India and France have launched a programme with $1 trillion potential to help developing countries harness fully their solar resources for a clean energy future to meet the “biggest challenge humanity has ever faced”.
Power minister Piyush Goyal and French environment minister Segolene Royal announced the solar finance programme that aims to lower the cost of finance and facilitate the flow of more than $1 trillion investment to members of the International Solar Alliance (ISA).

A second programme they launched at the ISA meeting held during the signing ceremonies for the Paris Climate Change Agreement here aims to make available solar technology for farmers. The meeting was attended by representatives of over 25 countries including the US, Brazil,
Beyond providing clean energy and dealing with climate change, the harnessing of solar energy was also about energy security, Goyal said.
Royal said: “I would like to emphasise the cooperation we have had with India, which is exceptional.”
“We will have to leverage our energies on (building solar) infrastructure,” she said. The ISA member nations can count on France and India to scale up the programmes for the “energy of the future”, she added.
Explaining the benefits of solar-rich nations collaborating through the ISA, he said it would provide benefits of scale leading to reduction in prices; promotion of collaboration in research and development; and wider deployment of solar technologies.
The ISA is about “all of us working toward a shared vision, a shared goal to take the solar initiative forward”, he said.
The ISA, which was launched at the Paris Climate Change Summit last year by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Francois Hollande, seeks to empower solar-rich countries located between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, many of which have at least 300 days of sunshine, and share common challenges and opportunities.
