AfDB's 10000MW Desert to Power solar initiative garners global support

France was committed to providing an additional €700 million in loans and support by 2022 to emerging economies for solar energy projects, he said. It received almost $1.3 million in funding through Governor Cuomo's $1 billion NY-Sun initiative, which is building a self-sustaining solar industry in New York State. It's owned by Delaware River Solar.

Campbell Soup Co. said it has completed installation of a 4.4-megawatt solar energy system at its 38-acre Camden headquarters, including panels mounted to rooftops, on a reclaimed brownfield, and on canopies built over employee parking lots.

In the agreement signed on the sidelines of the inaugural ISA conference, AfDB will deploy plants that will bring 10,000 megawatts of solar produced electricity to 90 million homes that are now not connected to any power grid.

As part of the new agreement, ISA will support the African Development Bank's Desert to Power solar initiative -through which the Bank intends to turn Africa's deserts into new sources of energy.

"We believe the future is a clean energy economy and NY is going to lead a counter-movement to what this administration is doing to the environment and illuminate the path forward", Cuomo said as he commented on the government's oil and gas strategy. "Thank you to Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority for progressively working to steer us in the right direction". We are taking the lead in advancing affordable renewable energy solutions, as well as in promoting community solar that benefits users and taxpayers simultaneously. The Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) and Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) also announced contributions of $1 million each to the ISA corpus fund at this launch event. "It is exciting to be a part of enabling utility scale solar in IN".

IN energy company Vectren Corp. has selected First Solar to build a 50 MW solar array outlined last month as part of Vectren's long-term electric generation transition plan. Already, REV has driven growth of more than 1,000 percent in the statewide solar market, improved energy affordability for 1.65 million low-income customers, and created thousands of jobs in manufacturing, engineering, and other clean tech sectors.
