Time To Act On US-India Energy Cooperation

Although India accounts for 17 percent of the global population, it possesses less than one percent of the world's oil and gas reserves and only 10 percent of global coal reserves. With energy demand projected to double in the next decade, imports could rise from 30 percent of primary energy demand today to 50 percent by 2030, making India one of the most energy-import-dependent economies among the major global powers.
