Cabinet approves India, Uzbekistan MoU on solar energy and storage


The Union Cabinet has approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between India and Uzbekistan for cooperation in solar PV and energy storage.

The agreement scope includes identifying research/demonstration/pilot projects between India’s National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE) and Uzbekistan’s International Solar Energy Institute (ISEI) in solar PV and energy storage technologies and transfer of technology. 

Based on the mutual agreement, both parties would work together to implement and deploy pilot projects in International Solar Alliance (ISA) member countries.

NISE, under the Indian ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE), conducts research & development, testing, certification, skill development activities in solar energy technologies. Its lab is equipped to test solar PV modules, balance-of-systems, and components as per national and international standards. NISE also houses India’s first solar-based hydrogen-generating facility.

ISEI’s primary objectives include high-technology developments for the use of solar energy in industrial applications in Uzbekistan; preparing proposals for the practical use of solar energy based on advanced and cost-effective technologies; and applied research related to the use of solar energy, including technologies for the synthesis of special materials and heat treatment.
