This article looks at whether the exploitation of shale gas could end India’s energy crisis. The authors argue that the country currently lacks the technical capabilities necessary to utilize its recoverable resources. Furthermore, shale gas exploitation would aggravate the country’s water pollution problem. As a result, the authors conclude that India ought to increase its energy efficiency, not its efforts in the exploitation of shale gas.
