Washington: Legislation on enhancing Indo-US cooperation in the energy sector, including assisting New Delhi in its effort to build a strategic oil reserve, has been introduced in the US Congress. Called the “United States-India Energy Security Cooperation Act of 2007”, the bill tabled in the House of Representatives urges the US to cooperate with India to address common energy challenges to ensure future global energy security.
The bill also seeks better cooperation in energy research, which fosters market-based approaches to energy security and offers promise of technological breakthroughs that reduce oil dependency globally.
