As India continues to industrialize rapidly, it is entering its most energy-intensive phase of economic growth -- building new infrastructure and increasing the use of transportation. Its energy demand was nearly 700mtoe (million tonnes of oil equivalent) in 2010. According to a McKinsey report, this is expected to cross 1500mtoe by 2030.
