Japan set to expand energy transition support to India

Japan plans to provide support to India to drive the transition to clean energy, expanding a programme it launched last year for Southeast Asian nations.

Japan’s ‘Asia Energy Transition Initiative’ initially targeted supporting countries in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) pushing towards net-zero carbon emissions, including USD10 billion in finance for renewable energy, energy efficiency and liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects. Specific support includes support for ASEAN countries in the Asian roadmap towards carbon neutrality, which will be expanded to include India.
