The study analyses how much investment India needs to meet its 2070 net-zero target, and the gap that must be filled to finance the investments in electricity (generation, integration, transmission, and distribution), hydrogen (production), and vehicles (manufacturing).

With investment gap estimated to be at USD 3.5 trillion, aggregate investment support India needs would be about USD 1.4 trillion or an average of USD 28 billion per year.
