  • Preparation of Detailed Project Reports and sharing of best-practices and successful case studies;
  • Exchange best practices and work with member countries in designing financing instruments to mitigate risk and catalyse partnerships to boost investment;
  • Share perspectives on developing electricity systems;
  • Development of standards, specifications and test protocols for solar energy systems;
  • Generate and diffuse key learning on new technologies;
  • Encourage collaboration in solar resource mapping in member countries and in deployment of suitable technologies;
  • Facilitate preparation of plans for solar energy development and deployment;
  • Encourage industry cooperation among ISA member countries;
  • Forge cooperative linkages on development of Centre of Excellence for R&D in ISA member countries; and
