Time of event

15:00–18:00 (Tokyo time)

Virtual Workshop Summary

Pressing environmental, social, and political challenges are accelerating Asian economies’ transition towards a resilient energy system. While the cost-competitiveness of solar and wind energy continues to improve, renewable energy consumption remains constrained by the lack of necessary policies, technologies, and infrastructure to manage intermittent generation from renewable energy sources.

This ADBI virtual workshop featured new research on the investment, technology development, and reforms needed to promote the integration of renewable energy in the energy systems of Asia’s developing economies. The workshop spotlighted ways to manage intermittent generation from renewable energy sources, drawing upon case studies and lessons learned.

Objectives
  • Promote the integration of renewable energy in energy systems in developing Asian countries
  • Spotlight infrastructure, technology, and policy gaps and solutions
Participants
  • Policy makers and researchers from think tanks and academia
Output
  • Greater awareness of renewable energy integration challenges and opportunities in developing Asia
  • Improved policy dialogue and research for enabling renewable energy development in the region
  • Research papers featured during the webinar to be considered for publication in one or more journal special issues and an edited book
