India attempts to take pole position in the world's clean-energy transformation

India attempts to take pole position in the world's clean-energy transformation”

"In this context, IRENA stands ready to work with ISA and its members to scale-up solar energy deployment as a means to expanding affordable, reliable and sustainable energy access, as well as to addressing climate and energy security concerns". Because they (ISA nations) decided it is good for them their children and grandchildren. "Bharat mein Surya ko purey jibon ka poshak mana gaya hae (Veda's consider the Sun as the soul of the world)". Of the 121 countries associated with ISA, 61 have joined the alliance and 32 have ratified the framework agreement.

In June a year ago, President Trump withdrew from the Paris Accord on Climate Change, which aims to slow the rise in global temperature by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Referring to the Solar Mamas, a group of women solar engineers from developing countries particularly African countries who have been trained at the Barefoot College in Tilonia, Macron said, "our solar mamas didn't wait for us".

"The International Solar Alliance's proposed tools to mitigate credit risk sends an important signal to the market that solar energy is a viable business", he said.

"The one trillion dollars needed for solar investments globally in the coming years will obviously not come from governments alone".

The heads of 23 nations and 10 ministerial representatives gathered here for alliance's first summit.

Modi said there should be a full ecosystem for availability and development of technology, economic resources, development of storage technology, mass manufacturing and innovation. He added that to supplement solar energy generation, India has distributed 28 crore LED bulbs in the last three years which have helped save 2 billion U.S. dollars and 4 gigawatts of electricity. "We have to increase the share of solar in energy mix", he said.

Hamid said the Bangladesh government has undertaken a number of programmes to enhance the use of renewable energy and has installed around five million home solar systems, serving around 20 million people and the government has initiated a programme to generate 500 megawatts of solar-based electricity for the national grid.

Macron applauded India's efforts in expanding renewable energy capacity within two years, from 39GW to 63GW, with solar energy growing up by 140%.

"There are financial and regulation hurdles and capacity hurdles", said visiting French President Emmanuel Macron at the founding conference of the International Solar Alliance here on Sunday. He also mentioned that his country will commit €1 billion to the alliance, through the French Development Agency.

ISA was conceptualised to deploy large-scale solar power (1000 GW by 2030) in 121 sunshine-rich countries that lie between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. "We will also provide project preparation facility to help member countries prepare bankable projects", the Indian Prime Minister said.

At the founding conference of ISA in New Delhi, Macron hailed the "Solar Mamas", a group of women solar engineers, and referred to the countries which made a decision to leave the climate agreement. "It is evident that there has been a huge surge in interest in joining the ISA, and the commitment at the highest level of these founding states, towards clean, affordable, appropriate and sustainable energy", he said.
