Cabinet sanctions RE Pact between India and Denmark

The Union cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that it has given its endorsement for a cooperation agreement between Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and Denmark’s Ministry for Energy, Utilities and Climate.

The pact consents strategic cooperation in renewable energy with focus on offshore wind energy and a Letter of Intent to institute an Indo-Danish Centre of Excellence for renewable energy in India. The agreement was contracted in March this year.

“The areas of cooperation would include technical capacity building for management of off¬shore wind projects, measures to develop and sustain an efficient wind industry, onshore as well as offshore; measures to ensure high quality of wind turbines, components, and certification requirements; forecasting and scheduling of off-shore wind,” an official announcement said.

The Centre of Excellence in Integrated Renewable Power would work on renewable energy resource assessment with focus on onshore and offshore wind; hybridization of wind, solar, hydro and storage technologies; integration of renewable energy and high level of wind energy, Testing and R&D; and skill development or capacity building.

The authorization of the documents is anticipated to help in strengthening mutual cooperation between the two countries.
