France, India and 193 other countries have signed the Paris Agreement and committed to ambitious actions against climate change, including a transition towards clean energies. The time for action has already started and everyone is needed on board. 

Technology is a big part of the collective challenge we face. Integration of renewable energies to the grid, intermittence management, storage, electric mobility, high-performance solar panels are just some examples of these technological challenges. Energy transition cannot happen without progress in technology and innovation.

Therefore, institutions, governments, research centers, and companies must work closely together to achieve our common goal to drastically limit global warming. 
France and India are very close partners in the energy sector. Let us find out what French companies and their Indian partners are doing together to develop and implement new technologies that the world needs.
