The Danish parliament has not yet made a final decision on whether to proceed with the centre, and a location for it has not yet been chosen.

Denmark’s energy ministry stated the proposed centre would receive about DKK 55 million (€7.3 million) over five years, and a decision on funding was expected to be made by 2019.

Meanwhile, the Danish Energy Agency is working with Indian ministries and national institutes as part of a strategic sector cooperation on offshore wind, and integration of renewable energy into the electrical system.

India is targeting 227GW of renewables by 2022.

It currently has more than 34GW of installed wind power capacity, according to Windpower Intelligence, the research and data division of Windpower Monthly.

Meanwhile, Denmark, currently has just over 5.7GW of operational capacity.
