India positioned as global leader in clean energy supply chain diversification

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, speaking at the launch of the 'Partnership for Resilient and Inclusive Supply-chain Enhancement' during the World Bank-IMF Annual Meetings in Marrakech, Morocco, stated that India is well positioned to bolster and diversify global supply chains. She highlighted India's robust climate initiatives outlined in its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), particularly emphasising the ambitious transition to clean energy.

Sitharaman underscored the alignment between the RISE partnership and India's domestic policy focus on Clean Energy, emphasising the G20 India Presidency's consensus on rapidly increasing renewable energy capacity. She commended Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Global Biofuels Alliance initiative, emphasising its role in fostering international cooperation on sustainable biofuels and clean energy innovation. The New Delhi Leaders Declaration, she noted, advocates tripling global renewable energy capacity by 2030.

India's priorities in the clean energy sector, including solar, offshore wind, green hydrogen, and battery storage, were emphasised. Sitharaman highlighted India's achievement of the previous target of 40% non-fossil fuel-installed electric capacity ahead of the 2030 deadline and the new target of 50%. She emphasised India's commitment to reducing energy storage costs and decreasing emissions intensity by 45% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels.

Sitharaman emphasised India's robust economy and its policy intent at the highest level, asserting that India is well-equipped to strengthen and diversify global supply chains and expand its role in the supply chain of clean energy products. The RISE partnership, an initiative by the World Bank and G7 Japan Presidency, facilitates collaboration between G7 members, developed nations, and low- and middle-income countries, fostering enhanced cooperation on global issues related to supply chain diversification of clean energy products and addressing climate change.
