Domestic production of energy has been sluggish in response to demand, and energy imports have increased by 5.5 per cent per annum during 2010-14.

Abstract: Energy consumption in India has increased greatly since the 1980s, but domestic production has remained sluggish. Renewable energy now offers a remedy to the low domestic production levels.
