The Minister of State for Environment Mahesh Sharma has informed the Lok Sabha that, India and the UK have launched joint research projects on water quality and energy demand reduction.

In a written reply to a question, the Minister said that the research projects aim to deliver mutual benefits and research solutions to the two countries. Sharma said the projects also aim to address shared global sustainable development goals in the areas of clean water and clean energy.

He further added that “The Ministry of Science and Technology have informed that India and UK have launched joint research projects on Water Quality Research and Energy Demand Reduction in Built Environment in February 2018.”

“Four projects to be supported under the Energy Demand Reduction in the Built Environment programme relate to residential building energy demand reduction, zero peak energy building design, integrated urban model for built environment energy research and community-scale energy demand reduction in India,” Sharma said.

The Minister pointed out that these projects will be supported by India’s Department of Science and Technology in collaboration with UK’s Natural Environment Research Council, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and Social Research Council.

Moreover, the Water Quality Research Programme would provide a better understanding of the sources and fate of different pollutants, which would enable development of appropriate technologies and management strategies, he noted.
