Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday discussed efforts to revamp strategic energy partnership between India and the US with the visiting US Presidential Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry.
Calling his meeting “productive”, Pradhan tweeted that the discussions focused “on collaborating on technology and finance to further develop mutually beneficial low-carbon pathways in fast-growing India’s energy market, including in gas, RE, biofuels & in hydrogen.”
RE stands for renewable energy.
“Also, discussed the ongoing efforts to revamp the strategic energy partnership with Energy Secretary @SecGranholm with focus on cleaner and green energies, including through the deployment of future technologies for carbon capture, battery storage and hydrogen,” he added.
Late last month, Pradhan had a meeting with US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm to discuss revamping strategic energy partnership between the two nations with a greater focus on cleaner energy sectors.
