Energy secretary Edward Davey has announced that private finance, rather than public funds, will solve the issue of technology transfers from developed countries such as India, Livemint has reported.
Mr Davey, who visited India recently, said the UK government is looking to increase its partnership with India in sectors such as gas, petroleum and renewable energy.
He said all countries need to work to counter climate change, but it is important that developed countries commit to do a lot more than developing countries.
Mr Davey said the UK government wants to partner with the new Indian government across the board—economy, business, trade, and commerce. He said renewable energy and energy efficiency are areas the Government are working on.
