In a bid to protect the environment from the growing energy needs, as many as 17 U.S. companies will join a Clean-Energy Technologies Trade Mission to India and China.
The week-long mission starting from 18 April will aim to match U.S. companies with opportunities in these fast-growing markets, where American clean technology goods and services can help improve the environment.
“As the Chinese and Indian markets continue their rapid growth, they will encounter unprecedented energy and environmental challenges. U.S. companies of all sizes have an opportunity to take a leadership role in providing innovative solutions to energy needs in an environmentally responsible way,” U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce David Bohigian said.“The companies range from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises,” he said.
The 17 high-technology U.S. companies are specialized in the renewable energy, energy efficiency, clean coal, and distributed generation sectors.
They represent innovative solutions to energy and environmental challenges in India and China and are potential partners to the countries’ business and government leaders.
The companies range in size from fewer than five employees to thousands of employees, the Commerce Department said in a release.
