September 20, 2021 |

In India, the Indian Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) announced the launch of the India-US Task Force on Biofuels.

The announcement was made earlier this month during the India-U.S. Strategic Clean Energy Partnership dialogue led by Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India, and Hon’ble Jennifer M. Granholm, U.S. Secretary of Energy. U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) will serve as the Secretariat for the Task Force.

The newly launched India-US Task Force on Biofuels will integrate private and public sector inputs towards energy security, promote the exchange of the latest technology and encourage the adoption of business models in the Indian and U.S. markets to accelerate the development of the biofuels sector and further strengthen the U.S.-India relationship. The task force will report its findings to the U.S.- India Strategic Clean Energy Partnership (SCEP).

The task force will provide Indian and U.S. industry stakeholders, thought leaders in the biofuels/ethanol space, academia, and technical specialists a platform to interact with each other in a meaningful way. The Task Force will be co-led by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas and the U.S. Department of Energy.
