USA and India collaborate to launch renewable energy technology action platform

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) and India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) have introduced the US-India Renewable Energy Technology Action Platform (RETAP).

In its initial phase, RETAP is focused on key areas like green and clean hydrogen, wind energy, long-duration energy storage, and also explores potential in emerging technologies such as geothermal energy and ocean/tidal energy. The collaborative framework for RETAP has been meticulously outlined by DOE and MNRE, guided by five overarching themes: research and development, innovative technology piloting and testing, advanced training and skill development, policy formulation for the advancement of renewable energy technologies, and investment initiatives, nurturing, and extensive outreach programs.
