Eurasian Energy Futures Initiative Nonresident Senior Fellow Micha’el Tanchum writes for Asia & The Pacific Policy Society on India’s move toward a natural gas-powered economy and its increase in domestically produced coal bed methane: 


In its June 2015 Global Economics Prospects report, the World Bank for the first time placed India ahead of China as the growth leader among the world’s major economies.

While certainly an accomplishment which Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi can tout, India’s sustained economic growth will be dependent on New Delhi’s ability to secure reliable and affordable energy supplies to power India’s increasingly dynamic economy. Thus, any genuine Modi economic miracle turns on how well the Prime Minister’s government manages its energy policy.
