7 Natural Gas Distribution Company Stocks in India

|

As the world moves toward more energy-efficient sources of fuel and power, investors are looking for clean energy bets in the equities arena. Because of the government's priority allocation of domestic gas to city gas distribution and the possibility for penetration into additional geographical areas, investors prefer to gamble on such enterprises primarily through the gas sector in India. Natural gas currently accounts for 6% of India's total energy consumption. However, due to the government's aggressive drive for environmentally friendly fuel, India's contribution might rise to 10% by 2025 and 15% by 2030.
