New Delhi, March 11: Praising Indian Prime Minister rendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron for initiating the Intertiol Solar Alliance (ISA), United tions Environment chief Erik Solheim on Sunday said the most precious resource in the world is “political will”. This is what the Intertiol Solar Alliance (ISA) represents, he added. “Solar energy is the biggest win for the world. As @EmmanuelMacron has noted, it’s time to be absolutely consumed with practical results,” Solheim, who was here to attend the ISA, said in a tweet.

“Solar energy is not only needed for electricity, but also for transportation, farming, irrigation, cooking stoves at home and many others,” he said. Praising Modi’s 10-point agenda for the ISA, he said it “provides a roadmap for us to make the sun shine brighter”. Seeking Solheim’s support, Modi in a tweet said: “We cherish your support to the Intertiol Solar Alliance.” An optimistic Solheim believes the ISA could help reduce technology prices. In a video message, he said the solar alliance is a milestone in the fight against pollution and climate change.

“The Intertiol Solar Alliance can reduce technology prices and can bring more fince. And that means more people connected to the grid at the better price. This means more jobs, better jobs and better paid jobs. It’s a great, big step to greater global energy security,” said the United tions Environment head. (IANS)
