Piyush Goyal wants Africa to join ISA club in clean energy

NEW DELHI: Power Minister Piyush Goyal today called upon African nations to join the International Solar Alliance (ISA) to promote the renewable source of energy across the globe. 

“African countries would benefit immensely by joining the ISA that is headquartered in New Delhi,” Goyal said while addressing the 11th CII-Exim Bank Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership here. 

Exim Bank, the minister said, would explain the finer aspects of ISA to African governments and also work towards engagement of Indian companies for solar projects in Africa through the line of credit (LoC) route. 

He suggested that India and Africa should deepen partnerships for development of micro grids and off grids as part of efforts for realisation of U’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) well before year 2030.
