India's collaboration with the Japanese think tank in the energy space IEEJ will help it develop a possible energy mix for the country in the years to come, Goyal said.

Goyal is scheduled to attend the 8th India Japan Energy Dialogue during his visit.

A right energy mix is a balance between reliable conventional power plants and environment friendly energy resources.

Goyal on Tuesday held talks with his Japanese counterpart Motoo Hayashi, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry wherein they discussed a wide range of issues related to the energy sector, deepening the ongoing co-operation.

This is the first ministerial level visit from India to Japan after the visit of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to India in December 2015.

Goyal invited his Japanese counterpart to visit India for the 9th Energy Dialogue, at a mutually convenient time, in 2017.
