International Solar Alliance is an action-oriented, member-driven, collaborative platform for increased deployment of solar energy technologies in ISA member countries. The ISA is working to enhance energy security, energy access and energy transition in member countries.
The ISA provides a dedicated platform for cooperation among member countries, through which the global community, including governments, bilateral and multilateral organizations, corporates, industry, and other stakeholders, can contribute to help achieve the common goal of increasing the use of solar energy in meeting energy needs of ISA Member countries, in a safe, convenient, affordable, equitable and sustainable manner.
As an action-oriented organization, the ISA aims at lowering the cost of technology and finance and thereby facilitate deployment of over 1,000 GW of solar energy and mobilize more than USD 1,000 billion into solar power by 2030 in Member countries. The ISA envisions to enable the full ecosystem for availability and development of technology, economic resources, and development of storage technology, mass manufacturing and innovation. The reduced cost of technology would enable the undertaking of more ambitious solar energy programmes. Noting that Solar is key source of affordable and reliable energy, successful project implementation could play significant role in achieving the universal energy access goal (SDG 7).
The ISA has 67 Member countries. Working through its six programmes viz. Solar Applications for Agricultural Use, Affordable Finance at Scale, Solar Mini Grids, Solar Rooftops and Solar E-mobility & Storage and Solar Parks, the ISA has established itself as an Accelerator (by creating a pipeline of solar projects worth USD 5.5 Billion by aggregating demand from Member countries) Facilitator (by financing solar projects in member countries) Enabler ( by initiating several capacity building initiatives like trainings, fellowship, and Solar Technology and Application Resource centres) Incubator (SRMI initiative in 20 countries)
