UK Becomes 75th Country to Join International Solar Alliance

The United Kingdom is the newest participant to the International Solar Alliance (ISA), joining hands with India and 73 other member nations headed for a common goal of sustainability.

The United Kingdom had established its commitment to the ISA last month at the London Stock Exchange as part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings. The planned collaboration between the United Kingdom and ISA comprises solar financing, developing next-generation solar technologies, and leveraging the United Kingdom’s solar business’ proficiency to support the delivery of ISA objectives.

With the joining of the United Kingdom, a total of 75 countries have contracted the framework agreement of the ISA. The agreement between the United Kingdom and ISA was signed during the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) consultations held between Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale and Sir Simon McDonald, Permanent Under-Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, in New Delhi.

Speaking after the meeting, Sir Simon believed, “Over the next decade, the UK and India will be ever more central players in global debates on security, development and protecting our planet. I’m delighted that, together, we are tackling these issues head-on as partners – reinforcing our two Prime Ministers’ desire to act as a joint ‘Force for Good’ in the world.”
