Gateway House Webcast: Diversifying India’s Clean Transport

In this webcast, we discuss the transport energy options for India. The government of India intends to pursue Electric Vehicles with aggression, both to help India meet its Climate Change commitments, as also to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels in the post corona era. But is it what India needs? Are the necessary raw materials for batteries accessible in both the near and short term? Can India readily abandon oil, now cheap and from a region which gives jobs to our expatriate population?

Oil in the post-COVID-19 world

The OPEC’s proposed cut in oil production earlier this week may not enable the energy market to recover. Recovery is likely only after COVID-19 is brought under control, but there are ways India can capitalise on the current low oil prices for its own energy security

Is rare earth still China’s dominant lever?

The second-most important issue on everyone's mind after the Coronavirus, is Rare Earths - those metallic elements like scandium and cerium, used in every aspect of modern electronics like our cell phones, rechargeable batteries, florescent lighting. The reason is: China. China has the world's largest deposits and production of rare earths, and has not hesitated to withhold its export to countries that disagree with it in the past.

Good and bad of low oil prices

The Coronavirus pandemic has caused crude oil prices to crash almost 40% even as Saudi Arabia and Russia pump more oil into the market. Fears are rife that this crisis will hit demand. There are repercussions on the U.S., the world’s top oil producer, on India, one of its new clients, and on the Gulf Cooperation Council countries

India-U.S. shale oil opportunity

U.S. President Donald Trump's recent visit to India gave a boost to bilateral energy ties. To really benefit, India’s state-owned oil companies should consider investing in U.S. shale oil. The U.S. is politically and economically stable and investors are not subject to arbitrary action. Indian companies should only be financial investors, not operators of assets, and bet on companies with manageable debt and efficient operations rather than short-term winners

Deepening bilateral ties

The deepening Indo-U.S. bilateral over the last two decades has resulted in a depth of economic and strategic relations. Bilateral trade is now $160 billion annually, and set to grow. Defence dominates the strategic partnership and therefore the economic engagement. The exciting new areas of alliance are technology, energy and space. There are surely differences between the two democracies, but these are aired publicly and restored through negotiations. For in a rapidly changing world, the strength of the partnership now and in the future, depends on collaboration. Gateway House has an extensive repository of primary research, analysis and reporting on the Indo-U.S. bilateral, addressing issues such as trade, technology exchange and defence cooperation.
