Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark met in early April with India’s Minister for Power, New & Renewable Energy, Coal and Mines, Piyush Goyal, to affirm their governments’ joint commitment to an enhanced Energy for Growth Partnership between their countries.
Part of the partnership is a £20 million fund for technical assistance given by the UK to “support priority areas for collaboration on power, renewables, energy access and efficiency and oil and gas.”
This fund is an addition to the existing £10 million Power Sector Reform Programme already in place.
The UK is also the largest investor in a multilateral Clean Technology Fund for India worth US$775 million (roughly £606 million).
