Regional: Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Sources and Technologies

Sovereign Project | 46258-001

Summary

The TA aims to build DMC capacity on the different solar technologies and grid connection issues, the policy, legal, and regulatory environment and incentive mechanisms (e.g., feed-in tariffs and subsidies) that are prerequisites to effectively develop solar energy. The TA will equip DMC technical staff , particularly from the main electric utilities, with the necessary skills to design and promote the appropriate solar projects for DMCs.

The outputs and key activities of the TA will be (i) the organization of an 11-day training workshop that will facilitate knowledge sharing on the grid integration of renewable energy technologies, particularly solar energy, and (ii) the development of training design and materials on issues and best practices applicable to Asia Pacific.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy As part of its knowledge management goals, ADB's Asia Solar Energy Initiative (ASEI) recognizes that it is imperative to build institutional capacity of DMCs for creating an enabling environment for the promotion of solar energy. Generally the lack of strategic capacity building and training activities are key obstacles to stimulating catalytic solar energy development in Asia and the Pacific.
Impact Increased deployment and grid integration of renewable energy technologies in the region within 5 years of completion of the S-CDTA.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Increased DMC understanding of grid issues and solutions for the deployment of renewable energy technologies and enhance capacity of regional stakeholders in developing renewable energy projects.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs Eleven-day training workshop on grid introduction of renewable energy sources, and solar technology.
