Sweden is keen on working with Indian companies engaged in innovation in sustainable energy, said Mr Micael Hagman, Deputy Director, Indo-Swedish Environment Technology Cooperation.

Speaking at a seminar, Sustainability by Sweden – Water to Energy, organised as part of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week here on Friday, he said Swedish Energy Agency was looking for new collaborative projects in Andhra Pradesh.

It is now engaged in some energy projects in Delhi, Pune and Visakhapatnam, and is in the process of opening Bio-Compressed Natural Gas filling stations in some locations.

Mr B. Sam Bob, Principal Secretary, Municipal Administration, Government of Andhra Pradesh, said urban development was rapid in the State. “From 100 urban municipalities 10 years ago, the number has now increased to 150, unleashing many challenges.”

There was a need for developing low-cost technologies that can generate energy from solid water, he added.
