To boost solar energy in developing countries, Pradhan Mantri Modi launched an International Solar Alliance of over 120 countries with the French president, Francois Hollande, at the Paris COP21 climate summit and said that as fossil fuels put the planet in peril, hopes for future prosperity in the developing world now rest on bold initiatives

UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, placed the initiative in the context of the body's sustainable development goals, particularly a related target, set in 2011, of achieving universal access to sustainable energy by 2030. "To my long cherished dream of an international alliance of solar-rich countries, President Hollande responded with keen interest and immediate and full offer of support", PM Modi expressed his gratitude.

Pradhan Mantri Modi during his address at the launch of the International Solar Alliance COP 21 in Paris said that since ancient times, different civilizations have given a special place to Sun. In the INDIAN tradition, Sun is the source of all forms of energy. He mentioned that as Rig Veda says, Sun God is the Soul of all beings, moving and non-moving.

Many in Bharat begin their day with a prayer to the Sun.

Modi said, "We want to bring solar energy into our lives and homes, by making it cheaper, more reliable and easier to connect to grid. We will collaborate on research and innovation. We will share knowledge and exchange best practices. We will cooperate on training and building institutions. We will discuss regulatory issues and promote common standards. We will attract investments in the solar sector, encourage joint ventures and develop innovative financing mechanisms. We will partner with other international initiatives on renewable energy"
