The government of India said it is keen to share the latest technology in renewable energy with Africa to power the remotest and poorest corners of the second largest continent in the world, Africa. The Indo-African partnership is based on empathy, rather than sympathy, as the countries face similar challenges, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said.

Goyal was speaking at the recent launch of the third International Solar Alliance (ISA) Program on “Scaling Up Minigrids and Microgrids.”

The session on “Africa-India Cooperation on Powering Africa–Strengthening ISA and Africa-India RE Partnerships” was organized in Ahmedabad by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) as part of the 52nd Annual Meeting of the African Development Bank.
