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.
He further encouraged more interaction with Norwegian firms as he saw a great potential in this field.
Mr Chandra also noted with regret that there were not many Norwegian companies showing interest yet, but ensured that a collaborative effort between Norway and India could lead to great results.
CEO of the Council of Energy, Environment and Water, Dr Arunabha Ghosh, emphasised, “The ambitious plans of road transport electrification in India are expected to translate into a much higher demand for batteries. The battery demand in India in 2030 would be five times the global battery demand today. For reducing the manufacturing costs further, the auto industry needs to make massive investments in production platforms for critical components in the EV value chain.”
The seminar saw attendance of high-level participants from business, government, civil society and media to discuss the future of transport in India in light of the Norwegian experience on EVs and the technical solutions in green shipping.
