He favoured setting up of a consortium of nations having potential in solar energy which could join hands with India in innovation and cutting-edge research that would reduce the cost of solar energy, making it more accessible to people.

Chairing the first meeting of the reconstituted ‘Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change here, Modi said that “instead of focussing on emissions and cuts alone, focus should shift on what we have done for clean energy generation, energy conservation and energy efficiency, and what more can be done in these areas,” a PMO statement said.
