Indian Union Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde has voiced his desire for India to work with Australia in energy, minerals, and power generation sectors. In addition Shinde has also said he would like to see both countries setting up new gas supply plants in India.

Shinde announced his appeal for India and Australia to work together in developing more efficient ways to produce power at the first Australia-India Energy and Minerals Forum. He said developments of; use of brown coal, energy efficiency, efficiency improvements of coal power plants, hydro power and power generation technology R&D would benefit from Indo-Australia ties.

Companies in India are particularly interested in the procurement of coal and liquefied natural gas from Australia and have already invested in coal mining, copper mining, oil and gas exploration. Australian companies have also begun to invest in India in terms of exploration and there is hope for further investments to improve progress.

There is potential for India to improve in the power generation market as the country currently has the 5th largest electricity generation capacity globally and the 3rd largest transmission and distribution network. In addition having the Indian Ministry of Power involved in the National Mission on Enhanced Energy Efficiency also shows the desire for efficiency improvements in power generation.
