Through IEW, India offers the world a template for balancing the dual challenges of energy security and energy transition
India Energy Week (IEW) 2024, set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Goa on February 6, 2024, is emerging as a significant event on the global energy calendar, bringing together key figures from the energy sector to deliberate on the future of energy.
This year's edition is especially significant as it will be addressed by energy ministers from Libya, Sudan, Ghana, Nigeria, Djibouti, Sri Lanka, and other energy-producing nations, alongside key decision-makers in the oil and gas market.
The presence of the Secretary-General of OPEC, Haithan Al Ghais, embodies the event's importance in shaping global energy policies.
According to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), achieving 'Aatmanirbharta' (self-reliance) in energy requirements has been a key focus area.
The India Energy Week 2024 being held from February 6-9, 2024, will be India’s largest and only all-encompassing energy exhibition and conference, bringing together the entire energy value chain, and will serve as a catalyst for India's energy transition goals. As part of the event, Prime Minister Modi will hold a roundtable with Global oil & gas CEOs and experts.
Organized under the aegis of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India, IEW 2024 aims to foster discussions on energy transition, sustainability, and the future of the energy sector.
