US India Strategic Energy Smart Grid Partnership
The United States and India have planned to research on transformative power generation, based on supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles and advanced coal technologies, including carbon capture use and storage (CCUS). The review emerged in a virtual ministerial meeting of the US-India Strategic Energy Partnership (SEP) to highlight key achievements and prioritize new areas for collaboration. The meeting was co-chaired by the US Secretary of Energy. Dan Broillet and Indian Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas and Steel Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan. US Ambassador to India Kenneth I Juster, Indian Ambassador Taranjit Singh to the United States at the virtual meeting of the Minister of Energy and Petroleum and Natural Gas and Steel, Indian Secretary of the Department of Science and Technology were involved.
Key Points US-India Energy Partnership
New areas of research on transformative power generation were announced based on the supercritical CO2 (SCO2) power cycle, and advanced coal technologies, including carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), smart grids and energy storage policy is being implemented by a consortium of 30 Indian and American institutions for social acceptance of smart grid concepts as distributed system operators, distributed energy resources, impact of integrated solutions and emerging role of value and utilities, clean coal technology, supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) General Priorities for Collaboration in Power Cycle and Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) Technologies. cooperation between India and the United States has evolved over the years under the Clean Energy Research (PACE-R) program. collaboration between the United States and India on smart grid and energy storage is being implemented by a consortium of 30 Indian and US institutions, by an investment of US $ 7.5 million by India DST and US DoE (Department of Energy) with matching funds provided by the consortium. to adoption and deployment of smart grid concepts with distribution energy resources (DERs), including storage in distribution networks for its efficient and reliable operation and policy directions for social acceptance, The value of integrated solutions and emerging role of utilities as distribution system operators. Professor Sharma also stated that US-DOE on clean coal technologies, supercritical carbon dioxide (SCO2) power cycle and carbon capture utilization storage (CCUS) technologies, And the dialogue between India's DST has moved forward and common priorities for cooperation have developed. He also said that one of the notable outcomes of the talks is participation in the multilateral forum for fast growing CCUS Technologies in India, through which avenues have been paved for possible US-India cooperation. And India share an above mentioned approach to energy security and energy access. Both countries understand the importance of clean energy research, development and innovation through joint research and development (R&D), through the US-India Partnership for Clean Energy Research (PACE-R) to increase smart grids and energy storage headed Flexibility and reliability of power grids.
