The Energy Delegation visited IIT Madras Research Park, where a session on next-generation fuels and energy systems was held.
Lars Aagaard, Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Government of Denmark, said “Denmark is paving the way for investments in new technologies, which must scale. We see a great potential in sharing mutual knowledge with India and its engineers, which can help in implementing these technologies.”
Denmark’s Crown Prince is accompanied by a high-level delegation of Danish Ministers.
The Danish government launched a multi-layered strategic programme to support India’s green and sustainable development as well as to deepen trade links between the two nations in the water and energy sectors.
The Danish team highlighted strategies, technological advancements, and the most recent information on energy and water during the tour in order to assist India in becoming carbon neutral.
Regarding energy, Denmark is a global pioneer in the green transition and has a lot to offer in terms of renewable energy sources like wind, green hydrogen, and bioenergy, as well as energy efficiency at a green energy transition that is both efficient and affordable.
Given that India is presently the fourth-largest onshore wind market worldwide in terms of cumulative installed capacity, Denmark and India will also explore offshore wind strategies.
Tamil Nadu has identified 15 offshore locations to establish wind turbines.
“Denmark is collaborating to establish the first wind farm offshore in Tamil Nadu,” Aagaard added.
Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Denmark was also present at the event as Chief Guest.
