NEW DELHI, Feb. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — France is fully mobilized to achieve its ecological transition and build a competitive, sustainable, and inclusive economy of the future. The country ranks 2nd in Europe and 6th in the world among others filing the most patents in the field of low-carbon energies over the last 20 years. France was among the first countries in the world to adopt an energy transition framework with a National Low-Carbon Strategy and a 10-year investment plan for the energy sector – France 2030. The latter is a massive investment plan of 54 Bn € (approx. INR 4.8 lakh crores) that aims to transform key sectors of the French economy in a sustainable way through research, innovation, and industrial investment. It also aims to position France as a leader in the economy of the future, while investing in projects that have no negative impact on the environment, such as the decarbonization of its modes of production (energy, industry, transport). With this energy transition mindset, today France produces approximately 19% of its energy requirements from renewable energy and about 70% from nuclear energy.

As re-iterated by the French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs during an official visit in 2022, France is India’s steadfast partner to achieve the ecological, urban and energy transitions through both public support and private sector initiatives. In France’s continuous endeavour to support India’s energy transition amongst other sectors, Business France – a French public agency for international business development, is organizing French Clean Energy Days India 2023 along with the Indo French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IFCCI). This trade mission will take place from February 18th to 23rd, 2023 encompassing a French pavilion at the Elecrama trade show in Noida (Hall 10, H10F3).
