McAllister further added that the expertise of the firms could help India reshuffle the energy structure system.

"Lower Saxony is leading when it comes to mobility. We are leading when it comes to transportation, and we are also leading when it comes to renewable energies. So what we really want is that more firms especially mid size firms from Lower Saxony come to India because we think we have got quite a lot of expertise which we can give to India to help you reshuffle the structure of your energy system." said McAllister.

Meanwhile, Rakseh Bakshi, Chairman and Managing Director, RRB Energy said in order to generate profit in the energy sector, India needs to take help from Germany and follow their guidelines.

"So we have a very competitive market right now, its now really something that we are worried about because conventional energy is becoming more and more expensive, our curve is dipping down.
