The U.S. has partnered with the UK- and India-led Green Grids Initiative for a global energy grid launched by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow earlier this month.
The International Solar Alliance (ISA) under India's presidency and the UK's COP26 Presidency had initiated GGI-OSOWOG (Green Grids Initiative - "One Sun One World One Grid") during the World Leaders' Summit at COP26.

The Declaration for GGI-OSOWOG will be focused on building new transmission lines crossing frontiers and connecting different time zones, creating a global ecosystem of interconnected renewables that are shared for mutual benefit and global sustainability.

The Steering Committee of GGI-OSOWOG, which has five members, namely India, the UK, the US, Australia and France, has been set up to deliver the vision of "One Sun One World One Grid" under which 80 countries have resolved to combine their efforts to create more interconnected grids.

The World Bank has also expressed support as it expects this initiative to help leverage the benefits of complementarity between renewable generators and non-centers across continents by getting them interconnected.
