Energy Patterns in India

V P Gupta (Author) Sneh Gupta (Author)
Synopsis An attempt has been made in this book to analyse the patterns of conventional and non-conventional energy in India. The study identifies the reasons for the enlarging energy deficits in India and suggests measures to reduce the widening gap between demand and supply of energy. A detailed and comprehensive analysis of the structure of energy generation, distribution, consumption and losses has been made with respect to India. The study examines in detail the consumption and production of commercial sources of energy, namely, electricity, coal, oil and gas in India. It also highlights the problems encountered by the Government of Rajasthan in providing uninterrupted and regular supply of power to different categories of consumers, namely, domestic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, etc. The study also demonstrates the efforts made by the state governments to develop new and renewable sources of energy like biogas, solar energy, wind energy and biomass. The study also examines the growth of rural electrification in India and its inadequacies. The book is useful for students, researchers, academicians, economists and policy-makers who are working in the field of energy. The book will also be useful in forming a rational energy policy for the government.
