Energy, Oil and Gas and Nuclear Law

The energy sector is the backbone of modern industry and the global economy, supplying power to billions of people every day. India uses a combination of petroleum, coal, natural gas, and renewables to produce 22,315 kWh of electricity each year. As of 2020, the world currently meets 84% of its energy needs using fossil fuels, but as renewable energy grows cheaper and more viable, this number is expected to go down dramatically in the next few years.
