India to pip EU as world's 3rd largest power consumer by 2040: IEA



NEW DELHI: India will dislodge the European Union as the world’s third-largest energy consumer by 2030 as urbanised population expands and rapid economic growth pulls more people out of poverty, says the International Energy Agency’s second ‘India Energy Outlook’ released on Tuesday.


By 2040, India’s ricity sy em will be larger than the EU in terms of generation capacity and the country will have more renewable capacity than the US.


The country will contribute 25% of the global growth in energy demand through 2040, posting the largest increase for any country, the report says.


But this will also pose twin challenges of securing energy supplies and meeting the “swelling demand without exacerbating issues like costly energy imports, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions”.


IEA executive director Fatih Birol says, “The stakes could not be higher, for India and for the world. All roads to successful global clean energy transitions go via India.”

国际能源机构执行主任Fatih Birol说:“对印度和全世界来说,这关系重大。全球清洁能源转型的成功之路必定经过印度。”

To achieve such long term projects and goals, we need NDA led by Modhiji to continue for another Fifteen Years at least.




The pollution is already so bad you can barely breathe and most people coughing is because of high pollution. Looks like it is only going to get worse and there will be related lung diseases. What India also needs to do is get a handle on population growth.

Market economy global economy,large consumer market with affordability are in INDIA's favour making it consumer driven market demand promoting energy supply to INDIA both from within&without.A rising INDIA which is not a threat to global market will help in global peace&progress unlike the mercantile hegemonic CHINA.




Most remarkable thing in the Budget was the HYDROGEN MISSION - the fuel of the future. Thanks Modiji and Team. For pollution solution, there is no better solution.

I hope govt pushes for renewable power sources. Then only it makes sense. Otherwise it’ll cause more issues like the recent avnche.

Recent avnche washed away a renewable power source. Did you know that?

Creating a market for Adani Power ???




We need clean energy transition plan. We cannot rely on oil and gas for our energy needs. What are the states doing to increase clean energy transition?




Each house in Europe consumes so much power in heating that can light up an entire Indian village. Westerners have dest yed the equilibrium of planet Earth.

The data is coming from International Energy Agency, not form GOI. Please read before dismissing anything just because you don't like Modi.
