World Solar Technology Summit (WSTS) has organized by the International Solar Alliance (ISA). Around 26,000 participants from 149 countries are taking part virtually, including leading academic scientists, technology developers, researchers, and innovators.
The main objective of the summit is to showcase next-generation solar technologies to member countries. Mercom recently analyzed how technological upgrades are imperative for India’s solar sector.
It is a good platform for decision-makers and stakeholders to meet and discuss their priorities and strategic agenda towards a broader integration.
Some of the key events during the summit include the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the ISA and the International Institute for Refrigeration (Paris); and a partnership agreement between ISA and Global Green Growth Institute (South Korea) for the promotion of one million solar pumps.
Partnership agreements on the implementation of 47 projects will also be signed and exchanged between ISA and NTPC. A partnership agreement on the ‘One Sun One World One Grid’ will be signed and exchanged between the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), the World Bank, and the ISA.
As of June 2020, the ISA framework agreement has been signed by 86 countries, with 68 having submitted instruments of ratification.
