India’s Leapfrog to Methanol Economygif-image

by Dr. V. K. Saraswat, Member, NITI Aayog and Ripunjaya Bansal, Young Professional

Energy is considered as of the key inputs for economic development of the Country. India is poised to play a significant role in the Global energy space, as it is likely to account for 25% of the rise in global energy demand by 20403. Our Country’s energy demand is expected to rise at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5% till 2040 as it advances on the path of development4. India imported 37% of its total primary energy demand in 2015-16, whereas the import dependence of crude oil and natural gas has increased from 73% and 17% in 2005-06 to 81% and 40% in 2015-16 respectively. However, there has been a dismal growth in domestic oil (CAGR – 1.4%) and natural gas (0.01%) production over the last decade. Methanol and Dimethyl ether (DME) can play an important role in order to contain the rising imports and improve the energy security of India.
