According to the Country Advisor at GEAPP, India, PK Sinha, as GEAPP aims to emerge as the pillar of support for energy transition in the country, the team is driven to initiate a change for achieving a sustainable and clean energy future.
GEAPP’s India Head, Saurabh Kumar commented that with engaged partnerships, a passionate team, and cutting-edge technology, the team is aimed at transforming industries and driving sustainable growth for the nation.
