Private sector lender Yes Bank said it will mobilise USD 1 billion by 2023 for financing solar energy projects in India.

The announcement was made at the International Solar Alliance (ISA) conference at Abu Dhabi.

In a release, the bank said it made an announcement for "mobilising USD 1 billion till 2023 and USD 5 billion till 2030 towards financing solar energy projects in India".
