The goal of the Global Alliance of Solar Energy Research Institutes is to accelerate progress toward shared solar research and development goals as well as to ensure sustainable long-term use of solar energy. The main focus of the Global Alliance of Solar Energy Research Institutes will be a researcher exchange program where each organization will send researchers to the other participant’s labs for collaborative research lasting anywhere from six months to two years.
