India Energy Week to be held in Goa from Feb 6

The India Energy Week, which is set for February 6 in Goa, intends to highlight India's aggressive pursuit of net-zero emissions as a paradigm for global climate action. The event, hosted by the Federation of Indian Petroleum Industry (FIPI), will highlight India's critical role as the world's third-largest energy consumer.


India aims to cut carbon emissions by 1 billion tonnes by 2030, with renewable energy accounting for 50% of total power generation by the same year. India has already reached a 10% ethanol blend in gasoline, five years ahead of schedule, and is on track for the 20% target.

India's progress toward its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) is impressive, establishing it as a global leader in sustainable energy initiatives. The dynamic energy situation poses continued challenges, but India's efforts can serve as a model for others.

Given India's growing population and economy, it has considerable energy demands, making it the world's third-largest crude oil importer. The India Energy Week will bring together energy ministers from 17 countries, industry leaders, and technical experts to debate energy transition plans and problems, as well as a road map for alternative fuels.

The event, which is expected to attract over 35,000 people, 350 exhibitors, and 400 speakers from 100 countries, shows India's commitment to defining the future of energy markets and fostering international collaboration on sustainable energy solutions.
