French President Emmanuel Macron Sunday pledged hundreds of millions of dollars for solar projects in developing countries, as world leaders met in India to promote greater investment in renewable energy.Macron, who in December warned that the global shift to a green energy future was too slow, said France would extend an extra 700 million euros ($861.5 million) through loans and donations by 2022 for solar projects in emerging economies.France had already committed $300 million euros to the initiative when it co-founded with India a global alliance in 2015 to unlock new cash for solar projects in sunny yet poor nations.Macron and Modi hope that the alliance will spur some $1 trillion in new solar spending by 2030 in 121 countries lacking investment in the sector.Energy and investment has been a focus of Macron's three-day visit to India.
