Energy

Denmark is a world leader in renewable energy and a laboratory for green solutions. The country has one of the world’s most ambitious, legally binding climate target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent by 2030 (compared to the 1990 level). Supporting India’s green energy transition and the Indian government’s ambition of reaching 450 GW of renewable energy capacity, the two countries have an active technical cooperation in the field of Energy.

The Indo-Danish cooperation on renewable energy started in 2018 with a Strategic Sector Cooperation with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) focused on offshore wind and the new 5-year India-Denmark Energy Partnership is now expanding the cooperation to include both MNRE and the Ministry of Power (MOP). The thematic focus areas are; offshore wind, integrated renewable power, energy planning and modelling, power system flexibility, integration of high share of renewable energy and electricity markets. India’s approach to energy transition will have a significant impact on the country's economic growth and job creation as well as on the success of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
