In partnership with the International Solar Alliance (ISA)
ISA is conceived as a coalition of solar resource rich countries to address their special energy needs and will provide a platform to collaborate on addressing the identified gaps through a common, agreed approach. ISA will establish networks and develop synergies with IRENA, REN21, UN bodies and supplement their efforts in a sustainable and focused manner.
ISA’s mission is to provide a platform for cooperation among solar resource rich countries with global community, bilateral-multilateral organisations, corporates and stakeholders with an objective to create a collaborative platform for increased deployment of solar energy technologies to enhance energy security and sustainable development; and improve energy access to rural remote areas.
