In facing the challenges of energy security and climate change, some developing member countries (DMCs) have taken the lead in promoting renewable energy. At the same time, expectations are raised for smart grid technology out of concern that unstable output of renewable energy will adversely affect the power systems which the power from renewable energy will be fed into. In this context, during the second meeting of the Asia Solar Energy Forum in Tokyo, Japan, in December 2010, several South Asia DMCs asked the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide capacity development technical assistance (TA) for developing the smart grid. The concept paper was approved on 20 May 2011 and further discussed during the Workshop for Solar Energy and Smart Grid in Jodhpur, India, in September 2011.
