Representatives of some of New Zealand's leading renewable energy and clean technology companies are heading to India to drum up new business with the help of Communications Minister Amy Adams.

A New Zealand trade delegation will be in India from today until September 25.

Representatives from Astrolab, CarbonScape, Solar Bright, Pacific Rubber Recycling, Environmental Management Services, ESG Asia Pacific, Windflow Technology, Gallagher Fuel Systems, Greenhouse Capital and Callaghan Innovation are on the trip.

"This visit is an opportunity to enhance trade and business links between India and New Zealand while showcasing our innovative technology in the CleanTech and renewable energy sectors," Ms Adams says.

Two-way trade in goods and services between India and New Zealand was worth $1.9 billion in the year to March 2015.

Ms Adams will go to the Renewable Energy India Expo near New Dehli and meet Indian ministers and will also visit Bangalore.

The expo showcases products from solar, wind, biomass fuel, small hydro, geothermal and the energy efficiency sectors.
