India and Germany signed an MoU to further their cooperation in the wind energy sector. Germany, which is a pioneer in wind energy, both off shore and on shore, expressed its willingness to share technology to promote green energy to combat greenhouse gases.
Robert Habeck, a Green Party minister of energy, agriculture, environment and rural areas from the state of Schleswig Holstein announced that the country is ready to share expertise in renewable energy to assuage the ill effects of fossil fuel which Germany as well as other European countries promoted since 1970s. The MoU was signed between the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers Association and Messe Husum in Chennai on Monday. “We have a responsibility to promote green energy in big markets like India. Through this agreement, it would be possible for companies to invest in offshore and onshore wind energy. India’s achievement in renewable energy is incredible and the MoU will lead to sharing of knowledge,” Habeck told.
