At COP26, US supports India and UK led initiatives


US backs India and UK-led solar Green Grids Initiative at COP26
LONDON: The US has cooperated with the UK and India-drove Green Grids Initiative of a worldwide energy framework dispatched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the COP26 environment culmination in Glasgow. 

At a gathering of the Steering Committee of the Green Grids Initiative – 'One Sun One World One Grid' (GGI-OSOWOG) recently, US Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said that the US is eager to be back in the environment discussion and to cooperate with the new drive. 

"All the energy humankind utilizes in a year is equivalent to the energy that arrives at the earth from the sun in a solitary hour," said Granholm. 

"The GGI-OSOWOG is zeroing in on the two most significant bits of the riddle. We at the US Department of Energy are glad to be a cooperate with GGI-OSOWOG," she said. 

The International Solar Alliance (ISA) under India's administration and the UK's COP26 Presidency had dispatched GGI-OSOWOG during the World Leaders' Summit of COP26 on Tuesday. 

The Steering Committee of GGI-OSOWOG includes five individuals other than India and the UK – the US, Australia and France – and has been set up to convey the vision of One Sun One World One Grid under which 80 nations have made plans to join their endeavors to make more interconnected frameworks, supporting the 'One Sun Declaration'. 

Energy Secretary Granholm told the gathering this week that the US is zeroing in on cutting edge innovations to guarantee sunlight powered chargers and frameworks are reliably productive across business sectors and geologies. 

"The US is keen on aiding nations that don't approach power by utilizing the force of the sun," she said. 

Following the pioneer level occasions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on Monday and Tuesday, every nation's representatives and authorities have been partaking in a progression of gatherings to settle the way forward to handle environmental change before the finish of the culmination on November 12. 

The Indian group incorporates Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Bhupendra Yadav and boss arbitrator Richa Sharma. 

"We should get back to the sun to save the earth. As the world advances to accomplish new statures monetarily and socially, sun oriented energy resolve the progress," said Yadav. 

"The GGI-OSOWOG drive has feasible turn of events and environmental change alleviation at its center with center around underserved regions. It will invigorate green venture and make a great many green positions," he said. 

The One Sun Declaration for GGI-OSOWOG will be centered around building new transmission lines crossing boondocks and interfacing diverse time regions, making a worldwide biological system of interconnected renewables that are shared for common advantage and worldwide maintainability. 

This will be joined with extended and modernized public and territorial lattices and supplemented with the fast scale-up of smaller than normal matrices and off-network sun oriented arrangements. 

Dr Ajay Mathur, Director General of International Solar Alliance, said: "The accomplishment of the enormous GGI-OSOWOG drive relies upon a nation's own matrix development plans, which would require ventures". 

"The network interconnections at intra and entomb territorial levels assume a huge part to decarbonise our energy frameworks by utilizing sun oriented and other environmentally friendly power sources put in various time regions and enhancing that effect overall scale. 

"We anticipate a profoundly interconnected geo-financial future that absorbs huge scope worldwide organizations and courses of action for a superior and stronger interconnected world that will keep more choices privately enabled however at a worldwide level," Mathur said. 

The World Bank has likewise communicated its help as it anticipates that this initiative should assist with utilizing the advantages of complementarity between sustainable generators and non-focuses across mainlands by getting them interconnected. 

"The OSOWOG drive can possibly coordinate the worldwide power framework into one that is outfitted towards a higher portion of variable environmentally friendly power while lessening utilization of petroleum product. 

"This will introduce another period of outfitting a lot higher portion of sustainable power promoting the energy change that is occurring internationally and helping fabricate a biological system dependent on common trust and shared advantage," said Riccardo Puliti, Vice President for Infrastructure at the World Bank. 

The ISA, dispatched at COP21 in Paris and as of late extended to incorporate all UN part states, expects to assist with assembling USD 1 trillion of subsidizing by 2030 to help emerging nations in growing their sun based power lattices. 

The drive is broadly considered to be a major and strong move in ISA's continuous endeavors to understand a worldwide sun oriented progress. 

The worldwide network idea was first declared by Prime Minister Modi in October 2018 during the principal gathering of the ISA. 

In May 2021, the UK promised specialized, monetary and research support for the OSOWOG project.
