“I wish to point out that one of the sectors into which significant investments were committed is the renewable energy sector. These proposed investments into renewable energy generation pumped storage and production of green hydrogen and green ammonia, would go a long way in mitigating the intermittency associated with renewable energy and render it a credible alternative to fossil fuel-based generation. This would make a significant contribution in green energy space to India’s commitment towards achieving net zero” he added.
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy remotely inaugurated 14 industrial facilities today. These units have been set up with an investment of Rs3,841 crore and will be providing employment to 9,108 workers.
During this summit, 15 Sector Sessions were organised with over 100 speakers showcasing AP’s growing strengths. These 15 focus sectors include Automobile & EV sector, Healthcare & Medical Equipment, Renewable Energy, Green Hydrogen, Green Ammonia, Agri Processing Tourism, and so forth. In addition to this 4 Country Sessions with UAE, Netherlands, Vietnam, and Australia were organised for exploring opportunities for collaboration with Andhra Pradesh.
