About the International Solar Alliance (ISA)
It is an Indian initiative, which was launched jointly by Prime Minister of India Mr Narendra Modi and H.E. François Hollande, President of France on 30 November 2015 in Paris, France on the sidelines of the 21st Conference of Parties (CoP 21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
What does it do?
The ISA Assembly is the main decision-making body of the alliance and it decides on various administrative, financial and program-related issues.
As an action-oriented organisation, the ISA brings together countries with the rich solar potential to aggregate global demand, thereby reducing prices through bulk purchase, facilitating the deployment of existing solar technologies at scale, and promoting collaborative solar R&D and capacity building.
