Greetings from the Secretariat of the International Solar Alliance! It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to the First World Solar Technology Summit, being hosted by the International Solar Alliance (ISA) on a virtual platform on September 08, 2020. The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi has agreed to grace the occasion.
2. ISA, an intergovernmental organization currently with sixty-seven members has been conceived as a unique international platform for cooperation among countries with the mutual goal of ramping up solar energy by aggregating markets, and taking solar power applications to scale to improve energy access.
3. The First World Solar Technology Summit (WSTS) aims to bring together key stakeholders and innovators from the governmental, non-governmental and private sectors to discuss recent developments in the field of solar energy and related market trends. The primary objectives of this Summit are to showcase the state-of-the-art next generation solar technologies that can help countries leapfrog to a decarbonized grid, achieve SDG7 and promote the uptake of other solar applications. ISA will also deliberate on the way forward to make available technology at a reasonable and affordable cost for all.
4. We are putting together a spectacular line of speakers, that include Hon’ble Ministers from ISA Member countries, Nobel Laureates, CEOs of global technology companies, academicians, and pioneers in research from across the world.
5. The Summit, beginning at 16:30 IST with the Plenary Session to be addressed by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and a galaxy of eminent speakers will be followed by the Global CEO’s Session, four Technical Sessions running in parallel and will conclude with a Valedictory Session. The Summit is scheduled to end at 21:30 IST. The Concept Note of the Summit is attached with this mail for your kind reference.
