The Clean Energy Solutions Center (CESC) is partnering with the Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility to support the region’s development of micro-grid and smart-grid infrastructure. As governments and utilities in the Pacific Islands work to integrate more renewable energy into their electricity grids, smart grid technologies and micro-grids are emerging as important tools to modernize their energy systems, reduce energy losses, increase energy access and build resiliency. This presentation explored challenges and opportunities from the increasing number of micro-grid and smart grid technologies being deployed in the Pacific. Policy, finance, and technical opportunities were discussed in support of governments, utilities, and energy professionals to further progress towards their ambitious targets for renewable energy and energy access.
