Abstract: After the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, India changed its strategy toward China, and the bilateral relationship was severely deteriorated. At present, positive developments have been made in the border standoff between China and India, which would help improve the bilateral relations. As there were substantial divergences of cooperation in traditional areas between China and India, it is very likely that they will seek new areas to achieve an all-win result in the future. By comparing the characteristics of solar energy and wind energy industries in China and India, this paper finds that on the basis of good cooperation in photovoltaic (short for PV) industry between the two countries, there is still a large space for cooperation in PV manufacturing in the future. Both countries are facing the dilemma of lack of independent research capability of core wind power technologies, so there is also potential for cooperation in the field of wind power technology.
