Leading and firmly committed to global climate change agreements, India has been at the forefront of adoption of cleaner and sustainable solutions for its fast-growing energy needs.
LPG has been a key solution, which India embarked upon in an unprecedented way in 2014. In the last four years, Indian government increased LPG access to its rural population by almost 50 million LPG connections, under its flagship programme ‘Ujjwala’. The target has now been revised to 80 million.
With this, India is now the world’s 2nd largest consumer of LPG for domestic cooking applications, with annual volumes climbing up to 23 million tonnes in 2017-18. LPG access in India has reached almost 80% of its population of around 1.2 billion.
This offers unprecedented prospects for businesses, as well as for opportunities of unparalleled learnings to the global industry from one of the world’s fastest growing large markets.
