India sees narrowing gap between clean energy, coal power

India has achieved an unexpected benefit on the energy front during this Covid-19 pandemic phase. The gap between the share of renewables and coal-fired power in India’s electricity generation sector has narrowed more than ever before.

IEA is of the view that the clean energy transition is good, both for the economy and the environment of India, the world’s third-largest energy consumer.


India-EU Strategic Partnership: A Roadmap to 2025

The Leaders held the 15thIndia-European Union Summit on the 15th July 2020. They endorsed this "India-EU Strategic Partnership: A Roadmap to 2025” as a common roadmap to guide joint action and further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership over the next five years. In a complex international environment, the Republic of India and the European Union, both "unions of diversity", sharing values of democracy, rule of law and human rights, are equally convinced of the necessity to preserve the rules-based international order and effective multilateralism. India and the EU have a common interest in each other's security, prosperity and sustainable development. They can contribute jointly to a safer, cleaner and more stable world. They therefore endeavour to develop further their Strategic Partnership, based on this Roadmap.
