India and Egypt have discussed ways to step up cooperation in the renewable energy sector with experts from both the countries sharing ideas to promote clean fuel in the light of its increasing demand worldwide.

The Maulana Azad Centre for Indian Culture of the Embassy of India in Cairo yesterday organised a round table 'Renewable Energy: Lightening the path to future' where experts from India and Egypt discussed, analysed and shared the Indian and Egyptian experiences in the sector.

India's Ambassador to Egypt Sanjay Bhattacharyya said that the subject of renewable energy is particularly important in the light of increasing demand of clean energy worldwide especially when the traditional sources of energy affects the environment negatively.

Solar energy is becoming popular in several places in India including Rajasthan's desert where the government gives six-month trainings to rural women to generate solar energy in far rural areas, he said.
