In support of the development of the ASEAN Power Grid (APG), the IEA has undertaken a quantitative assessment of the impact of regional power system integration in ASEAN to accommodate the growing share of variable renewable energy (VRE), which consists of solar and wind generation.

Offshore wind is a rapidly maturing renewable energy technology that is poised to play an important role in future energy systems. In 2018, offshore wind provided a tiny fraction of global electricity supply, but it is set to expand strongly in the coming decades into a $1 trillion business.

This report explores how various political and financial measures could help to “de-risk” renewables investment using onshore wind investments in Serbia and Greece as case examples. The financing costs for renewable energies in Southeast Europe have been significantly higher than for conventional power plants.

The Ministry issued Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy on 14.05.2018 (along with its amendment on 11.10.2018) with the objective to provide a framework for promotion of large grid connected wind-solar PV hybrid system for optimal and efficient utilization of transmission infrastructure and land, reducing the variability in renewable power generation and a

For many years, offshore wind was the expensive cousin of onshore wind with generation costs in the range of $150 to $200 per megawatt hour (MWh).

Reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is at the heart of the world’s accelerating shift from climate-damaging fossil fuels towards clean, renewable forms of energy. In addition to fulfilling the Paris Agreement, renewables are crucial to reduce air pollution, improve health and well-being, and provide affordable energy access worldwide.

This brief demonstrates that the energy transition in the countries in which energy demand is accelerating is constrained by availability and affordability of finance. It examines the demand for capital in emerging economies and their current political economy and investment landscape.

The Rajasthan government has released a draft of new hybrid policy titled, ‘Rajasthan Wind and Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy, 2019’. The largest state in the country, Rajasthan has come up with a draft of the solar-wind hybrid policy that aims to achieve 2000 MW Wind Power capacity.

The Andhra Pradesh Government’s move to review and bring down the purchase cost of wind and solar energy could aggravate the problem of delayed payments from distribution companies.

This technical guide is the first in a series of four technical guides on variable renewable energy (VRE) grid integration produced by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) of the World Bank and the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership (GSEP).
