USISPF hosts Industry Roundtable with Asst Secy Pyatt talks US-India collab for clean energy



US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) hosted an industry roundtable with Geoffrey Pyatt, Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Energy Resources, U.S. Department of State. The roundtable allowed forum members to discuss the clean energy transition in India and how a U.S.-India collaboration could help accelerate the deployment of clean energy solutions.

Assistant Secretary Pyatt oversees the Department of State’s efforts to develop and execute international energy policy through diplomatic and programmatic engagement that promote a low-emissions future, energy security for the United States, its allies, and partners, as well as economic prosperity through sustainable, affordable, and reliable energy access.

USISPF wishes to feed the result of these discussions with Assistant Secretary Pyatt into the broader strategic and commercial cooperation between the two democracies, especially as the world begins preparation for the COP28 in UAE later this year and the G20 to be held in India. The US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) is committed to creating a powerful partnership between the United States and India. As the only independent not-for-profit institution dedicated to strengthening the U.S.-India partnership in Washington, D.C., and in New Delhi, USISPF is the trusted partner for businesses, non-profit organizations, the diaspora, and the governments of India and the United States.

The dialogue brought together an eclectic mix of leaders from both the private sector and public sector, across both the United States and India to brief the Assistant Secretary on the private sector’s contribution towards India’s energy security and energy transition, under the Strategic Clean Energy Partnership (SCEP) framework.

Speaking at the event, Sharmila Barathan, President – of Corporate Affairs and Policy, GE South Asia said, “US industry has made significant win-win investments in the country to address the pressing sustainability challenge of decarbonization. There is perhaps no better time for US industry to reinforce their partnership in the energy transition of India.”

Mr. Geoffrey Pyatt, Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources, US Department of State stated– “The U.S.-India energy, resources, and climate agenda is one of the most important that we have anywhere in the world.  We have extraordinary opportunities to collaborate – to build innovative partnerships between our governments, companies, laboratories, and entrepreneurs –on issues that are central to the energy transition process, including the future hydrogen economy, carbon sequestration, clean technology supply chains, and critical minerals.”
