The Indian power system is the third-largest in the world with 373 gigawatts (GW) generation capacity and 300 million customers. Of this, about 300GW was built in the last 25 years, and India’s progress on the renewable energy front has been very impressive. Now, we have about 80GW of renewable energy resources, the majority of which was added in the last 10 years. In this journey, India was richly assisted by the US, UK, Japan and Germany via bilateral energy partnership programmes. Among these, the US-India energy partnership is the longest-running and has been continuously expanding in both scope and impact.
Over the past two decades, the US-India energy cooperation has constantly evolved and progressed despite government changes in both countries. This relationship has only strengthened as both parties see value in it. We hope to further strengthen this with the newly elected government in the US.Source : https://www.livemint.com/opinion/columns/us-programmes-a-plus-for-india-s-energy-playbook-11604499293777.html
