Podcast - A double-edged sword for India’s energy sector? [GGP]

Like several countries before it, on 25 March India’s 1.3 billion population went into a 21-day lockdown, now extended to 3 May, enforced by its government in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The author argues that the net impact on India’s energy sector is likely to be shaped by three factors: government support measures to mitigate the economic fallout of the pandemic; the level of international oil prices – which could constrain or contribute to fiscal space; and, the global economic impact of the pandemic and its effect on the competitiveness of India’s energy sector.
