During his address, the US envoy emphasised that the US would like to deepen the connections between cities like Los Angeles and Mumbai by convening the first US-India cities exchange.

As per the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, both countries have been closely engaged to work in the renewable energy landscape. In August last year, both countries held a meeting to launch the new US-India Renewable Energy Technology Action Platform (RETAP) under the Strategic Clean Energy Partnership. The RETAP was announced in 2023 in Washington DC during PM Narendra Modi's visit to the US. Under the RETAP both countries initially focused on green/clean hydrogen, wind energy, long long-duration energy storage, and explored geothermal energy, ocean/tidal energy, and other emerging technologies.

During the meeting, issues such as hydrogen, energy storage, wind, geothermal energy, and marine renewable energy technologies, and clean energy deployment programs were discussed. (ANI)
