The Government of India and the Government of Denmark have signed a MoU for new and renewable energy cooperation between Danish and Indian companies with the purpose of developing new and renewable energy technologies. Under this MoU, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate of the Kingdom of Denmark signed a strategic sector cooperation agreement in the field of renewable energy, with a focus on offshore wind energy.
The main objectives of the cooperation agreement are:
- Technical capacity enhancement for off-shore wind project.
- Measures to create and sustain a highly efficient onshore as well as offshore wind sector.
- Measures to ensure that wind turbines and their components are of high quality as well as certification standards.

In November 2021, India’s Science and Technology Minister held an online discussion with the UK Science Minister, during which the two addressed green energy collaboration between the two countries among other issues. The India-UK Science and Technology relationship is rapidly expanding, with a combined research programme that has grown from absolutely nothing to close to £300-400 million.
