India and Denmark have jointly launched the ‘Centre of Excellence on Offshore Wind’ as part of the Green Strategic Partnership.

The Centre was launched by, from the India side, Union Minister for Power and New and Renewable Energy, RK Singh and Dan Jørgensen, Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, from the Denmark side.

Discussing the potential of green energy, RK Singh said that India is looking at making Ladakh and islands such as Andaman Nicobar and Lakshadweep green in energy including transport.

Further, the newly-launched Centre of Excellence (COE) would at the outset be centered around 4 working groups i.e. a) spatial planning; b) financial framework conditions; c) supply chain infrastructure; and d) standards and testing.

In its initial phases, the COE would focus on the offshore wind sector, while in the medium to long term, the Centre would broaden to include a wider group of international governments and players, accumulating experience and best practices on the offshore wind and become an international centre for offshore wind and with broader links to new and renewable energy.

During the meeting, the two sides agreed to further their cooperation in the field of renewable energy with a focus on offshore wind energy.

Meanwhile, the two countries already have an agreement on ‘Strategic Sector Cooperation in the field of Renewable Energy with a focus on Offshore Wind Energy’.
