Council will be leading a delegation to India Energy Week from February 6-8, 2023, in Bengaluru, India. Hosted and led by India’s Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOPNG), India Energy Week presents an exclusive opportunity to engage directly with senior Indian government officials, regulators, and business leaders in the energy sector.

USIBC’s delegation will be led by Ambassador Atul Keshap, USIBC President, Shreerupa Mitra, USIBC Deputy Manging Director, Sidhanta Mehra, Director for Energy, Environment, and Infrastructure, and Raghvendra Upadhya, Director for Energy, Environment, and Infrastructure.

The delegation’s engagements will include a high-level meeting with Shri Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, and Housing and Urban Affairs, a roundtable on U.S.-India Energy Transition Cooperation with MOPNG, and numerous industry briefings and sideline meetings with officials.

“This delegation represents our membership’s commitment to India’s G20 vision, and desire to support India’s twin needs of energy security and energy transition,” said Ambassador Keshap. As India’s energy sector grows, the importance of a high-trust economic partnership between the United States and India is critical.

USIBC members will discuss tax frameworks to accelerate the expansion of India’s clean energy capacity, the importance of U.S.-India commercial partnership in bolstering innovation for new fuels like green hydrogen, and the role of Liquified Natural Gas as a transition fuel in India’s energy blend.

USIBC members support India’s 2030 goals of 500 GW of renewable energy, and Prime Minister Modi’s target that half the nation’s energy needs be met by clean energy sources. “By working closely with global energy companies to upgrade its energy blend, India can forge a new model for sustainable and climate sensitive development,” said Shreerupa Mitra.

Energy Week is the first event that USIBC will attend as part of its engagement with India’s G20 agenda. With India on track to become the world’s most populous country this year and its status as the fastest growing major economy, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sees India’s host year as a special opportunity to advance importance conversations on sustainable development and inclusive growth.
