Grid Integration Webinars

We have offered dozens of training webinars on priority clean energy policy topics that policymakers in countries around the world can adapt for their own use. Many expert panelists and thousands of policymakers and others have participated in these unique training opportunities. Please consider joining us for one of our upcoming webinars. Or, browse the recorded webinars listed below.

Training on the renewable energy zone (REZ) approach, which provides a policy framework for planning new transmission to encourage utility-scale renewable energy development in areas that have the highest likelihood of being cost-effective. Learn more.
An introduction to the considerations associated with advancing the use of wind and solar forecasts to more efficiently integrate variable renewable energy into the grid. Learn more.
An introduction to the key concepts for understanding the value of battery energy storage systems; a review of the services they can provide to the grid; and an exploration of when, where, why and how they can be deployed economically. Learn more.
A discussion of the challenges and possible options for mini-grids after the main grid arrives that will include country-specific case studies from Asia and Africa, as well as the potential requirements needed to achieve a relatively seamless interconnection. Learn more.
A review of original approaches taken by—and lessons learned from—GRID4EU, a European project on integrating renewable energy Learn more.
Investigation of the different policies that mini-grids warrant and the requirements of sustainable mini-grid electrification programs Learn more.
A review of electricity access in Africa and private investment in the microgrid sector and the role of the Quality Assurance Framework can play. Learn more.
A review of the challenges of integrating significant quantities of variable renewable energy to the grid and the emerging solutions that policymakers, regulators and grid operators have taken to integrate wind and solar and meet renewable energy targets. Learn more.
Introduction to this a test-bed project, which has become one of the world’s largest smart grid communities Learn more.
