The Indian Renewable Energy Programme has received increased recognition internationally in recent years. Many countries evinced interest in cooperation with India for promotion of new and renewable energy. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has been interacting with developed and developing countries for cooperation in New and Renewable Energy. The focus of the interaction for cooperation has been to explore opportunities for exchange of scientists to share experience and for taking up joint research, design, development, demonstration and manufacture of new and renewable energy systems/devices by R&D institutions/organizations of both countries and thereby establishing institutional linkages between institutions of India and other countries. Bilateral/multilateral cooperation frameworks have been established for cooperation.
