Pushing for international collaboration in the solar energy space, the German ambassador to India Martin Ney has called for the expansion of India-driven International Solar Alliance.

Speaking to reporter Martin said that, “This is a fantastic idea. Soon after it was founded, it was realized that is should be expanded. It would make a lot of sense to incorporate more countries.”

The ambassador also said that Germany has already applied to be a member of the ISA, in line with India’s desire to have Germany on board.

ISA is a group of more than 121 countries which was initiated by PM Narendra Modi and the group seeks to explore efficient use of solar energy.

ISA’s first assembly was held in October last month where it was agreed upon to open ISA membership to all UN members.

The initiative was first proposed by PM Modi at a speech in London in 2015.

PM Modi during the first assembly of ISA members said that, “Nature is now indicating that options such as solar, wind and water, offer more sustainable energy solutions. This is a great forum to work towards ensuring climate justice and International Solar Alliance could replace OPEC as the key global energy supplier in the future.”

The newest member of ISA is Botswana which decided to join the bloc on Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s visit to the country.
