India and the UK would explore opportunities to work in the energy efficiency sector.

“We are discussing a lot of possibilities of how we can work together. We are not on anything specific at the moment, we want to explore what could be done for UK and for India,” said Baroness Verma, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department of Energy, UK.

Verma also unveiled the Indo-UK clean energy forum at the CII conference on Energy Efficiency Technology & Financing in the national capital on Friday.

“It will be a very good vehicle in bringing together the engagement of policymakers, researchers and think tanks,” Verma said.

The Indo-UK clean energy forum aims to enhance and experiment Indo-UK activities.

“We have already started to introduce long-term collaborations in clean energy especially with investments in the energy sector. We all share common difficulties around energy and we collectively globally recognise the importance of energy efficiency,” Verma explained.

The UK targets to achieve 11 per cent energy efficiency improvement across all sectors.

Verma also met Minister of State for Power (Independent Charge) Jyotiraditya M. Scindia to discuss the initiatives that can be taken by the two countries towards energy efficiency.
