Grid Integration and System Flexibility: Status and Emerging Trends in Asia
An Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) 2019 Deep Dive Workshop
With costs for renewable energy (RE) continuing to fall, in many countries below the price of new thermal capacity, RE installations continue to increase rapidly. An increasing number of countries in Asia has shifted from planning for the integration of RE to implementing changes. In this Deep Dive Workshop (DDW), a continuation of a multi-year deep-dive series on grid integration, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will bring experts and practitioners to share the latest best practices and regional examples of policies, regulations, and programs for cost-effective renewable energy integration.
This DDW built upon several previous years that USAID and NREL have organized on grid integration. Since much progress has been made around the world on grid integration over the past few years, this session is a reboot - covering global and regional status and progress. It discussed new approaches and state-of-the-art analysis, policies, processes, and technologies that are now being deployed in systems achieving high variable RE penetration.
