Germany to fund 125 million euros for renewable energy projects in India
Germany and India on Tuesday signed two loan agreements worth 125 million Euros for the Green Energy Corridors’ project in Andhra Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh.
Germany’s development bank, KFW, will fund 57 million Euro for the project at Himachal Pradesh, and 68 million Euro for the Andhra Pradesh project, a press statement from the government said.
According to The Financial Express, the agreements were signed at a time when Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel is on a state visit in India.

“With the Green Energy Corridors, the intra-State network will feed the renewable energy to the respective State grids and the high capacity transmission corridors and inter-State network will connect major renewable energy pockets with the national grid,” it added.
