Aim is to combine a massive increase in solar and wind power with international networks
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden are among the world leaders launching the green grids initiative today at COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland.
The announcement was made at a virtual session on accelerating clean technology.
The aim is to combine a massive increase in solar and wind power with international grids on every continent, connecting energy-rich locations such as sunny deserts and windy coastlines.
This will include large-scale solar power plants, wind farms and grids with rooftop solar and community grids, including village minigrids, to ensure a reliable, resilient and affordable supply of clean energy for all.
Overall, the aim is to accelerate the energy transition in all parts of the world to stay within a safe global carbon budget.
The Green Grids Initiative – One Sun One World One Grid will be coordinated by a Ministerial Steering Group to include France, India, UK and the US, plus representatives from Africa, the Gulf, Latin America and South-east Asia.
