India can become massive market for green solutions: Norwegian Envoy

New Delhi, Dec 6 (UNI) Norway is currently the world’s demonstration project for green transport solutions and India can become a massive market for green solutions, Norwegian Ambassador to India, Nils Ragnar Kamsvåg said here on Wednesday.
Addressing a seminar greening the transport sector in India, Kamsvåg said, “The target of 100 percent Electric Vehicles (EVs) by 2030 set by the Indian government is both ambitious and inspiring. We believe India should set a similar target for their shipping fleet. The switch from fossil fuels to electric power will be beneficial for India’s energy security, manufacturing, local air pollution and the reduction of greenhouse gases. Right now, India has the opportunity to leapfrog transport infrastructure based on fossil fuels and choose to develop green transport solutions.”
Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Shipping Abhishek Chandra said that India will be very keen to work with Norway on developing maritime clusters.
