Trends in Indian development assistance in the energy sector

This report provides an overview of Indian development assistance in the energy sector and offers recommendations in the future. In addition to spurring general socio-economic development in the Global South, Indian assistance in the energy sector continues to be driven by New Delhi’s desire to strengthen the capacity of its neighbours to export energy. India has an exceptionally strong focus on the energy sector in percentage terms of development assistance. Looking forward, as India’s economy grows, a rising energy demand will likely mean Indian assistance to power-sector projects – especially in the South Asian region – will increase substantially.
