Draft National Energy Policy

The Government had tasked NITI Aayog to draft the National Energy Policy (NEP) which would reflect the priorities of the Government and also capture the opportunities that have emerged both in energy technologies and markets across the globe. The above policy would replace the Integrated Energy Policy framed by the erstwhile Planning Commission in 2008. Some of the key features are

The overarching policy recommendations are based on India’s energy ambitions for the year 2040. However, they propose early actions to achieve the Prime Minister’s bold announcements in the energy sector for the year 2022, as well as India’s NDCs for which the target year is 2030.

  •  The NEP anticipates major transformations on the energy demand and supply sides arising out of fast evolving technology, consumer behaviour and air quality considerations. It provides for a flexible energy system which would quickly respond to the market cues.
  • The broad objectives of the policy are: enhanced energy independence, increased access at affordable prices, greater sustainability and higher economic growth.
  •  The Policy suggests interventions to rapidly reduce the gap on energy consumption parameters between the rural and urban areas, and proposes 100% electrification and clean cooking coverage by 2022.
