International Solar Alliance (ISA) and Elsevier have announced that they have jointly launched Solar Compass, a new focussed journal at United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26, in Glasgow.

The launch event was attended by H.E Mr. Stephane Crouzat, Ambassador for Climate, Government of France, and H.E. Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, International Solar Alliance, releasing the first official call for papers to authors around the world.

ISA's vision is for a rapid increase in solar energy usage so that the global community can achieve an ambitious goal of net-zero carbon emissions by mid-century, to limit the global temperature, rise to 1.50C. Achieving this target will be an incredible challenge, but it is essential to avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change.

Distinguished Professor Yogi Goswami, University of South Florida, and recently announced Editor-in-Chief of Solar Compass said: "There is no one silver bullet to achieve the net-zero goal. It will require a multi-pronged approach on new, innovative, and more efficient technologies, lower-cost manufacturing at scale, investments at scale to support entrepreneurship in new technologies, and financing at the consumer end to ensure adoption, while also taking care of the global societal issues to ensure access for all people of the world."

To help meet this challenge and share transformative information on policy, financing, technology, and case studies with stakeholders, and fill the gap in information needed to accelerate the use of solar energy, ISA and Elsevier are joining forces to launch Solar Compass.

"With the launch of this Journal, we have set the organization on a path to deliver solar technologies of the future that help in the faster global energy transition," said Dr. Mathur.
