India, US agree to revamp strategic energy partnership

NEW DELHI, – India and the United States have agreed to revamp their strategic energy partnership to focus on greater collaboration in cleaner energy sectors such as biofuels, and hydrogen production, an Indian government said in a statement on Monday.

The statement was issued after a virtual meeting of Indian oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan and U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. The two countries will intensify efforts to take advantage of advanced U.S. technologies and India’s rapidly growing energy market, it said.

The United States overtook Saudi Arabia as India’s second biggest oil supplier after Iraq last month.
