International Solar Alliance Framework Agreement 5 Countries

by Jill & Cathy on August 19, 2023

The International Solar Alliance (ISA) has been making great strides towards its goal of promoting renewable energy across the world. The ISA is a treaty-based international organization that was formed in 2015, with the aim of providing a platform for cooperation among countries that are focused on promoting solar energy use.

Recently, the ISA signed a framework agreement with five countries, including India, France, Fiji, Niger, and Somalia. This agreement aims to facilitate the deployment of solar energy within these countries by promoting international cooperation and exchange of technical expertise.

The primary objective of this agreement is to promote the development of solar energy, which is one of the most reliable and sustainable sources of energy. Solar energy has the potential to provide a tremendous amount of energy without emitting any greenhouse gases. This makes it an excellent alternative to fossil fuels, which are the primary source of global carbon emissions.

The framework agreement addresses several aspects of solar energy deployment within the countries involved. These include the development and deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, the provision of finance, and the establishment of local manufacturing facilities for solar components.

India, which is one of the founding members of the ISA, has played a significant role in promoting the use of solar energy globally. India has set a target of achieving 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022, with 100 GW of this coming from solar energy. The ISA framework agreement will undoubtedly help India achieve this target.

France has also been actively promoting the use of renewable energy, and this agreement will help France further its efforts towards reducing carbon emissions. France plans to reduce its carbon emissions by 40% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Fiji, Niger, and Somalia are part of the vulnerable countries that are exposed to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions. These countries will benefit significantly from the deployment of solar energy as it will reduce their dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate the effects of climate change.

In conclusion, the ISA framework agreement with the five countries underscores the importance of international cooperation in promoting the use of renewable energy. It is a significant step towards achieving the ISA`s goal of promoting solar energy use globally and reducing carbon emissions. The deployment of solar energy will not only provide sustainable and clean energy but also contribute to the socio-economic development of these countries.
