India’s Renewable Transition with Strong Engagement from Denmark

The objective of this country session on Denmark at Global RE-Invest India is to illustrate the strong commitment and engagement from Denmark in India’s green transition – particularly in the area of renewable energy and more specifically wind energy – and to chart the way ahead.

This partnership in renewable energy dates back several decades with Danish companies engaged in developing the wind energy sector of India through research, development, supply, and service of wind turbines – and more recently also as investors and operators of wind parks. Further, leading Danish wind companies have established large manufacturing plants in India.

With India’s targets of reaching 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022 and with the Danish wind industry strongly present and fully engaged in India, a strong collaboration is formed to further accelerate India’s expansion in wind energy. Our governments further support this common endeavour through a green strategic partnership and the Indian-Danish Energy Partnership.

In this session, strong stakeholders from government and private sector share their experiences and visions on how to further build and improve this partnership – to build India’s renewable energy capacity with a particular focus on wind energy.


GOVERNMENTAL CO-OPERATION PROGRAMMES

The Green Strategic Partnership between India and Denmark
This partnership was formalized in September 2020 by Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The partnership reaffirms the close political and friendship ties between the two countries and sets a framework for enhancing the collaboration in important areas of green growth such as energy, climate change, environment, water, circular economy and sustainable urban development including Smart Cities.

The India Denmark Energy Partnership
The Indian-Danish Energy Partnership (INDEP), which started in 2020, is focused on three key areas: Energy planning and scenario modelling; integration of high share of renewable energy into the grid; and offshore wind development. The partnership aims at supporting the ambitious Indian target of 175 GW by 2022 and long-term target of 450 GW renewable energy capacity. See more at www.ens.dk/en - search “India”

The Indo-Danish energy cooperation will contribute to a cost-effective green transition in India with focus on offshore wind, energy planning and integration of renewable energy. The Indian President Narendra Modi has repeatedly highlighted: ”Denmark has the skills, and India has the scale”.

Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities Dan Jørgensen says: “The strong Danish-Indian cooperation on green energy is flourishing while we join hands in the global endeavor to reduce climate change. Both countries have ambitious national energy targets, and together we can show the rest of the world how to deliver on these goals. Green energy is not only a crucial weapon in the fight against climate change, it is also good for business.”
