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.

Renewable Energy is one of the key areas of India-German partnership. The financing of the transmission infrastructure of renewable energy projects, the Centre and State grids will be strengthened to evacuate more green energy, the statement said.

“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.
