SAID hosted an hour-long webinar, System Planning to Scale Renewables, on May 27, 2021, that explored strategic energy planning approaches to resource adequacy, strategies and tools for renewable energy development, and methodologies for introducing the locational dimension of renewable energy and zones. Strategic energy planning practitioners discussed best practices that can help policymakers:
- Improve capacity on strategic power sector planning in high renewable energy and energy efficiency scenarios;
- Link strategic energy planning approaches to investment and implementation programs such as renewable energy competitive procurement programs; and
- Encourage the private sector, including developers, prosumers, network operators, service providers, legislators, investors, and aggregators, to participate in energy planning.
This is the first in a series of USAID webinars on strategic energy planning. Visit the SURE Training and Events page for more info
