India is set to partner with Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) to develop and promote clean energy technologies, including hydrogen.
The collaboration, which was announced on Friday, will focus on joint research and development projects in the areas of hydrogen, energy storage, and solar photovoltaics. The two sides will also work to transfer knowledge and technology between India and Germany to support the adoption of these technologies in both countries.
The partnership is part of India’s efforts to increase the use of clean energy and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. Hydrogen is seen as a key component of India’s clean energy strategy, as it can be used as a fuel for transport and industrial applications, as well as for power generation.
Fraunhofer ISE is one of the world’s leading research institutions in the field of solar energy and has extensive expertise in hydrogen technologies. The institute has developed a range of technologies for producing and storing hydrogen, including electrolysis, which uses renewable energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
The collaboration with Fraunhofer ISE is expected to provide India with access to the latest hydrogen technologies and help accelerate the country’s transition to a clean energy economy. The partnership will also provide opportunities for Indian researchers and businesses to collaborate with their counterparts in Germany and gain exposure to international best practices and standards.
The partnership between India and Fraunhofer ISE is a significant step towards achieving the country’s ambitious clean energy goals and supporting the global transition to a low-carbon future. It is expected to pave the way for further collaborations between India and Germany in the field of renewable energy and sustainability.
