India’s request for full membership in the International Energy Agency (IEA) represents a significant stride in global energy governance. Initiated in October 2023, this move comes after India’s association with the IEA since 2017. India’s evolving role in the global energy economy and the strategic importance of its inclusion are central to this development. Full membership in the IEA would not only enhance global energy security but also amplify the IEA’s international influence, especially in its interactions with the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). India’s robust economic growth and escalating energy demand make its participation increasingly vital. However, challenges remain, including meeting the IEA’s membership criteria like OECD membership and maintaining sufficient oil reserves. The way forward involves ongoing discussions and potential adjustments to the IEA’s framework to accommodate India’s unique position.
