How can India ensure long term energy security?

Current situation :

Along with renewables for utility level electricity generation push for electric cars is needed :

Piyush Goyal the minister for energy, coal and renewables had announced that India can become a 100% electric vehicle nation by 20304. He had stated that his ministry is contemplating innovative financing schemes to monetize the savings on petroleum products and also provide cheap electricity and thereby make electric cars an attractive proposition. The government has also offered Tesla land near major port cities to facilitate export of their cars to South East Asian countries. The automobile penetration rate in India is low and will pick up along with economic growth, so it is an opportune moment to introduce electric cars in India. So electric cars are not a thing of the distant future for India but a need of the near future.
