicators are the shifts in energy source composition and the changes in the end-sector consumption packet. These shifts and changes reflect the various production possibility curves which can be projected beyond the energy horizons.
This has indeed been one of the important determinants for India in devising a cogent state of sustained energy input without too much single-handed reliance on external sources. “The Indian economy has managed to maintain its growth momentum in spite of…………….
