Indian envoy discusses exploring greater India-Germany cooperation on biomass research

India’s Ambassador to Germany, Harish Parvathaneni, paid a visit to the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and the German Biomass Research Centre on Tuesday.

During the visit, discussions centered around enhancing cooperation between India and Germany in biomass research and applying cutting-edge bioenergy solutions in India.

In a post on X, the Embassy of India in Berlin mentioned, “#AmbHarishParvathaneni visited @UFZ_de Leipzig – Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and @DBFZ_de – German Biomass Research Centre and discussed on exploring greater India-Germany cooperation on biomass research & application of the latest bioenergy solutions in India.”

“He had engaging conversations with Dr. Rolf Altenburger & @daniela_thraen from @UFZ_de, Dr. Michael Nelles from @DBFZ_de, and their colleagues on current research in bioenergy,” post further added.

India and Germany have enjoyed a ‘Strategic Partnership’ since May 2000, further strengthened by the launch of Intergovernmental Consultations (IGC) in 2011 at the level of heads of government, as per the Indian Embassy in Germany. The economic and developmental ties between the two nations are robust.

Earlier in March, German Ambassador to India, Philipp Ackermann, praised the discussions between New Delhi and Berlin regarding the Green and Sustainable Development Partnership (GSDP).

He highlighted Germany’s establishment of a working group with India on green hydrogen and expressed optimism about India becoming an energy exporter to the world in the future.

Speaking to ANI about the GSDP, Ackermann said, “One aspect of this partnership focuses on green energy provision, free from emissions… In a few years, India will likely emerge as a significant provider of green hydrogen globally, potentially exporting energy.”

“We (Germany) have jointly established a working group with India on green hydrogen, anticipating benefiting from India’s energy exports in the future,” he added.
