Hugh Fraser International lines up new alliance for India energy ventures

HFI has announced a major push to support clients on energy ventures in the burgeoning India market. A new legal network alliance partnership has been announced with Mukund Puranik, ex counsel with Reliance Industries, who is based in Mumbai.

The International Energy Agency's India Energy Outlook 2021 special report highlights the wide range of energy-related opportunities emerging right across the energy spectrum from the pressures to increase domestic gas production to offset energy export costs and the net zero investments needed in solar, wind, carbon capture, battery storage, electrification of transport, energy efficiency and hydrogen.

India is clearly recognised as a net zero battleground with major increases in projected emissions potentially offsetting emissions reductions in western Europe unless net zero plans are implemented without delay.
