Abstract

ndia has experienced and is expected to continue experiencing accelerating growth and substantive changes in the scope, scale and form in which human and economic activity is arranged and performed within its boundaries. This, in turn, will impact on the types and ways in which energy is accessed, transformed and used. The country’s current population of over one billion people is spread over an area of 329 million hectares (3.29 million square kilometres). In terms of geographical area it is the seventh largest country in the world. It is also the second most populous country and is projected by the UN to be the most populous by 2030 (UN 1990). The country exhibits wide variations in climate, topology and geography and also has wide economic, social, ethnic, religious and cultural differences amongst its inhabitants. This heterogeneity accounts for differences in habits, attitudes and lifestyles and also manifests itself in varying levels and patterns of energy use throughout the country.
