India to achieve 20 percent ethanol blending in petrol by 2025
.

The four pillars of India’s energy security strategy include supply diversification, increased exploration and production, alternative energy sources, and energy transition via a gas-based economy, green hydrogen, etc.
India has managed to survive the oil crisis, the most severe energy crisis the world has experienced since 1973. Thanks to its four-pronged energy security plan, which includes diversification of energy supplies, expanding India’s exploration and production footprint, and addressing the energy transition through a gas-based economy, green hydrogen, and EVs. India has grown the number of its crude oil suppliers from 27 countries in 2006–07 to 39 in 2021–22 by adding new suppliers like Columbia, Russia, Libya, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, etc., along with increasing relationships with nations like the US and Russia.
Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of Petroleum and Natural gas says, “Diesel prices, which in India between December 2021 and December 2022 rose by only 3 percent, went up by 34 percent in the USA, 36 percent in Canada, 25 percent in Spain and 10 percent in the UK. There was a massive impact due to the Central excise cuts announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister in May 2022 and November 2021, amounting to ₹13 per liter of petrol and ₹15 per liter on diesel cumulatively, along with significant VAT rate cuts by many Indian states. Govt. of India intends to increase India’s exploration acreage to 0.5 million sq. km. by 2025 and 1.0 million sq. km. by 2030. The Govt. has been successful in reducing the ‘No Go’ area by 99 percent, opening .91 million sq. km. of acreage; we have also established the National Data Repository (NDR) and plans are afoot for a cloud-based and AI/ML-powered National Data NDR 2.0.”
India has boosted the ethanol content of gasoline from 1.53 percent in 2013–2014 to 10.17 percent in 2022 and has accelerated its objective to attain 20 percent ethanol blending in petrol from 2030 to 2025–2026. E20 will begin and roll out on April 1, 2023. Additionally, the government is building five 2G ethanol bio-refineries across the nation: at Panipat (Parali) in Haryana, Bathinda in Punjab, Bargarh (Parali) in Odisha, Numaligarh (Bamboo) in Assam, and Devangere in Karnataka.
The centre has also increased the SATAT scheme rate for compressed biogas (CBG) plants from 46/kg to 54/kg, and the center is taking steps to ensure that biomanure produced during CBG production is bundled with fertilisers such as urea. An inventive, patent-protected indoor solar cooking system by IOCL that is replicable both in India and around the world is portable, rechargeable, and always connected to the kitchen.
The National Green Hydrogen Mission would receive investments of ₹19,744 crores from the Indian government in order to establish green hydrogen production capacity of at least 5 MMT (million metric tonnes) annually. The majority of the fuel’s demand comes from India’s petroleum refineries, and MoP and NG will actively pursue green hydrogen to promote the growth of the emerging sector. By May 2024, OMCs intend to have installed 22,000 retail outlets with alternative fuel stations (EV charging, CNG, LPG, LNG, CBG, etc.).
