Partnerships with Global Solar Council
The Global Solar Council has signed partnerships with IRENA, IDA and REN21 to work together to help spread the use of solar energy at all levels. Thanks to the cooperation with these organizations, the GSC will enhance its global outreach efforts and publish new reports on the photovoltaic market.
International Desalination Association
The IDA is a non-profit association focused on desalination and water reuse technologies. Founded in 1985, it serves more than 2,300 core members in 60 countries and 4,000 affiliate members.
The Global Solar Council and IDA have agreed to accelerate the potential for cost reductions and innovative solar energy solutions to desalination by sharing best practices and technological developments, leveraging synergies to further develop the solar and desalination markets focusing primarily on emerging markets. Specifically, the goal is to collaborate on the development, testing and demonstration of advanced and innovative energy-efficient seawater desalination technologies that can be powered by solar as a way of reducing environmental impacts.
REN21 – Renewable Now
REN21 is the only global renewable energy community of actors from science, governments, NGOs and industry, providing up-to-date and peer-reviewed facts, figures and analysis of global developments in technology, policies and markets. The goal is enable decision-makers to make the transition to renewable energy happen – now.
International Renewable Energy Agency
With 161 Members, IRENA plays a leading role in the energy transformation as a centre of excellence for knowledge and innovation, a global voice for renewables, a network hub and a source of advice and support for countries.
International Solar Alliance
Vision and mission of the International Solar Alliance is to provide a dedicated platform for cooperation among solar resource rich countries where the global community, including bilateral and multilateral organizations, corporates, industry, and other stakeholders, can make a positive contribution to assist and help achieve the common goals of increasing the use of solar energy in meeting energy needs of prospective ISA member countries in a safe, convenient, affordable, equitable and sustainable manner.
